Welcome to Happy Dog!

Dog in Training in Pinellas
A well-behaved dog
is a Happy Dog!
Happy Dog! Behavior Modification and Obedience Training will teach you and your dog everything you need to know to have a well-behaved dog that is an enjoyable part of your family. The training will be geared to your dog’s temperament so, if you have a strong-willed dog or a shy dog or an energetic, outgoing dog , you’ll learn how to best use the dog’s personality to teach the necessary commands in a humane, positive manner.

Without training, cute puppy behavior can escalate into unpleasant patterns that become permanent, severe problems. So if you want a dog that is sociable, walks nicely on a leash, comes when called, greets you and others without jumping, treats your furniture and other belongings with respect, always relieves outdoors, sees you as the leader of the pack and understands that food on a table is only for human consumption, then you MUST train it to behave this way.

We believe all dogs of any breed and any age can be rehabilitated.

A well-trained dog is a Happy Dog! with a happy family!
