“Every dog’s different & all deserve the same love!”

I‘ve been a Wag! Walker for year & have been an avid dog lover all my life! I’ve had two very different dogs; my first was a German Shepherd named Tash, a beautiful dog with enormous strength—so rewarding to train and be around. I currently own a finicky, anxious Mini Pinscher who I adore! I know Boston well and have been around animals my entire life, so I know how to earn a dog’s trust before taking control of the leash. I believe in positive reinforcement with dogs, & I think they do too!

About Dog Training in Abington, MA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Does your dog love to lick you when saying hello? Licking is a way of communication for pooches – they relay their affection that way, as taught by their moms. Not everyone likes a slobbery kiss, however, and if that’s you, it is quite easy to change the habit. Teach your furry bestie the “give paw” command as an alternative to the wet kiss.

Training Fun Fact #2:

If you are concerned that your tail-wagger gets a little too excited when approached by another dog, it’s time to ramp up the socialization. One of the best ways to do that is to teach your dog a few basic commands in preparation for time on the agility obstacle field. That’s right, dogs who play together, stay together, as friends after the fun is done.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Does your little digger make holes in the backyard faster than you can fill them in? This may be an indication that Fido wants a change of scenery. Look to the local dog park or take a trek in the forest. While on all fours, your dog will enjoy practicing the heel command. Training gives your dog an outlet for the mental energy while the hike takes care of physical needs.

When your pooch shows signs of boredom by chewing yet another pair of shoes, it’s time to get the ball rolling for training. Teaching your dog how to be well-mannered is a breeze in Abington because there are so many places to practice!

Start off on the right paw after deciding what type of class suits your pupster best. Will your dog’s tail wag the fastest in a group class environment? In Abington, courses are plentiful, with lots of pawsome trainers up for the challenge. Classes average around $225 for 5 weeks of lessons.

For dogs who prefer to bark up the right tree solo, in-home private lessons will tick all the boxes. Individual attention at your dog’s own pace is the plan here. Private dog training is the answer for your pooch in this case, and fees will run around $120 an hour.

Board and train is like a sleep-away camp for dogs, with training classes included in the package. In Abington, this type of training is yours for between $600 and $800 a week.

Still not sure which type of training is the best for Fido? Download the Wag! app to connect with an enthusiastic Abington dog trainer. Discuss your woofer’s wants, and work out a customized training plan that suits your dog and your schedule.

Going Off-Leash in Abington, MA

This town is a doggy haven with wonderful spots for peaceful walks and invigorating hikes. It’s the beauty of New England that draws dog owners here!

Before pampering your pup with a day in the great outdoors, make yourself familiar with Abington’s leash laws. There is no running at large for dogs, so keep them on a leash whether visiting a pup-friendly cafe or meandering along a local path. A dog license is a must, meaning as soon as you acquire your new furry friend, head to city hall for registration.

Where to next? Clip on Fido’s fancy leash and head to Boston. It’s a short distance away, and your pooch will love to see the sights of Abington and beyond through the car window. Freedom Trail is a puptastic spot, and the trailhead lies at Boston Common. Full of historical gems like the burial grounds of Paul Revere and Cotton Mather, you can plan to spend a morning here fur sure!

Don’t head for home yet! It’s the perfect day for trekking, and Dr. Paul Dudley White Trail is next on the list. This impressive trail has a little bit of everything for everyone, especially your main canine squeeze. Whether it’s a long hike you crave or a short jaunt to round out the day, get ready for wildlife at it’s best. Enjoy frog sightings, egret viewings, and scenic vistas hard to beat in the middle of an urban setting.

 Labrador Retrievers are top dog in this part of Massachusetts, and they have no problem reaching for the top when it comes to obedience training. This dog is loyal and eager to please, but don’t be fooled. They have a mischievous side, too. No stranger to chewing the odd shoe now and then, they do best when given the challenge of dog training.

Are you a fan of the Golden Retriever or the German Shepherd? It’s no surprise that these loveable dogs are high in the ranks with Abington dog lovers. These athletic dogs love to put their paw prints in local dog parks, showing off their excellent fetching skills and ability to track.

Don’t forget the mini-mutts of Abington. The French Bulldog and the Yorkshire Terrier make their homes here and are much loved. Perky and energetic, these dogs are thrilled with a spin around the block to see the sights. They’ll put their nose to the ground when it comes to dog training and learning obedience. Any stubbornness can be appeased with the reward of a treat or two for a job well done!
