Your dog could be our next graduate!

Animal Smart Training Programs

Our dog and puppy training programs in Corpus Christi are designed to give you and your dog the best possible life together. We focus on changing your dog’s behavior for a lifetime. We teach you how to communicate effectively with your dog so you can have the companion you’ve always wanted.

There is no ‘quick-fix’ when it comes to dog behavior, just as there is no way you can eat a salad once and expect to stay slim and healthy forever without effort! Behaviors need time and practice to become life-long good habits. Our training approach teaches you and your dog everything you need to know for long-term success and for an amazing relationship with each other. We give you long-term support and families who are committed to their dogs excel in our programs. Is your dog the next Animal Smart graduate?

Our Programs include:

  • Private in-home training sessions customized for your training goals.
  • Intensive day training (we train for you) several days a week for the first weeks to jumpstart the training and make some amazing progress very quickly.
  • Group activities including pack walks, Canine Good Citizen prep and testing, play group, classes with themes such as agility, scent games, and therapy dog training classes.
  • Training equipment


We are excited to work with clients who are fully committed to their dog’s training and want an in-depth training program.

We want those who see themselves as dog parents, not just as dog owners. If you are ready to invest time and money into your dog to reap the benefits of a well-behaved dog for years to come, we want to hear from you!

We can help you raise your puppy into an amazing family member, and we can help you with any struggles you are facing because of your dog’s behavior.

If you are eager to learn more about your dog and are committed to having the best possible life with them, we would love to welcome you into our Animal Smart Training family.

How to Get Started

Before we can enroll your dog into training, we want to know that we are a good fit for each other and the right trainers for you. We start with a discovery phone consultation where we can learn about the life you want to have with your dog. We want to know what behaviors are driving you crazy, what challenges you have had with training so far, and most importantly, what training goals you would like to achieve, so we can recommend the best dog and puppy training program for you.
