Training at Chow Bella

At Chow Bella we strive to create the best possible training experience for you and your pet. We believe training should be fun for you and your furry best friend! We use effective, science-based positive reinforcement training to help you teach and maintain the behaviors you want to see in your dog. Using this type of training creates a strong bond between you and your dog based on love, mutual trust, and cooperation. We do not use or recommend aversive methods or equipment that utilize fear, pain, or intimidation to train your dog. Instead, we use methods that help you learn to communicate effectively with your dog and build a positive working relationship. Positive reinforcement based training is incredibly powerful. Let us show you what it can do for you and your pet!

Private training provides a one-on-one training environment where your dog or puppy is the full focus. Private training is a good option for those looking for a more customized curriculum built to match your personal training goals. Private training is also ideal for dogs that don’t thrive in a group training setting for any reason or who need to work on specific behavior issues such as reactivity. Private training is also a good option for those who wish to remain more isolated during the covid-19 pandemic.
