Instinct®

YOUR URBAN DOG BEHAVIOR PROFESSIONALS

Instinct® was founded on the principle that dogs are family. Our experienced team of certified, veterinarian-recommended trainers and behavior consultants are guided by this simple principle, and are committed to providing help and hope to every dog and owner – no matter how difficult a situation may seem – through practical, positive and effective training and behavior consulting services.

About Us

Established in 2009, Instinct’s flagship facility is located in East Harlem, NYC, where dogs from all over the country come for training & behavior help.

Our Helper Dogs

Our human team is pretty amazing, but we’d be lost without our incredible Instinct Helper Dogs, who accompany us to work each day and provide invaluable assistance in the training of other dogs. Our canine teammates work together with our professional trainers to help socialize fearful and aggressive dogs, teach puppies how to play, encourage nervous dogs to explore, and demonstrate the how-to’s of obedience exercises for our clients.
