Sometimes we have "horses" in daycare! 😂 Cleo and Nox, our biggest dogs in daycare playing together!

We offer private lessons for this reason! Sometimes our other classes are not a good fit for fearful/aggressive dogs.

Positive reinforcement does not equal treats. Postive reinforcement equals increasing a behavior by adding something desirable. Don't let using treats become a crutch to lean on!

The Journey of Dog Training

To transform our dog into a Better Companion, we first need to transform ourselves! As we change our habits in how we interact with them, we become Better Companions to them and subsequently they become Better Companions for us! Let us help you become and create a Better Companion!

Check our website for classes - all are based on positive reinforcement techniques. Obedience/behavior classes from puppy groups & basic adult dog "Foundation" classes through "Junior High" and even our version of "College" classes! Check out all the "dog sports"; Agility, Trick Dog, Freestyle, Treibball and Nose Work. Our Open Play Time on Friday evenings is great for exercise and socialization and we offer a variety of workshops and seminars throughout the year.

I want to thank Deb De Frost for all her hard work working with my little guy, she’s done a darn good job! Thanks Deb and The Better Companion! Third time's a charm!! Kai got his NW1 title Yesterday at the NACSW trial in Anchorage!! But! What makes me even more proud is that we received a Pronounced in our Container search and in our Vehicle search. Those really mean a lot to me, they tell me that Kai and I are great as a team. Thanks to everyone involved in putting on the trial it was great fun! I hope to see the CO again at our trials!! Pete and Lisa thanks for BBQ!
2 little Yorkies sitting on their paws waiting for a treat. They got to be out and played with the big dogs tonight.
The little dogs got to play with the big dogs tonight since there was only two of them at the time. 
Who drew the picture of Claudia and Luc? 💕💕😊
Now that you're spending lots of time with your dog are you realizing that maybe he/she could use a little training? Or would just like something fun to do with you? Physical training centers may be closed but, guess what? They're open online! Here are a few options to get you and your dog started having fun together: Alaska Dog Sports is offering training videos on their page. They've been covering topics like teaching your dog to settle and to "leave it." Bell Creek Agility & Obedience, LLC is offering Facebook-based training classes, including puppy and adult manners and trick dog classes. The Better Companion is offering Zoom-based training classes including puppy and adult manners and dog sports like Treibball. A trained dog is always a better dog!
