“Here we go!”

Hello! My name is Heather and I am energetic, enthusiastic, and excited to meet your dog! My family had dogs since I was 6 years old and I’ve found as many chances I can to work with dogs ever since. In undergrad I had an opportunity to work with a team to train mental health therapy dogs which opened my eyes to how dogs learn, feel, and communicate with us. I aim to build a positive relationship with dogs so they’re just as excited to see me as I am to see them when it’s time for our walk.

I am graduate student from Cincinnati, with lots of experience. I have spent my entire life with dogs. They are my favorite animal. I have a Saint Bernard poodle mix of my own that is trained, playful, and loves to socialize! I am flexible and willing to have dogs in my home if they are friendly and well-behaved. I also speak Spanish with native fluency and a bit of German, so if your dogs are trained in those two languages, I can handle that as well! I am looking forward to meeting your pet :)

I have a serious love for animals and have done everything from bottle feeding to administering medicating while owners are away. I cycle about 50 miles a week and love walking and running with dogs of all ages. If there's anything that I can do to make the animals or you more comfortable, I will try to make it happen.

Hi, I’m Kelsey! I grew up in Ohio, and recently moved to Columbus. I love all animals but especially dogs! I’ve had many pets and have had the wonderful opportunity to own two dogs. Truffle, a Cockapoo whose an oldie of 19 years! And Ufo(oof-oh) a 9 month old Terrier Mix. I love going on runs with my little Terrier so that he uses some of his never ending energy. I also enjoy going on slow walks with my elderly little Cockapoo. It’s a great mix and I hope to walk your dog(s) as well!

About Dog Training in New Albany, OH

Training Fun Fact #1:

Did you know that the world record holder for a litter of puppies is 24? Owning and caring for one dog is a big responsibility, let alone 24 hungry mouths to feed and puppies to toilet train. To get your little four-legger on the right track to peeing outside, start with the timing method. Taking your pup to potty at opportune moments, like when they are excited or right after a nap, is key to success.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Dogs love to bark. To communicate their feelings, they’ll vocalize and use body language. If the barking starts to get out of hand, teach your furry companion the quiet command. This useful knowledge is usable in many situations, when at home or out on a walk. Dogs relate to the word "quiet" when consistent training is part of the package, and know that it’s time to tone things down.

Training Fun Fact #3:

If you love the ambiance of the training class as much as your dog does, why not go for gold? Take your dog through all of the ranks of obedience, right up to rescue mode. Certain skillsets are the hallmark of a rescue canine. Learning to find someone, knowing how to retrieve, and being capable of performing a swimming rescue are examples of pooch heroics.

Average Cost of Dog Training in New Albany, OH

Being the best canine kiddo on the block when it comes to obedience is a great goal to have. Dog training in New Albany is the way to get there. Whether your pup is young and has to learn all of the commands, or is a senior dog looking to brush up on skills, dog trainers in New Albany are ready and waiting.

Dog training really is essential. Woofers who have trained and know their commands are happy and content. Not only that, they’ve got doggo friends galore! Group classes are great for making life-long four-legged friends. To attend a weekly class for a month to 6 weeks, budget around $150.

In-home private dog training is a blast for pooches. They’ve got every inch of attention from the trainer. They can focus 100% without the distraction of other dogs barking and jumping as they await their turn. If your dog is shy, in-home classes may be just the solution for boosting their confidence. Expect to pay about between $100 and $200 an hour. The price varies, depending on whether a consultation is required, and how much your furry buddy needs to learn.

Pet parents who want to hand their furry charges over to the pros for a boot camp style of training will pay about $2400 for a 2-week session at board and train camp. This option typically comes with follow-up support after the lessons are complete.

With this information on hand, you are ready to enroll Fido in dog training classes. If you have a hectic schedule, look to in-home private dog training as the perfect solution. Dog trainers in New Albany are enthusiastic and know how to bring out the best in your dog. In-home private instruction with a dog trainer with Wag! is convenient and can be booked at a time that suits you best. Dog training lessons are affordable, at just $60 per one-hour session. It’s as easy as downloading the Wag! app, and booking your first lesson.

Going Off-Leash in New Albany, OH

Pet parents have a responsibility to learn the leash laws of their city. In New Albany, it’s as simple as getting your dog a fancy collar, registering them with the city, and attaching their tag to the collar. Once these small details are taken care of, you and Fido are ready to explore the city. Head out for a promenade, and on the way home, stop at a dog-friendly patio for a slice of pizza.

If you’d rather exercise than eat, you can easily do that as well. In nearby Lewis Center, playing off-leash is a favorite pastime for dogs who visit Alum Creek Dog Park. Two large grassy sections are designated for dogs to blow off steam. If your canine kiddo is a mini mutt, not to worry. The big dogs have their own section for rambunctious games, and smaller dogs can strut their stuff without a care. Because this park is so big, dogs have to have pawesome recall skills even when distracted. If you need help with that, dog trainers in New Albany are happy to assist!

Going on a camping trip is always a blast when you bring your dog along. What can be better than snuggling with your dog in a tent after a day of excitement? Akron is less than two hours away, and that means a weekend under the stars is just a booking away. Make reservations at Cherokee Park Playground and pack your gear for a weekend of fun. Keep your furry BFF on a leash all weekend, especially when sitting around the campfire.
