Creating Stronger Bonds Between Dogs and Their Families

"High Hopes Dogs are Happy Dogs!"

High Hopes Dog Training helps dogs and their owners build better bonds. We're proud to have been voted the BEST DOG TRAINER for 12 consecutive years by the readers of The Roanoker Magazine. Since 2000, we've mastered simple yet effective canine obedience training methods to ensure every pup and person learns happily together.

We believe in educating both human family members and their beloved dogs together. By equipping everyone with the necessary tools and knowledge, we empower families to create lasting memories and enriching experiences with their furry best friends.

Understanding Canine Companionship

As dog parents, we view our dogs as integral members of our families, sharing love and companionship. We engage in various activities together, fostering a strong bond. However, this closeness does not automatically ensure good behavior, as humans and dogs have different ways of thinking and communicating. To maintain a harmonious partnership, it is essential for us to understand our dogs' behaviors. As responsible dog parents, we recognize the importance of learning as we commit ourselves to effective communication strategies.

Reward-Based Training

At High Hopes Dog Training, we recognize and reward our dogs' positive behaviors, rather than focusing solely on correcting undesirable ones. By fostering understanding and cooperation, we cultivate a sense of mutual respect and trust between humans and their canine companions.

Private Training Programs

At High Hopes Dog Training, we understand that every dog is unique, with their own set of behaviors and challenges. That's why we offer personalized private training programs. Considering your training goals and concerns, we create a customized plan to ensure that you and your dog receive the highest quality training, both at home and in the community.
