Front Desk And Retail Area

We love our “Dog Moms and Dads” as much as we love their dogs, so our Front Desk team is always here for you and whatever you need! This is also where you’ll find all our most popular treats, training supplies, and more!


Private Lesson Areas

We have three different areas in the facility where we have private lessons with our students. Each private lesson is tailored to achieve your specific dog training goals. Whether we’re teaching your dog commands and manners, or solving behavior problems, a private lesson allows our trainers to focus on just you and your dog!

PlayCare Floor Indoor

Our indoor PlayCare floor provides a safe and sanitary environment for your dog’s play time. ALL puppies and dogs in our PlayCare program are current, in-training students, so we know each and every dog’s personality and temperament! PlayCare team members are formally trained by KSDT in dog body language, basic obedience training and behavior, CPR, *and* first aid, so in addition to loving dogs, they’re also industry PROFESSIONALS. That’s one of the secrets behind how we create perfect playgroups for every dog. Our one-of-a-kind program ensures a safe, clean, fun, and enriching experience for everyone.


PlayYard & Outdoor Classroom

We LOVE seeing our PlayCare dogs having fun on our 3,000 square foot outdoor play space! To keep your dogs clean (and the area hygienic), K9 Grass was installed! To keep your dogs SAFE, it’s gated and fully supervised during all activities. Weather permitting we’ve been hosting playgroups, private lessons, PlayCare events, AND group classes outdoors!

Boutique Style Grooming Shop

We now have a full-service, state-of-the-art grooming shop at our Waldwick training facility.

Our groomers are industry veterans, who fit into the KSDT ‘brand’ of professional talent and a true love of dogs. We’re so excited to be able to finally offer an exceptional ‘boutique’ grooming service, focused on the experience that each and every dog has while they’re with us. We don’t overbook our groomers, because at the end of the day, the way your dog feels after the appointment is as important to us as the way they look.

Plus, you can add grooming (or even just a bath or nail trim!) to your dog’s day at PlayCare, FastTrack, or while boarding with us. How easy is THAT?


Agility and Training Center

Our 50’x50’ room has 20ft+ ceilings and a fully matted training floor! This amazing space is perfect for our ‘agility for fun’ program, AND socially distanced group obedience and specialty training classes!

Water Treadmill Room

Now Available To Students At Our Dog Training Facility: AquaPaws SS Underwater Treadmill System!

The exact same equipment that’s in large veterinary hospitals, AquaPaws SS is a unique underwater treadmill system. It’s specifically designed to give dogs the benefits of aquatic therapy for training and conditioning with increased cardio and muscle strengthening, rehab from injury, and general exercise for wellness and weight loss.
