Nugget, Zack, Kelly, & Ralph
We are a North Brooklyn based boutique pet care company providing dog training, board and train programs and dog walking. We keep our client base small so that we can spend the most one-on-one time with your pet.
Founded by Kelly Corson, Hustle Pups NYC is an extension of her lifelong love of dogs and other animals. Kelly has completed a specialized workshop on working with difficult dogs with Heather Beck (K9 Lifeline), finished a six-week boot camp training with Kate McCue-Schwartz (Kate's Canines) and is an associate member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). Additionally, she has taken a course with Phyllis Smuland (Canine Counselor, Inc.) & Julie Hart (Rescue Dogs Responsibly) on evaluating and reading dog behavior, as well as studied under Martin Deeley (Florida Dog Trainer) & James Hamm (Lonestar Dog Trainer) on their methods of Basic Dog Training with a focus on E-Collar work.
Kelly continues to advocate & care for our four-legged friends in a multitude of ways. In 2005, Kelly rescued her own pup, Nugget, from Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC). In 2011, she & her partner Zack adopted Ralph from Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue with whom Kelly is a foster care provider & is currently a home visit volunteer. Then, in December of 2019, She and Zack adopted Gilly, their mini-dachshund through Korean K9 Rescue.
We are bonded, insured and certified in Pet First Aid & CPR. Through our personal experience we are familiar with the changing needs of aging pets, administering medication, leash reactivity and separation anxieties.

Planning for your puppy
Private training session packages
These programs are designed for adult & young dogs to lay the groundwork for good dog behavior while also being tailored to you and your dogs specific issues and needs.
Board and Train Intensive Program
Like boarding school for your pup, your dog will come to the HustlePups training loft to stay with our pack. They will stay for a consecutive three week program, followed by a weekend home with you. You dog will be given a session & some homework during that weekend to see how the training is doing. Afterwards, your dog will return to the HustlePups loft to continue polishing behaviors for another week. On the following weekend when your dog goes home, you will have another long session.
The program is an intensive training program that focuses on particular problem areas for your pup often including one or more of the following: separation anxiety, crate training, house breaking, barking, socialization, leash reactivity and any other issues you'd like addressed. In addition to walks and play sessions with our pups, your pup will have a minimum of two private training sessions per day.
This program is only as good as your willingness to keep up with the training that is established so be prepared to work! This program begins at $4,700.

Boarding for Training Clients
We offer overnight boarding to dogs who have previously completed a training program with Kelly. This is so that everyone will have an understanding of the training and structure we provide, and can function as a continuation of that training.
All boarding stays include:

What our happy customers have to say.
"My partner and I met Kelly when we were at the end of our rope with our 3 year-old Miniature Australian Shepard. Suffering from severe anxiety (separation related), he was impossible to leave home alone without intense barking, crying, and disruption for our neighbors. This caused us severe stress. Kelly took him for her 2-week intensive Board & Train program, and he came back a changed dog. Not only is he a pleasure to walk around the neighborhood, but he is comfortable enough in his crate to be left home alone with no barking or anxiety. Kelly is no joke. Her experience and dedication to helping us really came through in her work, and we are so beyond grateful. HustlePups NYC has changed our lives. THANK YOU!"
"Kelly is an amazing dog trainer. Taj, our Australian Shepherd, is a tough, aggressive, fearful and stubborn dude. Kelly has helped us train him and work with him so that he is now calmer, very well behaved, obedient and overall HAPPIER! She is also a very reliable dog walker, and offers great boarding options. We know we are leaving Taj in good, fun hands when he is with Kelly & Zack!"
"Kelly and Zack are the best. My dog, Fern, loves them and they've been great as we keep working on training. They're very knowledgeable and I always feel Fern is safe and having fun with them. As a bonus you'll get great pictures of your pup while you're at work."
"HustlePups is the absolute best in New York for training and boarding. Kelly trained my dog when I rescued him from Puerto Rico and he is so well behaved and wonderful thanks to her! I also have my dog board with Hustle Pups every time I travel and I know my pup is safe and in good hands, plus I get daily updates with lots of great pics! Kelly and Zack are so personable and helpful and really make me feel like my dog is specially cared for as if he was one of there own. This is so hard to find in New York as many places are overcrowded daycares with exhausted staff who barely know the dogs' names. HustlePups is a step above everything else!"
"It gave us such peace of mind on our travels to know that Kelly would take care of our two cats. She was amazing, shared photos and updates, and was just a gem overall. One cat was having a spot of bad health and Kelly gave him his meds and nursed him back to health. She just loves animals and I recommend her petsitting services very, very highly."
"Kelly and Zack have watched my whippet, Clara, on numerous occasions. Clara is the most important thing in the world to me, so I am very selective about who looks after her in my absence. I am 100% confident that Clara will be well cared for and happy when under their care. They also have two wonderful pups that are well behaved/sweet-as-sugar and will make for awesome companions for your dog. I highly recommend her services without reservation!"
