About Dog Training in Ashburn, VA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Does your dog get into everything? Teach your pooch the “drop it” command. It’s for their safety, as well as to keep your curious pup playing with toys instead of chewing and digging through things in the house. Along with a command though, comes the opportunity for mental and physical exercise. Enroll your dog in activities like agility and obstacle course training to keep them content.

Training Fun Fact #2:

It’s not unheard of these days for a couple’s favorite pooch to serve as ring bearer for their wedding. This task is meant for a pupper able to perform despite distractions. Practice with your dog carrying the ring in a quiet setting. After the job can be carried out without a hitch, continue practicing and up the distraction factor by adding people and noise to the environment.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Are you looking to keep your clever Labrador Retriever busy? Look no further than service dog training. A dog eager for a job to do will thrive when involved with search and rescue or other lofty pursuits. Not only will your pup benefit, but you will, too.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Ashburn, VA

Is your little woofer wagging their tail whenever you mention dog training classes? Dogs love to train after all, as it gives them the mental and physical workout they thrive on. 

Dog trainers in Ashburn who offer private lessons can charge as high as $100 an hour for a one-on-one session. Weekly packages for private in-home training can be in the ballpark of about $1000.

Some pet parents like the idea of training in a group. If this is you, get ready for lots of barking and tons of fun. Your pooch will learn the ropes of socialization and get the experience of working with distractions. Be sure to attend every session, so that your dog can keep up with the rest of the canine gang.

No doubt you are excited to begin this adventure with your furry four-legger. However, there is always the concern of making it to a lesson that is held on the same day and at the same time. If you miss a class, you and your pup will miss out on the practice know-how for the week. Not all instructors can offer make-up classes.

Ensure your pooch is park-ready with convenient and budget-friendly private lessons right in Ashburn. Starting at a rate of $60 for a one-hour session, your pupster will receive individualized training from a dog trainer with Wag! right at home.

Obedience training is just a message away. Download the Wag! app, chat and pay in-app, and get started when it suits you best!


Going Off-Leash in Ashburn, VA

When exploring Virginia’s many off-leash parks, you’ll want your furry companion to be on their best behavior. This beautiful state has a lot to do for those who love the great outdoors, so get ready to venture far and wide with your dog.

Planning to see the sights near home?  Leesburg Dog Park (at Olde Izaak Walton Park) is a place you won’t want to miss! Make sure your furry companion is licensed and vaccinated and then stroll right in! Of course, you are responsible for your dog’s actions and it is expected that you don’t allow them to cause any damage to park property.

Continue to enjoy Virginia’s beauty at Bull Run - Occoquan Trail. Because it is a day-long hike, pack water and dog-approved snacks to keep energized. This trail is best attempted by fit pooches, and fit people, as it is a challenging trek. It’s worth the effort—keep your eyes open for birds, hawks, and even deer. On-leash trekking is the rule.

Taking your trusty companion on outdoor excursions is all the more pleasurable when your dog is well-behaved and trots alongside you without issue. In-home training sessions can help you achieve this and will also deepen the bond between you and your furry BFF.

What kinds of pups are seen lounging under the sun on local eatery patios? The official state dog is the American Foxhound, a friendly dog who is always looking for adventure under the clear blue sky. Come rain or shine, they are ready to follow a scent on your favorite trail. They are a cousin to the English Foxhound, an amicable dog who loves to bay and sing as much as the American Foxhound does.

The Golden Retriever, along with mixed pups with Golden and other lines, are among the top dogs in the area, too. These pooches have a love for being in nature, making them the ideal companion for dog lovers in this picturesque state. Looking for a dog that will hike for hours and always be up for a game of fetch? This is your dog!

A few smaller breeds are on the list of fan favorites. The spritely Shih Tzu and the lively Yorkshire Terrier are two perky pups seen on promenades about town. Always looking for affection and an adventure to go on, these dogs may be small but they do not lack energy! Be prepared to train your Yorkie or Shi, they’ve got the attitude and spunk to make it fun.

Connect with a dog trainer with Wag! and together, you can train your dog to be the best they can be. Whether it’s hiking or neighborhood promenades, your pooch will be the proudest on the block!
