About Us

You might not realize why your dog is misbehaving. (And that’s ok. Most people don't.)

We help figure out what’s going on with your dog, and how to best solve the problem.

We are experts at getting to the bottom of why your dog is behaving the way he or she is – and we help owners discover the positive steps to take to change a dog's behavior.

Dog’s Best Friend Training was founded in 1988 Patricia McConnell, Ph.D., an internationally known and respected expert in animal behavior. We are now owned by Aimee Moore Jarosz, Patricia's training program director for many years and our guide and visionary who continues Patricia’s legacy and overall philosophy for training dogs.

Aimee carefully handpicks each of our dog training and care experts to ensure each has both a heart full of love for animals as well  smarts for working with dogs. Each member of our staff is a true professional who combines a love of animals with scientific knowledge and extensive training in the field.

We are one of the few programs in the country to combine ethology and psychology in the development of humane and effective treatment plans for dog training and dog behavior problems. What does this mean? We are dedicated to helping owners in the greater Madison area – and throughout the country - find safe, humane and state-of-the-art ways to solve dog behavior problems.

We have evolved over the years and extended our offerings to clients based on their needs. We provide a full range of classes that range from puppy and family dog training to specific behavioral training and dog agility classes, as well as dog walking and pet sitting services. As our clients have new needs, we will continue to expand and refine our offerings.

We are the trusted, true pet professionals. Contact us today at 608-277-1339 or send us an email.
