“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 Ashland, MA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Are you new to the world of dogs? Considering your first canine adoptee? It’s wise to look for a pupster with a winning attitude and a reputation for being easy to train. The Labrador Retriever is always game for having fun and is eager to learn new things. Try a task like training to bring your slippers and see how fast they pick up the command.


Training Fun Fact #2:

Are you wondering whether it’s okay to offer a treat for a job well done? Yes, training with treats as a reward is often the way it starts out. Once your pooch understands a few basic commands and moves on to more advanced requests, you’ll find the first tasks you taught are so ingrained that your pooch will obey without even thinking about a reward. “Sit” will become second nature!


Training Fun Fact #3:

The New Rottland is a breed that is big in size and giant in heart. They are lovable companions always ready for a game, but may not know their own strength when at play! This amicable pupper is large and furry and may reach as much as 150 pounds. Teach them basic obedience right off the bat so you never have a problem controlling them.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Ashland, MA

A dog who chews everything from coats to couches needs the stimulation of dog training to beat the boredom blues. Pupsters with too much time on their paws will soon be up to no good!


Not only will training give your dog’s brainpower a boost, but it will also give them a chance to shine and show their smarts. To get started, think about what type of training will benefit your buddy the best.


A dog who loves to socialize will be right at home in a group class setting. In Ashland, a group dog training course will cost around $250 for 4 to 6 weeks. The pooch who loves excitement will feel right at home in a busy environment with lots of curious pups milling about.


Pupsters with a shy personality will fare the best with personal instruction that lets them shine in their own way. With individual instruction and attention to their personality traits, a quiet canine will come out of their shell in no time. Private in-home dog training is available in Ashland and should cost somewhere between $125 and $250 an hour. Rates will vary depending on whether a consultation fee is needed and how much your dog has to learn.


Are you looking for an affordable way to train your dog that ticks all the boxes? Connect with an Ashland dog trainer with Wag! to get underway. Starting at rates as low as $60 per one-hour session, your dog will get a customized training plan suited to their unique personality. Download the app, connect with the right local dog trainer for you, and book your pup’s first lesson.


Going Off-Leash in Ashland, MA

Ashland is a picturesque town with no lack of green space and plenty of scenic places for dogs to play. With Ashland State Park nearby, complete with trails and a reservoir, your pooch will be ready to walk for miles! Remember to keep your dog’s leash on wherever you are in this pretty park.


Nearby Boston is always a blast; head to Joe Wex Dog Recreation Space for off-leash fun. Plenty of trees shade this pooch-approved spot, and after some time in the doggo enclosure, take your tail-wagger for a trot in Peter’s Park. 


Before heading home from Boston, take a meander along Freedom Trail. It’s a trek filled with historical sites and two off-leash parks. Start your hike at Boston Common and see where you end up! Both off-leash and on-leash areas are included in the walk, so be sure to adhere to the rules as you make your way.


Work on your pooch’s heeling skills to keep them by your side when the situation warrants it. Need help with perfecting this command? Call upon a local dog trainer with Wag! to give you a hand. Note that vaccination and licensing is a must in Ashland, and remember to pick up after your dog to keep local parks and paths pristine. 


Dog Training in Ashland, MA

Ashland dog trainers look for the chance to spend lots of time outside and you’ll often see them working and training their own dogs. Then, their excellent knowledge and experience are passed along to you. 


Many pawesome adventures await energetic doggos in Ashland. What types of dogs do you see out and about in parks and trails? Favorites in the Ashland area are typically big dogs. Number one on the list is the Labrador Retriever. This love-to-work dog keeps their nose to the ground and their tail wagging whenever on the scent.


Other athletic dogs on the scene are the German Shepherd and the Golden Retriever. Always game for a walk and often extra exuberant, these dogs keep dog trainers in Ashland on their toes and busy with obedience classes. They are keen to learn and excited to show off their skills.


Not to be left out of the fun is the Boxer. They may carry a serious look wherever they go, but really don’t mind being center stage at all! Train your Boxer with positive reinforcement and a smile, and see them shine as they practice coming when called.


Small dogs in Ashland will say they rule, and the Yorkie is a good example of a pooch with a royal attitude. They’ve got spunk and sass, and relish the chance to do a trick or two when someone is watching! The Yorkshire Terrier is a sweetheart and will be even more adorable once trained.


Do you have a little dynamo or a large pooch who could use some extra help? Line up a private in-home session with an Ashland dog trainer to give them the best training paws down!
