Instinct Dog Behavior & Training® Coming to Westchester, New York

New York, NY, RELEASE – June 7, 2019

It’s official! Instinct Dog Training Inc. is thrilled to announce that the company’s vision of A Kinder World through Dog Training™ is coming to Westchester, NY! The third Instinct facility – dubbed “Instinct Westchester” – is slated to open December 2019. Location scouting is currently underway.

Instinct Dog Behavior & Training franchise facilities offer dogs and owners kind, practical training and behavior help from certified trainers and behavior consultants, for everything from basic manners and obedience to complex behavior issues involving fear, aggression, and anxiety. Services include Instinct’s signature positive reinforcement Board & Train camps, along with private lessons, group classes, free puppy and “Alumni” classes, and Alumni boarding.

The Westchester franchise is owned by an impressive team who brings proven experience in both dog training & facility ownership and management: Megan Coryat and Blossom Coryat, who owned and ran a successful training & daycare facility, Doggedly Devoted, in upper Manhattan in years past.

“We are absolutely delighted to have such a talented and dedicated team leading Instinct Westchester,” said Sarah Fraser, Co-CEO of franchisor company Instinct Dog Training Inc. “Their proven experience – from both a dog training & behavior standpoint and a facility management standpoint – coupled with their unwavering dedication to Instinct’s vision and mission will enable them to make a huge, positive difference in the lives of Westchester dogs and owners.”

“Choosing a trainer is no easy task for dog owners – our industry is unregulated and it’s hard to know what exactly you’re going to get when you reach out to someone for help,” said Megan Coryat, co-owner of the Instinct Westchester franchise. “We can’t wait to provide the Westchester-area community with a safe, kind, predictable, and effective option for training & behavior modification services.”

For dogs, for owners, for hope and kindness, and practical help for behavior issues big and small. For #trainingcampnotbootcamp. For a new and better standard in the dog training industry. For A Kinder World through Dog Training. Welcome to the Instinct family, Instinct Westchester!
