My name is Carolyn! I am a professional dog walker and trainer in Bucks County Pennsylvania. My dedication in life is to strengthen the bond between pets and their people through patience, understanding and positive training. It is my belief that with consistent, rich education, training and exercise, less dogs will end up in shelters. I have been actively training and walking dogs for over 15 years. Being very hands on, several dog training apprenticeships, and well as an intensive 4-day Puppy socialization certification program. I'm very well versed in pack management skills (Walk and Train). The method I use is mystery because of the differences of the dogs so first and foremost, positive/reward based training practices. My education continues to grow as I seek out new information on how to better understand the canines that live in our homes as family members. My one true passion in this world is training and advocating for our canine companions!

About Dog Training in Ardmore, PA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is your woofer getting frazzled with figuring out the doggy door? Be patient; once they learn the ropes, they’ll be in and out non-stop! To help them along, try the Lure Method. Take your dog’s favorite treat, attach it to a string, and lure them through the door as they follow the prize.


Training Fun Fact #2:

Dogs have very keen noses and love to put them to good use. Canines also adore a good game, especially if it includes exercise and a treat. Use “hide and seek” as a way to teach your dog to follow a trail. Once your pooch learns to seek you out in the most difficult places, transition to them finding an object like a favorite toy.


Training Fun Fact #3:

A spritely dog who fits in your lap and has a personality that belies their size is the Schapso. With lively lineage from the Miniature Schnauzer and the Lhasa Apso, this dog is ready to go wherever you’ll take them. In fact, they may be prone to getting over-attached to their pet parent if they are not exposed enough to others. Socialization is a must with this pooch.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Ardmore, PA

Is your eager pup excited for school? Dog trainers in Ardmore are more than ready to take on any challenge. Whether your dog is a youngster just learning the rules of good doggo behavior, or they are a senior dog who’ll benefit from the mental stimulation, dog training will prove a worthy pastime.


All dogs love to train. The attention, the treats, and the never-ending praise you provide are things that dogs look for to make a day extra-special. How to give your dog a great life? Look to group classes where they can meet and greet other dogs while receiving instruction at the same time. In Ardmore, group dog training lessons cost about $140 per course. 


Some pet parents like to train at home. The convenience is a big part of the package. Expect to pay between $125 and $150 per hour for sessions at home or private instruction at the trainer’s facility. Either way, your dog is getting one on one attention.


Is your dog timid or young and you are not sure how they will fare in a group class environment? Classes can be noisy and the four-legged participants pretty excited. But, perhaps you are worried that your budget does not have room for private lessons where training is in a quiet setting.


Our furry family members are unique and we only want the best for them. You want them to have confidence and be all-around good pooches. This is where Wag! can help. In-home private dog training is the best place to begin.


Wag! can offer you training beyond traditional methods with a customized plan that suits you best. At just $60 per one-hour session, it’s the best deal on the block. Connect with the right local dog trainer for you in Ardmore and book your first lesson.


Going Off-Leash in Ardmore, PA

Is your pupper licensed, vaccinated, and outfitted with a comfortable collar and leash? That’s all you need to take Fido out and about in Ardmore. Neighborhoods like Wynnewood and Penn’s Landing are ready to welcome all well-behaved pups. Your dog will have a woofing good time at their pup-friendly patios and parks.


What does your dog like to do best? If it’s catchinga ball, then head to Harford Park Off-Leash Area in nearby Wayne. This park is best suited for dogs who respond to voice commands without hesitation because it is not an enclosed area. 


Your dog will have fun here, with five acres to explore. But if they don’t come when called and tend to venture out of your sight, work with an Ardmore dog trainer to work on these skills before trying out this park.

Keep your dog by your side and practice heeling skills while outside enjoying the best nature has to offer.
