Dog Training Programs We Offer In Middlebury, CT


We are thrilled that you have added a furry new family member to your house, and to start them off on the right path training them early proves to be helpful time after time. First time puppy owners tend to wait too long to implement basic commands, though it is never too early to start!

Puppy training skills we train by:

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

Our puppy training services in Middlebury help begin your journey with your new family member on a positive note.


Basic Dog Obedience Training

To begin your dogs training skills we start off with a positive reward method that proves to be successful with basic introductory training skills. This training will help prepare your dog, both mentally and physically, for advanced training.

Basic Commands: 

  • Sit down
  • Come
  • Shake
  • Stay

This type of training is geared towards dogs a bit more mature than puppies, which is why we offer puppy training programs at our Middlebury location to provide the correct assistance for dogs at any age.


Advanced Dog Obedience Training

By enrolling your dog in our advanced obedience training, they will learn techniques to cut out the typical disturbances of people, cars, as well as other animals in able for them to keep their attention on you. We go further with this training, enhancing their skills learned in the previous basic course.

Advanced Commands: 

  • Stop
  • Back Up
  • Give
  • Speak

In this course level we continue their growth from the basics to more skilled commands and training. Our Middlebury trainers are friendly and qualified and all have the same goal of helping your dog understand advanced commands.


We understand that some dogs practice bad habits, whether they learned them through neglect or a lack of training, but our trainers are here to reverse any misbehaviour they may have picked up. Our location in Middlebury, CT has staff members waiting to help train your dog to be obedient and loving.

Little to no exercise, limited socialization with other dogs or people, and lacking discipline are all factors that can stunt your dog’s skills and cause bad behavior.

Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

  • Agression
  • Fearfulness
  • Guarding
  • Seperation Anxiety

Our trainers in Middlebury are ready to help you and your dog gain the skills and training that they might be lacking. We teach them right from wrong, allowing for growth and ultimately letting you, their owner, be treated with respect.


Regardless of a dog’s age, breed, or size, they have the ability to become a certified therapy dog, and we have the proper training to get them to this level. Therapy dogs must provide love, comfort, and support for their owners and allow their personality to shine.

Not all dogs are made out to become a therapy dog. Those with behavioral issues and lack the understanding of basic commands are not fit for the position. Therapy dogs must be calm, friendly, and gentle with others regardless of their environment.

Therapy dogs 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 and service dogs are commonly confused with each other, the difference is their interactions with people. Service dogs provide support for their sole owner, while therapy dogs are in constant contact with multiple people in different locations. They must be healthy, obedient, and enjoy love and affection.

Dog off leash training

Off Leash Dog Training


Active dog owners will benefit from enrolling their dogs in our off leash training course. The skills they learn in this training will be helpful during any public activity like hiking or running.

Our Middlebury trainers suggest off leash training only begin once basic and advanced obedience skills are mastered. We need your dog to readily respond to commands at an even more advanced level in order to learn any off leash skills.

Our Middlebury trainers are capable of getting your dog to participate in off leash training, allowing them more freedom, yet you more control no matter who or what surrounds them. Though we hope there is never an instance that separates you from your dog, we understand things happen and this may occur, by giving them the proper training both you and your dog can remain calm in these situations.


Our Wolfen1 trainers are here to make your puppy or dogs training as easy for you as possible and take away the inconvenience it may cause.

We offer a program that starts with a minimum of 6 weeks training, held in our Middlebury kennel where we will thoroughly train your dog. Our basic and advanced skill sets will be taught.

 Programs we adhere to:

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

Dogs undergo behavior and obedience training which allows us to reinforce good behaviors. Typically around week 5 we bring in owners to the program to help adjust the dogs obedience from trainer to owner. By attending courses with your dog you will learn and adjust to our training techniques.
