Taking People and Dogs to New Heights

With a focus on personal and companion animal development, we work with you to establish the most positive and deep-rooted bond possible with your dog. Our belief is that it takes a balanced approach to create the optimal relationship between your family’s two- and four-legged members. No two situations are exactly alike and neither are any two dogs, so Altitude Dog Training is built on solid training and relational principles that are flexible enough to meet your needs based on individual dog and family dynamics.

“Dear Brian – I want to thank you so much much for your compassion and understanding of animals!
I knew when I saw your website, you were the one I needed and had been looking for to help me with my German Shepherd. You could see what I saw in her!
Your training methods are gentle and kind to the animal but most important I can live with myself and not be completely stressed out over disciplining my dog. I had used other trainers but they lacked compassion for my “family member”, which was hard for me to understand and accept. Patience and gentleness to all living creatures, keep it alive, it’s a great way to live!”
– Sherry S., Lakewood, CO

Brian Bergford

For your convenience, Altitude Dog Training has a variety of training options in both group and private settings. Our programs are designed to save you time, money, energy, and frustration by equipping you with the information and knowledge you need to live in peace with your dog and accomplish your training goals. Do you want a dog that listens to you? Do you want a dog that understands what behavior is expected and is happy to do it for you? Do you want a dog that walks nicely on a leash? Do you want a dog that is well-socialized and well-behaved at home and in public? Do you want to increase the quality of your communication and understand “dog language” better? We can help you get there!

Everyone desires a deep bond with their canine companion. Brian believes that the foundation of a healthy relationship with your dog is rooted in having personal balance and providing your dog with appropriate natural outlets to ensure physical and mental stability. This helps create a happy, fulfilled dog that is easy to love and live with! Happy and stable dogs are also much more eager to please; they learn new skills faster and are more predictable in their behavior. Let Altitude Dog Training help you develop this special kind of bond and enjoy all the benefits of a balanced life with a well-behaved and well-trained dog!

Below is a list of offerings from Altitude Dog Training. Please note that we are happy to develop customized plans that are tailored to your needs even if they aren’t specifically covered in the services listed below. Please call us today to discuss your training needs! The initial phone consultation is free of charge and allows us to make recommendations to ensure your training gets off on the right foot (and paw).

Board and Train

Board and Train

Our Board and Train option is one of the most popular for good reason: most people don’t have the extra time it takes to dedicate to advanced training, but they still want a well-mannered and well-educated dog both on and off-leash. That’s where a Board and Train program is ideal. Brian personally trains and works with your dog to establish advanced obedience criteria so that your dog not only listens to you in the house, but out in the real world where it counts…
