Dog Walking and Dog Training Services

Whether you are at work, working from home, or homeschooling your kids our dog walking and positive, rewards-based dog training services are perfect for your busy schedule.   We take your need to walk or train your dog off your plate so that you can focus your energy on handling the rest of your daily tasks.  We provide daily dog walks and we take it to the next level by also offering our unique Walk and Train combination obedience/walking program.  Surf Sitters training division Up with Pups Dog Training has just expanded our training options to include online classes, zoom coaching sessions, and now has an extensive video vault of dog training tutorials that we provide our in-person and virtual clients to ensure that you remember what we did in our in-person or online sessions.  That’s right – you’ll have access to your own custom video library of tutorials that you can access at your convenience to refresh your memory and share with your family as you hone your skills and strengthen your bond with your dog through training.

Our Walk and Train sessions are designed to provide exercise, mental stimulation, fun, and basic obedience skills for your best canine buddy. We cover essential “good dog” lessons including Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Leave-it, Out (drop it), and loose leash walking skills. We also focus on teaching your dog to behave politely around family and friends by discouraging jumping and encouraging calm household behavior. Dogs learn best through repetition and positive reinforcement. Our weekly programs build reliable skills because we visit your home multiple times each week to reinforce lessons and work on new commands as your dog progresses. Best of all, we take care of the daily training routine for you and give you progress updates at each session.  In addition, we arrange training updates via zoom or in-person to facilitate your dog training skills
