Dog Trainer in Putnam County NY

Steve Reid is the premier choice for Certified Dog Trainer in Putnam County NY. Having helped hundreds of owners live a happier life with their dog, I am one of the few dog trainers in Putnam County NY who work with dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes.

Here is what Wiggles’ owner has to say about our training together:

“We have always adopted young adult or adult dogs. Last summer, we got our first puppy and I knew we would need guidance. Steve did a terrific job with her and with us too! From house training suggestions to basic obedience training to walking nicely on a leash, he gave us the information and practice to help Wiggles be her best. Steve is extremely knowledgeable about dog behaviors and different products that are useful. But equally as important, he was always encouraging and really built up our confidence. The best dog trainers will not be much help if they can’t work well with people too! We highly recommend Steve, especially for first time puppy owners!! – Janet Gordon

Dog Trainer Putnam County NYOne of the biggest hurdles for puppy owners is housebreaking. For this, I use a VERY successful housebreaking approach that is successful with ANY puppy or adult dog. Wiggles’ owner Janet, shares her experience through a Facebook post on my S.R. Dog Training page, “Thank you, Steve, for steering us away from wee-wee pads from the beginning. I’m not going to lie, those first few months were a little tough, making sure we took her out on a frequent schedule. But it paid off as Wiggles has not had an accident in the house in about 5 months and even has learned to signal when she needs to use the pen attached to our house. Success!!!!”

Dog Trainer in Putnam County NY

Dog Trainer in Putnam County NY  Roxy and Macy’s family was looking for a Certified Dog Trainer in Putnam County NY and are now the newest members of my at-home Adult Dog Training Program.  In our first training session, we went over how to stop their tendency to jump on visitors who come to the home.  This is one of the top 3 issues I help owners with every single day.  It’s great that your dog is happy to see people, but we can’t have them jump on people, as it’s a safety issue when it comes to knocking someone over.

Macy was a BIG leash puller (as many dogs are).  She would constantly drag her family down the road on walks.  This made walking an unpleasant experience for both Macy & her family.  I helped them learn how to properly walk Macy, so now they can enjoy going for walks and outings as a family.

Most dogs will steal food or items off the kitchen counter when given the opportunity.  This is not only annoying, but potentially dangerous.  We covered how Macy’s family should stop this unwanted and dangerous issue.
