*South Tampa Puppy Palace does not offer training at this time. We proudly recommend the following facilities for your training needs.

A well-trained dog always responds to a command – not just some of the time or part of the time. 

Why is this important?
    • A dog cannot SIT and jump on a person at the same time.
    • A dog cannot SIT and STAY and run out the door into traffic at the same time.
    • A dog that obeys the HEEL command will not pull you down the street.
    • A dog that responds to DOWN and STAY can enjoy being in the room with you without 
       interfering with your mealtime or guests.
    • A dog that COMES WHEN CALLED is not going to have to be chased.
    • A well-trained dog is not a destructive dog.  Destruction is expensive!
Owning a dog is one of life’s most rewarding and enjoyable experiences.  Training is one of the most important things you can do to establish and build a long-term positive relationship with your dog.  The South Tampa Puppy Palace Training Academy has multiple training programs designed to maximize the relationship between you and your dog.
