About WOOFS! Dog Training Center

WOOFS! Dog Training Center is a full-service training, boarding, and daycare facility with two locations in Arlington, VA. We have a large and well-educated staff that, for the past decade, have helped hundreds of dog owners raise and train happy, well-mannered dogs.


WOOFS! has a dozen trainers and nearly as many apprentices and agility assistants.  And we need them all!  We offer 40 classes a week including early puppy socialization, adult manners classes, and competition Agility and Rally Obedience.


We are passionate about our work and our community. One example: we foster pregnant mother dogs and whelp, raise and socialize the pups until they are old enough to be adopted. We have fostered more than 200 dogs and puppies at WOOFS! Dog Training Center.


It takes a large team of dedicated people to provide the exceptional level of service that we demand. Learn more about how to get involved with our training or daycare services:
