    Dog Training Programs We Offer In New Milford, CT


    As a new puppy parent, you may already know that the most important part of raising a dog is to start training very early. New puppy owners delay progress by starting training too late. As the puppy becomes older, lack of training can prevent your dog from learning basic commands. Learning these basics early contributes to the puppy’s natural inclination to look to you as their leader.

    Puppy training skillsets we follow:

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

    You can get a head start to a great relationship with your new family member! Our puppy training services in New Milford, CT can help!


    Basic Dog Obedience Training

    Our methods use a positive reward to give your dog basic introductory training. Our programs will stimulate your dogs’ body and mind. By supplying this basic training, your dog will be fully prepared for learning advanced commands at a later time.

    Basic Commands: 

    • Sit down
    • Come
    • Shake
    • Stay

    Although our basic training is meant for more mature dogs, we can offer extensive puppy training that are designed specifically for your young puppy!


    Advanced Dog Obedience Training

    The advanced obedience training we provide at Wolfen1 of New Milford, CT will instill a confidence in your dog, and provide him with the skills to not pay mind to the distractions he is bombarded with in daily life.

    Dogs can quickly pick up bad behaviors. This can easily happen through lack of training, or a stubborn resistance to instruction. At Wolfen1 of New Milford, we make learning fun for you dog. Positive reinforcement makes it so your pup is excited to learn.

    Inappropriate behavior can quickly develop. Sometimes these behavioral issues come from lack of exercise, lack of socialization, or development of fear or anxiety.

    Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

    • Agression
    • Fearfulness
    • Guarding
    • Seperation Anxiety

    As a caring dog owner, you need to address these issues at the first sign of them. By seeking a dog trainer in New Milford, you are already setting you and your dog up for success. We offer one- on-one training sessions with our experts at Wolfen1. These experts will be very clear to let your dog know which behaviors unacceptable, and which behaviors we are would like to encourage!


    Therapy dogs are a vital part of society. They provide comfort and companionship to schools, hospitals, nursing homes, funeral services, and even at scenes of tragic events. Any type, size, breed, or age of dog can become a certified therapy dog as long as they have the correct temperament and personality.

    Dogs who have behavioral issues are not likely to pass. It is very important therapy dogs are able to be still and calm. A therapy dog must have a pleasant and friendly disposition, be comfortable in new, sometimes stressful environments, and be calm around new people.

    In order 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 different from service dogs. Therapy dogs help various people, and do not stay with a single owner. A service dog has one owner, and only helps that one person. Therapy dogs are frequently around new people and in new environments. They must have perfect social skills and be comfortable with being touched.

    Dog off leash training

    Off Leash Dog Training


    Off-leash training is absolutely critical especially for those adventurous dog owners who find themselves in an active lifestyle. If you enjoy hiking, running or being in large properties, off- leash training is a must.

    Once your pup has completed basic and advanced obedience training programs, you may begin off-leash training. Your dog must be very familiar with their basic commands and at an advanced level. This is crucial for safety purposes before your dog is met with the challenge of walking off-leash.

    By experiencing off-leash training sessions in New Milford, CT, you will begin to have complete control over your pup. This is especially important in particularly distracting scenarios. If there is a situation where you become separated from your pet, you will know how to get them to return safely to you!
