About Dog Training in Accokeek, MD

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is your pooch eager to share their natural sense of adventure with you? Get ready to hit the trails with a dog who is trained to stay close and come when called, even with distractions. Rewarding your dog with praise and a high-value treat goes a long way to having them return in a flash.

Training Fun Fact #2:

A bored doggo with too much time alone will soon use their extra energy to dial up the bad behavior. Chewing furniture and counter surfing are two favorite pastimes of dogs with no place to go. Keep your pup’s yearning for trouble under wraps by hiring a dog walker for a mid-day promenade. Dog training classes or activities like agility are ways to tone down the boredom, too.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Search and rescue dogs worldwide are performing miraculous tasks after natural disasters. Does your dog have what it takes? Top-notch obedience skills, a steady and calm demeanor, and a dedicated trainer (that’s you!) are part of the rescue dog package. 

Average Cost of Dog Training in Accokeek, MD

For private in-home dog training, Accokeek dog trainers typically charge by the hour. Expect to pay between $110 and $160 for individual instruction. Travel fees may apply if the teacher comes to you. In some cases, you’ll be required to take lessons at the trainer’s facility.

How much are group obedience courses in Accokeek? The average cost is around $150, with classes taking place over 4 to 6 weeks. Training can start with puppy classes where mini mutts learn the basics. Advanced courses will cover skills like off-leash heeling and performing a long stay.

Board and train is an alternative for those who want to leave the training to a pro. Depending on what your woofer needs to know and how long you can bear to be parted from them, you can pay between $1700 and $2000 for a week or two of away from home training.

Many pet parents prefer a hands-on approach because they want to learn all aspects of training right alongside their dog. Others just can’t fathom spending even one night away from their treasured companion. Group class commitments are sometimes challenging for dog owners who have a schedule that often changes.

In these cases, in-home training may be the best solution. Look no further than the Wag! app to connect and chat with a knowledgeable trainer who can set you on the right track. Wag! makes dog training at home easy, and at $60 per one-hour session, it’s affordable to boot. Book your dog’s first dog training lesson

is a national landmark come to life, with plenty of friendly dogs ready to explore its boundaries. This town really is full of history, and it’s important to respect the significance of the area. When out and about, watch for signage marking particular sites.


Dogs in Accokeek must be on-leash and in possession of licensing tags, clearly visible on the collar. If you have a Pit Bull-type dog, including breeds like the American Staffordshire Terrier, be sure to register them with the county’s special management division. Once these details are done, you are set to enjoy local parks and trails.
