The Standard

Our 30 minute visit is a chance to stretch those doggy legs, head to the park for a mini adventure and give your pup plenty of time to do all their “biz” in the favorite spots. It’s a great way to break up the day and is our most popular option for regular clients.  

The Deluxe
Our 60 minute visit is for dogs that have energy to burn. Double the time and double the fun!  A lot of ground can be covered in an hour, so we highly recommend this option for large, athletic dogs or younger dogs that have endless amounts of energy. Your slippers will thank us. 
DOG WALK TRAINING
It’s Dog walking – Only Smarter 

If your dog needs more than just a standard walk, our Dog Walk Training sessions add a bit of structure to their daily walks. This is the most advanced dog walking service we offer. It is designed as a compliment to our various training programs, or may be purchased a la cart if you just want to brush up on a training routine. You have to purchase at least one private training session to utilize this service so that your family, the trainer, and your dog walker can all be on the same page. Our Dog Walk Train sessions consist of trainer specific regiments carried out by your walker. Your regular dog walker works closely with your dog trainer to ensure that all the points are reviewed during each walk. Each visit is followed by a detailed Dog Walk Training report. This service is designed to reinforce training routines and is not designed to teach new behaviors.

HOURS OF OPERATION

It's Best To Schedule These In Advance. Weekend Appointments Are Subject To An Additional $10 Charge.
WHAT DOES CPDT-KA MEAN?
Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) is the credential given by the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers. The CCPDT is a third party organization that requires actual testing for individuals to join. Unlike other dog training associations that simply have a membership fee, a person must pass an exam covering canine history, health and development, canine learning, ethics, and much more. Trainers who have earned their CPDT must also earn continuing education credits by attending or teaching seminars, participating in workshops, and other training related activities in order to renew their certification.
WHEN DO YOU OFFER TRAINING SESSIONS?
Private sessions are offered every day of the week, and we will work with you to find an appointment time. Generally, Pooch Prep and Dog Walk Trains happen on weekdays in place of a daily walk, and Private Sessions take place weekday evenings or during the day on weekends. For specific availability, drop us a pmail...er, email! info@puptopianyc.com
DOES AGE MATTER?
A dog of any age is able to learn! Puppies can start force free training as young as a few weeks old, and even a pup well into double digits can learn new behaviors.  While younger dogs tend to more readily change established behaviors, both young and old dogs can quickly pick up new tricks. Think of it this way: if a pup learns from day one that sitting is an appropriate way to greet someone, they might need a few reminders as they age, but their default will be to sit.  If a pup reaches adulthood thinking  jumping on a person gets them attention (good, or bad- it's all attention!) then that pup's default will be to jump, and training must change the ingrained jumping habit, not just teach a behavior. A 7 year old pup will have had 7 years to perfect their jumping habit, and thus often takes longer to change, but it is far from impossible!
CANCELATION AND SCHEDULE CHANGES
If you need to make any scheduling changes or cancelations, we ask that you do so at least 24 hours in advance.  This gives us the time to confirm the change and give that appointment time to another pup.  Cancelations made less than 24 hours before the scheduled time will be billed in full. Email is our preferred method for scheduling communications.  During business hours we will get back to you right away, and after hours emails are responded to first thing the next morning.  
SCHEDULING
Training consults and sessions can be scheduled for any day of the week, and we will work with your schedule as needed.  In general, our training hours are 9am to 8pm, Monday thru Friday, and 10am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday.
DOES MY DOG NEED TRAINING?
While every dog and pup parent can benefit from daily, routine learning, sometimes we all get stumped by our pup's actions. When these actions start to interfere with your routine, it is definitely time to consult a professional, certified trainer. When adding a first or second (or more!) dog into your life, it is a good time to consult a trainer to help make the transition to dog (or multi-dog) life as seamless as possible. If your dog's actions scare you, you or another person feels unsafe, or your pup is acting aggressively, immediately consult a force free trainer.
TWO HOUR WINDOW

Wiggle Room

Due to the complexity of our clients varying schedules and the unique challenges of maneuvering through NYC in all climates, we reserve a two-hour window around the time of your scheduled walk. EX: If you are scheduled for 3pm, you can expect your walker will arrive sometime between 2pm and 4pm. This window helps us manage constantly varying schedules, bad weather, toweling dogs off after rainy or snowy days, varying travel times between clients, and of course elevators that sometimes take forever to come for what ever reason. If you have a puppy, we adhere to 1 hour window till they are older and more developed - This will be assessed during the initial consultation and as your puppy progresses we can reevaluate as needed.  
PAYMENT

Auto-Payments are where it's at!

We accept all major credit cards- Once you set up an account you are automatically invoiced and charged for services rendered at the end of each week. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. You account may be placed on hold and services suspended if your account becomes past due. All sitting and dog training services are charged in advance

ESTABLISHING A REGULAR SCHEDULE

HELP US PLAN

Establishing a regular schedule for your dog is highly recommended. This helps us allocate our walkers and ensures that you receive your desired walking window. Regular schedules also help us carefully plan ensuring each of our clients get the most out of every visit from our walkers. Because of the nature of our service and our focus on individual care, we ask that you help us plan ahead. We are not able to take on occasional, or once off clients and ask that you set up weekly schedule with a minimum of 3 visits per week. If your schedule requires less than 3 visits per week - we may not be able to promise a specific time.
