When looking for training for your puppy it can be very difficult to decide where to go. There are so many people now running puppy classes and such an array of prices and availability.
The first thing you should always check is what qualifications and training the instructor has. You need to check how recent these qualifications are. Have they been updated in the last few years.
Dog training, like other industries changes all the time. There is no regulation whatsoever in the puppy training industry. Nobody has any obligation to undertake training to become a puppy training instructor.
Positive reward based training is, for the last 20 + years, thought to be the best way to train our dogs and pups. Anyone not using this as a basis for training has not kept up to date with changes.
Positive reward based training has also gone awry. It has been wrongly translated leading to overrun rescue centres as people re-home dogs they have no control over. Make sure the trainer you use is properly trained in this method.
A progressive training programme, set for a certain number of weeks, means you will progress the basic, vital training. Each week you will see improvement and progress in the commands you need for day to day life.
You will also be given set tasks to achieve each week. A rolling puppy training programme means you and your pup can join at any time and new pups will join weekly. It also means you will probably go over the same activities every week as new puppies join in.
Outdoor group training will teach pup self-control around other people and dogs. When you meet people on your walks you don’t want a puppy that jumps all over people and/or their dog. You want a dog that will sit quietly while you chat. Playing when the time is appropriate.
The average cost of dog training is $30 to $80 per class with most spending about $50 per hour. Dog obedience training schools cost $200 to $600 per week while boot camp kennel training runs $500 to $1,250 per week. Prices average $120 per hour to train a service dog for support, therapy, or protection purposes. Dog training can be tough. But for most people sending the dog away to be trained is not a decision they take lightly. We love our dogs, and being separated from them for several weeks can be very upsetting. And residential training does not come cheap. Go to my Profile and you can find all dog material there…
I’ll assume that you’re talking about getting assistance from a trainer. There are a number of variables – a fairly significant one being where you are located.
One of the least expensive options will be a beginners group class at a “chain” type store or shelter. You will probably pay a fee for a series of classes. It will cost a bit more to go to a dedicated training facility. It will cost a bit more again for specialized classes (agility, advanced training, dog sports, etc), or perhaps for a really well known instructor.
Private instruction/assistance is then the next step up, and it could be a big one. Private sessions could be for advanced training (say, one-on-one agility training), or behavioral consultation (you have an issue with aggression, or fear). What you pay depends almost entirely on experience, reputation, and perhaps where the trainer is if they are affiliated with a business or organization. And again, location.
But do remember – epsecially if you’re dealing with a serious behavior issue – you could have quicker success with one $80 session with a seasoned professional than 6 $20 sessions with someone inexperienced or not dedicated to the profession. Lots of people call themselves trainers when they have little to no training themselves or certification, so be careful who you take on whoever it is (group class or one-on-one). And always make sure you also agree with the trainer’s high-level methodology and beliefs about behavior modification and training.
I reckon the variation between the least expensive to most expensive in the things mentioned above would be around $10 to $400 in a North American city. Those variables!
Between $5 and $50,000+. Depends upon the dog, yourself, and what you want to dog trained for.

A typical dog training class might right a few hundred dollars for an hour or so a week for 5–6 weeks. It might help, but typically they don’t do anything there you can’t do at home. A private trainer might run in the $100 per session.
Advanced training such as agility, fly-ball, etc. typically requires facilities and help of a good trainer and/or club membership and typically a thousands. Working dogs (herding dogs, rescue dogs, police and military, drug sniffing dogs, seeing eye dogs, etc.) take massive amounts of training and typically in the tens of thousands of dollars — although most herding dog owners are probably at near professional levels in terms of their ability to train dogs and spend extreme amounts of time with them.
