………………….“because, at the end of the day, a sleepydog is a happy dog.”



meet gia, a cute, sweet little puggle. gia’s mom called us because gia was not housebroken and nothing they had tried worked. you see, gia was a breeder dog for 5 years in a puppy mill. at the puppymill she lived in a small battery cage in her own pee and poop. basically she was conditioned to live in excrement. luckily, she was rescued and adopted.

puppy mill dogs are notoriously difficult to housetrain, and gia was no exception. we told her family that we couldn’t guarantee she could be housebroken in 2 weeks or less…

BUT she was housetrained during the first week here at sleepydogtraining, and just to be on the safe side we continued working with her for a second week to make sure the training stuck. (if we had brought her back to her home too early in the training, she may have regressed.)

we can happily say that this amazing little former puppymill dog is now reliably housetrained!

we are sooooo proud of gia!!! you go gia girl!!!


gia loved it here, especially when it snowed!

May 2017 find you and everyone you love happy, healthy and prosperous!


We’ve been working with Josh, an adult pit bull since he was adopted by his wonderful forever family. Josh, like many rescued dogs had a very rough life before he was rescued. He has scars all over his face, neck and front legs from whatever happened in his life before rescue. luckily, the family who adopted josh saw through the scars and decided to foster him, and then adopted him. Like most dogs, Josh has forgiven and left behind  most of the baggage of his early life. He is a super sweet and funny boy, who is living the good life with his adoptive forever family, who love him dearly.

Recently we have begun the process of socializing Josh with other dogs. below are photos of what that looks like. we start with 2 leashed dogs in a neutral area, then go into the resident dogs yard with both dogs, then if all goes well, into the home.

The photos below are of step one, walking in a neutral area, a local park…



Josh did really well with our Cozy at the park, in Josh’s yard, and in Josh’s house.

We can’t wait to introduce Josh to another calm dog like Cozy…

Keep up the good work Josh and family!

Living With and Training a Pack of Dogs/SleepyDogTraining/NJ Dog Trainer/NY Dog Trainer/Pa Dog Trainer


At sleepydog llc. we live with our own pack of dogs. They are a well trained pack but that said, we are constantly working on their skills to keep them well trained and happy.

For example most mornings our dogs wait in the kitchen in a sit, stand or down stay, to be released one at a time into the yard…

Once in the yard, they wait in a sit, stand or down stay to be released once again…



After these types of short sweet training sessions, our dogs enjoy playing ball, chasing squirrels, and playing dog games with each other.

We choose different types of training /behavioral mini sessions like these to reinforce the positive behaviors we want and need.

The best thing about working our dogs daily, is that they are happy, satisfied dogs who are a pleasure to live with.
