Dog Training in Brooklyn, NY

Dogs in Brooklyn have the best of both worlds – the hustle of “America’s Neighborhood” and the relative calm of a NYC suburb. Brooklyn dogs are “city dogs” and have unique challenges and goals.

Well-behaved dogs in Manhattan needs to know how to be polite and friendly in apartment hallways and lobbies, not be afraid of strangers, hipsters, families, strollers, joggers, bicyclists and skateboarders.


You need a friendly dog who can tolerate loud noises, inquisitive kids and everything else dogs in Brooklyn may come across. Your dog will meet many different dogs on daily walks, and should treat all of them, from the very large to the tiniest puppy well.   Both off-leash and on-leash, Best Friend’s Dog Training can help your Brooklyn dog.

Dog Training That Works

We offer several different ways to train your dog.

Private One on One "In Home" Dog Obedience

This is our original program. In this program, our professional dog trainers will work with your dog and teach you how to best train your dog. This is ideal for dogs who are displaying dangerous or unwanted behavior in your home. Our team of trainers mean that we fit into your flexible schedule and can work around your needs.

Board and Train (followed by private dog training in Brooklyn, at your home)

This is a two-week dog boarding and training program. This is the family most referred to friends and family. This option is great for busy families or dog-owners that have little time to train their dog, are planning a vacation, are pregnant, or if 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. Do you have a puppy? Consider our Puppy Kindergarten Classes.

This unique benefit is for the life of your dog and provides unlimited follow-up group classes, annual picnics, exclusive message boards and group events for dogs. Lifetime Members have unlimited access to weekly classes to continue your training, learn new skills and improve socialization.

Why Our Dog Training Works Is The Best In Brooklyn

No luck with 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 in-home 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 Group Class

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.
