Living in Albuquerque and ready to get your dog started in training?

You came to the right place.

We offer a variety of different dog training options for both puppies and adult dogs.

We strive to bring out the best in your dog. Every dog has the potential to be a well-behaved, skilled and obedient companion. Let us help you to turn your dog into the best version of himself! You will be amazed at how much he can learn.
Each dog brings talents with him that are just waiting to be discovered. We can not only teach your dog general obedience, but a variety of other skills – from trick training over dog agility to finding hidden people (man trailing)!

Many clients start with us pursuing basic obedience and stay long after their dog has mastered his basic skills trying out a variety of other dog activities. Keeping your dog enrolled in classes and training programs will help him exercise and burn his energy in a productive way. Continuing training also will remind your dog whop is the most important and fun person around: You!


Our Dog Trainer

Regardless of the training you choose, know that your dog is in the best hands. Our trainer Steffi has not only trained countless dogs in Albuquerque and around New Mexico, but also has taught hundreds of clients remotely through online dog training classes, as well as traveled to teach seminars as far away as Germany.

Steffi not only trains clients’ dogs, but continually strives to improve her own training skills. She has three dogs of her own that have reached very high levels of training. She has experimented with training her own dogs in conceptual training such as counting and imitation and succeeded to teach her Border Collie to count up to 4.

Steffi pursues advanced clicker training as well as competitive agility. Our trainer believes that in order to be the best possible teacher, one must never stop learning!

Our Training Approach

Our approach to training is positive and reward-based. We do not promote the use of punishment and fear-based training methods, including tools designed to cause discomfort to the dog such as prong, choke or electric collars. Instead of utilizing intimidation, we strive to build a team between dog and handler and develop effective communication between them.

We teach every owner how to best communicate with his dog by understanding how dogs learn and what drives their behavior. Many common behavior issues (whether in puppies or adult dogs) can be solved by changing where the dog finds reinforcement for his behavior (for more information, read The #1 Question to Ask when your Dog is Misbehaving).

We take a holistic approach to dog training and behavior modification. Behaviors rarely occur in isolation, and getting to know the dog, his environment and family is an important aspect of designing a training program suited to him.

You will not find our dog trainer using a cookie cutter approach to providing your dog’s training needs. Instead, every dog and owner are seen as the individuals they are.

For us the joy of dog training and helping owners lies in providing them with the solutions that work best for them.

You can expect assistance and guidance in all aspects of dog ownership – from choosing the right feeding schedule for your puppy or the best dog food for food allergies, over help in determining his grooming needs to developing an exercise plan to keep him fit and healthy. Our program does not stop when we gave you training advice. We like to support you in all aspects of living with your dog to help you and him live together as joyfully as possible.

Best Puppy Training In Albuquerque

Did your puppy recently join your family? Are you overwhelmed by all the things you want and need to teach him – from potty training over walking well on leash to greeting strangers politely and being friendly with other dogs?

It is much easier to train a little 2 month old puppy than to wait until he is physically strong and mentally confident at 10 months. The earlier clients come to me with their puppies, the quicker the dog usually improves. This has a simple reason: The less time the dog has to rehearse unwanted behaviors the better.

It is much easier to train a puppy to behave well from the start than to try and undo months of bad behavior that has been ingrained. Adolescent dogs that misbehave have had plenty of time to practice their bad manners.
If you have a puppy, start training him as soon as possible.

Private Dog Training In Albuquerque

Do you have an adult dog that needs to brush up his obedience skills and manners? Is your dog reactive or fearful? Do you want to get him started in a new activity without having to adhere to class schedules or wait your turn in group classes?
Private sessions are a convenient option for training your dog as quickly as possible. We can usually schedule a lesson within 72hrs from the time you call us. We know that a dog that misbehaves is not a matter that can wait too long!
The sooner we get started the better. In dog training it is definitely advisable to hit the ground running. Most owners start out with weekly or twice-weekly private sessions that then taper off over time as the dog improves and needs less and less intensive training.

Private sessions are an investment not only into your dog right now, but into a joyful future life with him.
To make this training as convenient as possible for you our trainer will travel to your house for the training. As the dog progresses, he might also train at other locations, such as public places in Albuquerque to practice his social skills (Albuquerque Dog Training Destinations).

Private training is not just about solving problems however. Many clients choose to pursue private lessons as a regularly scheduled activity with their dog. We can train your dog in many different skills. Dogs are very capable learners and the sky is the limit when thinking about new tricks or behaviors to teach them.

Albuquerque Dog Day Training

If your schedule is busy and your dog needs consistent training, this option will be the quickest and easiest solution. Preferred by clients in demanding jobs as well as families with children, our trainer will come to your house and train your dog for you.

If your dog has a behavioral issue that needs a specific solution and is prone to handler-errors, having our dog trainer take over the training completely can also be the best way to go.

It is possible to continue day training as an on-going training program if you would like to keep your dog physically exercised and mentally challenged. Some owners choose to have our trainer visit their dog once or twice a week to continue teaching him new skills or keep his obedience and social behavior up. 

If you have a busy life with no time for weekly dog training maintenance, this is the option for you.
