Welcome to High Hopes Dog Training

Frankie Goes Back to School

Most pet dog owners consider their dogs to be family members. We love our dogs and our dogs love us. We play and exercise together, socialize together, and often times, even sleep together.

This companionship does not, however, guarantee that our puppies and dogs will be well-behaved. We are different creatures, humans and dogs, and in order for our partnership to work, we humans need to have a clear understanding of how our canine companions think. We also need to appreciate the learning process and be committed to becoming effective leaders. This can all be accomplished through positive dog training.

At High Hopes Dog Training, we provide services to the greater Roanoke, VA area including Vinton, Cave Spring, Salem, Hanging Rock, Hollins, Cloverdale, and Bonsack.

Our group classes, Puppy Kindergarten, Beginner Obedience, Intermediate Obedience and Advanced Obedience, are designed to help you better understand your puppy or dog while teaching them to be well-mannered members of your family. You will learn the most effective way to become a loving but fair and consistent leader through using positive reinforcement training methods.

At High Hopes Dog Training, we give you the proper tools you will need for a happy future with your dog.

Proud winner again!!

I have worked with Hope Cogen of High Hopes Dog Training for three years, both personally with my own dogs and professionally with our rescue dogs. I have found her training methods both effective and compassionate. She is able to clearly identify the training issues and apply her knowledge and experience to each situation. Rather than the "one solution fits all" approach I've encountered with previous trainers, Hope tailors the process for each dog and each unique family dynamic. I never hesitate to recommend Hope or call her personally when a training issue arises, be it getting a puppy settled and trained in a new home or dealing with older rescue dogs that often come with behavioral problems from the lack of training or abuse they've encountered in their previous homes.
