The Best Dog Training in New York City
Puppy classes are a great idea in theory, but they can actually cause learning deficits and, in some cases, serious behavioral problems. You don’t need to “over socialize” your puppy with other dogs to help them become more comfortable and at ease with others. As long as you set the proper standard, your pup will grow up to be a confident, happy, and well-socialized canine citizen.
To ensure your pup receives the proper training to grow up to be a well-behaved dog, I offer low-cost dog training through a private, 3-session, in-home package and will teach you all you need to know about training your puppy, so you can raise a perfectly behaved and happy dog.
Teaching the Owner
I come to your home or meet with you in a local park, and teach you how to train your dog, using training games like tug and fetch, to teach each command.
These exercises were created with two goals: to make your dog instantly and happily obey any and all commands under all conditions, and to be totally free from all behavioral problems.
1 Session - $120
3 Sessions - $300
5 Sessions - $450
I also offer discounts for students and teachers.
Training the Dog
Instead of teaching you how to train your dog, I'll work with the pooch on a regular basis until he or she is fully trained or until his or her behavioral problems are fully resolved.
There is no set time limit. My fee is only slightly more than what you’d expect to pay a dog walker.
I offer free telephone consultations.

BECOME A TRAINER!
I offer a comprehensive, one-on-one course on all aspects of dog training. You will study directly with me.
THE CALM HOUSE
When dogs stay with me at my Upper West Side brownstone, -either during the day or overnight, they tend to become calmer, less anxious, aggressive or fearful, and much more obedient. Availability is limited.

Treating Behavioral Problems
Dogs exhibit behavior problems for many reasons. Some are mistreated as puppies, some are abandoned or neglected by their owners. But no matter the reason, the underlying cause is always deep inner stress. Yet most dog training systems aren't specifically designed to help dogs release their deep inner stress, causing these problems to persist.
If your dog is exhibiting any of these behaviors, call or email me for a free, 20-minute telephone consultation.
