Basic Obedience

It’s nearly impossible for the typical urban canine to avoid distractions walking the streets of New York City. That’s why it’s especially important that your dog has street smarts and learns to mind his Ps and Qs. In this 6-week course I will teach you practical, humane and scientifically sound techniques to promote healthy leadership and a lifelong bond of understanding and respect. Learn basic commands such as LOOK AT ME, SIT, DOWN, STAY, LEAVE IT, HEEL and COME.

Puppy + Wine

This wildly popular class is perhaps the most important you will take. Puppies go through a stage of social development that ends between 12 – 16 weeks. During this time, it is critical to expose them to as many social situations as possible. This is an opportunity for pups to learn how to elicit and end play, how hard to use their mouths, and basically how to get along with other members of their own species safely.  Under the supervision of a trained professional, humans can ask puppy questions and learn about their own dogs play style and personality.  This fun and educational experience is enhanced with a free glass of wine from the folks at Waterfront Wines. Sampled wines are also available for purchase at a discount. Due to the popularity of this class, we must limit the number of pups to 10 per class. You will need to register ahead of time through Wag Club and provide your vaccination records. Contact Wag Club

As a first time dog owner, and not just one doggie but two, Robert was a real life-saver and counselor. I hired him to train the puppies, and not only did he accomplish that, but more importantly he trained me!!
