Training Services

At Aspen Grove, we bring Fort Collins dog training to a new level.  We have a team of professional, experienced, and formally educated dog trainers. There is nothing they know better than dogs! With education and expertise in dog behavior, training, and veterinary medicine, our team of trainers is 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 your dog up for success. Our trainers use 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!

In-Home Dog Training

We offer in-home dog training to help to dog and puppy owners in Fort Collins. One of our trainers 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 a specific location.

On-Site Dog Training

These are private sessions with you, our trainer, and your dog right in our facility. On-site 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.
