Types Of Dog Training Classes
As the name suggests, this training is specifically for puppies, and it’s designed to establish a healthy, happy owner-puppy relationship, as well as to teach you and your dog the fundamentals of obedience. This training is typically recommended for dogs between 14 weeks and 1 year of age. However, we recommend starting as early as possible to prevent bad habits from forming first.
Your puppy will learn the basic commands of heel, sit, stay, down and place, as well as an introduction to recall and manners, such as no jumping and no biting. As an owner, you’ll learn about proper dog handling and dog behavior, how to deliver commands, and use reward and praise.
Puppy Training is offered at our facility in Clifton Park NY as a Private & Group Training Package, or as a 3-Day Training Package with International Dog Trainer Tom Davis.
Dog Obedience Training
While obedience training is usually associated with puppies, dogs can learn at any age. In fact, training helps keep your dog’s mind sharp and offers mental stimulation and structure. Similar to Puppy Training, our Dog Obedience Training is designed to establish a healthy relationship between you and your dog and teach your dog basic commands and behaviors.
This training is great for owners who have recently adopted an adult dog, but it is also beneficial for older pets who need a refresher course, or for teaching adult dogs new skills.

Once your dog has mastered basic obedience commands, Off-Leash Training is the next step. Using a remote collar, or e-collar, you’ll learn to control your dog from a distance, including recall, without a leash. Not only will this allow you to enjoy a hike with your dog off-leash, knowing that you can recall them should you encounter wild animals or other hikers, but it’s a great insurance policy should your dog slip their collar while walking on a busy street.
Your dog must be at least 6 months old for off-leash training, and have 100% mastery of basic obedience commands without the use of food rewards. We also require a minimum commitment of 5 sessions for this advanced training.
Off-Leash Training is offered as a Private Training Package (min. 5 sessions) in Clifton Park NY. We also offer Board & Train and a 3-Day Training Package for those who are not local.
Behavior Modification Training
Behavior Modification Training is the most sought-after dog training we offer. Our creative and personalized approach to each dog’s behavioral issues has allowed us to help owners and their dogs with leash reactivity, food aggression, resource guarding, anxiety, even dog and human aggression. In fact, we regularly work with dogs who have a bite history.
Our proven methods put an emphasis on owner education, and our extensive canine behavioral knowledge and experience allow us to adjust tactics and strategy as we progress with each dog and owner.
Our Board & Train program is ideal for in-depth work on most behavioral issues. However, if a dog has severe issues toward humans, we recommend the owner is involved in the process by enrolling in Private Sessions or a 3-Day Training Package for those who are not local.
