Albany Dog Training

Creating Healthy, Happy Dog-to-Parent Relationships Using Reward-Based Methods

Camp Bow Wow Albany's dog training services are designed to forge a healthy bond between you and your pup. Our premier dog training services offer variety, flexibility, and can cater to your dog’s specific needs. Our goal is to help you and your pup establish clear communication and enjoy working together. We believe training is a life-long process and should be both fun and challenging.

The training we offer is based on scientifically proven methodology and aligns with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA®), the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT), the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), and other established animal welfare organizations.

Group Classes

Camp Bow Wow’s group classes include a variety of programs for all skill levels.

Other group classes include tricks, leash-walking skills, and more!

The three levels of group classes are:

  • Level I—Basic: Builds the foundation of reliable commands like sit, down, leave it, come when called, and leash walking.
  • Level II—Intermediate: Learn how to get your dog to heel by your side, go to their mat, and add distance plus distractions to all their behaviors.
  • Level III—Canine Good Citizen™ (CGC) Program Preparation and Exam: A two-part course designed to help you and your dog be the best you can be–together. Since 1989, over 1 million dogs and their owners have participated in CGC, mastering ten basic skills that instill confidence and good manners in and out of your home.

Our Certified Trainers can work with your dog while they attend Camp, spending one-on-one time with them teaching behaviors you would like to work on. We can also provide training services for you and your dog in a private setting, based on your needs.
