Building a relationship of trust and respect with your dog starts with positive reinforcement training. At Pets in Motion, it’s the only training method we use. That’s because a positive approach reinforces a pleasurable partnership between you and your dog. And when dogs have fun and get rewards (instead of punishment), they’re more likely to repeat the behaviors you teach them.

At Pets in Motion, we’ll show you how to train your dog with respect through rewards-based training. Taught privately in your home or place of your choosing, together we’ll teach your dog basic commands, polite manners and other essential social skills. We’ll also help correct behaviors that can get in the way of your otherwise happy relationship. As Certified Professional Dog Trainers with over ten years of experience on the Main Line, we’ve trained hundreds of dogs each year. Let Pets in Motion help you build the relationship you want with your dog. Contact us to schedule your dog’s private training consultation.

From ranch dog to service dog, today Taylor’s the poster dog for second acts. Fetch the whole story…
