Our classes are taught by certified trainers and are limited in size to give you and your pet the attention you need to succeed.

We offer two convenient locations for our dog training classes
"Best Friend" Companion Dog Training offers private in home training as well as group training classes, from puppy pre-school and puppy and beginner basics through more advanced behavior training. Having a well-trained and behaved dog will help make the time you spend together more enjoyable and safer for both you and your dog. I’ve taken several classes with Andrea Arden Dog Training. The instructors are very informed, patient, and experienced. It takes the frustration out of dog training, and with patience, positive reinforcement and fun, the relationship between dog and owner grows. They make it easy. In fact, I doubt I would have a second dog if it wasn’t for Andrea Arden Dog Training. We began in the winter of 2007 and are still going back for more, including the small dog socialization groups. Can’t say enough~ except thank you!Silvia Golz is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, certified through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers and holds professional memberships in: Force Free Trainers of Wisconsin, the Pet Professional Guild and the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Silvia is a mentor trainer for the Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training and Behavior where she works with students to help the next generation of trainers learn positive reinforcement training methods. She has been instructing group training classes for pet dogs since 1998 and added private in-home training sessions in 2003. Silvia believes in using only positive training methods while training and encourages you to also be positive, consistent, patient, and fair while working with your own dog. This is the best place! I took my puppy here for training classes and would do it again in a heart beat. The trainers are highly informed in training dogs, love every puppy, and are VERY approachable. I have recommended it to a handful of people with new puppies. They even answered questions for me months later. Top quality!!! You guys are perfect!
