About Dog Training in Allendale, NJ 07401

Training Fun Fact #1:

Did you know dogs feel comfort and security having a leader? You can take on the role by attending dog training classes and bonding in the process. Even a dog with a dominant personality will follow the person who gives them positive and loving instruction. Start withbasic commands and work to more advanced tasks. The more you do with your dog, the closer you’ll get!


Training Fun Fact #2:

A dog with a health condition can lead a normal life with your help. In fact, the more you treat them as if everything is a-okay, the better it is for them. Work with their abilities to give them mental and physical stimulation, even if they have limitations. A dog with hip dysplasia, for example, still needs fresh air and a quiet walk about the yard a few times daily.


Training Fun Fact #3:

A dog’s sense of smell can be both a help and a nuisance! The super-powered sniffer is helpful for amazing tasks like detecting low blood sugar. But when the scent of fresh-baked cookies on the counter calls, you’ve got to put training to good use. Teach your dog the “down” or “off” command any time their nose goes near the kitchen counter.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Allendale, NJ

 Allendale dog trainers offer various types of instruction for eager pooches and pet parents. How much do group classes cost? Classes start at $150 for 6 weeks of lessons. Courses are often given in a training facility, which can sometimes be noisy. Excited dogs tend to bark, and if your pup is timid, this can be overwhelming. 


Perhaps your furry buddy would suit private in-home instruction best. This involves a trainer coming to your home. One hour lessons can be $150 per hour, with travel fees and a pre-lesson consultation added on. It’s pricey for some, but many dogs thrive with individual attention.


If you are happy to take a hands-off approach, you can send your dog off to board and train. One week of intensive instruction can cost around $1500.


But if you cannot bear to be parted from your pup for even one day, or are looking forward to training your dog yourself, Allendale dog trainers with Wag! are ready to work with you. Download the Wag! app, book a session that suits your schedule, and chat with a trainer to formulate a lesson plan. On average, Pet Caregivers using Wag! charge $57-63 for a 60-minute In-home Training Session. The estimated rate will be displayed at the bottom of the screen during booking, with a final price provided when a Pet Caregiver is selected for the service.


Going Off-Leash in Allendale, NJ

Pet parents in Allendale have some basic rules to follow as responsible dog owners. Picking up after your dog when out and about in town is expected. Dogs must have been vaccinated for rabies, and licensing is required. Once these small and simple details are dealt with, the fun with your doggo can begin.


Check out Saddle River County Dog Park (at the Wild Duck Pond Area) in Ridgewood for a doggone good time with dogs of every size. Two enclosures ensure that this off-leash adventure is a positive one. The park is large, and provides a pawsome experience for well-behaved pooches from sunrise to sunset.


 Liberty State Dog Park is less than an hour away and well worth the drive. Sure, it’s in a metropolitan area, but enjoy the outdoor performances and pay your respects at the “Empty Sky” September 11 memorial. Your four-legger will be leashed for the duration, and it’s the ideal spot for practicing commands like heeling and down stays.


Not quite sure if your dog is ready for a busy park like Liberty State? Call on an enthusiastic local dog trainer. They are always ready to help!
