Hi, I'm Jackie and I've been a dog lover since birth...seriously, recently unearthed home movies show my parents teaching me to say "dog sit" at 9-months-old. In addition to Wag, I own my own dog training business. I own three dogs: an American Pit Bull Terrier named Kid, a poodle/terrier mix named Charlie and a working-line German Shepherd named Grady. I look forward to meeting your pets and giving them the same care and love I give to my own dogs on walks.

About Dog Training in Astoria, Queens

Training Fun Fact #1:

It’s not always wise to give your pupster table scraps. If you’ve got a finicky eater who insists dinner be topped with a few morsels of human food, this is alright as long as the food given is something like plain rice or vegetables. Spicy and sauce-ridden morsels can lead to gastrointestinal distress and even pancreatitis. Stick to plain foods like boiled chicken or fresh cooked pumpkin.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Do you have a pooch who tugs on the leash more than walks along nicely? Train your dog not to pull the leash by combining verbal cues with a tasty treat. Practice every day as you walk to the park and back. Consistent training means that your pooch will get the idea quickly. Constant practice means it will soon become second nature.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Are you hoping to make a workout partner of your pooch? Train your best buddy to do push-ups and you’ll soon see them counting to 10 right by your side! Three commands must be mastered to make it work: sit, down, and stand. These are basic obedience commands that your dog will pick up quickly with hand gestures and a tempting tidbit of food.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Astoria, NY

How much does it cost to train your dog in Astoria? A private in-home trainer will charge between $125 and $250 an hour, but this will depend on how far they have to travel, whether a consultation fee is required, and how much new know-how your doggo has to digest.


Specialized training is always a blast for dogs who have extra energy. Once you woofer has worked their way through a couple of levels of obedience classes, they’ll be ready to try some fun activities like agility and flyball. But first, enroll them in training. Dogs who love a crowd will fit right in with other boisterous pups in a group environment. In Astoria, group lessons cost about $300 for a six-week course.


Is Baxter a barker? If you are searching for an affordable option for taming the talk, dog trainers on the Wag! app offer a great solution. Chat with a local trainer to book a personalized session for rates starting at $60 per hour. 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. Every detail will be covered before you even begin, including time, place, and what you’d like your dog to learn. 


Going Off-Leash in Astoria, NY

Ready to treat your four-legger to some off-leash fun? Head to an Astoria dog park after making sure you know the rules. Have your pupster’s license and vaccination papers in hand when out and about, and keep them safely leashed unless inside an enclosed dog park area. 


Excessive barking and roughhousing are frowned upon, and pet parents are expected to keep their furry charges under their control. Struggling to get your tail-wagger to toe the line? Partner with an Astoria dog trainer for help. They are happy to assist!


A popular hang out for pooches is Hunter’s Point South Park. It’s 11-acres of fun for puppers of all sizes. With nifty amenities to entertain the dogs, there is lots of room to frolic and make furever friends. You’ll find this park packed with pups and people, so keep a close watch on your dog.


Have you been working hard with a local dog trainer in Astoria? Put those lessons into practice at Marine Park in nearby Brooklyn. Your best buddy will remain on-leash but won’t mind it a bit with all there is to sniff and see. This well-preserved route is home to wildlife including fish and slow-moving turtles. With your pooch under your control, they can enjoy the scenery without disturbing the habitat.


Dog Training in Astoria, NY

With Astoria being a highly-populated area with an abundance of pooches in the community, enthusiastic Astoria dog trainers are always in demand. Seek one out to help you ensure your furry BFF is well-behaved.


No matter which local dog park is your favorite, you’ll see a German Shepherd making their way through the gate. This is because they are high on the list of fan favorites at this end of town! Regal, loyal and eager to please, the German Shepherd draws attention wherever they go. Be sure to teach them how to heel because they’ll be strong once full-grown.


Hello, Retrievers! The Golden and the Labrador are Retrievers that reign supreme in Astoria. They have no tricks up their sleeve when it comes to training—they are eager to learn and clever as can be. Both of these pups make perfect service dogs with their keen noses and super smarts.


Do you have a happy hound ready to tackle any task? Or a shy dog hoping to break out of their shell? Astoria dog trainers with Wag! can set up the ideal lesson plan to suit your dog’s personality.
