Local Dog Training & Adventure

Grounded in science. Fueled by fun.

Local Dog Paws-itive Reinforcement Training

We help dogs and their people get out and enjoy their communities with confidence!

Dogs are ready to be your friend, family member, and co-adventurer. They can even be a good neighbor as they explore your community together with you. They just need help learning how to navigate this human world they’re in. At Local Dog, we focus on good communication and proactive dog training in the Madison, WI area.

Our private and group dog training classes are based on decades of research in behavior training and fueled by fun! Because fun dogs get out more, explore more, and live more!
