Who We Are


Here at Playful Pandemonium, we're dedicated to providing reliable, cruelty-free pet training services in McLean, Virginia.


The methods we use promote animal wellness and safety, and strong, trusting bonds between caregiver and pet. We will equip you with modern day tools and approaches to raising a well-behaved companion. Most importantly, we'll show you how to achieve the results you want without resorting to harmful and outdated tactics!


Whether you want to learn how to tackle basic training with ease or need guidance to work systematically through more advanced issues such as reactivity and resource guarding, we're here to help. 


Our Philosophy


"We want our dogs to follow us because they want to, not because they're scared of what will happen if they don't."


Even the most challenging of behaviors can be managed with the proper approach. We use and promote only humane training to achieve our results. 


Choke, prong, and shock collars and forceful approaches like "alpha rolling" may provide temporary results, but at devastating costs to you and your pet. We want to show you that there are safe and fun ways to have a well-behaved pet in a human world. Training should be an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
