About Us

Your dog is a loved member of your family so when you are looking for a trainer to guide you, you're looking for not just help, but also compassion and understanding.

At Big City Dogs our clients and their dogs are special... so special they become members of our Big City Dogs family!

City dogs have special needs with special training requirements. Although the natural habitat of canines is not the city, dogs are adaptable and when shown how to live happily within a city environment, they become wonderful family partners and companions.

City Dogs are unique in that they have to deal with so much variety and an assault each day on the canine senses of sight, sound and smell.

A City Dog has to

  • Adapt to the urban forest, the concrete jungle and the wild life of the city.
  • Be polite and a good citizen around people of many different races, color and dress.
  • Be able to deal with the unexpected, and to be patient and calm under some potentially stressful situations
  • Walk nicely in a crowd (even when crowded) and the park, among other dogs.
  • Know where to go to the bathroom.
  • Know to be quiet among people and in the home unless there is a warning to give.
  • Be a good citizen around the home whether it is an apartment or house.
  • Respect belongings of family members.
  • Be safe by being obedient, especially to come when called, sit and stay when asked. Even when distractions are strong.
