About Dog Training in Newport Beach, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Chihuahuas are beautiful, loving dogs, but not all pups are born knowing how to be perfect pets. And because they’re small dogs with big personalities, Chihuahuas can sometimes have a problem with growling defensively at other dogs and people they meet. There’s plenty you can do to combat this unsociable behavior, including socializing them from a young age and making obedience training part of your daily routine. Teaching your dog to stay calm and quiet in certain “trigger situations”, such as when the doorbell rings, can also be a big help.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Our dogs have some pretty funny and endearing behaviors, but sometimes those behaviors can be frustrating for you — and downright dangerous for your pup. One obvious example is a dog who likes eating things they most definitely shouldn’t, such as garbage, clothes, and even rocks. Eating inedible objects is known as pica and it’s a lot more common than you might think. It’s caused by everything from anxiety and boredom to a range of medical conditions, so the first step in solving this problem behavior is taking your dog to the vet for a check-up. 

Training Fun Fact #3:

Have you ever thought about letting your pooch try a doggy sport? Dogs can learn an impressive variety of sporting skills, and there’s a surprising range of activities where they can put those talents into action. For example, maybe you’d like to teach your dog how to dock jump, do rally obedience, or run an agility course. You’ll need a patient and consistent approach to get the best results, and if your pup proves to be a slow learner, there’s no shortage of dog trainers in Newport Beach who can help.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Newport Beach, CA

Choosing the right dog trainer isn’t easy. Not only do you need to find someone who is professional, reliable, and experienced, you also need a trainer who’s able to form a close bond with you and your dog. Popular trainers are often booked up weeks in advance, while there’s also the not insignificant matter of cost to consider.

If you’re looking for dog trainers in Newport Beach, CA, you may decide to sign your pet up for some puppy training classes. These classes help your pet socialize with other dogs, learn some obedience training essentials, and bond with you.

There are many Newport Beach dog training services that offer puppy socialization classes. Typically, you’ll need to sign up for a schedule of 4 to 6 weeks of classes. Prices vary between services but you’ll generally pay somewhere between $150 and $400 to register your dog for a series of group lessons.

But if your dog doesn’t feel comfortable in a group setting, or if they could benefit from some one-on-one training time, you might decide to book an in-home training consultation. Private training has several benefits, allowing the trainer to focus solely on your pet and giving your dog the comfort of training in their own home.

Unfortunately, private training is often expensive. You’ll commonly pay between $100 and $150 an hour for an in-home consultation with a Newport Beach dog trainer — even more in some cases. Compare that to the rates of trainers with Wag!, which start from just $60 an hour, and you’ll see the importance of shopping around to find good value.

Plus, because dog trainers with Wag! develop a customized training plan for your pet and will work with you to help create a polite pooch, there are lots of good reasons why you should better your dog’s behavior with Wag!.

Going Off-Leash in Newport Beach, CA

If you’re searching for the best off-leash areas in Newport Beach, CA, you’re spoiled for choice. One of the best options you can check out is the Newport Beach Dog Park. Located near Fashion Island, this popular park is open from 7 AM till dusk 6 days a week, and 9 AM till dusk on Wednesdays. Features here include AstroTurf, seating, and drinking fountains, so it’s a handy space for your pup to enjoy some socializing and get some exercise.

Unfortunately, dogs are only allowed on the sand in Newport Beach before 10 AM and after 4:30 PM, and they must be on a leash at all times. But if you’re keen for some off-leash fun, make the drive to Huntington Dog Beach. Open every day of the year, this pretty stretch of sand is the “ultimutt” destination for pets that love to get wet. There are 1.5 miles of sand to explore, so you’ll probably want to spend a lot of time here making the most of it.

Of course, before heading to the beach with your dog, make sure they know how to swim in the ocean and stay safe near the water. Teaching them not to play rough and to not run away is also essential to ensure successful off-leash adventures.
