Bringing Out The Best
In Your Best Friend

Home: Welcome

Welcome to Core Canine

Please see the COVID page for updates.

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, age, 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. 

“The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.”

Konrad Lorenz
