Silver Spring, Maryland 20902
Profile: Urban Canine promotes positive, reward-based training that enhances the bond between you and your pet and provides you with the tools to build a more joyful and satisfying relationship.

This clear emphasis on positive reinforcement gives dogs the freedom and confidence to think, learn, and experiment throughout the training process.

The dog's natural capabilities are encouraged and rewarded rather than being suppressed through the threat of punishment or harsh corrections.

From your dog's perspective they can solely concentrate on the challenge of learning and trying new things rather than worrying about the consequences of doing something wrong.Our goal is to provide an environment where dogs and their people may play, train and interact in a fun, safe, and pleasant setting while developing a positive, closer, more bonded relationship.
