Welcome to RufF lOve dOg traiNIng, New York’s first Certified Personal Trainer for People & Furkids with live in-person services available throughout Staten Island, nearby Brooklyn, Manhattan, NJ and the Tri State area by request and Virtual Training worldwide!

Do you have a new puppy and can use some help with potty training, crate or X-pen training, teething, jumping, chewing, barking, knocking the little ones over or biting them or you. Would you like them to learn their manners and listen to you? The sooner you begin the training, the easier it is.

Perhaps you have a new dog that has not been taught basic manners and is having accidents indoors or jumping on you and guests or mouthy or has no idea how to walk next to you and is pulling you down the street with no regard for your shoulders or well being:) Do they beg for food or not understand you need them to relax sometimes and just chill with you.

Maybe you have your dog for quite a while and realize they could benefit from learning some manners &/or basic obedience. How would you like them to act in the house or outside on a walk or at a restaurant? Does your furkid have “selective hearing” syndrome? Do they just NOT listen to you? Imagine the possibilities!

Does your furkid know the basics and you would like to take it to the next level such as off leash playtime or walks. It can be done!

Would you like your dog to be trained as an Assistance Animal or Service Animal? Or maybe you want your dog to be trained as an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) or as a Therapy Animal for yourself or your child. Dogs can be trained to work with those on the “Spectrum” or with “PTSD” or as a Companion Animal. This is all possible with the right dog and handler, patience, practice, consistency and guidance.

Is your dog timid, fearful or anxious? Are they resource guarding their food or other items, maybe even you? Are they barking excessively or aggressive with other dogs or people? Do they have “stranger danger”? Are they territorial of the house or the kids or the bed or the couch? All these behaviors can be addressed and adjusted to create a calm and peaceful environment.

Just remember, “If you don’t train them, you can’t blame them”.

Balance, the core of true happiness for us and our faithful dogs, is attainable through a well developed “customized” program that is simple to understand and easy to follow. Together we can unleash your dog’s unwanted behaviors and lOve them to a balanced life. This is the end goal.

Live Private & Group Sessions are available in the comfort of your home and outdoors via PC, Laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android, etc.
