I’ve been a dog owner for almost my whole life. I have two dogs right now and I have trained them. I would love to meet new dog friends and walk them for people who aren’t able to. All dogs need exercise and mental stimulation and I want to help give them that.

About Dog Training in Apache Junction, AZ

Training Fun Fact #1:

Which dog breed can dig the deepest? Well, many dogs have talent! The Dachshund is one such dog and it’s their short and quick legs that won them the prize. These little dynamos used to hunt vermin. The term “go to ground” meant they were expected to dive into tunnels and dens to flush out prey. This pooch prefers the life of leisure now and would much rather dig in the garden.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Three breeds of canine make up the designer pooch called the Daisy Dog. Their parentage includes the Poodle, ShihTzu, and Bichon Frise. With such a spunky lineup, dog training is an absolute must. This affectionate dog loves to be the center of attention. Let them know they are top dog and they’ll work hard to learn every lesson you teach.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Not every doggo has the desire to lick faces. If you love slobbery kisses and want to teach your pooch the task, try the peanut butter method. This technique works well, but it is crucial for your pupster’s safety that you purchase only dog-safe peanut butter for training. Make sure the brand you buy is peanuts-only. The ingredient xylitol is highly toxic to dogs, so be extremely careful and check the product label before purchasing.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Apache Junction, AZ

Are you excited to learn about dog training in Apache Junction? How much you will have to pay to teach your dog the rules of “pawfect” behavior will depend on their presentation skills. On average, a group class lasting 4 to 6 weeks costs between $100 and $175 and will require a one-hour in-class commitment per week. Training at home is part of the package, too.

In-home private classes in Apache Junction can be as high as $150 per hour. You are paying for individual instruction, and dogs that thrive with one on one attention will focus and learn well. Budget for a consultation fee, and travel expenses for the trainer if they need to drive any distance.

Do you have a hectic schedule that may not fit into a weekly commitment? Are you worried that the cost of private training at $150 an hour is just out of your budget?

This is where Wag! can help. Private in-home training at a time that suits you is very affordable at just $60 per one-hour session. Dog training is easily booked on the Wag! app. Download the app, connect and chat with a dog trainer

Going Off-Leash in Apache Junction, AZ

Is Fido ready to kick up some dirt at local dog parks? Check out the turf at Tempe Sports Complex Dog Park. It’s the perfect mix between grass and gravel, and also has a water source. This keeps playful pooches hydrated under the hot Arizona sun. The enclosure here is for dogs of all sizes and temperaments. If your doggo is shy, go early in the day when this popular park is quiet.

Take your amicable companion for an off-leash excursion to Mitchell Dog Park - Tempe. You are in the neighborhood, so why not investigate? It’s a secure park with plenty of room for fun and games. It does get dry and dusty on a hot day, but in the summer there are plastic pools full of water for pups to play in. Pack a few towels in the car—your pupster may be a bit muddy heading home!

Remember to get your dog licensed and vaccinated for rabies. Then, you are ready to see the sights of Apache Junction. Outings with your pup will be a blast once they can show off their social graces and are trained to come when called. Make it happen with the help of an enthusiastic Apache Junction dog trainer who puts your dog’s best interests at the forefront.

Dog Training in Apache Junction, AZ

Apache dog trainers on the Wag! platform work with dogs of all sizes and breeds. Dogs may look and act differently, but they all need love, affection, and dog training! Canines are happier when they have leadership and a place in the family pack.

Much-adored dogs in Apache Junction include a micro-mutt lovingly nicknamed the Chi. The Chihuahua is small but mighty and has a personality that belies its size. This little firecracker does best when socialized often with other animals, dogs, and humans. Take your Chi on lots of outings to allow them to expand their horizons.

The German Shepherd and American Pit Bull Terrier are best buddies who often frolic at the local park. They are both big and athletic dogs who can pull you wherever they want if they are not trained to walk well on a leash. This is an essential part of their training—these dogs don’t know their own strength!

The Shih Tzu is a treasured member of Apache Junction society and is a diva at heart. They are pros at letting their fur down and don’t mind showing off with funny antics. The Shih Tzu is known to have a stubborn streak mixed in with all that cuteness. Be firm when training but remember to throw lots of kindness in there, too.
