As a Pet Trainer and pet enthusiast I absolutely love dogs! I have been a trainer with PetSmart for over 2 years now and whether at work or home, I am constantly surrounded by different types of doggos. I have three of my own (Pheona, Sasha and Delta) and would love the opportunity to help other pets stay active, stimulated and loved!

About Dog Training in Orlando, FL

Training Fun Fact #1:

The stars of the show in a rousing flyball competition are often the small, spunky breeds. Flyball involves sprinting over a series of four jumps in a relay race to a spring-loaded box. Small dogs, like the Yorkshire Terrier and the Shih Tzu, tend to bounce over the hurdles as opposed to large dogs, who sail gracefully. Both instances are fun to watch. It goes to show, no dog is too small to have a love for athletics! 

Training Fun Fact #2:

You are not imagining it – your dog does have the ability to express themselves through facial mannerisms. Researchers recruited a few willing canines and recorded their facial expressions in different instances, such as in the presence of food and when a human was paying attention to them. The most commonly seen pupster pose was described as the inner eyebrow raise. The study concluded that dogs most definitely showed the most expression when people were focusing on them. Even food didn’t elicit the same response!

Training Fun Fact #3:

Dogs are so attuned to the smell of things that they’ll often chow down on a meal before they even taste it. How is this so? Canines have far fewer taste buds than humans do. In fact, they have about one-sixth as many as people. This means hungry pups are relying on smell to decide what attracts them. The lack of taste perception doesn’t affect their willingness to eye your food, however. Despite their love of grub, training your dog to not beg is a pretty straightforward task.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Orlando, FL

Do you want to learn more about dog training in Orlando? The cost of the service will be based on your four-legger’s unique needs. On average, the price for a  six-week group class is $150. Lessons will be given one hour per week. Be prepared to attend every week so that your pup can get the most benefit from the class.

Looking for in-home training to help your woofer brush up on their skills and manners? Private lessons will cost, on average, $80. There may be a consultation fee to determine exactly what your pup needs in the way of training, and sometimes there is a travel fee, too. Board and train packages are available for those who want their dogs to be taught intensively and off-site at a boarding facility or at the trainer’s home. Prices for this service can range from $1000 for one week at doggy boot camp to $2400 for two weeks. The cost for dogs with aggression or fear may be more.

Is your pupster ready to start learning? Dog trainers in Orlando may offer fun classes alongside the work. Dogs love to use their brains as well as their bodies and will be thrilled with the chance to learn agility or take a tracking class.

Going Off-Leash in Orlando, FL

Hit the turf at Orlando’s off-leash dog parks and give your pup a chance to practice their obedience skills. Doggos headed to Orlando’s parks have to be licensed and tagged with identification. Aggressive dogs have to stay at home, as do female dogs in heat. Make it a habit to be watchful of your dog at all times and be sure to pick up after them to keep the parks pristine.

Downey Dog Park

is a favorite with canines and humans alike; it’s a spacious fenced-in area with a pond and plenty of trees. It’s perfect for a day in the great outdoors. The park has sections for small and big dogs, so if your pooch is tiny, you don’t have to worry about accidental injury caused by large, playful dogs. The big dogs have access to the pond. The news is that it’s a popular pastime to play in the water, making for a muddy environment.

Head to Polk City for a day of exploring the trails. General James A. Fleet State Trail is a must-do for doggos who love to trek. It is an on-leash trail; there is an abundance of animals living in the park and plant life that shouldn’t be disturbed. This nature trail is the perfect place to practice leash manners and obedience commands like heel and stay. 

Outings with your dog will be a blast if they are well-behaved and know how to focus when needed. Take advantage of dog training lessons with a local trainer in Orlando to bring out the best in your barkster.

Being a dog-friendly city, Orlando is the place for dog sightings on every corner. Orlando dog trainers with Wag! are honing their skills by taking care of homeless pets at the local shelters. These caring trainers are prepping dogs for their next fur-ever home, somewhere in sunny Orlando!

What breeds of dog do you most often see on promenades through parks and outings to the beach? Well-behaved furry companions seen in “the City Beautiful” are breeds of small size. The cute Maltese is a fan-favorite, and that is no surprise, based on their affectionate and playful personality. They are a pooch that needs socialization from an early age and consistent interaction with people of all ages to feel their most comfortable. 

Another pupster who reigns supreme is the Dachshund, the compact little dynamo who loves to dig. They are keen on chasing after prey, too.  This dog has to have excellent recall skills and be willing tocome when called, even with distractions.

The Shih Tzu and Yorkie are best buddies in Orlando, and another member of the gang is the Miniature Schnauzer. This canine is a busy one and requires an owner willing to put in the effort to work the mind and exercise the body. A vocal pup, this spritely companion will keep you on your toes.
