Affordable Online Dog or Cat Training

There are a lot of times when people just want a simple dog or cat behavior problem solved quickly.

Most people do not want to hire a private trainer for that because it can get rather expensive. Some private dog trainers schedule a minimum of a 4- lesson package. Of course, if someone has only one or two training concerns they usually do not want to take a 6-week dog training class either.

At Loyal Companions we offer an online Ask-the-Trainer service.

Simply ask any question about dog training, behavior modification or cat behavior training. You will receive a detailed step-by-step solution by e-mail. To ensure everything is running smoothly with your training and to answer any questions you might have, each answer will include a 30 - 45 minute telephone coaching session, given at your convenience.

We also offer this service for people training their own assistance dog.

Please check Ask the Trainer for more information.
