Welcome to Training Your Best Friend!

Building Stronger, Healthier, & Happier Relationships

Training Your Best Friend LLC  provides you and your dog with all of the professional positive training methods and information you will need for you and your dog to live a long, healthy, happy life together.

We are dedicated to creating better understanding and a healthier happier bond between pet parents and their dogs. We always demonstrate integrity, compassion and an uncompromising commitment to excellence in the care and support of clients and their pets.

Our approach to dog behavior is to first establish pet parent’s role as calm assertive loving leaders. We encourage dog owners to understand the effect of their own attitudes, internal emotions and physical postures that have an effect on their dog’s behavior.

We strongly advocate that training should be positive and consistent. Training isn’t just about commands- it’s about guidance, balance, structure, clear communication and patience.

 We offer a broad range of educational programs and services, such as obedience classes, puppy kindergarten, behavioral training, and more. Our goal is to help dog guardians better understand how their dogs learn and communicate, and how to effectively bridge that communication using proven positive reinforcement methods.

Check out my girl! I am so proud of Raven! For the ones that know us – Raven was a handful in the beginning and I tried numerous trainers to help me with her. A huge thanks to Christie Fernandez with Training Your Best Friend for believing in her despite her breed and continuing to work with us! Christie is a huge fan of Pit Bulls and is dedicated to helping the dog/owner be successful! Becoming a breed ambassador is as much of a responsibility of the owner as it is of the pit bull at the end of the leash! WE love you!!
