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.

We are passionate about our work and our community:

  • We proudly support the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and many local schools.
  • We partner with the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation by fostering pregnant dogs and whelping and raising the puppies until they are ready to be adopted.


WOOFS! has 14 trainers and nearly a dozen apprentices and agility assistants.  And we need them all!  We offer 30 classes a week from early puppy socialization, adult manners classes, and competition Agility and Rally Obedience.


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:
