Many of us have been "dog-fortunate." [Blessed?] That's because, in the past, we had a great dog. A dog that was so in tune with the family, it was as if - no, it was - a true family member. Might have been a dog you had when you were a kid. Could have been the dog you had as a young adult, a decade or so ago.

Unfortunately, we learn that they come, bless us with their company, then go on. And we, after a while grieving...we do finally go get another pup.

Then, we find out that one pup is not the same as the previous.

We love the new pup, and we really, really want this one to work out. But, perhaps it's this dreadfully slow learning curve on potty training...or maybe it's how the new pup greets everyone by jumping all over them. Or dragging us down the street, or, well...the list goes on. But, still, we love the pup.

Good News:

CityCanine can create those great behaviors in your new dog...and eliminate the bad behaviors. You will never replace your old, wonderful best friend. But you can have a new friend, and find new things that the new pup can bring to your family. New Good things.

We train with all positive methods. That doesn't mean your pup is going to be hooked on treats for the rest of her life. It isn't our intention that you have to carry a hot dog in your pocket for the next 15 years; there is a proven way to train positively, then go forward using random reinforceement, not constant bribery. We'll teach it all to your pup, then to you. 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 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.
