Dog Training Programs We Offer In Mahopac


If you are a new puppy owner in need of training for your pup, then we are the team for you. We encourage early training since it is critical to developing a healthy ongoing owner/dog relationship. Often times owners put off early training of basic commands, not realizing that the longer they put it off the greater the training challenge becomes.

Puppy training skill sets we follow:

  • Obedience training
  • Name recognition
  • Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety

The puppy training services offered for those in Mahopac, are a surefire way of helping both you and your puppy get off to a good start.


Basic Dog Obedience Training

Beginning with our quality introductory training skill program, will set the pace for your dog’s advanced learning moving ahead. Focusing on a positive award technique that stimulates your dog both mentally and physically and teaches basic introductory training skills is an important first step.

Basic Commands:

  • Sit down
  • Come
  • Shake
  • Stay

The basic obedience training program for our Mahopac clients provides advancement for dogs that are more developed and mature. If, however, your new family member is a little pup, then start by participating in our early puppy training programs geared specifically to the young new minds.


Advanced Dog Obedience Training

Another top-rated program we offer here in Mahopac is an advanced obedience training that helps your dog to ignore daily distractions caused by people, cars, and animals, and teaches your dog to stay focused on you, the owner. This advanced obedience program teaches a greater respect by dog to owner and is an extension of our basic training program.

Advanced Commands: 

  • Stop
  • Back Up
  • Give
  • Speak

The advanced dog obedience training program not only teaches greater respect for owners, but it also trains your dog to function despite the many distractions that surround him.


Dogs can easily learn bad behaviors, whether through neglect or by resistance to training. Though sometimes the consequences of these bad behaviors can be quite challenging, you can reverse this behavior by way of our specialized training programs here in Mahopac.

Most bad behavior patterns stem from lacking proper exercise or social skills, as well as from fear and a lack of discipline. As a result of each, dogs can begin to display behavior patterns that are less than acceptable.

Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

  • Agression
  • Fearfulness
  • Guarding
  • Separation Anxiety

If you are in search of successful training programs for your new pup or dog, then it’s time you take advantage of our quality training programs at Wolfen1 serving Mahopac. Our dedicated trainers possess all the experience and know how needed to teach your dog the difference between good and bad behaviors.


Therapy dogs are gaining popularity in today’s society. From nursing homes, schools, and hospitals to retirement homes, their presence is enhanced. To qualify as a therapy dog, however, regardless of its breed or age, a dog must possess a unique temperament and personality.

Dogs that are unable to remain calm and sit still, are unlikely to qualify as therapy dogs. Dogs that are extremely friendly, gentle and are very comfortable around new people and new environments, are typically 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  

There is a difference between therapy dogs and service dogs. Therapy dogs are not companions to one owner, but rather to multiple new owners. Because of multiple owners, people skills, social skills, good health, and responding comfortably to the touch of people are mandatory traits for therapy dogs. Here at Wolfen 1 we strive to meet the needs of all our owners and dogs and to provide adequate training needed to perform in the capacity of a therapy dog.

Dog off leash training

Off Leash Dog Training


If you find favor with hiking, running or being out and about in open fields and areas with your dog, then off leash training is the ideal training program for you. You should only consider off leash training if your dog has successfully undergone basic and advanced obedience training.

Once you have undergone the off-leash training program with our expert trainers here at the Mahopac Wolfen 1 location, you will enjoy having greater control of your dog even in incredibly distracting situations. The off-leash training also assists dogs with the handling of any unsuspecting separations.


In addition to our specialized training here in Mahopac for all types of puppies, even those with behavior problems, Wolfen 1 also offers a 6-week training program at the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford that teaches your puppy basic and advanced training. The training is conducted by the kennel owners and has proven to be a highly successful program for both dogs and owners.

 Programs we follow:

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

Our top-rated training programs stem from basic modification training to specialized obedience training. When week 5 is reached in the 6-week kennel training program, owners are integrated into the program to help with the transition from trainer to owner. Owners share in the program protocols in their efforts to define their role as leaders.
