Looking for one-on-one attention? We’ve got you.
Your dog is a square peg in a round hole. All your friends’ dogs are going to dog parties and dog parks, love to be petted by strangers, manage to chill when they aren’t home. Not your dog. Your dog struggles with fear, anxiety, reactivity, or aggression. You’ve tried other trainers. Maybe you’ve even asked your vet and started medication to no avail. A Pleasant Dog can help.
We offer a group classes for dogs of all ages + comfort levels led by our trainers.
This is a Pleasant version of a board-and-train for puppies and dogs in a daily drop off format. If you would like to bring your dog into our school for training and playtime for the day, we'll set up a private consultation to get you started, evaluate your dog and see your training goals.
At A Pleasant Dog, we strive to make learning with your dog fun and easy through a wide variety of training offerings. We offer everything from one on one private training sessions, to group classes, to stay and train offerings, and everything in between. Click any of the below options to learn more.
Expecting? Make sure your furry family member knows what to expect. We LOOOOOVE to come to your home and help you and your pup(s) prepare for baby’s arrival. $125 gets you an hour with Jenn, a feeling of preparedness, and a cute little Pleasant onesie.
For a flat rate, our professional trainers will handle your dog throughout the day and evening of your big event. Service includes two meet and greets with Fido before the big day, travel to and from the event (for the handler and for Fido when necessary), exercise, and photo posing.
We are pleased to offer evaluation of dogs, staff and volunteer training, screening of potential adopters or foster homes, and other services on a pro bono basis to shelters and rescues within the greater Grand Rapids area.
If you're overwhelmed and have tried everything, know that you are not alone. Forgive yourself for trying anything one can to help a beloved dog and instead try our gentle, science-based approach. Our dogs teach us skill, empathy, gratitude, and excellence — and at A Pleasant Dog, we're proud to share these lessons with you.
