Why a Professional Dog Trainer?
Investing in a professional dog trainer could save you tens of thousands of dollars. Seriously – ask any owner who has paid for an unexpected emergency vet bill (or two).
If you are thinking, how can paying for dog training actually save me money? Isn’t dog training expensive and does it even work? If you are thinking those very thoughts – great, keep reading as this article is for you. Every day, new dog owners welcome home their perfect pup and envision all the wonderful things they will do together such as going on walks, binge watching their favorite Netflix series, and playing fetch. Owning a dog is very rewarding; however, as the saying goes, it’s not all “puppies and rainbows.”
Dogs are expensive and a dog that is not trained can be very expensive. We routinely receive calls and texts from people telling us how their dog destroyed furniture in their home, jumped on someone resulting in an injury or an unexpected vet bill because the dog ate something it shouldn’t. Speaking of vet bills, they can seem as expensive as a monthly mortgage or rent payment. It’s worth checking out pet insurance options and we recommend starting with an article from Money magazine. Dog training and pet insurance is money well invested.
Can you guess what is an easy fix and is less expensive than paying for any of the above mentioned incidents? Yes, you guessed it: dog training. That’s where we come in and are happy to help!

If your dog has any aggression or reactivity to other dogs or humans, it’s even more paramount to speak with a professional dog trainer to understand how your dog can be helped. It is crucial to be honest with yourself and with the trainer about your dog’s level of obedience, reactivity or aggression. The trainer’s goal is to help both you and your dog and the best possible way to achieve this quickly is through an honest conversation and assessment.
Off Leash K9 Training Blacksburg/Roanoke guarantees results and provides owners with the tools to safely manage their dog(s). Our goal is to create the optimal bond between you and your pooch, resulting in a happier life for both of you. We believe dog training is more than just teaching obedience to dogs, it’s about teaching the owner how to communicate with their dog and have their dog listen, regardless of the surroundings. After the formal training ends, the tools learned should be used daily and incorporated into your lifestyle. Dogs love routines and the training becomes part of your daily routine with your dog.
