It’s no secret: We can’t get enough of this beautiful summer weather!

From happy hours on the patio with friends and family to early morning farmers markets and more, there’s so much to do during the summertime in Western New York every year. What’s even better? So many bars, restaurants, and markets throughout Buffalo also allow you to bring your dog along, too!

The only catch— your pup(s) need to be on their best behavior, of course. That’s where The Art of Dog comes in.

Private Training for You and Your Dog

To help your pup learn and stay on their best behavior at each and every event this season and beyond, The Art of Dog is here to help. 

Serving dog owners throughout the greater Western New York area, The Art of Dog was founded by local dog owner Dave Putman, who began his journey when he adopted his goofy little Pit bull, Roland, from the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter. 

Going through private obedience lessons with Roland sparked Dave’s passion for educating owners and dogs alike— a passion that continues to shine through each and every training program at The Art of Dog today.

So whether you’re a first-time dog mom or have been a proud parent to your four-legged best friend(s) for years now, any dog can benefit from The Art of Dog’s training classes and more. The Board and Train program specifically takes the stress off of you while your dog goes through the tougher beginning stages of training.

Board and Train: What’s Included

If you’re looking for faster results with less stress, this class may be for you. In The Art of Dog’s Board and Train program, your dog will learn and live directly with a professional, receiving hours upon hours of personalized training each day, where every decision is guided and reinforced accordingly. 

The board and train program covers all dog obedience on and off leash, including: 

  • Heel (on and off leash)
  • Sit
  • Sit and Stay
  • Down and Stay
  • Place
  • Come When Called
  • All House Manners (no jumping, quiet on command, etc.)
  • Socialization with other people and dogs
  • And more!

This program is also highly customizable to fit your goals and your dog’s unique needs. As this live-in program allows the trainers to bond with your dog on a deeper level than a traditional class structure, they’ll be able to find the work your dog enjoys to perform— from competitive obedience to goofy tricks and everything in between. 

Whatever you’d like your dog to learn, The Art of Dog can teach it! 

Supporting Your Dog Post-Training

Once your dog is back home with you and your family, the training isn’t quite over yet! It’s important to keep up and reinforce everything your dog has learned. ]

Lucky for you, The Art of Dog offers more support after the Board and Train program than any other dog trainers in the area, making the transition back to regular life a walk in the park. (See what we did there?)

You’ll receive follow up lessons and phone access to the trainers for any questions or concerns you may have, plus a private web page with video tutorials of all of the commands being performed, different exercises for practice, and more.
