About Dog Training in Arvada, CO

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs have the capability of understanding hundreds of words. That’s why your dog knows exactly what you mean when you mention a walk. Teach them to bring you their leash with the “commands method”. Since your pooch picks up on words quickly, this chore will be a breeze. Your furry companion will love the reward, too.


Training Fun Fact #2:

Do you own a Siberian Husky or a Samoyed? These powerful pooches are natural-born pullers with an innate sense of how to get the job done. Share your love of winter with your snow dog by teaching them recreational mushing. Start with familiarizing your dog with the harness by having them wear it around the home for short sessions throughout the day.


Training Fun Fact #3:

A pooch with guarding issues can be trained to feel less stressed about giving and sharing. Several factors are essential to success. Socialization, having your dog ask permission when wanting something, and all-over obedience skills will give your dog the necessary tools to relax with the guarding problem.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Arvada, CO

Are you ready to make the move to train your dog? That’s a great decision, and the way to go about it can be determined with just a little research.


In Arvada, private in-home training is yours for the asking at around $100 per hour. Sometimes, in-home training classes are part of packages that require you to purchase multiple lessons rather than book one class at a time.


Group lessons are the way to go for a pupster that has no problem with lots of barking and activity. If your dog is not shy, enroll them in a course. The average cost for a group class is in the ballpark of $175 for 4 to 6 weeks.


Looking to have a professional train your dog while you are on holiday? Send your dog to board and train, where they learn all the basics and come home to you well-trained and in the know. Costs for this service range between $1200 and $1400 a week.


No matter which service you choose, you have to keep in mind that waiting lists may determine your schedule. And also, some instructors may ask for a paid, pre-training consultation.


For an affordable and flexible way to train your dog, find in-home Arvada dog trainers on the Wag! app. On average, at rates of $57-63 per one-hour session, this form of training is top-notch. Your dog benefits from a personalized plan, too!


Going Off-Leash in Arvada, CO

Arvada has 3,400 acres of open space and parks. The National Arbor Foundation has also honored Arvada as the City of Trees USA over a few decades. It’s no wonder dogs and pet parents love this town!


West Arvada Dog Park

is a favorite of well-behaved woofers, and off-leash adventures await! It’s an expansive space for dogs to play and meet new canine buddies. Small dogs have their own enclosure, so if you have a small pooch, no need to worry about them being bowled over.


Not sure if your dog will come when called in a big full-of-action park? Look to a local dog trainer for assistance. They are ready to give a hand.


Trails are in abundance here as well. Looking for a pawsome place to hike? Trekking is all the rage at Lookout Mountain Trail in Golden. Curious dogs will enjoy this activity-laden trail. Forest critters and fun flying insects will keep your four-legger on their toes.


Ready to play and practice commands with your pooch? Have them licensed, leashed, and vaccine-ready to frolic in these and many more of Arvada’s beautiful greenspaces.


Dog Training in Arvada, CO

With so much to do in the great outdoors, athletic dogs are popular choices in Arvada. The German Shepherd is high on the list, and that’s easy to understand. With excellent noses for tracking and following scents, this courageous dog will lead the way along any trail. But it’s not all work for this pooch. They also like to compete in fun activities like rally obedience.


Retrievers, both the Labrador and the Golden, are treasured family members, too. These gorgeous dogs are loyal and highly trainable. Choose a task, set the training rules, and watch these pups take charge of the command in no time.


Not to be forgotten are two dogs that love to be class clowns. The Bulldog and the smaller French Bulldog are ready to put on a show at a moment’s notice!


No matter your choice of family pet, Arvada dog trainers on the Wag! platform are ready to work with them. Contact a skilled and enthusiastic trainer for your dog’s first lesson today.
