Big Apple Dog School specializes in teaching the behaviors crucial to the well-being of the urban dog.

In addition to knowing the basics of Sit, Down, Stay and Come, the city dog should, at the very least:

  • Walk on leash without pulling
  • Be perfectly housebroken
  • Greet other dogs with neither fear nor aggression
  • Meet the myriad challenges presented by New York’s streets (loud and sudden noises, milling crowds, swooshing skateboards, curious children and odd adults, etc.) in a relaxed and fearless manner

When left alone, city dogs should be able to enjoy their downtime without excessive barking or rampant destruction. Throw in a few tricks, and you’ve got the kind of dog you can take anywhere — a happy, well-adjusted companion ready to experience all the city has to offer.
