How we can help YOU with your dog...

Dog training comes in all shapes and forms just like people and dogs.  We have a training solution that fits every need and budget.

No matter if you prefer to be more hands on with your dog while working closely with a dog trainer or have a busy schedule and would prefer us to do the hardest work for you, we can find a program to fit your preferences. 

The first step is always to have a real conversation with us so we can get to know more about your dog and help you decide the best path to take.

Group Training Classes

Our classes go beyond the usual learning to sit, down, stay and come when called by showing you have to use those skills as part of your every day, busy life.

Certified Dog Trainers. Positive Training. Real Results.​

Over the last 13+ years, we have trained thousands of dogs from 8 weeks old to 8+ years throughout Bucks County and the nearby areas.

Our extensive background in rescue means that as dog trainers, we have seen and heard it all (really, we have!).  It is because of this background that we are dedicated to bringing the best positive dog training possible to the families in our area to help them have a peaceful, stress free life with their dog.

We have successfully trained with dogs of all breeds and temperaments in our board and trainin home dog training and group class programs. 

We want you to have the best dog training experience possible and so we’ve created the most supportive dog training program in the state. As busy parents ourselves, we know and understand the balancing act of modern life and built our training programs around that understanding.

Our lifetime support is unmatched and while you probably won’t need it, it’s nice to know that help is always available.  Our clients love that they become part of our community and that we treat their dog like family.

We make improving your dog's listening & behavior easy.

Our board and train program near Doylestown, PA is the state’s only home based dog training camp where your dog learns in a home environment around the same distractions they experience at home such as other dogs, cats, kids and their messes. 

Since 2012, we’ve welcomed over 400 dogs into our home to show them how to live as a calm and well-behaved member of the family.  

The first step to a brag-worthy dog is a phone call...

By scheduling a phone consult, we can be sure to give you our undivided attention. 

During the call, we will want to learn more about you, your dog and discuss the behavior that lead you to seek professional dog training help.  This helps us to make a personalized recommendation on the best way to get help that fits your needs and preferences.

"We adopted a high energy dog with no respect for boundaries, personal space and very poor leash skills. After a few training sessions with BPF we have noticed such a great improvement in our dog's behavior! Would absolutely recommend them to anyone who wishes for a dog with better manners!"
