As a dog owner...

Buying a puppy for your home, can lead to many years of laughter and affection. In fact, many would consider a family dog as their own child. However, like any child, most dogs require almost constant supervision. You may find yourself searching online for, ‘how to train my puppy’ or ‘how to crate training my new puppy’ and even ‘how to potty train my puppy’. Don’t worry, our Albany puppy trainers can help you!

Any responsible dog owner will do their best to keep them from harm, but what can you do when you cannot always be around to watch them all day? Just as you would with a child, you would want to teach them how to be more independent, more obedient, and most importantly, safer, when you are and aren’t home watching them.

You may not be able to ship your dog off to boarding school, but you can take them to one of the highest rated dog training companies in the nation. Albany Off Leash K9 Training helps dogs all across the nation become their best ‘good boy’, learning to leave behind bad behavior and replace it with the dog obedience training that you need from them. In no time at all, you will not have to worry about leaving them alone, or leaving them around others.

Puppy Training

Choosing our dog training programs in Albany at Off Leash K9 Training is the ideal choice as we offer the best puppy class! Some training teams will not offer this service, as they tell owners to simply wait and see if the puppy behavior clears up on its own.

When you choose our top quality puppy training class, we make sure that you are encouraging good behavior and that you will be set up to lead a better example for your new puppy.
