Tried & True Methods

Our philosophy for dog training is simple: build a foundation while having fun with your dog! We use only humane and proven methods, and we’ve trained over two-thousand dogs in the Greater St. Louis area. Not all dogs respond to the same methods of training, so we don’t rely on one method alone. Instead, we combine elements of multiple techniques, adapting our approach to each dog. Our techniques incorporate all facets of learning theory, the most important being positive reinforcement. We teach using motivational and reward-based methods. Most importantly, we believe if you teach dogs desired behaviors, they’ll respond to verbal cues & correct behaviors on their own

Our system is meant to meet three major goals:

  • Teach your dog to respond to verbal commands using a positive approach

  • Teach you how to maintain your dog’s good behaviors and even improve them in time

  • Ensure your dog retains his new knowledge long after class ends through ongoing support

How it Works

Getting Started

We start with a face-to-face complimentary evaluation to meet you & your dog, discuss your challenges, and outline your training goals. To get started, complete a training evaluation form. Once we receive the form, a trainer will contact you.

Our goal is to help you achieve your goals while making it fun & educational for the owner as well as the dog. The more you & your dog enjoy the process, the better the results will be! Our promise to all of our training clients is to work with you until you’re satisfied with your dog’s progress. Plus, our training programs include access to our online resource center full of videos, course outlines, helpful tips, and FAQs.

Options for All Needs

All of our programs are designed with your success in mind. Our Day Training program includes weekly take-home lessons and group classes. All our training programs are all built on the same positive, results-driven techniques. Prices start at $849 for our Day Train program and space is extremely limited.

Experienced Dog Trainers

When you train at No Leash Needed, a dog trainer with experience will be working with your dog, not a student.​​ We employ a small number of highly qualified trainers. They come from a variety of backgrounds and are skilled in understanding dog behavior and multiple methods of training. They have completed a formal training program and/or have significant experience working with dogs and people. In addition, our trainers are then put through an intensive internal training program before being able to work with clients.

Our focus is to train happy, obedient dogs, and exceed your expectations. We are selective about our trainers and you should be as well. We limit the number of dogs we take into our training programs to ensure that your dog gets the time and attention you pay for. We track your dog’s progress from day one and give you a variety of options to continue training.

Dog Training Reviews & Testimonials

Hear why our clients are loving Training at No Leash Needed!

Our 3 year old dog Paulie had become difficult to control on walks, in the house with company, and at the dog park. He also became very anxious if he had to separate from my husband or myself. He just completed 4 weeks of training at No Leash Needed. It was a huge success. He is much happier with us in control and now that he is able to go places again.

Affordable pricing and friendly staff are the cherry on top. I Highly recommend No Leash Needed to all my friends, neighbors, and coworkers.
