Have a Question? Contact Us

Deciding where to train your dog? With so many options out there, how are you supposed to know which one is the best? The answer is obvious: It’s Wolfen1 in Thomaston. Wolfen1 was designed by expert dog trainer, Sharron Lang. Lang has been passionate about dogs her whole life and created the program out of a desire to help bridge the gap of communication between dogs and their owners. She guides all of our instructors with the utmost care. That way, no matter what your problem is, we’ll have it fixed in no time.

We’ve been in the business long enough to know that every dog and every person is completely different. What works for one dog or one owner, very well may not work for another. That’s why wach of the programs we offer are completely adaptable and versatile.

“Thank you Sharron Lang of Wolfen1 Dog Training for getting us started! Our dogs have gained so much confidence in new situations!”

Dog Training Programs We Offer In Thomaston


Enjoy the most energetic years of your dog’s life but always remember to start training early. If you wait too long, then your puppy may learn improper behavior. Before you know it, you may have a problem on your hands. You want them to start learning from you as soon as possible!

Puppy training skillsets we follow:

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

Our puppy training services in Thomaston will help you start off on the right foot with your new companion.


Basic Dog Obedience Training

This program will aim to teach your dog basic commands. When we teach them the basic commands, your dog will begin to trust and have more respect for you. We’ll aso begin to prepare them to learn more advanced ones. And of course, we’ll stimulate your pet enough to make sure that they’ll sleep like a log that night!

Basic Commands: 

  • Sit down
  • Come
  • Shake
  • Stay

This program is specifically designed for mature dogs. But if your dog is younger, then don’t let that deter you! We also offer helpful classes for our Thomaston clients that need assistance with training.


Advanced Dog Obedience Training

Never fight for your dog’s attention again with this class! Come down to our studio in Thomaston, CT and we will also will expand on a basic training level to give your dog more respect for you. We’ll teach your dog to ignore distractions and always make you the priority.

Advanced Commands: 

  • Stop
  • Back Up
  • Give
  • Speak

Our business is entirely centered on helping dogs reconnect with their owners. So even if your dog already has some behavior issues, we can still help you. When you are done, we will make sure you and your dog are best friends again.

There could be many reasons why your dog is acting out. Common causes of bad behavior include lack of exercise, socialization, or correct discipline.

Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

  • Agression
  • Fearfulness
  • Guarding
  • Seperation Anxiety

When you call a trainer at us at Wolfen1 in Thomaston you’ll be taking control of the situation. Right away, you’ll be on the right track to fixing it. We’ll work with you every step of the way to  make sure your dog learns what behaviors are okay and which are not.


In theory, every dog has the potential to be a certified therapy dog. But in practice, temperament and personality will play a very large role. For instance, dogs that have behavior problems or are unable to sit still are unlikely to be certified.

In order to become certified, a dog must be friendly, gentle, and sociable. It also must be comfortable in new environments and meeting new people. Call us to today to see if your dog could provide much-needed companionship for those at nursing homes, hospitals, or schools.

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  

Just remember that therapy dogs are not service dogs. Therapy dogs in constant contact with new people. As a result, therapy dogs must have a good level of social skills, health, and comfort with new places.  Service dogs, by contrast, stay with one owner and assist them individually.

Dog off leash training

Off Leash Dog Training


Adventurous? Love the great outdoors? Bring your dog with you! If you like to hike, fish, or run, then enroll in an off leash training session. That way, you can bring your dog with you next time.

In order to successfully complete the course, you and your dog must already be familiar with coordinating high-degree orders. Consequently, off-leash training should only be considered once your dog has mastered more basic and advanced training.

It may be hard work, but when your dog learns to respond to off-leash training, the benefits are massive. Come down to our training sessions in Thomaston to develop peace of mind, a sense of confidence, and a strengthened relationship with your animal. When your dog learns to walk without a leash, you’ll have more freedom to move and go as you please without worrying about your pet. You’ll be able to have control over your them in even dangerous or distracting situations.


Maybe your dog already has behavior issues and you’re struggling to find a trainer who will accept them. Or maybe you just don’t have time for a weekly class. School, family, and other life commitments can occasionally get in the way. At Wolfen1, however, you needn’t worry about either situation!

One of our most popular programs is a six week training program at the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford. It’s perfect if you need to go away for a long vacation or visit some relatives. While you are away, your dog will also be personally attended to, fed, and properly socialized. You can relax while we extensively train them.

 Programs we follow:

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

During these training sessions, dogs will learn to look to their owner for guidance and accept commands. The owner will join at around week five and the dog will adjust from trainer to owner. During this time, owners will also learn the program and make adjustments to their own techniques.
