Building a Good Relationship with Your Dog 

Everyone loves their dogs, but sometimes their behavior can irritate the owner and cause a fractured relationship. If this relationship is not repaired, it could lead to the owner deciding to get rid of the dog. Here at Building Bloch Dog Training LLC of Arlington, VA, we feel there is a better way.

One of the best ways to avoid someone deciding to give up their dog, which could result in them residing in a shelter or having to be put down, is to provide training for the pet.

When the time comes to train your dog, you need to turn to someone who has a proven track record of success. Our experience and skills have helped to train countless numbers of dogs, and repair the relationships of dog and owner.

About Us

Our owner, Maria Bloch, has experience with dog training dating back to 1980, before she was a dog trainer herself.

She hired a trainer for her beloved pet, Samoyed, and soon discovered that once the communication was open between the pair, they both were less frustrated. The bond that was built was so strong, eventually they only needed to use hand signals to communicate.

Years later, Maria adopted another dog and applied what she had learned with her previous pooch. The results were fantastic. After adopting yet another pet, and implementing the same system, she soon realized that she loved working and building on communication with animals.

This led to her volunteering in shelters and learning more about training. In 2012, she decided to become a certified trainer. Through this, Maria has learned that positive reinforcement and consistency is essential to building a strong, trusting relationship.

Soon her hobby became her career, and after a 20-year career, Maria opened our company in 2013.

We are Certified, bonded and insured. We are also a member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
