Dog Training

Puppies and adult dogs can benefit greatly from dog training at Wheeling Animal Hospital. Many owners struggle with teaching their dog good behaviors and basic commands, like sit, stay and heel, and preventing unwanted behaviors, like begging for table scraps and laying on the furniture. Our practice offers private lessons and basic obedience training services so that you and your dog can learn and grow together.

Dog Training Basic Obedience Class - $160.00

Designed for dogs over four months old (or puppies over 30 pounds), this course emphasizes marker training, operant conditioning, and fundamental obedience skills such as recall, loose leash walking, sit, down, stay, go to your bed, and more. Canine body language, greetings, and personalized training strategies based on individual personality types are also covered, along with tips for achieving AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification.

Basic Obedience Classes are run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays after 5pm and Saturday mornings. Classes are by appointment only.

Book your spot today as space is limited. Spaces are booked on a first come first serve basis.

Private Lessons:

Our Trainer Casey offers private lessons as well for a more personalized approach and training regimen. Private lessons are perfect for the following:

  • Dog reactive dogs
  • 1 on 1 lesson plans
  • Advanced obedience training
  • Special training concerns

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

Wheeling Animal Hospital utilizes rewards-based dog training. This type of training is great for all ages, breeds and sizes of dogs because it rewards your dog every time he or she does something correctly. For example, if you tell your dog to sit and he or she sits, you then mark the behavior and reward your pup with praise and affection and/or give them a treat, which reinforces the behavior and helps with long-term consistency. This type of training can help with correcting unwanted behaviors and instilling obedience so that you can reach your training goals.
