Maybe! Let’s talk.
You can start the process of potty training at any age. The speed of potty training will depend on your dog and what type of schedule you can maintain. We aim to create a realistic potty training schedule for you and your pup.

They might have leash aggression and we should join you for a walk.
No. That’s one of those old wise tales that turns out not to be the right solution.

We'll Help Your Dog Make the Most of Its NYC Life by Learning Manners and Solving Specific Behavioral Issues.
Training a dog, whether it's a puppy, an older dog, or one with more complex behavioral issues, can be challenging if you aren't an expert. But training a dog in a city like New York, while even more difficult, is also absolutely essential.
Not everyone who owns a dog in New York, for example, is able to provide their furry friend with enough outdoor space to play and thrive. This can result in dogs getting frustrated and agitated and spending long periods barking, which can generate complaints from neighbors.
Often, New Yorkers resort to taking their dogs to the local park, which is where, sometimes, problems may arise.
Even vast public outdoor spaces like Central Park or Washington Square Park can become crowded pretty quickly, so if your dog is not well trained, it might end up posing a risk to other people, animals, and themselves. What if your dog gets a bit overwhelmed by the chaos, and it attacks another dog or a person?
Sometimes, the person who has been attacked (or the owner of the dog who has been attacked) may decide to take legal action against you. This can be an absolute nightmare, not to mention that it may ruin that beautiful, nurturing bond that you were creating with your dog.
This is definitely a situation that no dog owner wants to find themselves in.
There is, luckily, one great solution to this: dog training in New York City.
If you would like to find out more about why dog training is crucial, especially in a big city like New York, then keep reading.
Just like us humans, each dog is an individual with very specific needs, difficulties, and emotions. Then, it wouldn't make sense to use a generic approach when training a dog: what works for your dog might not work at all for your friend's dog, for example.
This is why we offer four different types of dog training in New York City, and even within each type, we carefully tailor the actual process to meet the requirements of your dog.

A happy, well-behaved puppy grows into a thriving, friendly adult dog. Our puppy training includes activities designed and geared towards younger dogs, and the best bit is that we can start offering you advice even before you bring your puppy home! In this way, you will ensure that you are fully prepared for what's soon to come and that you provide your new little furry roommate with the care and training that are most suited to their age.
If you have a slightly older dog, we would love to help you train them in a way that works for them and their age. In this type of training, we look at things such as potty training, leash training, basic manners, and commands.
There is no shame in owning a dog who displays behavioral problems. Perhaps, they were adopted after having suffered a trauma, injury, or ill-treatment, or maybe they were born with a congenital defect that caused them to develop difficulties when behaving with other dogs of people. Still, we totally understand and agree that having a dog with behavioral issues in New York can be stressful, and we are here to help. Whether your dog is barking aggressively all day, destroying furniture, attacking other dogs or people, or anything else, we will meet them to assess the situation and come up with the best and most personalized training program for them.
Just like some babies and children, certain dogs may suffer from separation anxiety. This is always a difficult situation to deal with, even more so in a city like New York. For example, you might want to make the most of the city's vibrant art, culture, and nightlife, but you keep finding yourself in a position to turn down invitations because your dog begins wailing and just won't stop. This is incredibly heartbreaking for any dog owner and can result in your neighbors or friends complaining about it. At Dog Training NYC, we have developed a very specific training program for dogs with this type of behavior, so you can count on us to help you out.
To make the most of your life in NYC and to help your furry friend enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces that this city offers, you should definitely look into dog training. At Dog Training NYC, we have a very simple, three-step process:
To begin with, you'll want to get in touch with us and explain your dog's situation in more detail. At this point, we will take notes and start to build a provisional plan for them, based on what we know of your current issues and goals.
Then, we will arrange a time and a place for us all to meet: you, your dog, and one of our fantastic NYC dog trainers. We will either come to your house or meet at a park: it's entirely up to you. During this first encounter, we will try to get to know your dog better, establish a positive rapport, and check whether our provisional training plan needs any tweaks or changes.
Following our appointment, we will get started with training your dog. This will take place in different locations, depending on your dog's age, the type of dog training you have chosen, and the program we have created for them.
At Dog Training NYC, we are not here to "fix" your dog — and we appreciate that you're not coming to us with that type of mentality, either. What we strive to do, instead, is to use positive reinforcement techniques to support your dog in achieving a better, healthier, and safer lifestyle through learning behaviors that are good for both them and the others.
This happens in a gradual and natural way, which we believe is also the best possible approach if you are looking to make lifelong improvements. And because of this, it's also important to stress that you might not see immediate changes in your dog's behavior: it's totally fine, as the best dog training programs take some time to show great results.
The good news is that, once you start to notice these, you will also realize that your dog is much more likely to take to the training in a spontaneous, empowered way.
