Positive Motivation

Thriving Dogs

Spot On Training stands for positive-based training with evidence-based outcomes, for dogs who thrive and are happy and healthy.

we do more than basic training!

Our Remote Separation Anxiety Training Program allows us to assess your dog when there’s no one home, as well as conduct training sessions no matter where you live.

We offer both live, interactive webinars as well as on-demand access to any of our previous sessions. A wealth of knowledge at your disposal, from the safety and comfort of your home.

These specialized, one-on-one private sessions are geared towards behavior issues such as aggression, resource guarding, and leash reactivity.

Dear Spot on dog training family,

It is with gratitude for the many years of being able to help dogs in the DMV, but also sadness that we will no longer be able to do so in the same capacity as always, that I write to inform you that on September 1, 2021, Spot on dog training will be closing in Washington, D.C.

Similar to many other businesses, the challenges presented by adapting our training services to COVID-19 has been difficult and after fits and starts of reopening, continuing pandemic related issues have prevented us from finding qualified and highly skilled dog trainers to serve your training needs.

As a result, we will be closing ALL in person dog training including group classes, workshops and private lessons. We will remain open for separation anxiety and isolation disorder training, as well as virtual training option for potty/crate training and emergency recall.

You have my sincere gratitude for your business and for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your family, and please keep us in mind for future referrals and positive reviews of our services. Please continue to refer us to your friends with dogs in need of help with alone time issues and potty training.

It was our sincere effort to offer excellent customer service to our clients, and we hope we were successful in our endeavors. We thank you for believing in us and sticking with us since 2009.

Toni Woods, ABCDT, CSAT, CGC Evaluator
