About Dog Training in Newark, NJ

Training Fun Fact #1:

Want to teach your old Labrador some new tricks? Our fur babies are capable of learning new skills at any age, so there’s no time like the present to teach your lovely Lab how to fetch objects by name. This takes the quintessential doggy game of fetch to a whole new level by helping you transform your dog into your personal butler. Use treats to help teach your dog the names of different objects — the remote, your slippers, and whatever else you like — and then gradually increase the distance they have to travel to fetch each item and bring it to you. You’ll need time and patience to train this trick, but the hard work will be well worth it!

Training Fun Fact #2:

Want to get a dog to share your Newark apartment? If you’re looking for a canine roommate, you’ll need to figure out how to train your dog to go potty. There are a few different ways to go about it — some pet parents rely on crate training, some use puppy training pads, and others rely on clicker training. Whichever method you choose, remember that there are two key ingredients that will ensure success: positive reinforcement and a good supply of patience. 

Training Fun Fact #3:

If you’re planning on taking your pup to explore some of Newark’s best off-leash dog parks, you’ll need to be sure your dog has mastered a wide range of obedience training tasks. Top of the list will be training Fido to come when there are plenty of distractions around, as this will help you keep your pup safe at all times. You’ll also need to teach your furry friend how to behave at the dog park, including the basics of playing nice with canines of all shapes and sizes.

And if you’re looking for the perfect place to enjoy a spot of dog walking in Newark, you can always pop your pooch on a leash and set out to explore some of the park’s best walking paths.

Elsewhere, other popular off-leash spots include South Mountain Dog Park and Brookdale Dog Park. Of course, you’ll need to make sure your dog is properly socialized before letting them loose at any of these parks, and that they have a good grasp of basic obedience commands. And if your pup has any trouble mastering the essentials, there are plenty of dog trainers in Newark who can help.
