Obedience Dog & Puppy Training Classes Available in Houston and Dallas
What sets us apart from the rest is simple; we do not put a mask or put a band aid on behaviors such as jumping and chewing etc. We get to the core of the problem, we focus on where and/or why the anxiety is happening, once we get to the root of the problem then we are able to provide guidance and obedience training as well as support to each family and each situation! We bridge the gap between dog and owner. It’s that simple!
Type of Obedience Dog Training
HYBRID style of training
Most people believe there are two styles of training, positive treat based training, and /or, negative punishment training. In fact, there are over 20 plus forms in which you can train a dog. Over the years, with due diligence, research, trial and error, Man’s Best Friend has developed a HYBRID style of training that not only has revolutionized the dog training industry but has transformed the owner and dog relationship!
Our method of training is simple, it is affection based communication and relationship training. We focus on several items:
Communication through obedience training
Behavioral Problem Solving
Technical Application of behavioral problem solving
Obedience training focuses on teaching basic obedience commands such as: sit, stay, down, heel and come. We also address behavioral problems such as: housebreaking, chewing, jumping and running out open doors.

How Dog Training Works
Dog Training Appointment
We agree on a date and time for you to bring your pet in. We make it as convenient for you as possible. We even provide the required documents in advance if needed.
Proper dog training requires the help of the entire family. We recommend that everyone who interacts with your pet participate in the evaluation session.
The dog training process at Man's Best Friend is never traumatic, painful or stressful for your pet—or you. Pets invariably respond positively to our training.
Training Follow Up

Man’s Best Friend is a licensed facility for Canine Good Citizen Testing
As of January 1, 2013, Canine Good Citizen® will become an official AKC title that can appear on the title records of dogs registered or listed with AKC. Dog owners who complete the CGC as a Title process may list the suffix “CGC” after the dog’s name.
Since the program began in 1989, CGC™ has been considered an “award,” meaning that it has not been listed on a dog’s title record.

My GSD, Mika, has been going to Man's Best Friend for training since she was about 11 or 12 weeks old. When she started at Man's Best Friend, she was already a tiny terror - all 15 pounds of her! The only thing Mika liked to do was bite and attack my other two dogs - she was extremely food aggressive and made our entire household tense. Since those early days, Mika has turned into a wonderful, enjoyable dog due to Man's Best Friend. Mika graduated from obedience school and currently is enrolled in Man's Best Friend's more advanced training programs - - and she loves it all! She gets excited to go to her training classes and she adores all the trainers at Man's Best Friend - - sometimes I think she loves them more than me! Mika's food aggression issues are gone, she's wonderful friends with our other dogs, and on walks she's completely off leash. She has become the GSD I was hoping for when I got her, but I truly believe that wouldn't have been the case without Man's Best Friend - I owe them a HUGE thanks!
