Everydog Training Center is a dog training collaborative. Founded and managed by Diane Kurkjian, this training center is envisioned as a way to bring all sorts of training classes, from basic manners to dog sports, together into one canine community center. We are committed to science-based training that is kind to dogs and their owners. Let us show you how fun and rewarding dog training can be!
Together we have over 50 years combined experience with dogs. We constantly strive to learn and improve on our own training, and pass our knowledge on to our clients. Our trainers are committed to providing effective, kind and fun training.
The first step in teaching a dog what you want is to set them up for success. Arrange their environment to prevent undesirable behaviors and make desirable ones easier.
Dogs do what works best for them. We need to think about how the situation looks to the dog, and find a way to get success, perhaps by breaking the behavior down into smaller pieces, reducing distractions while they're learning, teaching an alternative behavior, or changing the reward.
Training with gentle, force-free methods improves our relationship with our dogs. Isn't that what it's all about?
We offer private, one-on-one training in addition to group classes. Please use the "send message" button below to contact us for more information.
