Dog Obedience Training

“Train your dog with the pros who train real working dogs”

The search for a dog obedience trainer is a difficult task for any pet owner. Experience, knowledge and knowing how to deliver results separates the best from the rest. A good obedience trainer must be a good teacher of dogs and their owners. A dog owner wanting obedience must be a good leader. Learning to be fun, fair and firm as needed are qualities of a good leader. The IronHeart Training Center has been providing quality dog obedience training to the greater Kansas City area for 30 years.

The trainers at IronHeart have been training working dogs for 30 years. Our obedience trainers always strive for results. They combine all of the no non-sense “Golden Rules” of obedience to pet owners the same as dogs working in law enforcement.

“A good dog obedience trainer should draw from many years of experience. They should be good with high to low energy dogs and everything in between.”

Good dog obedience training delivers results while maintaining a happy dog! Quality dog training should include methods that illustrate what it is we want the dog to do, while also building leadership skills in the owner and immediate compliance and structure within the “team”. A consultation is conducted with the owner and a course of action is prescribed.

“Good dog obedience training should deliver results”

There simply does not exist one way to train dogs. What works for one may be a disaster for another. A good trainer with a world of experience can identify the proper course of action to attain the desired results for a particular dog and problem.
