Explore Pet Training with Pups Grow Up
Our training classes, with Leeann Holloway, CPDT-KA of Pups Grow Up, use positive reinforcement to teach you and your pet to communicate with each other.
Relationships depend on clear communication, respect, empathy, consideration, and kindness. Communication and training with any species is a two-way street that involves listening, observing, and then relaying information. Your dog is constantly learning everyday so you might as well help him learn appropriately! Ultimately, training your dog can help him become a participating member of your family. Isn't that what we all want?
We don't use collar corrections, shock collars, or force to train. We use science-based training methods to teach your dog what we like and what we don't.
Our indoor rooms feature gorgeous park-themed wall murals from Murals by Char. We also use the entire clinic for training, including the front lobby and retail area. When pets learn amidst distractions - varying sights, smells, and sounds - you can be confident that they will retain their good behaviors in a wide variety of situations.
Bigger Road Veterinary Center is fortunate to have behaviorists on staff with years of experience in training instruction. Leeann Holloway, CPDT-KA, and Kristen Buinicky, both pet training instructors, manage the behavior program at Bigger Road.
Begin on the right path to a well-behaved dog by planning and setting rules early. Every interaction with your puppy can be a learning experience for you both. Learn appropriate ways to reward and eliminate behaviors. Socialize in a safe environment. Play games and have fun while teaching your pup manners.
Our classes provide your family with dog training that works - through every stage of your dog's life as they grow up in your home. We've been training dogs in the Dayton area since 2001.
This is not your typical dog obedience class! We use clicker training to dramatically speed up the learning process and offer a clear way to communicate with your dog. Not sure you want to use the clicker? Don't worry, you can still get great results at our classes. We also welcome children in class and encourage them to participate.
