About Dog Training in Coral Gables, FL

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs are always keen for mental stimulation. Sure, they love a long walk through the forest or a romp on a sandy beach, but our canine friends need to work their brains, too. Teaching your clever companion to understand hand commands is a fun and effective way to work on obedience training. Using the verbal command in tandem with a hand signal, and then removing the verbal instruction is one way to accomplish the task.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Are you hoping to teach your dog how to use a doggie door so they can explore your safely enclosed backyard at will? Try the Hands-On Method as a way of showing your pooch how it’s done. Get down at your dog’s level and give them a little guidance until they get the idea. Soon, they may be outside more than in!

Training Fun Fact #3:

Those of us who love to hike often have a loyal four-legger by our side as we trek the trails. Looking to teach your dog to follow trails as you walk and climb? Bring along a friend and some high-value rewards to keep your pooch motivated. Start off easy and raise the difficulty as your pupster learns to follow a scent.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Coral Gables, FL

Is your tail-wagger ready for school? Whether it’s puppy classes or a refresher course for a senior dog, dog trainers in Coral Gables are suited up and ready to go. Group classes are a blast for busy pups and older dogs who love to socialize. Expect to pay between $150 and $250 for weekly lessons spanning a month to 6 weeks. Prices will vary, depending on whether your dog is young and needs to learn the ropes, or is a bit older and heading into advanced training.

If Fido is shy and needs to start off slow, consider in-home private training. A trainer will arrive at your residence in most cases, or you will take your furry companion to the trainer’s facility. A consultation is often part of the plan to determine what your dog needs in the way of training. Costs will average between $100 and $150 per hour.

Board and train is an option for pet parents who have schedules that don’t fit the norm, or who may want their dog trained while they are away on vacation. Prices are based on the needs of your dog. An away from home course in Miami will run about $2000 for about two weeks but will really depend on your dog and what they need to learn.

Our pups are unique, and we want to give them the best opportunity to have confidence and feel part of our family pack. How to do that? In-home private dog training with a dog trainer with Wag! is a great place to start. Training at home means your dog does not fall behind if a lesson is missed. Individual attention is a welcomed part of the package, too. 

 Coral Gables dog trainers with Wag! can offer you training above and beyond the traditional methods. A customized plan is yours after simply downloading the Wag! app. Connect with the best local dog trainer for you by chatting and paying in-app. Then, set up the first lesson for your pawesome pal. 

Going Off-Leash in Coral Gables, FL

Is your pooch vaccinated, licensed, and outfitted with a leash? If so, you are all set to see the sights of Coral Gables. Neighborhoods like De Soto, Hammock Oaks, and Gables by the Sea offer well-behaved dogs a roaring good time at their many pup-friendly patios and parks. If your dog likes the surf, there’s a chance for a pupperific time there, too.

What’s your dog’s favorite pastime? If it is fetch, then head to Hobie Island Beach Park to throw the ball or frisbee in the sand. This Miami beach welcomes all well-trained dogs, and because of its shallow shores, pupsters of all shapes and sizes find it the perfect beach for playing. This sandy spot is a busy one, and although dogs are allowed off-leash, when it’s packed to capacity, you may want to keep Fido on a lead.

Would you like to combine walking on trails with a break in a designated off-leash area? Head to Hialeah to explore Amelia Earhart Bark Park. Keep Fido on a leash as you wander the nature trails. Once you reach the dog park section, your furry buddy can run and play with the many other doggos who frequent the park. It’s a superbly maintained space, so do your part and pick up after your dog when needed to keep the enclosure pristine.

Coral Gables is really paradise for doggos with all of the wide-open spaces for exercise. In nearby Key Biscayne, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park awaits. Venture through the nature trails and keep your eyes open for migratory birds. Don’t let Fido chase them. Instead, work on perfecting recall and heel skills to keep your dog right by your side. Enjoy nature with your canine BFF and respect the creatures that live there.

To ensure a safe and fun time with your dog while hiking trails and swimming in the surf, learn the basics of dog obedience from an enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer. Form a strong bond with your dog as you train, too.

Dog Training in Coral Gables, FL

What type of skills does your dog need to learn? Do they love to counter surf and you need to break the habit? Maybe your dog needs to learn how to walk calmly on the leash. A dog trainer with Wag! can help put your pup on the Doggywood Walk of Fame. 

What types of dogs will you see on a promenade in beautiful Coral Gables? From the big to the small, you’ll find a variety of happy pooches in this sunny city. The Golden Retriever loves the beach and is often seen swimming along the shore. They are natural athletes after all, and love to dock dive, too, when taught the skill. 

Another beach bum is the energetic Schnauzer. Whether a Giant Schnauzer, Miniature Schnauzer, or somewhere in between, this curious breed is always ready to look for seashells and even a crab or two.

The American Bulldog is a popular pooch in Coral Gables. This sometimes portly pup prefers to socialize on a dog-friendly patio, where the shade is present, and the water bowl topped up. They are keen for a walk, but this breed does better in cooler temperatures, so need to be taken on a stroll in the early morning or evening. Excessive heat does not suit this dog.

Find a dog trainer with Wag! and book your furry friend’s first lesson. Discuss a training plan tailored to your special buddy and enjoy the fantastic results!
