In-Home Sessions

Private dog training sessions are an opportunity for you and your dog to learn together at the same time. If you're willing to put in the work and have the time, then our private sessions may be right for you.

Board and Train

Our board and train programs are incredible for achieving outstanding obedience (on leash and off-leash), behavior modification, and solid results with your dog in a short period of a few weeks.


Sam is a very effective and knowledgeable trainer who worked with us to create a personalized training session each week. We noticed an immediate difference in both dogs’ behavior right after the first session. We were able to reinforce the lessons learned during class and with consistency, we have well-mannered dogs as a result. If you’re experiencing similar issues with your dog, Canine Behavior Solutions is the answer for you.

Sam, I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for Tanner and I (more me!!). You have restored my confidence. Thanks again!

Sam's calm and assertive manner seemed to please Tank and was something I needed to learn to get him to do what I wanted. He customized the sessions to my dog’s personality/behavior and my expectations. I appreciate Sam’s flexibility, patience, and availability whenever I needed him. In addition, he is always willing to analyze and discuss problems that I may be experiencing while training my dog. As a result, I now have a much happier and obedient dog. I look forward to working with Sam in the future and have recommended him to others.

Sam helped us with our 15-month old German Shepherd, Jet. We had trouble walking him around the neighborhood and he was getting harder to control. He used to jump on table surfaces and on us when we arrive home. Now, Jet is cooperative, calmer, and more behaved. Thank you so much, Sam!!!

Sam knows what he's doing. He is my fourth trainer and we're finally getting results. If you have behavioral problems with your dog, this is the place to go. As long as you implement the foundation Sam creates and stay consistent with it, you'll be able to take your dog out in public in no time!

I recommend Canine Behavior Solutions to anyone who has a dog that needs help with aggressive behavior, anxiety or just simply needs to learn how to be a dog again!

I hired Sam Tabar to teach me how to walk my two 75 lb. dogs on a leash without pulling my arms off. I have severe arthritis and I couldn't walk them. We have our own Dog Whisper here in Austin!! In 3.5 hrs he taught them not only to walk by my side, he also taught them to not rush to the door when someone comes to the door and rings the bell. All I can say is that the moment he came into the house, a calmness came over us all. He was absolutely marvelous!

- Susan S.

Sam is wonderful, knowledgeable and VERY patient with my dog and me. In just 3 weeks, there has been a significant improvement. Bailey is still a work in progress, but at least she's responding well to the structure Sam has helped me to implement. I'm extremely optimistic about the future. Thanks, Sam!

"Our dog, Pete, was in a shelter for 3 years before we adopted him. I was told to never let him around other dogs due to his aggression. Sam is awesome, he has done wonders with Pete. Can't say enough about this talented trainer and what he has done for us and our dog. I'm so thankful."
