Professional Dog Training in Waller, TX

Dogs are so incredible for their intelligence, unconditional love, and willingness to learn-but they don’t come pre-packaged with all the skills they need. Just like humans, dogs need to be taught what they should and shouldn’t do. Our dog training programs are designed to teach the important habits, obedience skills, and house manners that make the perfect family companion out dogs of any breed or age.

Do you feel lucky if your dog comes on the fifth call? Do you ever feel like you’re the one being walked? Have you ever had to apologize to guests for your dog jumping up on them? The professional, proven training programs at Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort were designed with families like yours in mind.

Behavior challenges can drive a wedge between a pet and their humans. The leading cause of owner surrender to animal shelters is difficulty controlling or reducing behavior concerns. Unfortunately, at the Humane Society of Central Texas alone, almost 750 dogs were surrendered by their owners in 2019.
