Dog Training

Professional Dog Training in Queens, NY

Intelligence, unconditional love, and an eagerness to learn… dogs already have everything they need to be perfect companions- and training unlocks their true potential! Proper training is key to forming the strongest relationship with your dog, and the experienced professionals at Waggers Pet Care are here to help.

Does your dog pull on the leash? Do they jump on guests and run away when called? These unwanted behaviors can be frustrating for you and your family. We’ve overcome these common challenges countless times in dogs of all breeds, ages, and situations.

Proven & Positive Training Techniques

Our multi-faceted training approach uses a mix of positive-based techniques, leadership, and your dog’s natural motivations to reach your goals.

Instead of relying on only one method of training, we balance several proven techniques tailored for your specific needs. This allows us to customize each dog’s training experience, leading to lasting results. Our method works for all dogs regardless of age and issues.

Our system is designed to meet three primary objectives:

  1. Teach your dog to respond to verbal commands using a positive approach

  2. Teach you and your family how to maintain your dog’s new skills at home

  3. Ensure your dog retains their new knowledge through ongoing support

Dog Training Options for All Needs

Our training classes help your dog master common obedience commands such as sit, stay, lay down, come, and heel. We also take on challenging behavior problems such as potty training, barking, jumping on people, and pulling the leash. Here are some of our training options and classes:
