Obedience Training

You and Your NEW GENIUS will be the envy of all your friends!


Here at Lone Star Pet Lodges of Missouri City and Sugar Land, we believe that every dog with some type of obedience training is a happy dog. Obedience training allows us to better communicate with our pet companions as well as strengthen our bond through developing an understanding of each other.

Whether you are just getting started with your new pup, or wanting to compete in your favorite dog sport, we have the training program to help you succeed. Call today for a FREE EVALUATION where we will meet with you and your pet one-on-one, and customize a curriculum that will meet your needs, the needs of your pet and fit your daily lifestyle.

We have many different options for OBEDIENCE TRAINING which include Puppy Imprinting, Puppy Learn-N-Play, Group Classes, Private Lessons at the Lodge Facility, In-Lodge Training, and Doggy Daycare & Train.

A key element that sets us apart from most training facilities is that instead of being boarded in an open-air kennel during his or her training stay, your pet will enjoy the climate controlled comfort of our 14,000+ square foot state-of-the-art boarding facility. Our pets are extended members of our families. They live in our houses alongside us and our children. Let your pet enjoy that same level of comfort while in training that he or she would enjoy at home. All while you enjoy the peace of mind knowing your extended family member is staying with us!
