About Dog Training in Brooklyn, NY

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs are wonderful creatures that bring a lot to the lives of their owners. Savvy and determined medical alert dogs go one step further and can even save the life of their owner when trained for the task. Alerting to a condition like a heart attack or warning of an episode like a low sugar in Diabetes are just two of the ways canines can be pawesome heroes. How does a dog learn this skill? Specialized training takes place, sometimes over a period of years. 

Training Fun Fact #2:

Match the gorgeous Akita with the handsome Boxer, and you get an athletic, highly energetic pooch. The Akita parent is large and strong. As well, the Boxer is muscular and sturdy. Both pups are in the American Kennel Club’s Working Group and thrive on tasks like bringing in the newspaper. What kind of dog results from this spectacular canine combo? Picture the four-legger, the designer dog is the Boxita!

Training Fun Fact #3:

Dogs can sometimes be born with an absolutely courteous and kind nature, just like humans can. The best way to utilize this pleasant personality is to put your dog in the position of being polite whenever you can. Did you know that a thoughtful canine can rub off on people and maybe even change the course of their day? This is exactly what therapy dogs do. They reach out a paw to those in need of a pick me up.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Brooklyn, NY

Is your pup ready to learn from a Brooklyn dog trainer? There are lots of doggos in this bustling city, so the opportunities to train your dog are plenty.

Pooches that love to play with other dogs will thrive in a group class. Training typically takes place over four to six weeks and the cost averages around $300 per course. The price will vary depending on how old your pup is. Another determining factor is the intensity of what is taught in class. The more classes you both attend, the higher level of training your furry companion will achieve. Whether you are taking your pup to learn the basics or they are in an advanced level, it’s essential to attend every week. Dogs that miss one of the weekly sessions may fall behind pretty quickly.

Board and train is another option where pooches head off to the trainer’s home or facility for an away-from-home training experience. Dogs that are taught in the instructor’s location go through a boot camp of sorts. They'll learn skills from proper leash walking to greeting strangers nicely to leaving the neighbor’s cat alone. Expect to pay around $2250 for a 2-week stay.

Private in-home training is the perfect scenario for a pupster who isn’t ready to join a group class, or who has behaviors like leash lunging. Training one on one with an instructor at home may give your dog the edge they need to be a top-notch trainee. In-home sessions in Brooklyn range from $125 to $250, with differences in price being attributed to how much your dog knows when starting out. Aggressive dogs often need a more extended training session, and that can increase the rate, too.

Look to the Wag! app for a competent and friendly trainer that has your dog’s best interests at heart. Affordable and fun sessions can be taught right at home for just $60 per one-hour session. Brooklyn dog trainers with Wag! are happy to work with you at a time that fits your schedule. Download the app and book a lesson. It’s that simple!

Going Off-Leash in Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn is a super fun city in the Empire State, and part of the excitement is seeing dogs having a blast all over town. To be a part of the gang, have your dog fully vaccinated and in possession of a current dog tag. Leashes are a must unless your dog is in a designated off-leash area.

If you are looking for a place for your four-legger to roam, look no further than one of Brooklyn’s many off-leash dog parks. One of the most fun places for pooches to play is Kaiser Park, a 25-acre space on Coney Island. Enjoy the breeze off the bay and then take a stroll along the pier.

The Marine Park requires dogs to be on a leash, but that’s a small detail when it comes to this fantastic green space. The park is 530 acres and every inch a dog’s paradise. Imagine the sights and smells when walking a trail beside a marsh! Fido can keep an eye out for frogs and turtles while you birdwatch.

If you like Marine Park, then you and your pupster will love the trails at Prospect Park. Who knew that Brooklyn was home to such a lovely trail system. Located right in the heart of the city, this amazing space has waterfalls and lakes. Certain areas of the park are off-leash early morning and in the evening, so take this time to practice your furry buddy’s recall skills. Grab your pupster’s leash and head out for the day.

Dog Training in Brooklyn, NY

Central Park is a destination you and your dog will be heading to, no doubt, to see some of the many events that take place all year long. 

You’ll meet and greet just about every type of dog when walking through this 843-acre urban doggo oasis. The French Bulldog will strut about in style, happy to be in the number one position of favorite dog breed in Brooklyn. They’ve taken over the spot of the Labrador Retriever, who is now in spot number two.

Both dogs have a loyal nature, and even though one is small and the other large, both can be destructive if left on their own too long. Train them to enjoy interactive toys by rewarding them with one each evening for a short while. Then, when you have to go out without them, they’ll see the familiar toy and have a fun time until you return.

Other popular pups in Brooklyn are the Bulldog, German Shepherd, and Golden Retriever. The Bulldog will be more than happy to show their stubborn and comical personality to anyone who will watch their antics. Both the Golden and the Shepherd are active dogs with a keen sense of responsibility that enables them to train and succeed as service dogs. Take them to obedience class and see them graduate at the top of the pack.

Whether you are looking for 60 minutes or multiple sessions, the best in-home dog trainer for you is waiting in Brooklyn. Look to the Wag! platform as an easy and affordable way to schedule lessons for your eager pup!
