Training a dog in home

The Benefits of In-Home Dog Training

Many people are too busy to travel to a training class. I come to your home at a time that is convenient for you. Day, evening and weekend appointments are available.  I offer dog training and behavior modification programs within the Bergen County, NJ area.  Here are a few reasons you should consider training at home:

Puppy and child
  • People and their dogs sometimes struggle in a group class because the pace is too fast, too slow, or the environment is too distracting to concentrate. You can accelerate your success by getting personalized attention in a quiet, familiar setting.
  • While at your home, I can see the real life situations that arise and show you how to train your dog to respond the way you’d like.
  • Dogs include the context of the training environment (the “who” and “where”) into the things they learn. Therefore, it makes sense for you to train your dog where you need him to listen to you most often. Arrangements can always be made to train in other locations.
  • If your dog displays any aggression, training is a critical but group classes may be too stressful for both of you.
  • Birth to 16 weeks of age is an important stage in a dog’s development. Often group classes won’t admit your puppy at this age because he hasn’t completed his vaccines. Don’t miss the opportunity to give your puppy the best start in life. Puppies can begin training as early as 8 weeks old.
  • You may only need to work on certain issues. With private training, you are not confined to a set curriculum. Training is customized to target your specific needs in the shortest time possible.

Obedience Programs or Individual Training Sessions

You can choose to enroll in basic, intermediate, or advanced obedience programs or take individual training sessions as needed. The primary focus of our training will be to teach your dog to properly respond to the everyday scenarios you encounter. However, I can also teach you how to train your dog to perform tricks, dance moves or specific tasks if you so desire.
