Obedience training classes that focus on improving obedience in adult dogs in the greater Dayton, Ohio area.

Train Your Pup’s obedience classes are intended for adult dogs with no major behavioral issues and owners who want help with general dog obedience training. Unlike most obedience classes, the courses at Train Your Pup’s enrichment center focuses on providing an enthusiastic learning environment where both dog and handler are learning new behaviors while having fun.

Some of the most common complaints owners have about their dogs are: jumping, pulling, and not listening. No matter what your end goal may be, Train Your Pup can help you achieve your goal.

It is our goal to ensure that training does not become mundane. This way dogs are more willing to learn new behaviors and owners are more likely to practice with their dogs on a regular basis. Not only do the games engage students, but they also improve skills by practicing techniques in a different setting thus preparing dog and owner for outside adventures.

We believe our obedience course is essential for communication and avoiding behavioral problems. Train Your Pup has a foundation in positive reinforcement techniques so your beloved fur child will be rewarded for pleasing his or her family. Classes do not focus on receiving titles, but rather developing a well behaved and socialized member of the family Canine Good Citizen award are merely an added bonus.

The Train Your Pup Enrichment Center offers beginner obedience classes, puppy socialization, field trip classes, nose work, and an Enrichment class.

In most cases, new students will be placed into the foundation and bond building course to ensure appropriate timing and communication. Once the owner feels comfortable, Train Your Pup trainers will recommend one of our other courses to help you and your dog increase your bond. No matter what the class you choose, both you and your dog will be challenged.

Classes are geared to help owners and dog maintain a partnership during multiple distractions. 

Puppy Foundation and Socialization

Give your puppy the best start possible! Not only will your puppy get to play in age-appropriate play groups every week, we will also expose your puppy to lots of new and scary things in a positive way.


Using reward-based training methods, we will teach your puppy the foundation behaviors he/she will need to grow into a confident, well-trained member of your household. 


Classes are for puppies up to 6 months and run for six weeks.
