A Dog’s Best Friend is South Florida’s oldest positive reinforcement dog training company, established in 1994. While other companies and trainers have come and gone, A Dog’s Best Friend has continued to expand its programs, offering modern solutions based on an effective, scientific foundation to common canine behavior issues. We were the first in the area for several innovations, including the first to offer positive Puppy Kindergarten in the area, as well as the first to have nationally accredited certified trainers through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers.
We have the education and expertise to help you with simple behavior issues to serious ones. We train everything from puppies, to dogs with fear and aggression, to therapy and service dogs.
A Dog's Best Friend is owned by husband-and-wife team Tim Mullally and Teoti Anderson, both certified professional dog trainers.
