our methods

All of our trainers use positive reinforcement and rewards-based methods. This is based on the most up-to-date behavior science! 

We're also dedicated to supporting you, the humans, not just the dogs!

Helping you and your dog succeed. 

Our private dog training can help with things like:

  • coming when called ("recalls")

  • walking nicely on leash instead of pulling

  • greeting people politely without jumping

  • counter surfing

  • crate training

  • leave it or drop it

  • learning to settle

  • going to a "place" (or mat, or bed)

  • dealing with distractions

  • potty training

Check out our in-person service area! If you live outside this area, we're happy to work with you virtually.

Why train with Every Dog?

Our trainers use positive reinforcement methods and are dedicated to using the most modern, effective, and ethical training methods to help you and your dog. Our trainers are certified and do continuing education with conferences, workshops, and mentorships to make sure they stay on top of their game.

Where do private lessons take place?

We've got options! You can work with one of our trainers at our Community Center facility, or in-home. Sometimes we may also meet somewhere like a park (depending on what we're working on!) We can also do sessions virtually. Ask your trainer what would be best!

How many dog training sessions do I need?

It totally depends on the behaviors we're working on, how much time you have to practice in between sessions, etc. Most training takes time, and we don't set specific timelines because we want to give you the best help.

Do you use prong collars, shock collars, or choke collars?

No. We don't find that they're useful, and they can negatively impact our training plans. But if you've been using one, don't panic- you're not alone, and we're still happy to help you find solutions that work.

What areas of Austin do you work in?

Our trainers and behavior consultants are across Austin. While we cover most of the general Austin area, we will offer virtual options or ask to meet part way if you're outside our service area.

Can you teach my dog not to pull on leash, potty in the house, or jump on people?

Yes! We love working on overcoming these annoying, frustrating behaviors- all through teaching your dog new ways to succeed. It's FUN and we're happy to help train your dog!

Can I afford private dog training?

Every Dog has highly qualified trainers, and our training services are priced appropriately. However, as a 501c3 nonprofit we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to the affordable dog training they need.


Anyone can use financial assistance discounts to book classes or private training, using whatever discount level they need. Those discounts are typically 20-50% off, but we offer deeper discounts for those in need. We do not require any invasive questionnaires or specific income levels in order to use financial aid: we offer affordable dog training in Austin to anyone who needs it.  


Additionally, all of our training is paid on a session-to-session basis, so there are no giant lump sum payments required. You only pay for the training you need. Have questions? Let us know!
