In our dog training programs, we employ a blend of science and art, ensuring that your dog achieves optimal obedience and happiness levels. The science part delves into understanding canine behavior, using principles of conditioning and reinforcement to shape desirable behaviors. We study your dog’s unique personality, habits, and cues to customize an effective training plan.

On the other hand, the art of dog training lies in the application of these scientific principles in creative and engaging ways. It’s about understanding the emotional bond between you and your furry friend, and leveraging this connection to facilitate learning. From basic commands to complex behaviors, we ensure the training process is an enjoyable and rewarding journey for both you and your dog.

Our comprehensive approach to dog training goes beyond mere obedience. We aim to improve your dog’s overall behavior, instill good manners, and enhance their problem-solving skills. We believe in positive, reward-based training methods that motivate your dog to learn while building a strong bond of trust and respect. We understand that each dog is a unique individual, and our training methods are tailored to suit their specific needs and temperament.

The benefits of our dog training programs are twofold. Firstly, a well-trained dog is a joy to live with, displaying good manners both at home and in public. Secondly, the training process itself can be a great way to strengthen the bond between you and your pet, leading to a happier and more harmonious home environment.

Investing in professional dog training is an investment in a peaceful, harmonious life with your pet. Don’t wait until a small problem becomes a big issue. Call us today at (856) 783-4042 and let’s embark on this transformative journey together. We’re ready to help your pup become the best they can be.

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
