Are there any reasonably priced dog training programs in NoVa? Specifically Alexandria or Falls Church.

The petco on Leesburg doesn't have a training, but I'm not sure I'd want to mess with them anyways.

Hey Buddy,
I just graduated from Beginner Obedience at the Fair Lakes PetSmart. I had a great time and learned a lot! They have a very nice classroom space and I also got to practice in the store so I could learn to deal with distractions. I would definitely recommend it! The cost is around $120 for an eight week class. I know it's not especially close to Falls Church or Alexandria, but if you want to make a drive, check it out.

I went to PetSmart in Loudoun County (Sterling) and had a lot of fun! There were big dogs and little dogs and I learned a lot! The trainer has beent here for quite a while.........the rest of my "family" might go too!

I started at the PetSmart in Springfield, I wasn't learning much, because the puppy classes lump all kinds of different breeds together, and not every breed learns at the same pace

Mom and Dad pulled me out and I've learned much more on my own.

I love to- sleep... the- Pooh Bear.

I went to PetSmart training, learned the Basics... Mom didn't like the lack of attention but thought socializing me was a good idea. I'm going to get some further training in the begining of the year. My mom wants me to be CGC certified. She keeps talking about getting me a little brother too.

We're not in NOVA but does anybody have a good suggestion for Southeastern Virginia Trainers? Mom loves to take me every where and wants me to be a little angel when I'm out. I keep telling her I AM a little angel.

Don't know if anyone is interested in coming to Winchester for training but the Blue Ridge Dog Training Club is wonderful. They have a website and most classes are held in Stephens City. I have taken classes there and passed my Canine Good Citizen test and Therapy Dog International test. They also have agility trials & training. I would highly recommend them.
