Welcome to CityCanine, the best in family dog training available in Houston.Jeffrey Ryan, CPDT, proprietor and trainer, has been training dogs since 1989 - first in Washington, D.C. and now in Houston. [For more about our experience and background, just click HERE.]

CityCanine trains all breeds and sizes of dogs - from Yorkies to Great Danes - for household obedience, potty training, and companionship. We also offer special direction in Therapy Dog work, Rally, and AKC Obedience. CityCanine is all about creating happy and healthy behaviors in dogs and families. When that happens, pups get to stay in their forever home and the whole family enjoys the memorable experience of having a well-behaved companion dog.

Whatever situation has led you to considering training, you should know this: Change can start,and it can start NOW. Plus, change can start with little initial risk on your part. How?

Click on "Register Now" and fill out the short form that pops up.

Soon thereafter, one of the owners (either Dan or Jeffrey) will call you and ask you to tell your story. Be ready to answer this question: "What's up with your doggie?" Take your time, tell us as much as you want, vent your frustration. From there, we'll give you some straightforward options as to how to proceed. NOW, change really starts.

We can say one thing, however, for sure: if you do nothing, nothing will change. What you are experiencing with your pup daily, is going to be what you experience for the next decade. Call us! Let's do something different!

CityCanine offers varied types of training programs:

  • Board and Train: this program addresses your whole pack: you (alpha), your family, and the dog, by having us teach the dog in a summer-camp environment, then instructing you (on leash handling, commands, etc) in two included private lessons. Also includes entrance (no extra charge) to basic obedience class for long-term behavioral maintenance. It's a program designed to develop the most memorable Companion Dog you've ever had!
  • Obedience Training Classes for all levels: Basic Obedience, Advanced, Rally, and Obedience Show Preparation

  • Private Lessons: 1 hour sessions working intensely with you and your dog on your specific issues.

  • For advanced canine enthusiasts, we also offer a background in training for Therapy Dog Work, preparation for AKC Basic Obedience Trials and AKC Rally.
