“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 Fort Worth, TX

Training Fun Fact #1:

Described as one of the oldest dogs in the Americas, the spunky Chihuahua has got what it takes to be the ultimate companion. They are tiny but mighty and have charm that puts them at the top of their game in any social situation. Did you know that this feisty breed is born with a molera on the head? As the puppy grows, the bones slowly fuse together (similar to a human baby’s fontanelle). Despite their miniature size and fragile beginnings, this dog can excel at obedience and loves the challenge.

Training Fun Fact #2:

The noble and dedicated-to-task Bloodhound has a fantastic sniffer. This sleek canine can follow a track that is over 300 hours old and maintain a search for over 100 miles. It is said that their loose skin holds a scent, and their floppy ears move smells towards their nose. See if these facts apply to your favorite doggo by training them to track their toys for fun. Follow up with a challenge to find a piece of your clothing.

Training Fun Fact #3:

It’s a dog’s life they say, but who knew that there are over 150 canine breeds? Each breed has distinctive traits and characteristics, but only two types of dogs in the world have a black tongue. Which two, you ask? The ever-wrinkled and adorable Chinese Shar-Pei is one, and the majestic and determined Chow Chow is the other. 

Average Cost of Dog Training in Fort Worth, TX

What is the cost of training your dog in Fort Worth? Fees depend on factors like the age of your dog and the types of skills you want them to learn. Do you have a mature mutt who needs a little brushing up of current knowledge? Or did you bring your puppy home recently and want to start them off on the right paw as soon as possible?

In-home dog training in Forth Worth averages around $125 to $150 per one-hour session. Travel fees may apply if the trainer will be traveling outside of their neighborhood. Board and train lessons are a popular option and will set you back between $1100 and $2900. Often, a pick up and drop off service is included.

Group class prices average between $150 and $180. Aggressive dogs or pooches with other special needs may not be able to attend a group lesson until behavioral issues are ironed out. Often, to graduate from the training school, multiple levels of training are required. Busy pet parents may not have the ability to work around the specifications of this type of doggo get-together. If your pooch misses a class, it is also hard to follow along with the next lesson.

A personalized training plan is available at your fingertips when you download the Wag! app. Book a session after a chat in-app and schedule a lesson customized for you and your pooch. Fort Worth dog training through Wag! is easy to do and affordable, too, at $60 for a one-hour training period.

Going Off-Leash in Fort Worth, TX

Canines in Fort Worth are some of this town’s favorite citizens. Restaurants, trails, and pooch-friendly parks await well-behaved dogs, but there are rules to follow for both pet parents and dogs alike. Rabies vaccinations and dog licenses are a must for all doggos in the city, and leashes must be worn when out and about around town.

Ready to head out for adventure? Take a trek in Fort Worth and start off at the trail system found in the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. Enjoy this unique area and keep it pristine and the perfect place for a hike by picking up after your dog when necessary. Take out what you bring in and that means all garbage.

Is your dog ready to roam? Head for Waco and check out the trails in Cameron Park. The difficulty of the treks range from beginner to advanced, so choose the best one for you and your four-legger. Is your exercise partner full of energy? Have them carry a backpack filled with treats and water to take a break along the way. Keeping your curious pupper on the leash is the rule, making it easier to keep your dog safe and by your side. 

Dog Training in Fort Worth, TX

When not training your dog, Fort Worth dog trainers are fine-tuning their teaching skills by showing love to dogs in shelters.  They take them for walks and teach them what they need to know to get ready for new homes and families.

What types of dogs are learning how to be well-behaved furry friends? Short and compact pooches reign; the English Bulldog and the Frenchie are happily sitting for biscuits in the top five. The French Bulldog is a star on the rise all over the United States. This woofer must be kept well entertained and busy. A little dynamo, they may resort to getting into mischief if allowed to get bored.

Retrievers are a popular companion choice, too. The Golden Retriever holds the number one spot. Of course, this beautiful canine has been a favorite on the big screen for many years. Watch Homeward Bound, and you’ll see the personality of this faithful and energetic dog. The Labrador Retriever rounds out the top four, and a deserves a spot just for sheer determination and loyalty as a pet.
