Group training is offered at three convenient Atlanta locations – Cheshire Bridge, Marietta & Atlanta Humane Society in West Midtown. It’s ideal for socializing young puppies, refining the manners of overly exuberant dogs, and strengthening training and obedience skills in a social setting.
• $250 for 6-Week Course
An intensive, hands-on program with our experienced trainer while your dog stays at our esteemed facility for a two-week period, enjoying all of the socialization and play benefits of our normal award-winning boarding service. We do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to!
• $1,950 for 2-week Board-&-Train
A hands-on, 2 week class meant for dogs at daycare at our Cheshire Bridge location only. We understand that everybody doesn’t have the time to train their dog at home, which is why we’ve created a training program meant to instill specific behaviors during daycare that you can practice at home!
• $510 add-on to daycare purchase
Still not sure which option is best for your pup? Reach out and we will find your happy place.
What’s the BHV difference? 100% of our lead trainers are CPDT-KA certified (that’s a big deal in the dog training world). It means that they are, well, the best of the best.
Led by certified trainer Michael Litzky, CPDT-KA, BHV Training provides premier dog training services to the metro Atlanta area. Our proven rewards-based training is based on learning theory and applied animal behavior, taking a holistic approach that includes physical exercise and mental stimulation.
We do not use physical punishment methods. All training is pain-free, force-free, and helps build the bond between you and your dog! Areas of instruction include:
General Fear and Anxiety
Thunderphobia … and more!
