A well-behaved dog is a happy dog, but we know that many families struggle with issues such as jumping, running away, tugging on a leash or with serious issues such as excessive barking or aggression. At Tip Top K9, we can provide you with dog training in Plano that addresses all of these issues and more.


We know that the internet provides a plethora of dog training advice and plenty of video tutorials, but using a professional dog trainer from Tip Top K9 has many advantages, including the following:


  1. We Offer Personalized Training

Every dog is unique, and, therefore, a one-size-fits-all approach to training is not a great idea. At Tip Top K9, our dog training in Plano is personalized to meet the needs of each dog and their family.


For instance, you might have a particularly stubborn dog or perhaps a rescue dog that is timid or snappish around new people or other dogs. Some dogs have an easy temperament, while others are more persnickety. A training method that works with one animal might not work with another. Our trainers will design a training approach that keeps your dog’s unique personality in mind at all times.


Additionally, some dogs need more training than others and it takes some dogs more time to learn obedience skills or to stop exhibiting problem behaviors. A happy-go-lucky dog with an easy temperament will likely pick up skills quickly while a dog with aggression issues or separation anxiety will need more time and a more intensive approach to training.


  1. We Work With All Breeds

Over the course of the last 15 years, our trainers have had solid experience with more than 130 different dog breeds, as well as many mixed breeds. We understand the unique personalities and capabilities of each breed and can adjust our training to suit your chihuahua, pit bull, Australian shepherd or whatever type of dog you might have.


Again, it’s important to note that just because you have a specific breed, it doesn’t automatically follow that your dog will be representative of that breed. This is why we always evaluate your dog first to get a true sense of their personality before creating a training program.


Still, we know that some breeds are notorious for their stubborn nature while others have super high energy, and some tend to be timid. When it comes to dog training classes in Plano, each of these situations will call for a different approach to training.


  1. We Offer A $1 First Lesson

We don’t provide pricing on our website because all of our dog training packages are unique, and some dogs need more training than others. However, your first lesson is just $1 and during this session, an expert trainer will evaluate your dog and discuss your training goals and any behavioral issues. From there, the trainer will recommend either in-home dog training in Plano or our dog boot camp.



  1. We Guarantee Our Training

Tip Top K9 is America’s top-rated dog training company with more than 5,000 five-star reviews. We guarantee that we will fix 95% of your dog’s problems (or more) and we will work with you for as long as it takes. If we can fix the issues, we will refund your money. That guarantee showcases how confident we are that we can transform any dog into a well-behaved companion.


  1. Tip Top K9 Offers Lifetime Support

When you train with Tip Top, we don’t simply provide a few weeks of training and walk away, we offer lifetime phone support and, with many packages, lifetime group training classes. Once you are part of the Tip Top family, we will be here for you throughout your dog’s lifetime.


Our Training Options

When it comes to dog behavior training in Plano, we offer three different types of training programs. We can provide you with an in-home dog trainer in Plano, dog boot camp in Plano and group dog training in Plano. Here’s a look at each option.


In-Home Dog Training In Plano

With these classes, one of our trainers will come to your home and provide you and your dog with training. And, yes, you read that correctly – we train dog parents as well as their canine companions. In fact, we even provide you with easy-to-follow homework so that you can reinforce skills in-between visits.


During training, we will teach your dog to sit, stay and lay down as well as to come 100% of the time when called. We also can address issues such as jumping, excessive barking, leash walking, potty training and more. We also can address separation anxiety issues and minor aggression issues with in-home training.


Doggy Boot Camp In Plano

This is a board-and-train option designed specifically for a “problem dog.” During training camp in Plano, your dog will live around the clock with an aggressive dog trainer. Boot camp is the ideal option for dogs with serious aggression issues, such as dogs that attack other animals or bite or act aggressively toward humans.


While it can be hard to part with your dog for several weeks, this is truly the best option for dogs with serious behavioral issues. Intensive dog training in Plano can work miracles and transform a vicious, dangerous animal into a well-behaved companion. Dogs typically stay with the trainer for two to four weeks or longer, depending on the severity of the issues. We have trained some of the hardest cases imaginable, including animals close to being put down, so if you are dealing with aggression, please give us a call.


Our Group Classes

Group classes are designed for dogs that have “graduated” from in-home training or dog boot camp. For most of our dog training packages, these group classes are included to ensure that you have an easy way to reinforce obedience skills and to provide you with some socialization for your dog.


Book Your Introductory Lesson

Again, our first lesson costs just $1 and you have no obligation to continue. However, we believe that you will find our approach to dog training in Plano to be an ideal way to quickly solve problems and improve your dog’s behavior.
