Dog Training in New Jersey

Dogs in New Jersey have it great – there are some great dog parks in Hoboken and Ft. Lee, as well as wide open spaces, parks and city areas with lots of people and other dogs. Unfortunately, not all dogs will be as well-trained as yours!

If you have a access to amazing parks, bustling downtown areas and dog-friendly events with lots of people and other dogs – some not as well-trained as your dogs will be. But if you have a fearful, anxious, disobedient or aggressive dog – it can mean trouble.

You need reliable, consistent dog training that gets results. New Jersey can now work with Best Friend’s Dog Training for one-on-one dog training and dog obedience that gets results.

Dog Training For Your Lifestyle

We offer several different ways to train your dog.

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 teach you how to train your dog. At the end of this course, your dog will know Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, Down, Off, Leave it, and Place, both on leash and off leash. Your dog will follow all these commands during distractions and without food bribes. When in heel (walk next to me) your dog will happily pay attention.

For dogs that display undesirable behaviors in the home (counter surfing, running out the door, trying to eat the neighbor’s cat) this program is the way to go.

Board and Train (followed by private dog training in New Jersey, at your home in Ft. Lee, Hoboken, Wyckoff , Morris, Bergen, Sussex)

This is a two-week dog obedience boarding program that is followed up with private lessons in your home. Over the years, this program has exploded in popularity and is our most referred program from existing clients to their friends and family. Most people who choose Board and Train either have little time to train their dog, are going away on vacation, are pregnant, or their dog is physically stronger then they are. Although the owners still need to maintain training, this program requires less effort than the “In Home” program. Here’s how it works:

Your dog will come and stay with us for two weeks. At the end of this phase your dog will know all the basic commands (Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, Down, Off, Leave it, and Place) both on leash and off leash. The dog will be trained 2-3 times every day, in the home, outside, near shopping centers, around other dogs, squirrels, people, cars, and more.

We will introduce the dog to as many different circumstances as possible. Between training sessions, your dog will have playtime, snacks, and walks. When the dog returns home, a trainer will give you the first follow-up dog training lesson in your home. Best Friend’s Dog Training insists on the follow up training sessions to make the training long lasting and effective so the owners understand what to do.

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

Why Best Friend's Dog Training Works

We get calls all the time from people who said their dog had “failed” obedience school. The problem usually is not the dog but what the other school failed to successfully teach the owner. This is a shame and a waste of 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 then 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.

When you work with Best Friend’s Dog Training, you will never hit or yell at your dog. All attention getting techniques are done at very low levels and copious amounts of praise and love will be used to reinforce wanted behavior.

Unlike other trainers, Best Friend’s Dog Training offers a team of trainers! What does that mean for you? No matter what your schedule or availability, we have a trainer that can work with you. Learn more about our staff.
