Naked Dog Training is . . .
. . . your dog with impeccable manners and complete off-leash control
An international dog training center located just outside of Boston
on the border of Methuen Massachusetts and Salem New Hampshire
More than just merely dog training. We think Clay, the German Shepherd in the video above, clearly demonstrates Naked Dog Training is about your dog living their best life.
Daggen is an Irish Terrier who was sent to us from Guadalajara Mexico. At home Daggen was chewing on everything he could find, jumping up on and scratching children and stealing food whenever he could find it. These were not even his worst behaviors!
When Daggen was let out into the yard (several acres fenced in with caretakers to interact with) he would either find a way to escape (and fight with any dog he met) or actually break into the house through screens if he saw someone or something he wanted! He did the same thing inside if he wanted to get out.
You don't have to have a horror story like Daggen's to have your dog benefit from Naked Dog Training. Just know if you do have a "Daggen" we can help!
Got excessive barking, jumping on people, jumping on furniture, chewing, counter surfing, too much energy or housebreaking issues?
Dog Training for Puppies
Your puppy learning to have impeccable manners and complete off-leash control is just a matter of enrollment in one of our training programs. That's the easy part.
Developing your puppy's personality, confidence, social skills, as well as molding their natural drives and instinct is what determines who your puppy is as an adult.
Our puppy training programs include coaching as early as BEFORE you get your puppy.
For puppy "parents" local to Massachusetts and New Hampshire we offer a convenient day school option. You may drop your puppy off as early as 6:30 am and pick up as late as 7:00 pm. We offer a 5 day kindergarten modules (8 weeks +) as well as 4 training modules for puppies 16 weeks or older.
(aggression towards people or other dogs)
There are some behaviors that can sometimes be tolerated for a time, even if they get worse. Aggression is not one of them. Aggression usually escalates over time which can lead to injury, and in turn liability. Once aggression starts it doesn't go away on it's own. The time to address it is always ASAP.
While our training center is located in Methuen Massachusetts as dogs are finishing their training we do outings to the Tuscan Village in Salem New Hampshire, downtown Boston, State Street in Newburyport, Elm Street in Manchester, Bass Pro Shop in Hooksett and even the occasional outing to Plum Island.
The video below of "Titan" off-leash in New York City demonstrates why we do, what we do. In this case when Titan was trained by us he was only about 9 months old and living in New Jersey. Nevertheless when he moved to NYC six-months after being trained it was an easy transition. Obeying commands is obeying commands. It's the same whether in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey or anywhere else for that matter.
Impecable Manners + Off-Leash Control = Freedom
Naked Dog Training is about freedom. If you have complete control of your dog anywhere anytime then it also means you don't have to be controlling. That means freedom at home, in the yard and walking down the street. As Titan demonstrates in the video even if that street is in New York City.
Freedom is not just about your dog being off-leash and under control. It's also you not having to constantly repeat commands only for your dog to decide when he or she wants to obey. For your dog it's freedom from "mom and dad" sounding like Charlie Brown's teacher!
Naked Dog Training is everyone living their best life!
Service Dog Training
Among our specialties is Mobility Assist Service Dog Training and Psychiatric Service Dogs (PTSD, stress and anxiety disorders, autism, etc)
As service dogs have become a common occurrence in malls, restaurants and airports what distinguishes a dog as an actual service dog matters, as does their training.
We provide a range of service dog training, certification and consultation services. For clients wanting to purchase or adopt a dog to be used as a service dog we are happy to evaluate potential candidates. Although we do not sell service dogs we are happy to direct potential owners to reliable sources for outstanding candidates. These includes traditional service dog breeds such as the German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever to new comers such as the French Bull Dog and hyper allergenic dogs like the Lagotto Romagnolo (Italian truffle dog).
If you own a dog then everyday distractions like other dogs being walked by their owners, neighborhood children and even your own guests can sabotage your dog. That is unless he or she has training, Naked Dog Training.
We like to think this German Shepherd Jopo (formerly out-of-control) and this Monkey (still out-of-control!) are a good example of what's possible.
