The best dog training in Las Vegas
In order to get the best quality dog training, choose a school whose philosophy is centered around humane methods and positive reinforcement. The following are reviews of three of the best dog training centers in Las Vegas that follow such philosophy.
Gibson’s Canine Classroom
Trainer Mark Gibson personally provides all classes at Gibson’s Canine Classroom. He makes the well-being of the dogs his main concern and believes that dogs that have not been trained can’t be blamed for their actions. With more than 25 years of experience using techniques that are aimed to educate and not intimidate, Gibson utilizes a technique that trains both you and your dog.
The dog training process at Gibson’s Canine Classroom involves a constant review of the progress of both the dog and dog owner, not just the improvements in your dog’s behavior. All the details of the training are explained in depth so you can optimally engage and improve your relationship with your dog.
Classes are provided in a one-on-one environment to ensure your dog’s unique personality and temperament are taken into consideration to create faster and better results. In basic command training, dogs learn hand signals and off leash instructions. Behavior training can transform disobedient dogs of any age, of different energy levels and with any type of problem, into the perfect companion. Gibson has even successfully trained dogs who were older than 10 years.
Innate Dog Training
This family-owned company was founded and is owned by certified professional dog trainer Nathan Lochner. Forming part of the local community of Las Vegas, Innate Dog Training is endorsed by local veterinarians and other respected industry professionals in the area.
The school specializes in training dogs with aggression issues, a serious problem that can worsen with time, for which it consistently earns referrals from clients. Trainers use proven methods that have been shown to work with a number of breeds and temperaments. They adhere to the philosophy of educating the owner and training the dog simultaneously.
After an initial consultation, you will be offered training for behavior modification, problem solving, obedience training, personal protection training, therapy and service dog training. You can also subscribe for puppy training in private sessions or for group socialization or training classes. Dogs can be trained at home, outside in local parks, in outdoor shopping malls, and anywhere else where pets are permitted, this so that dog learns how to behave when faced with different environments and distractions.
