About Dog Training in Addison, TX

Training Fun Fact #1:

Training a dog to track is an intricate process, but there are innate traits in canines that will help along the way. One way is to start with an artificial scent. Create trails in your yard first, and then expand the area, teaching your pooch that a reward awaits at the end of the scent. Have a buddy that wants to learn the trade, too? This is ideal as dogs love to work in packs.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Is your dog ready to walk and roll? Teach them leash manners by allowing them to get used to the leash before your first adventure around the block. For puppies, it’s key that their leash is not too big and bulky so as to not be intimidating. Let your pupster walk around the house a few times a day, dragging the leash for a few minutes to learn it’s not that scary.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Knowing your dog’s lineage is part of the parenting package. Why is that? Knowing the typical personality of your chosen breed of dog helps you determine if they will suit you. Wanting to adopt a Border Collie? Avid runners or those who wish to take up the exercise are the pawfect partners for an energetic herding dog like this.



Average Cost of Dog Training in Addison, TX

Want to learn more about training your dog in Addison? The cost of training a pooch is really a bargain when you consider the lifelong benefits. Group classes in Addison, on average, cost between $150 and $200 for courses that last 4 to 6 weeks. What is involved in the course? It depends on your pup’s present abilities. A beginner lesson, for example, will teach all your pup needs to know for pawsome puppy behavior. How to walk correctly on a leash and steps for sitting pretty are typically part of the training process.


Not quite ready to put Max in a boisterous setting with lots of excited dogs? Well, there is the in-home training option, quite popular in Addison. One hour sessions run around $125 to $150. Travel fees may be added if the trainer is traveling any distance from home. The great thing about in-home lessons is that your dog gets individualized training, right from day one.


Your pup is unique and worth the time it takes to help them be an all-around well-behaved dog. But with group classes on a once a week, same day, same time schedule, that can present a problem. Make-up classes aren’t always an option, and besides, maybe your doggo is too shy to thrive in group classes just yet.


Looking for a personalized plan for your pooch? Does your schedule require that dog training lessons be tailored to your timetable? Look to Wag! for the solution. An hour-long in-home training session is just $60 and can be booked at a time that works for you. Find the right local dog trained for you via the Wag! app and book your first lesson.


Going Off-Leash in Addison, TX

Addison may be a small city, but the citizens there are big on dogs! And with parks galore in this area of the state, there is no shortage of pupperific things to do! Before you head out the door, there are a few rules and regulations to keep in mind. To purchase your dog’s registration, you need a proof of immunization against rabies. And be a responsible pet parent by picking up after your four-legger to keep Addison clean.


Does your dog wake up every morning full of energy? Start the day’s activities with a trek on the Bluebonnet Trail in nearby Plano. It’s a long and winding adventure through several parks with views and wide-open spaces. Of course, the trail’s namesake flower, the Bluebonnet is peppered throughout for a pretty backdrop to the hike.


Chisholm Trail

is another Plano gem and is open from sunrise to sunset. Your dog will be shaking in delight from nose to tail when they see the herons and ducks along the way. This walkway hails from back in the 1800s, so take a trek back in time as you exercise. 


Once back in Addison, stop at Redding Trail Dog Park (at Dome Park) for an off-leash romp. It’s a big space and pretty pawpular with local pooches, so make sure that your dog is socialized and has excellent recall skills for calling them to you when it’s time to go home. Need some help with that? Look to an Addison dog trainer for assistance!
