Schedule a consultation with our dog trainers in Boulder.  We'll help you create a custom training plan tailored to your family and lifestyle.

Set your focus on basic obedience, puppy training, off-leash or advanced obedience, CGC, a Boulder off-leash permit, or behavior issues such as leash aggression or resource guarding.

2: complete a 3-week program

Monday through Thursday each week consists of one-on-one training sessions between dog(s) and trainer in your Boulder home and neighborhood.  This minimizes distractions for both dog and trainer so learning can efficiently take place. You do not need to be home.

Friday each week consists of a private coaching session with the family to see what the dog has learned and to practice it themselves.  

Videos from training sessions are sent daily. 

3: join the club

Following your 3 week program, your dog has lifetime priority access to our Petsitting Program, our Varsity Subscription, and After-School Programs like agility, nosework, rally obedience, trick training, and more!

The Traction Dog Training Club was born in 2020 in Boulder, Colorado and has quickly become a phenomenon across three different states for its unanimous 5-star ratings, its high professional standards, and its training programs that keep each dog ever-advancing.  What started as basic obedience and behavior modificaiton training for family dogs has led to dog sport classes and seminars, therapy dog certification programs, competition obedience training, in-home petsitting, and even learning opportunities for budding dog trainers.

What makes Traction such a hit? It was uniquely founded on class, quality, and a reliably elite experience.  We not only train the classiest dogs of Colorado, California, and Texas, we provide the classiest experience. You'll only find the industry's leading trainers on our team, allowing the most advanced behavior science to be molded to each unique dog and family.  We believe in building clear understanding in dogs, calm capability in owners, and an effective plan of enforcement that ensures a strong relationship is always in place.
