Dog Training Fort Collins
Is your dog exhibiting undesirable behavior? Offering exceptional Fort Collins dog training, Mandy, our on-staff dog trainer, is here to help you get the best from your pet. At Aspen Grove we can help with:
- Excessive barking or digging
- Destructive behaviors (i.e. chewing or scratching)
- Separation anxiety
- Fear aggression (people or animals)
- Shy or fearful behaviors
- Appetite or house training problems
- Introducing children and babies
- Any undesirable behaviors
At Aspen Grove, we bring Fort Collins dog training to a new level. Our trainer, Mandy, has many years of professional dog training experience. She is also a certified veterinary technician, which means there is nothing she knows better than dogs. With education and expertise in dog behavior, training, and medicine, Mandy and our capable staff are able to provide you with the highest level of professionalism the industry has to offer.
Whether at home or in our office we strive to set up your dog up for success. Our trainer uses lure training with positive reinforcement. When using lure training, your dog will successfully modify their behavior without the need for outside equipment, such as a remote collar or a clicker. Through our training, the bond between you and your dog will grow as you develop more effective communication and body language. You’ll discover how to make learning fun for your dog!
Unlike traditional dog training, we only charge for the lessons you schedule. We have options available to meet both your budget and your goals.
This is a great chance for your dog to get comfortable with the idea of being at a veterinarian’s office, in a public place, and around other dogs. Our trainer will work with you and your pet, to understand your needs and get you started on the best training plan for your lifestyle.
How do I know how many lessons my dog needs?
How many lessons you and your dog need is determined by the goals you set. Whether it’s simply making your dog more comfortable around visitors or training him for something special, Mandy can meet with you and help you establish a reasonable plan that will help you and your dog achieve.
In-home Dog Training, Fort Collins
Mandy will come to your home to observe and help train your dog on their turf. This is a great strategy for behaviors that occur mainly in your home. Some of these traits may include issues with visitors or separation anxiety.
In-home training appointments are available on Fridays and Saturdays.
In-Office Dog Training
These are private sessions with you, Mandy, and your dog right in our facility. In-office dog training not only offers one-on-one training for both you and your dog, but our office is perfect for dogs that need socialization with other dogs and people. We have an outside yard and an indoor play area available for training. Both environments are clean, controlled, and relaxed for the comfort and safety of your dog.
Dog Training at Our Boarding Facility
Training your dog while they are boarding provides a unique and effective environment because it offers just the right amount of distraction. Your dog will learn how to mind his manners in a real-world setting when there is outside stimulation that can be distracting.
In-boarding training starts out with a 30-minute behavioral consultation between you and our trainer. During this consultation, we’ll establish reasonable goals that can be met during the duration of your dog’s stay and the number of lessons required to meet those goals. When you pick your dog up, you’ll have a progress report and an appointment with the trainer to go over the home plan to continue training.

Tips for Handling Hungry Dogs
My hungry dog pesters me until I feed her. Any suggestions?
We've all done it. We give in and feed our dogs treats because it's easier to feed them than to deal with the constant begging. Don't worry, you are not alone! These dogs have trained us...
