Welcome to Core Canine!

UPDATE 11/1/20: I have hired a trainer to join my team, Olivia Jacquemin. She is wonderful and brings a lot to Core Canine. She will be holding group classes and doing in-person training, both in-home and at Core Canine's facility. I will continue to offer virtual training through Zoom, by request only, for those who aren't comfortable with in-person training. Details can be found on the Services/Pricing tab. Online booking still offered through the Scheduling tab. I appreciate your support while we're all trying to navigate this difficult time. Stay well! 

At Core Canine, we specialize in positive reinforcement training as provided by our Certified Dog Trainers, April and Olivia, whose commitment is to bring you and your dog together in a positive way.


Core Canine’s goal is to teach owners and their dogs how to live harmoniously together using science-based, force-free methods. 


Core Canine works with all dogs, regardless of breed or size, and helps families - both small and large. If you have kids, we’d love to have them be a part of the training process. Bringing dogs closer to their families is what makes us happy. 

We offer private in-home classes in the following Northern Virginia locations: Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, Burke, Falls Church, Ft. Belvoir, Springfield. If you live outside of our service area, you are welcome to come to us at our training facility for a private session.  

Group training classes are held at our location, 3301 Mt. Vernon Ave, Ste 100, Alexandria, VA 22305.
