Dog Training Programs We Offer In North Salem


New puppy owners often wait too long to start training their dogs and introduce basic commands. You should capitalize on it because they have natural and innate qualities to follow a leader. The most important part of raising the newest member of your family is to start training the dog as soon as possible in order to establish yourself as someone to be respected and listened to.

Puppy training skill sets we follow:

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

Start off your North Salem pup on the right foot by utilizing our puppy training services whenever you can.


Basic Dog Obedience Training

Your dog will be stimulated both mentally and physically through our basic dog obedience training program. Your dog will learn basic, introductory training skills based on a positive reward system, and by using this program they will be prepared for more advanced training programs we offer.

Basic Commands:

  • Sit down
  • Come
  • Shake
  • Stay

This service is not meant for puppies, however, but is the first step in mature and developed dogs to become loyal companions. We do, however, offer a lot of puppy training courses for them to take on so they can be more prepared for a class like this in the future.


Advanced Dog Obedience Training

Through this advanced obedience program, we expand on the basic training your dog had in order to help them ignore the distractions of everyday life like people, cars and animals to focus solely on their owner. The dog will gradually gain more respect for its owner and recognize them as a true leader.

Advanced Commands: 

  • Stop
  • Back Up
  • Give
  • Speak

This training program expands on the basic level of dog obedience training.  By providing your dog with advanced training in North Salem, they’ll be able to learn more commands while also ignoring distractions such as people, cars, animals and focus solely on their owner.


Dogs can easily learn bad behavior, either through neglect or resistance to training. You are luckily able to reverse the type of mindset your dog may have through our training program, conveniently located in the Greater Danbury, CT area.

Your dog’s behavior could be fixed through proper exercise, more socialization, or lessening its anxiety. It also may not have the correct discipline. Either way, we know that you are bringing your dog here for a reason, and we’re here to help.

Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

  • Agression
  • Fearfulness
  • Guarding
  • Seperation Anxiety

Through these training sessions in the Greater Danbury area, you will be able to teach your dogs what is acceptable behavior and what is not. You will be able to take control of the situation and get a good start in correcting your dog’s behavior through one-on-one training sessions.


Therapy dogs can provide a relaxing and fun way to help people calm down and get their mind off of the stresses of life. They provide much-needed companionship for people in retirement homes, nursing homes, schools and hospitals. It doesn’t matter what breed, age or size the dog is in order to become a therapy dog. However, before they go through the training it’s important to know what type of temperament and personality the dog has.


Not every North Salem dog is going to make the cut, and that’s okay. Dogs who have problems sitting still and remaining calm or dogs with behavioral issues are less likely to make the cut. Dogs with behavior problems or the inability to sit still and remain calm, are less likely to make the cut. A therapy dog must be friendly, gentle, comfortable around new people and remain calm in multiple environments.

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 should not be confused with service dogs, because they do not stay with one individual owner and assist them directly. Therapy dogs need to have good social skills, good health and be comfortable with being touched because they will be constantly in contact with new people.

Dog off leash training

Off Leash Dog Training


Off leash training can be beneficial for dog owners who spend a lot of time on large properties or bring their dogs on more adventurous situations like hiking and running.


You should only consider off leash training after your dog completes basic and advanced obedience training, because your dog will need to be familiar with obeying your commands at a high degree in order to be properly taught to walk off leash.


You will have more control of your companion even in distracting situations when you engage in off leash training in North Salem. They will remain calm and obedient even in unforeseen situations that separate you from your dog, so you will have more peace of mind in the future.


It may be inconvenient for some dog owners to find time to train their new puppy or dog. Some dog trainers also try not to deal with dogs who have behavioral problems. Luckily, that is not the case at Wolfen1.


At our Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford, we’ll extensively train your dog. Through our minimum six week training program, we will personally attend to your dog for basic or advanced obedience training at the kennel

 Programs we follow:

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

Dogs that go through behavior modification training will also undergo obedience training. At week 5, owners are integrated into the training program so they can reinforce good behavior and look to their owner for guidance. Once the transition is made from trainer to owner, the owner will then learn the program and make key adjustments to establish themselves as the leader.
