Happy dogs mean happy owners!

– Give your pet some training –


Dog training is important to maintaining a healthy relationship between you and your pet. Just like humans, dogs need mental stimulation to stay happy and well-behaved. At LaBest Pet Resort, we believe in positive reinforcement and can help your dog overcome a variety of unwanted behaviors. Call us for Dog Training in Edwardsville.  We’re convenient to Alton, Maryville, Glen Carbon and the surrounding area.

Debbie and Hannah came to our house on March 16, 2017. They were so helpful with our dog Roscoe! We practice the behavior lessons every day; we are not perfect but we are doing better. I look forward to taking Roscoe to LaBest for more instruction. I definitely would recommend to anyone for them to go to LaBest Pet Resort! – Helen S
