About Dog Training in Alpharetta, GA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs like a job to do. We bet when it comes to being fed at mealtime, your dog will be happy to bring you their bowl. Teach your pooch the task so that when they are hungry, they deliver the feed bowl to you. Start with the Touch Method, and remember to teach a command to associate with the action, such as “dinner time” or “let’s eat!”

Training Fun Fact #2:

Having trouble keeping Dexter off your bed? First, you’ve got to make your dog’s own sleeping area cozy and irresistible. A comfortable bed in an atmosphere conducive to sleep is step one. Teaching them to stay on the bed until they inevitably doze off is step two! Work on time and distance, eventually training them to stay even when you have left the room.

Training Fun Fact #3:

The Labahoula is a real hoot to own! A wonderful mix between the Labrador Retriever and the Catahoula Leopard Dog, this highly active canine is meant for owners that live and breathe for the outdoors. That’s because this dog can have an alpha-like personality that will be kept in check by lots of activities like fieldwork, tracking, and long runs. Remember, this dog is not for the sedentary type.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Alpharetta, GA

Alpharetta is a town that’s all about community and its citizens, canine and human alike! Southern charm is evident in this part of the state, and that means pooches, as well! How much will it cost to get your dog dazzling with good manners?


Private in-home training costs, on average, between $95 and $150 an hour. Some Alpharetta trainers prefer to do a consultation first, so there may be an added fee for that. If there is a distance for the instructor to travel, this expense may be tagged on, too.


Group lessons will vary in price, all depending on what your delightful doggo needs to learn. From puppy classes to obedience refreshers for mature mutts, Alpharetta has lots of options. Expect to dish out somewhere between $100 and $200 for a 4 to 5 week course.


One can’t deny the necessity to train your dog, and with your pooch being a precious part of your life, you want to get it done right. But if traditional weekly classes are difficult to attend, you may find yourself paying for classes that you end up missing anyway.


Flexible, convenient training is the name of the game with Alpharetta dog trainers on the Wag! app. For rates starting as low as $60 per one-hour session, your dog will learn how to turn on the small city charm and keep it on naturally wherever you go! Book a lesson on the app, team up with a local Alpharetta dog trainer, and start a puptastic relationship! What could be easier?


Going Off-Leash in Alpharetta, GA

Is your canine kiddo excited and ready to hobnob with all the dogs in the neighborhood? Get them park-ready by familiarizing yourself with local leash laws before heading out. You are responsible for your dog’s actions at all times, and that means picking up after them and keeping them safely on a leash when on public property. Visit the vet to ensure they are up to date on the required vaccines, including rabies.


With so many places to explore, getting your dog out and about is easy! Looking for an off-leash hotspot? You’ve got one right in Alpharetta at Waggy World Paw Park (at Wills Park)! This fenced-in pupper's haven has 3 areas designated for dogs. Mini-mutts have a space to play, and so do the bigger dogs. Have one of each? There is a section for that, too.


Does your dog love to trek the trails? Scoot on over to nearby Marietta and choose between Gold Branch Trail, Johnson Ferry Trail, and Sope Creek Trail. Each one of these scenic green spaces has a lot to offer. From slow and winding paths for meandering to challenging hikes, you can take your pick of fun.


Does Dexter have the desire to run the other way when it’s time to leave the park? Enlist the assistance of a furiendly Alpharetta dog trainer. They are ready to help!


Dog Training in Alpharetta, GA

Alpharetta is Terrier town! That’s right, folks - the favored dogs of pet parents in this Atlanta suburb have Terrier lineage running through their blood.


First and foremost on the list of top dog is the American Pit Bull Terrier. This dog can be a handful due to their sheer strength, so dog training is a must. You’ll find they have a loyal and sweet personality when brought up the right way and do thrive when leadership is abundant in their lives.


Next up is the busy JRT! The Jack Russell Terrier is a dog with a spunky attitude and, of course, was brought to fame in the hit series, Frasier. Who can resist the winsome ways of this trainable tyke? Be ready to exercise, though – this dog needs to run!


The Yorkshire Terrier makes the list, too, and being such a darling diva deserves the spot totally! Best buddies also on the small side are the Miniature Schnauzer and the Shih Tzu. Move on over, big boys! This little gang is ready to roll the ball!


Team up with a local dog trainer on the Wag! app and see your pooch unleash their potential today!
