We are confident that the Sundog family offers the best in ethical pet care. We strive to be not only responsible and humane with our clients, but to support local communities by providing education and resources for pet owners and families in NYC.



Sundog wants you to have the best possible relationship with your pet- one built on a foundation of trust and mutual understanding. We offer detailed, step by step instructions for house training, jumping, leash-pulling and common training problems. We also offer behavior consulting and behavior modification for anxiety, fear and reactivity.

  • ​​Private sessions: Build your relationship with your pet and teach you to train your perfect companion. Online and outdoors.

  • Day Training: Let me do the work while you work! One-on-one sessions to teach and proof new behaviors.


With the social distancing recommendations and quarantine necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been adapting our training to an online learning platform. To our surprise, we love it!


Online training allows our client dogs the opportunity to focus fully on their humans, without being distracted by exciting new people or other dogs. Your trainer gets to demonstrate the exercises in real time with their own dogs, and the real time coaching and recorded sessions means you can always revisit the exercises. 


Once a foundation is established, switching to in-person coaching while maintaining social distance is easy!
