At BRAVE Dog Training, positive reinforcement is the backbone of our program. Through reward based training, we shape dogs that perform with precision. It is by building the bond between handler and dog and fostering their love for work that we are able to ultimately train the dogs to perform at such high levels of obedience without any special equipment.
That's right! No prong collars, no choke chains, no e-collars needed.
This is TRUE off-leash training.
We work to create real-world results, which is why our training sessions occur in a variety of locations around Leesburg, Virginia, from open fields to the Outlet Mall. Our classes focus heavily on shaping a well-adjusted, well-mannered, easy-going dog that knows how to behave in a variety of situations
WITHOUT being prompted.
we put our obedience to the test
BRAVE Dog Training believes in setting achievable goals. We offer a variety of testing and certifications which serve as milestones throughout the training process.
