At The Confident Dog we are able to bridge the gap of communication between you and your dog. Lack of communication between dog and owner can increase a dog’s insecurity and nervousness in our high-paced world. Thus, the owner can often misunderstand their pet’s behavior, which creates a strained relationship. Using leash and collar techniques while working in tandem with the anatomy and physiology of the canine breed, we are able to train you to be the leader and the guide. No longer will your life revolve around your dog’s erratic behavior. Instead, we will turn your dog into a properly mannered pooch by creating a symbiotic relationship using exercise and specific training techniques. Hands-on dog training of all ages, sizes, and breeds. Specializing in the most problematic dogs out there, there is no dog we cannot handle. Please contact us for rates.
Firstly, the trainer will meet with you and your pet for an initial evaluation. After the evaluation is complete, we offer in-home training sessions catering to the special needs of you and your dog. The trainer will recommend how many sessions needed after the evaluation. In-home sessions will last at least 1 ½ hrs. Programs that we offer are listed below.
Puppy training/house breaking
Off-leash advanced training
For any clients who have been a part of our in-home training program, we offer boarding in the trainer’s private home. Here, your pet will not only continue his/her training, but will also become accustomed to walking, playing, and feeding with other dogs in a controlled environment. The benefits are great in that your pet will return to your home relaxed and better behaved.
After 7 days of boarding, we offer a free in-home session to help transition the training process that The Confident Dog ingrained in your pet back into your home.
Please contact us at least two weeks in advance for when you plan on boarding to ensure availability as this is a popular program with a limited number of space.
We offer dog-walking to select neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY. The neighborhoods we currently offer walks to are Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Prospect Heights and Park Slope. We are continuing to expand our geographical capabilities in this arena of The Confident Dog.
These are controlled walks meant to not only give your dog time outside, but also for training purposes. Training on walks help to stimulate your pet mentally and physically.
The typical walk is for 30 minutes at $15 per dog. If you have more than one dog, we offer a discount. Dogs are walked either alone or together, maximum 3 dogs at a time. This helps to ensure that they are getting a proper, controlled walk in order for the dog walker to pay attention well to the dogs’ needs.
