My name is Kiefer, I'm an enthusiastic animal-lover living and working in San Francisco. I grew up with a pit bull/Great Dane mutt named Bandit and a couple of cats. After Bandit, we adopted a border collie/black lab mix and a greyhound/black lab mix from our local animal shelter. When I moved away for college, I filled my dog void by spending ~10 hr/week at the Humane Society as a senior volunteer; I was responsible for cleaning, feeding, basic agility and training, and off-site socialization and exercise. I've had a great love for dogs since I was a child and miss having them as a constant in my life. I aim to provide your dog with all of my affection and attention!

I am keenly aware of canine communication signals and positive guidance methods in order to further mutual cooperation with the client.

About Dog Training in Belmont, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

It’s a myth that small dogs are all big barkers. In fact, little dogs really do not bark any more often than large pooches do. Their bark isn’t any louder either, although it may be more high-pitched. Do you have a dog, whether giant or tiny, that likes to be overly vocal? The Quiet Method works in that your pupster learns what you are asking of them and obeys your request.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Some say small dogs rule because they cost less. This may be the case when it comes to food, toys, and equipment, but medical expenses are often just as much for small woofers as they are for big. In fact, mini canines can have teeth problems that turn into expensive vet bills. Little doggos have tiny mouths and crowded teeth. It’s extra important to train them to sit still for teeth brushing to avoid decay.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Do you like to hike? Dogs that are known for endurance may make the best companion in that case. The Golden Retriever and Labrador Retrievers are known for their determination and will to go as far as you need. The Husky, of course, if famous for endurance runs like the Iditarod. Then, there are the Weimaraner and the Vizsla to consider. No matter which breed you decide to train with, slowly building up strength and stamina is key to preventing injury in your running or hiking partner.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Belmont, CA

What is the average price for dog training in Belmont? Group classes are a popular choice for pooches who have the doggo socialization underway and can benefit from more. It’s fun for a dog to train alongside other dogs, competing for top of the class. Expect to pay around $150 for a puppy or basic obedience course, typically lasting 4 to 6 weeks.

Board and train lessons will be more expensive as your dog is sent off to a boot camp of sorts to be instructed at the dog trainer’s home. A 3-week session can cost around $2100. Private lessons in your home range between $75 and $160 an hour in Belmont. The price varies due to the extent of the class and whether the trainer comes to your home, or you take Fido to the training facility.

Of course, you only want the best for your special pooch, and this means putting some thought into your decision. Consider your four-legger’s personality and go from there. Shy dogs or pups still on the young side benefit from customized classes suited to their needs. And the best part is, you can learn along with your pooch.

For $60 per hour-long session, you can rely on Wag! for excellent in-home instruction, tailored to your dog’s requirements. Does your furry buddy need help walking on a leash properly? Belmont dog trainers are ready to show Fido how it’s done.

Going Off-Leash in Belmont, CA

Belmont is the ideal city for enjoying parks and trails. It’s a picturesque town and a great place to be a dog owner. No doubt, you and your pooch make it a regular thing to take a trek and marvel at the wonders of nature. Does your pooch know how to be friendly when out and about in Belmont? It’s essential in this doggy paradise!

Before hitting the off-leash dog parks, make sure you know the rules of dog ownership. Requirements are leashes and dog licenses for all pups. Rabies vaccines are a must, and it’s expected that you’ll pick up after your furry buddy, ensuring that all parks stay pristine.

Head to nearby Menlo Park, and let your pupster play at Willow Oaks Dog Park. It’s popular with the pooches and is grass covered with a fully fenced enclosure. It’s not a huge park, and because of this, you’ll want your pup to practice manners learned in dog training. Make sure they don’t play aggressively. Remember, pick up after your dog, too. This means having a supply of poop bags with you wherever you go.

On a sunny day, of which there are many in gorgeous Belmont, head to a shady trail. McNee Ranch State Park is a fun destination. This expansive park covers 625 acres and has stunning views of San Francisco Bay. Choose from 4 trails and enjoy this moderately tricky trek!

Dog Training in Belmont, CA

Doggos who love the ocean think that Belmont, with its proximity to the Pacific Coast, is the best place to be. Frolicking in the surf is the perfect pooch pastime, after all! Hanging out at the beach is the best way for dogs to learn how to swim and develop a liking for the water.

Other dogs are seen doing the doggy paddle in Belmont, and they range from big to small. The Goldendoodle and the Golden Retriever are two water-loving dogs that top the list in this outdoorsy town. Take either one of these Golden beauties to the shore, and you may have a hard time getting them to leave!

The Chihuahua, another fan favorite in Belmont, has a spunky personality but may prefer the backyard pool to the ocean. They do like to be busy and are always keen to go on an adventure. They love city life just as much as a mini-promenade through the forest and ask that you take them out for a few walks each day.

The mixed breed is another popular Belmont pooch. They are pros at being friendly and loyal, making them one of the best kinds of dogs out there. Always ready to accomplish any task, the mixed doggo will be happy to train to be the best-behaved woofer in town.

Is your dog ready to start? Help them put their best paw forward with a local dog trainer with Wag! and book your first session today!
