A Better Dog Trainer

987 Del Ganado Rd, San Rafael 94003
At A Better Dog Trainer, we believe in Relationship-Based Training, a method that pivots around trust, respect, and the unique bond between you and your dog. We understand that every dog and owner is different, with unique goals and expectations. Our training is tailored to mold your dog's behavior while empowering you with the knowledge and skills to continue this training, ensuring a harmonious relationship.

Unlike conventional treat-based training, our approach seeks to establish you as an authority figure in your dog’s life, guiding them through the process of understanding and respecting your commands. This respectful authority is built on trust and never through fear, pain, or intimidation. Our training inculcates a dialogue of understanding, helping your dog to override impulses and conform to household rules and boundaries, all while nurturing a happy, respectful, and loving bond.
