Dogs in NYC and other “big city” dogs have different challenges and goals. It’s the city that never sleeps, and it seems everyone has a dog – from the very big to the very small!

Dog Training For Your Busy Life

We offer several different options for dog training classes.

Private One on One "In Home" Dog Obedience

This is our original program. In "One on One" Basic Obedience, a dog trainer will work with you and your dog and teach you how to train your dog. If your dog is displaying dangerous or unwanted behavior in your home, this is an ideal program. Because we have a team of trainers, our schedule is flexible and you we will work with you to find an ideal time for training.

Board and Train

Followed by private dog training in NYC, in your home.
This is a two-week dog boarding program that is followed up with private lessons in your home.

This is our most referred program.

The Board and Train option is great for families or busy dog-owners that have little time to train their dog, are planning a vacation, are pregnant, or their dog is physically stronger than they are.

We can include housebreaking in this option!

A dog must be at least 4 months old to start training. Vaccines, including Bordatella are required for the Board and Train program.

Why Our NYC Dog Training Classes Work

Have you unsuccessfully tried other trainers? Flunked obedience school?

It’s okay, we get these calls a lot. The problem is usually not the dog, but that the trainer didn’t successfully teach the owner. Or, they are stuck using one method, and that method doesn’t work for the dog or the owner.

This is a shame and a waste of time and money.

Best Friend's Dog Training understands that telling someone to "do this" is not good enough. You need to understand why you are doing something.

We know it takes some people longer than others to understand what is being taught. That's why we offer One Price for the Life of the Dog. We give free evaluations so you can ask us all the questions you want and there are no surprises.

Best Friend's Dog Training boasts a team of reliable and successful dog trainers. No matter what your schedule or availability, we have a trainer that can work with you. Learn more about our staff.

Puppy Kindergarten and Puppy Training Classes

Puppies have different needs and expectations then older dogs. The impressions we make on a young dog will affect the puppy for life. We will teach puppies using positive-only reinforcement and if you choose, clicker training. We offer both puppy group classes and private, in-home instruction.
