Depending on what your pup needs, we provide different classes and levels of dog training in NJ. From basic command training to advanced behavior modification, we can help you achieve your training goals.
Your satisfaction is our goal, so we only use scientifically-backed and tested techniques. Our methods are proven to be safe, effective, and fun for your pet.
Our dog trainers in New Jersey are professional, passionate, and highly-skilled. If you have any questions or concerns, simply approach one of our trainers and they’ll be more than happy to help.
Our trainers will work with you to get to the root cause of your dog’s behavior. First, we will discuss your objectives, whether it’s to bond better with your dog or correct unwanted behavior. We will also help you develop an action plan to address your dog’s fear, anxiety, and other concerns.
Does your dog act out at home or in public? Our obedience program trains your dog to be more disciplined and well-behaved without losing their unique personality. Dogs act out for different reasons. It's your duty to find out why, and create a unique program to correct any behavior issues.
For younger pups who need a little boost, our skills development program will help them grow into healthy, well-adjusted dogs. This involves socializing with other dogs and learning basic skills.
We understand that some furry friends might not be ready for classes with other canines. In these cases, one-on-one sessions could be better for their development. Once they are ready, we can incorporate them into our group classes.
Super friendly staff who are very attentive and make us feel so comfortable leaving our dog there!Read More Reviews »
I’ve been bringing my beagle, George, to Puppy University since May 2020. I work in New Jersey and live in New York, but even on my days off I will travel to NJ to bring George to Puppy University. I have tried daycares near where I live for days that I’m not in NJ and they were awful. This place cares about all the dogs and treats them like their own. George is always so happy when he gets to daycare and is nice and tired when I pick him up. The best part of this place is that they don’t just like put the dogs in a pen and leave them. The staff members engage with them all day! We love Puppy University so much! Also a note on the training: George had his training sessions here as a puppy. When anyone heard I was getting a beagle, they told me how terrible beagles are and that they are so difficult to train. George is so obedient and listens to all of his commands thanks to the trainers at Puppy University.Read More Reviews »
My little pup, Mango, has been going to Puppy U since November 2021 and I have to say that this place is literally the best doggy day care in all of Hudson County. The facility itself is clean, bright, and welcoming, the owners and all staff members are friendly, professional and super sweet to my little Mango. They have great seasonal activities for the pups, excellent grooming services, and some of the staff members offer boarding /dogsitting. Most importantly, I know my pup is in good hands and that he always comes home happy and tired. Thank you Puppy University for everything that you do. Mango and I love you guys! ❤🐶🤗Read More Reviews »

I love seeing my dog Kyro happy and excited coming to this place. Every time I would take him, he knows where to go. Run to the front door and wait to go in. I feel secure leaving him for half of the day knowing that he's being taken care of nice people. All of them are so very nice, friendly and professional!! Keep it up!!!Read More Reviews »
Puppy University has been so helpful in training my puppy. As a first time pet owner, they take the time to teach you and go step by step on what is needed to help your pooch be trained. Day care services are awesome, my puppy comes home tired and knocked out. 🐕🐶🐾Read More Reviews »
Dog training classes start at $400 for our 4-week Group Classes. Individual or specialized training starts at $195 per hour-long session.
A Puppy should be at least 10 weeks old to start training. Your pup is also required to have the proper DHPP vaccinations (Distemper, Adenovirus [hepatitis], Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, and Rabies).
If your puppy is between 10 and 14 weeks of age, the rabies vaccination is not required.
The sooner the better! With our experience a puppy who starts training at 10 weeks learns faster and progresses through each level a lot quicker.
It all depends on how far you want to go with your pup, we offer training from puppy level to all the way up to advanced CGC (Canine Good Citizenship) with each course (3) being 6 weeks long, an hour per week.
