We love SFTD! Our little pup has taken multiple classes and trainings (and playtimes!) here, and she is so much better and smarter and happier for it. All of the trainers are caring, knowledgable, great people, and the facility itself is very nice too. We've also done virtual (online) webinars and classes, and we were super pleasantly surprised how effective they were. SFTD is a gem.

Excellent training, and friendly customer service! I had an online account issue that was resolved, and I’m more than pleased with their expertise! I’d recommend their online courses.

Kate Senisi is EXCELLENT. I adopted an older dog that needed training due to previous owner’s abuse and separation anxiety. Kate gave me all the resources I needed to have a good relationship with my dog and give him more confidence about being alone. There is so much wrong information out there about dog training, and I am BLESSED I found Kate and she was able to open my eyes to positive reinforcement and dog training that actually works. My dog has become a very sociable, relaxed, obedient, friendly, and above all, a happy dog. School for the dogs is worth every penny.

Such a great experience. Our little pup had an amazing puppy playtime and made new friends. We also bought some of their treats that worked amazingly with our pup. We will be back!

Purchased item online on a Thursday. Was told Monday it would be shipped the following day. Tuesday came around and it was refunded since they "sold it over the weekend". If they sold it online why sell the item in stores? Awful customer service and a waste of time. Their store is not recommended.

This is a wonderful place to bring your dog for puppy kindergarten, training, or just playtime! My dog Tilly Tatum and I had a great experience here, and I continue to be grateful to Annie and everyone at SFTD for their expert guidance, welcoming atmosphere, and patience with dogs and their humans, even now that I've left NYC. Tilly is a well trained and calm city dog, and I have to credit SFTD. Thank you!!

We enrolled our puppy mini aussie in puppy kindergarten here and could not be happier with their training! Anna is a great trainer, so good with our pup and makes training easy and fun! The other staff are always very helpful when we have questions about what to buy, how to solve certain behavior questions, etc. They clearly all have a passion for dogs and know what they’re talking about.

I took both of my dogs to sidewalk psychos class and thoroughly enjoyed it! Both dogs and humans gained a lot of knowledge. Everyone at the school for the dogs is very kind, caring, and focused on keeping all dogs safe at all times! I'll be signing up for more classes!

Really great training facility, trainers and play time for dogs. This place is great for humans who are very committed to and serious about training with their dogs.

Wholeheartedly recommend to any dog owner in the area. We joined the SFTD community shortly after we got our rescue puppy and they've been invaluable in helping us get through it all. Whilst dog training is the main draw, SFTD offers a lot more. It's a business geared around helping local dogs have happy and settled owners. :) Their services include: - Dog training - Group classes - Dog sitting - Dog merchandise - Daily play groups ("school yard") Of all their services, we use School Yard the most - it's a safe and enriching way for your dog to get their daily exercise. Staff are fantastic and deeply experienced, many having backgrounds in behavioral psychology and training other types of animals (dolphins, etc). We count many of them as very good friends. Don't think about it, contact them already!

My dog Mu and I are lucky to live six blocks away. If we didn't, proximity to School For The Dogs would be, no exaggeration, reason to move. We go almost every day for School Yard, their trainer-supervised dog park where the dogs' interactions are seen as teaching moments and the humans pay attention and care. Some days we do Day School, though I work from home and don't need daycare, because I know every minute with SFTD trainers is quality time for Mu--and support for me as I learn to solve dog problems, teach new behaviors, understand dog language, and generally be a better dog person. Mu is shy, but he LOVES going to School! The super-positive training ethos, helpful, welcoming community, down-to-earth vibe, and sense of humor about it all are so much more than I'd hoped for when I first Googled "dog trainers." Lord knows the East Village didn't need another restaurant or bar, it needed School For The Dogs. I wish every neighborhood had one. ps--The store, along with the staff's expert advice on (and good taste in) gear, is worth checking out, too.

I recommend Annie and her staff highly enough! Annie made a house visit to advise us on the best way to help our 9-week old Basenji puppy adjust to his new home. After 3 sleepless nights of crying and accidents, Annie provided invaluable tips and advice which made a world of difference immediately. After making a few small, but important changes, our puppy slept through the entire night without a whimper. It was an amazing transformation! Our puppy is now well adjusted and happy in his new home. Thanks, Annie!!!

Love this place. Their trainers are amazing. I finally understand what's going on with my dog, and have been able to make changes and make him less scared / reduce barking / and teach him stuff!! Nice variety of classes too. Highly recommend them. Barbara

School For The Dogs is the BEST thing that can happen to a new dog owner in NYC. My husband and I got our puppy last summer and enrolled in Puppy Kindergarten. We were so impressed with the school, all of the trainers (and the friendly members!) that we bought a handful of private sessions and several other services. The trainers are incredibly talented and smart - the real deal. I would recommend SFTD 100%!

Annie and the rest of the staff are great. Very easy techniques for both owners and dogs to learn quickly. Would highly recommend these classes, private sessions and group plays for anyone that has a puppy
