Dog Training in Putnam County NY

Felix is a terrific young Collie with a dedicated and loving family. However he was only listening to his owners when there were no distractions & only if they had treats. As a result, they contact me for dog training in Putnam County NY

His lack of compliance made it impossible for his family to let him off-leash outside and to control him around high levels of distractions. This is a common problem for so many owners…when it DOESN’T need to be.

Felix and his family achieved great success in a short amount of time. If you want to improve any of your dog’s behavior problems or obedience training, contact me today: 914-774-7654 or

I am so proud of Nicole and Bailey!  Here is what she has to say about our training together…

Dog Training in Putnam County NY

Cody is a high energy Lab mix who would take advantage of every opportunity to run out the front door and not come back when called.  This is a potentially dangerous issue that many dog owners struggle with every day. 

We taught Cody that just because the door was open, does not mean he can bolt out.  Dogs thrive on consistent structure and leadership.  Cody now respects the thresholds (front and back doors of the home) by politely sitting and waiting for his owners to tell him when to enter and exit through the door.  Whether it is dog training in Putnam County NY or at home dog training anywhere else, it’s best to train the dog in the setting where the issues are occurring.  The success we had with Cody would not have been possible with a group training class, but in home dog training was a key to his transformation. 

We focused on training Cody to “Come” when called (recall command).  Cody was very unreliable and would not come when called.  This is something I see with virtually all dog training clients.  It’s unfair to expect your dog to reliably come when called unless they were properly taught to do so.  This is a common disconnect between dog and owner that leads to A LOT of frustration on the owner’s part.  Many owners think their dog should automatically come running back when they call, but this is not the case.  We need to teach the dog to come when called.  With the right at home dog training system, this is possible for any age or breed dog.

If your dog does not come when called, you are not alone…this is a very common struggle.  However, there is no need for you to live frustrated and concerned about your dog not reliably listening to you.  A qualified dog trainer in Putnam County NY should be able to help you create a reliable off leash recall for your dog.

In conjunction with a rock solid recall, there are four other obedience commands that every puppy and dog should know.  Knowing these commands will make your life easier and less stressful, while providing your dog more freedom and safety.  Learn about the 5 Obedience Commands to Make Your Life Easier.

I worked with Benji’s owners initially with their first dog, Casper.  Benji’s owners asked me to help them with training Benji using my in-home dog training in Putnam County NY, in order to take him through my obedience training program.  I consider it a compliment and privilege when previous clients are so happy with our training, that they ask me back to help with the training of their next dog.
