Your dog is your best friend. The OHS Salem Campus Behavior and Training Program is here to teach the skills and build confidence to help your pooch be the best dog he or she can be.

Our team of canine training professionals believe in humane, safe, and effective training methods that make learning fun for both ends of the leash—whether you are bringing home a new puppy or helping your family dog learn some new tricks.
