Why choose Dog Training by PJ? In addition to over 55 years combined experience in training, we continue to educate ourselves and study the most current research in behavioral sciences, learning theory (operant and classical conditioning.) Our studies include canine, feline, and leporid behavior, breed differences, ethology, and of course how people learn. Teaching you, the human, how to communicate with your dog is one of the most important things we do. And as you would expect, Dog Training by PJ is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business (since 2002) with an A+ rating.

Dog Training by PJ is the training center most referred to by local veterinarians, nutritional dog stores and other dog-related professionals. We are dedicated to our community. We are regular volunteers for local shelters and many animal rescue groups.

Dog Training by PJ is proud to assist with donations for silent auctions and more for locally owned businesses and non-profit organizations. We also help dogs in need by fostering the dog until a permanent home is found.

Service Dogs
Our trainers can help you train your dog to perform the specific tasks needed to be a service dog.
Please note there is no official certified service dog other than those trained by the specific entity. We strongly encourage you to review the information below and follow up with the ADA for specific details. We will assist you to meet the standards to call your dog a service dog, but we can't certify the dog.

Puppy Play will begin Sunday, June 20th from 2pm-3pm and then will continue weekly as scheduled. Toy Play will begin July 10th from 12:45pm-1:45pm and then will continue weekly as scheduled. Please review the Class Schedule for any skip dates or holidays. Adolescent play is for dogs that have been socialized. Play begins July 10th at 5:45pm-6:45pm and will continue weekly (unless otherwise indicated on schedule.) If you are unsure about your dog, please be prepared to have the trainer in charge make some observations about your dog being allowed to socialize in adolescent play. It is always the trainer’s discretion whether the dog may play. The socialization play gives your dog a chance to play in a safe, sanitized and climate controlled environment and the best part is you stay, watch and have fun too! Join us for these weekly scheduled supervised plays -  come socialize and your dog doesn't need to be attending classes to join the fun! Our inviting indoor training facility and educational resource center is designed to be enjoyed for many years to come and is centrally located around the corner from Meadowood Mall, one block west of Longley Lane and one block south of McCarran Blvd.
