Hello pet owners, My name is Victoria and I am a qualified veterinary surgeon with an animal behavior degree. I have experience in both general practice and emergency veterinary medicine. I know it may seem as though I am little overqualified to be a dog walker...however I have decided to take a sabbatical from work over the summer, but just cannot resist being around your fur babies 24/7! They will certainly be in safe hand! I look forward to hearing from you and looking after your fur babies.

About Dog Training in Concord, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Bringing a dog of any age into your home is a daunting task. Not just for you, but also for the dog. Mini mutts and senior canines alike can find adjusting to new surroundings both exciting and scary. When timidity is at the forefront, comforting your new furry addition and making them feel safe is vital. Take it slow and keep things calm. A gradual intro to their new home is the best plan.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Is your pupster always tripping over their water dish, causing the bowl to be empty instead of topped up with water? Some curious canines like to play in the water bowl and even drop toys in to see if they’ll float. Wondering whether they are getting enough water is many a pooch parent’s concern. To solve this dilemma, teach your dog to drink from a water dispenser.

Training Fun Fact #3:

What do you get when you combine the hyper-energetic Border Collie with the ever-focused Labrador Retriever? The amiable and eager to please Borador is the result. This dog will keep you on your toes and get you fit in no time. How to keep them content and out of trouble? They are going to want a job that they can count on every day, like bringing in the newspaper. You won’t have to ask your Borador twice!

Average Cost of Dog Training in Concord, CA

Dogs love to be social. In fact, most of the time, seeing their doggo friends reigns supreme even over being with their owners. It’s true, and that’s why canines love dog training so much. Taking them there is a bonus for you, too. Why? Because training with your pupster cements the bond you already have.

What type of dog training is available in Concord? Group lessons are yours for the taking. Enrollment for you and your pooch will cost between $175 and $200 for a 5-week course. Bring your pup’s best leash and a pocket full of high-value treats to teach your dog the rules of good behavior. You’ll learn the basics when you first start out. Be ready for your woofer to be top of the class!

In-home private training is an alternative if your canine kiddo is a little on the shy side or not quite ready to join the big boys in a group class. Private lesson fees will vary depending on what your dog needs to learn and how old they are. Expect to pay between $100 and $200 an hour for individual instruction. Some instructors will offer follow up support by email or phone.

Looking to leave the dog training to the pros without getting involved yourself? Opt for board and train and send your furry BFF off to a boarding facility to learn or even the dog trainer’s home. In Concord, fees for this away from home service will run around $1400 a week.

Can’t bear to sleep away from your pupster at night? Not ready to have them mingle with bigger dogs? Look to private in-home dog training by downloading the Wag! app. Message a Wag!-approved trainer and set up your pooch’s first lesson. At just $60 per one-hour session, it’s the beginning of a wonderful doggo-trainer relationship! You’ll be in on the action, too, training right alongside your dog.

Going Off-Leash in Concord, CA

Northern California has a beauty that is hard-pressed to beat. Sunshine, mountains, and plenty of green spaces – what dog could ask for more? Native Concordian pupsters are out and about at parks and trails from morning till night, enjoying the crisp early morning air and the sensational sunsets. 

Looking to join these happy pups? Make sure that Fido is licensed and vaccinated, and your good to go just about anywhere in this dog-friendly town. The first stop of the day is Lime Ridge Recreation Off Leash Dog Area (North). It’s a picturesque spot where all well-trained four-leggers get to run and roam from sunrise to sunset. Before taking Fido there, work with a trainer to make sure recall skills are top-notch. If you still have some work to do, a dog trainer with Wag! will be more than happy to help you out!

Next destination? Walnut Creek and Acalanes Ridge, of course! It’s the perfect trail to trek at the end of the day since it is just over an hour long and is classified as easy to do. You’ve got a combo of all types of surfaces to traverse. Meander along a creek, cross a wooden bridge, and even climb a ridge. Your furry hiking companion will need refreshment after this hike, so be sure to bring water and a snack along to eat when the trek is done.

Dog Training in Concord, CA

One of the things that draws pet owners (and their pets) to Concord is the amount of wide open spaces to enjoy. The big outdoors really is the city’s claim to fame. Concord boasts over 260 days of sunshine a year, after all, and that means plenty of fresh air for Fido. Concord dog trainers with Wag! are out on the trails as well, practicing with their own dogs to bring the knowledge back to you. 

You’ll no doubt meet a dog on almost every trail, out enjoying nature just like you. Does your pooch know how to properly meet and greet a strange dog? One of the popular dogs at this end of town is the French Bulldog. If well-socialized, this little dynamo proves to be a friendly one and gets along with just about every dog on the block. 

Another happy go lucky pup living in Concord is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. This adorable pupster has the brightest eyes you’ll ever see and a smile to match. Some Corgis like to herd, and that’s due to their incredible lineage. Just a few of their ancestors are the Keeshond, the Finnish Spitz, and the Norwegian Elkhound.

No matter your pup’s size, age, or breed, they will thrive with the attention and fun of in-home private dog training. Connect with the best local trainer for your dog and unleash your pup’s potential today!
