The cost of dog obedience training varies; group classes are less expensive than private sessions with professional trainers. Pet owners should ask about what kinds of services are included in the cost before spending money. Local community centers, dog daycare operations, and some pet stores offer group classes that may range from $50 to $125 for four to eight weeks of one-hour sessions. Classes for puppies might cost less than those for adult dogs.
Private classes with a professional trainer range from $30 to $100 per hour, costing about $240 to $600 for six sessions, according to CostHelper. There are also obedience board kennel schools that cost between $1,000 and $2,500. The dog receives one-on-one training for several hours for two to four weeks of training and boarding.
You might also have to pay for training aids, dog treats, noisemakers and leashes to train the dog, which costs less than $50. Dogs with behavioral problems could cost more than $100 an hour.
In conclusion, people who make time to teach their dogs lead more fulfilling lives with their canine companions. A healthy balance of learning manners, encouraging sociability and providing your pet with the right kind of outlets will ensure the success. Having a well-behaved and trained animal is a joy to both you and your pet!
