Our North Jersey Puppy Training Program

Congrats on your new lifelong pal! It is very important to start housebreaking and training your puppy from the very first day they enter your home. The good habits you make with your puppy will last all of your dog’s life and your North Jersey Dog trainer is ready to help you start off on the right paw.

Prevention, not correction with Meadowlands Dog Training!

The most critical period of your puppy’s life is in the 8 to 16 week period and it is essential that you introduce them to certain experiences during this time. This is how you can prevent behavior problems from beginning in the first place!

Why In-home puppy training?

There are a lot of popular in-store puppy training programs out there, taught by novice dog trainers, but North Jersey dog trainers give you the same, high quality professional training they provide for all of their clients. It is important to begin your puppy training with an in-home consultation so that the trainer can assess all of the risks and conditions your home provides your dog. After this first visit to your home, your trainer will have a solid training program drawn up for you!

There are a lot of various puppy training methods that get spread around that can unfortunately create behavior issue later on in your dog’s life. Your trainer will help lay down a strong and proven foundation of learning and discipline for your puppy and help to clear up any common misconceptions about puppy training that you may have encountered. This ensures that you and your puppy can be off to a great start!

Our in-home, customizable program covers the following:

  • Housebreaking
  • Crate training
  • Nipping
  • Chewing
  • Basic commands
  • Recall
  • Distraction training
  • Jumping
  • Leash walking
  • and more!

What about puppy classes?

Puppy classes can teach you basic obedience and housebreaking strategies, but they do not take into account the whole picture of your puppy’s life nor the fact that no puppy is the same. It is very important that your puppy’s training takes into account everything about your puppy, especially their environment. This is why in-home training is important.
