The Always Faithful Difference - Leadership.  Training.  Experience.

No Treats, No Clickers, No Shock Collars, No Gimmicks®

Over 30,000 dogs trained by our certified trainers!

The Always Faithful Dog Training method is designed to teach you the language of your dog. We call it Leadership Dog Training.

Dogs are pack animals. As part of your pack, you want your dog to follow you. Our leadership-based techniques will enable you to be the pack leader.

Common dog behaviors like leash pulling, jumping, barking, digging, and generally not listening are signs that your dog wants to lead you. Our private in-home lessons will immediately correct these behaviors and give you the tools to maintain your leadership.

How will you be trained?

Our Franchise Training and Development Team has been assembled for one reason only.  To train and create the absolute best dog trainers in the United States!  When you buy an Always Faithful Dog Training Franchise you will be trained by this team. 

All franchises sold to honorably discharged veterans receive 10% off the franchise fee! (This cannot be combined with any other offer.)

When you join our team, you will be trained by our founder and his team of dog trainers.  Upon completion of training you will not only be an IDTA certified dog trainer, but also have your very own dog training business that is backed by the reputation and experience of a United States Marine!

The Pet Industry

The pet industry generated over 99 billion dollars in the United States last year!  There are more than 78 million dogs in the United States!  Almost all of these dogs need training.  House breaking, obedience, behavior modification or even things like therapy or service dog training. The majority of dog owners want the training to take place in the comfort of their homes.

"I’ve been a franchise owner for just over a year and it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The freedom of being my own boss allows, the satisfaction of going to work everyday and the MONEY I’ve made make being an Always Faithful Dog Training franchisee exceed all my expectations. I am now in a position where the old saying of doing what you love means you’ll never work another day in your life. Purchasing a franchise and starting my own business was scary at first but the support and training I received from Abraham and all the staff at Always Faithful Dog Training put me at ease right away. Any time I have a question, concern or situation I am not sure of, I can always rely on Abraham to talk me through it. His experience and calm demeanor is so reassuring that I feel confident going into any situation knowing I will have the solution to help my customers. If you love the idea of working with dogs, helping people and being your own boss, I can’t think of a better opportunity than joining the Always Faithful Dog Training family." Jim , Northwest, IL
“Purchasing an Always Faithful Dog Training franchise has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. After years of military and corporate service we knew that when we found the Always Faithful Dog Training franchise opportunity, that this was something that we truly wanted to sink our teeth into. From the onset Abraham and the rest of the team at Always Faithful Dog Training have been top notch, extremely supportive, encouraging, and always continuing to better the business and help the franchisees reach their optimum potential and growth. Every day in this business is a new learning experience and a chance to grow yourself as an individual and a business owner. There are a multitude of intellectually and physically stimulating situations on a daily basis. There is never a dull moment in our business as we continue to strive to be amazing trainers and dog handlers. It is an extremely rewarding business as we get to effect change in people's lives and in the lives of their dogs every day! Our business has grown to the point that we have added additional trainers to our staff. We are continually growing and expanding our business. Abraham and the team have been there every step of the way assisting and guiding us to each new level of our business. We feel confident in our training and our business, as Abraham and his team have our best interests in mind always. At the end of the day, we are all a part of one big team...Always Faithful Dog Training!” D'arcy and Mike , Dupage County, IL
“When my wife and I decided to purchase a franchise from Abraham, I was very apprehensive. I was basically starting all over late in life with something completely new. Yes, I've had dogs and thought I knew how to train them, but it was the owning my own business that was intimidating. I don't have prior education in business, mine is in wildlife and natural resources. My wife encouraged me, and encouraged me, until I finally agreed as I'm not a person that just jumps into things without thinking them through; I'm pretty skeptical. Buying a franchise was something to be taken seriously and I couldn't just throw away the funds needed to start this. It's how you prepare for those that keeps you going. Abraham has always been quick to improve my business. I believe Abraham shows how much the success of your business is also the success of his business in his actions. Abraham has not only been supportive on the business end of things, he supports me when I have behavior issues with a certain dog. There are times when the normal training techniques don't seem to get through to a dog, or there are issues I haven't seen before. When I have those I can rely on Abraham to confirm what I was thinking and give me other solutions to solve the issue. Abraham has supported me clearly and concisely in all aspects of this franchise and it has been a blessing.” Terry , Corpus Christie, TX
