Private In-Home Training

Private in-home training sessions give us the space to work one-on-one with you and your dog. By using behavioral science and applied behavioral analysis, we can help you understand your dog’s unique bonding style, behaviors, and problem areas. Private sessions allow us to:

  • Design a unique training protocol around your goals, so that you and your dog are happier

  • Use practical, humane methods to train your dog in the place they’re most likely to act out — your home

  • Schedule each session at your convenience and go at your own pace

  • Answer all your questions and address any additional concerns

Group Classes 

Group training classes are a fantastic environment to workshop obedience skills and learn how to interact with other dogs. All group classes take place at our partner facility called Wag Club in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Classes include Puppy Socialization, Basic Obedience & Manners, Intermediate Obedience, Introduction to Agility, Tricks, and Introduction to Scent Work.

 

Basic Obedience Class

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 her P's and Q's.

In this 6-week course we will teach you practical, humane, and scientifically sound techniques to promote healthy leadership and a lifelong bond of understanding and respect. Learn basic manners such as LOOK AT ME, SIT, DOWN, STAY, DROP IT, LEAVE IT, FOCUSED LEASH WALKING, COME WHEN CALLED, and more!

Puppy + Wine Social Hour

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. Puppy + Wine is the perfect opportunity for pups to practice their skills.  They will learn how to elicit and end play, how to use their mouths, and how to safely get along with other members of their own species.

Under the supervision of a trained professional, humans can ask puppy questions and learn about their own dog’s play style and personality. This fun and educational experience is enhanced with a FREE glass of wine from the good 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 with Wag Club and provide your vaccination records.
