From owner,

Anna Foster

When I opened Peace Love Dogs in June 2011, my vision was to have the very best training facility in the Houston area.

Twelve years later, we have grown into an award-winning, training-first resort, where our focus remains on helping our clients improve the bond with their dogs. Along the way, we added luxury lodging and training-based daycare for our Alumni and offer master-level grooming services to everyone.

For me, it’s about improving and enriching the lives of dogs and their owners. Our commitment to integrity and love extends beyond the dogs. We don’t just train, we build relationships.

We welcome you and your dog to our PLD family!

We prioritize safety with multiple safeguards around our facility, including 6-8' fencing, a series of secure gates, fully enclosed and temperature controlled dorms, suites, training rooms and more. Our state-of-the-art wet-vac system keeps the facility, floors, dorms, and suites clean and disinfected.

are Saying


Crystal and Kay are the best! They have worked so well with Hagrid and we have seen so much improvement.


PLD is an exceptional training facility . My dog, Dixie has learned some really good behavior!


We have found the PLD team to be friendly and accommodating to the unique needs of our puppy, Winnie. Their facilities are impressive, and the best we have personally seen in Houston.

Winnie made significant progress during her training with Ivan. We could not be happier. We strongly recommend PLD for anyone looking for training or lodging for their dog. We were so happy with our first training program that we decided to book another one.


I couldn’t be more happy and impressed with the entire experience from my initial inquiry with Reception to the weekly lessons with Greg and our dog Knox. Everyone is extremely professional, responsive to all communications and every trainer/handler that I met genuinely cares.


We signed her up for prep training and we are now seeing the fruits of her work. The love, patience, skills, and professionalism of her dog trainers at PLD has been something to behold. The front desk team is friendly and welcoming. The training sessions are informative and helpful. My husband and I feel like we are gaining invaluable skills to help our dogs become the best ever. The facility is clean and bright. We are grateful we found PLD and cannot recommend them enough.
