Columbia Basin Dog Training Club - Richland, WA and Surrounding Area


Companion dog usually describes a dog that does not work in the traditional sense, and provides companionship as a pet, rather than training for specific tasks.

Any dog can be a companion dog, and many working types such as retrievers are enjoyed primarily for their friendly nature as a family pet, as are mixed breed dogs.

There are still plenty of opportunities to work with your dog, teaching him or her to be a terrific, well-behaved pet.

S.T.A.R. Puppy, Home Companion, and Canine Good Citizen classes are also recommended before starting any other sport training.
