Basic Dog Obedience Training

We begin training with our introductory training skill program, which helps set the pace for your dog’s advanced learning stages. We focus on a positive award technique that stimulates your dog both mentally and physically while teaching basic introductory training skills.

Basic Commands:

  • Sit down

Our award-winning basic obedience training program provides advancement for dogs that are more developed and mature.

Advanced Dog Obedience Training

Continuing on with the training of your family pet, our highly skilled team here at Wolfen 1 take tremendous pride in our top-rated training programs. Offering advanced obedience training that helps your dog to dismiss the distractions caused by people, cars, and animals, your dog soon learns to focus entirely on their new owner. Expanding on the basic training provided, our advanced dog obedience training program teaches your dog to have a greater respect for its owner.

Advanced Commands: 

  • Stop
  • Back Up
  • Give
  • Speak

This very popular advanced dog obedience training program not only teaches the concept of respect, but trains your dog to function at peak levels when surrounded by various distractions.


Dogs can easily take on bad behaviors, especially if they have suffered neglect or display an outward resistance to training. The consequences of these bad behaviors can most assuredly be quite challenging, but you can absolutely reverse the behaviors by engaging in the specialized training programs we offer here in Lake Carmel.

Dogs typically develop bad behaviors because of a lack of proper exercise, a lack of social skills, or from fear and/or a lack of discipline. When these scenarios are present, dogs can then develop and display behavior patterns that are less than acceptable.

Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

  • Agression
  • Fearfulness
  • Guarding
  • Separation Anxiety

If you are looking to invest in a successful training program for your new puppy or dog, then look no further than the experienced team of trainers here at the Wolfen 1 in Lake Carmel. Our friendly trainers are on hand to answer all your questions and address your every concern.


Therapy dogs, which are becoming quite popular today in nursing homes, schools, hospitals and retirement homes, require specialized training. To qualify as a therapy dog, regardless of its breed or age, a dog must possess a unique temperament and personality.

Dogs that cannot sit still or are unable to remain calm are highly unlikely to qualify as therapy dogs. Dogs that are extremely friendly, gentle and are very comfortable around new people and new environments, make ideal candidates to become therapy dogs.

To become a therapy dog, your dog must:

  • Complete basic and advanced obedience training
  • Enjoy meeting new people
  • Follow basic obedience commands like sit, come or leave it
  • Remain calm and still during visits  

Therapy dogs are not companions to one owner, but rather to multiple new owners unlike service dogs. With multiple owners, they need to possess people skills, social skills, good health, and the ability to respond comfortably to the touch of people.

Dog off leash training

Off Leash Dog Training


If you spend a good deal of time hiking, running or being out and about in open fields and areas with your dog, then off leash training would be your training program of choice. Off leash training, however, should only be undertaken if your dog has successfully undergone basic and advanced obedience training.

Our top of the line off-leash training program affords owners the ability to take control of their dogs even when abundant distractions are present. It is also a spectacular training program that helps dogs handle unsuspecting separations from their owners.


Further to our specialized training programs here in Lake Carmel, we also offer a 6-week training program at the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford that teaches your puppy basic and advanced training. This training is performed by kennel owners themselves who spend countless hours, giving prime attention to both dogs and owners.

 Programs we follow:

  • Attention Getters
  • Sit Methods
  • Down Methods
  • Heel & Come
  • Climb 
  • Place

Offering programs that range from basic modification training to specialized obedience training, the team at the Mine Hill Kennel is steadfast in providing only the best in training techniques. When we reach week 5 of the 6-week kennel training program, we integrate the owners into the program to help with an easy transition from trainer to owner. Owners share in the program protocols to learn how to define their role as leaders.
