Everyone that knows me knows that I am the dog lady. No one loves dogs more than me and I have dedicated my time to learning more and more about our four legged friends. I take care of each pup like they are my own and give them just as much love! I pride myself on the extra steps I take beyond the service being provided and my ability to connect with both 4-legged and 2-legged beings :)

Some dogs simply love to eat — and they don’t necessarily always eat the right things. Some love getting into the trash to snaffle a snack, some like chowing down on rocks, and others even have a tendency to eat clothing. There can be many different causes for this type of behavior, including everything from boredom and a need for attention to poor diet and a number of health problems. Your vet can help you determine if there’s a medical reason for your dog to eat things they shouldn’t, while there are plenty of dog trainers in Winthrop, MA, who can help you get to the bottom of any behavioral issues.
Does your dog have a problem with barking when left at home alone? If so, there are a few different ways to train your dog out of this nasty habit. Maybe you’d like to try the desensitize method, which involves breaking the link in your dog’s mind between you leaving and being left alone. Alternatively, you could try making less of a big deal about leaving the house, or addressing the triggers that cause your dog to bark. Whichever option you choose, your neighbors will surely thank you.
No one said dog training had to be serious all the time. Why not have some fun and teach your dog to perform some cool party tricks? For example, maybe you’d like to teach your puppy to pass a note to someone, catch a treat from their nose, or do the “circle me” trick. And if you’re looking for something particularly impressive, nothing beats teaching your dog how to ride a skateboard!
If you’re searching for dog trainers in Winthrop, MA, you’ll no doubt be aware that there are plenty of options to choose from. What you might not realize is that choosing the best dog trainer isn’t always easy.
There are several factors to consider when choosing a dog trainer near you. How long has the person been in business? What qualifications and experience do they have? What training methods do they use? Are they a good communicator? How much do their services cost?
Then there’s the matter of choosing between group classes and private training lessons. Group classes can be extremely useful if you want to socialize your dog while working on a few basic obedience skills. They’re a particularly popular option with pet parents looking for puppy training, but they do require an ongoing commitment. The cost of group lessons ranges from approximately $150 to $350 for 4 to 6 weeks of classes.
If your dog isn’t suited to group sessions, you might opt for private Winthrop dog training sessions. This means your dog is the sole focus of the trainer’s attention and you can target specific problem behaviors.
The downside is that private training can be quite expensive. It’s not uncommon to pay anywhere between $80 and $150 for a private training session — even more in some cases. And while you might be able to lower the per-session cost by booking multiple lessons, the cost is still significant.
In comparison, dog trainers with Wag! offer rates starting at just $60 for a 1-hour in-home training session. That includes one-on-one training and a customized training plan designed to meet your dog’s needs. Who said improving your dog’s behavior had to cost an arm and a leg?
There are plenty of ways to treat your dog to an adventure in Winthrop, MA, but there are few better than taking a trip to an off-leash dog park. Unfortunately, you may need to travel a little further afield to find the right place for your furry friend to enjoy some leash-free fun.
One option well worth a look is the Bremen Street Dog Park in Boston. Featuring separate areas for small and large dogs, this off-leash area is also home to agility courses if you want to work on some training with your pup. Other features include water fountains, pet waste stations, and seating.
Another Boston dog park you might want to check out is the Joe Wex Dog Recreation Space in Peters Park. Featuring a 10,000-square-foot space for large dogs and 3,000 square feet for smaller breeds, this popular park is the ideal spot to do some doggy socializing. There are large stone slabs for dogs to sniff and explore, while surrounding Peters Park is a pretty spot for a (leashed) walk when you’re finished.
Of course, you’ll need to make sure your pup knows how to behave at the dog park before your visit. That means they’ll need to be accepting of strangers and play nice with other dogs, not to mention reliably come when you tell them it’s time to go home.
No matter whether you need basic puppy training or intensive behavior training for your dog, there are plenty of dog trainers in Winthrop who can help. And the best part? Booking local dog trainers is easy with Wag!.
