“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

About Dog Training in Arlington, TX

Training Fun Fact #1:

Does your four-legged friend go barking mad at the sight of a brush? Can’t get them to sit still for the groomer? Your pal just might perk up if there’s a treat involved. When training your dog to get brushed, introduce the brush and follow up with a tasty treat. If they’re calm when you brush them, use a clicker and treat to mark the behavior. If you’re just starting out, use a soft brush that doesn’t pull before moving on to pin brushes and combs.

Training Fun Fact #2:

If your dog is like most, chances are they love to play fetch. Why not take their favorite game a step further and train your dog to carry things? Building on your dog’s natural fetching instincts, place an item in front of them and start with the “pick it up” command. Repeat until your dog understands what to do. Over time, move away and add the “come” command. From there, you can work on the “give” command. This neat trick will take some time to master, but with enough practice, your doggo will be helping out around the house in 3 to 4 weeks!

Training Fun Fact #3:

Lassie, Beethoven, Old Yeller -- these are just a few of the movie-star mutts we know and love. Ever wondered where to start training your dog to act in movies? Some of the coolest commands animal actors may need to know include riding a skateboard, biting a pants leg on cue, and opening doors! Does your doggo have what it takes to land the “pawfect” role?

Average Cost of Dog Training in Arlington, TX

How much does dog training cost in Arlington, TX? That depends on a variety of factors. In-home dog training in Arlington costs $90 per hour on average. Travel fees of up to $40 may apply depending on where you live. Some trainers offer packages for private instruction at the training facility. This training option starts at around $300 for 6 weeks. It’s also important to note that some in-home dog trainers in Arlington offer a limited number of home visits. Others won’t train aggressive dogs.

Group obedience dog training classes in Arlington could cost anywhere from $175 to $195 for 4 to 6 weeks. These classes are tiered, which means your dog will need to attend all three levels of the class to graduate. That equates to an investment of three months and upwards of $600. Group classes may not be the most budget-friendly option for busy pet parents. Additionally, group training limits your one-on-one time with the trainer, so you may not have the chance to work on your pup’s specific behavior issues.

Searching for a more personalized approach to your dog’s training? Save up to 30% on Arlington in-home dog training with the Wag! app. Here’s how it works: download the app, book your session, and chat with your trainer using the app’s direct messaging feature to create a personalized training plan. Arlington dog training through Wag! puts you in control of the time, date, and place of your training — all for just $60 per hour-long training session. That means you’ll have a few bucks to spare for dog toys and treats!

Going Off-Leash in Arlington, TX

The City of Arlington takes good care of its canine citizens with a handful of well-equipped off-leash areas. Of course, pet parents must follow the rules! Apart from cleaning up after your pup, you’ll need to ensure their socialization skills are up to par. Fortunately, if your pal only plays well with dogs their own size, you’re in luck — most Arlington dog parks are divided into fenced zones for large and small dogs.

The Rush Creek Dog Park is a great place to start your off-leash adventures in Arlington. This off-leash zone comes complete with everything you need for your dog’s day out, including separate fenced areas. Planning to work on Max’s off-leash manners? Stop by as early as 5 AM and you just might have this pup playground all to yourself!

Does Rufus excel at coming when they’re called? Tails ‘N Trails Dog Park is just the ticket for your big boy or girl who needs space to roam. You and your pooch can cover a lot of ground at this spacious park, which also features dog-friendly trails through a densely wooded area. A word to the wise: some pet parents don’t always play by the rules. That’s why it’s extra important to supervise your dog at all times and make sure your buddy is on their best behavior!

Dog Training in Arlington, TX

When training class isn’t in session, Arlington dog trainers are working hard behind the scenes at the city’s animal shelters and humane societies. Volunteering at Arlington’s adoption shelters is an excellent way for trainers to gain experience and teach basic obedience to doggos awaiting their forever home.

What breeds will you most often see walking down the city’s streets? In Aggtown, mutts steal the show! When it comes to trainability and temperament, mixed breeds are, well, a mixed bag. Arlington dog trainers can refer to the parent breeds’ characteristics to determine general traits, but every mutt is unique. Book a session with a dog trainer near you to delve deeper into your dog’s training needs and behavior issues.

The adorable Yorkshire Terrier also features on the list of top ten breeds in Arlington. These pint-sized prima donnas can be a little stubborn to train. With heaps of praise and a few tasty treats here and there, they’ll learn the obedience basics in no time. Once you’ve established the fundamentals, test their intelligence with fun canine sports like rally and agility. Need some help getting a handle on your Yorkie? With the help of an Arlington dog trainer, teaching Princess how to mind their leash manners and come when called will be a cinch!

The Chihuahua is another favorite with the pet parents of Arlington. These spunky, spirited pooches get a bad rap for being yappy and protective, but proud parents of Chi-Chis will strongly disagree! Chihuahuas need the right approach to training — that is, a calm yet firm demeanor that lets them know you’re the alpha of the pack.

Got an overprotective pupper who thinks they rule the roost? An Arlington dog trainer can help with that! Whether you need a helping paw with training a puppy, or you’d like to break your older dog’s bad habits, Arlington dog trainers with Wag! are experienced and knowledgable on a wide range of dog training fundamentals.
