Princeton, New Jersey, is a town steeped in rich American history, multifaceted demographics, and an array of interesting facts and statistics that contribute to its unique character. Historically, Princeton is perhaps best known for Princeton University, founded in 1746 as the College of New Jersey, and later moved to Princeton in 1756. This Ivy League institution has been a pivotal intellectual hub, a breeding ground for notable scholars and leaders, including U.S. Presidents Woodrow Wilson and James Madison.

The demographics of Princeton are a reflection of its role as an educational powerhouse, drawing a diverse, international population to its storied campus and the town at large. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the 2019 population estimate for Princeton was just over 31,000 people, with a significant portion associated with the university, either as students, faculty, or staff.

Princeton’s notable cultural diversity is further highlighted by its variety of ethnic and racial makeup, with a significant Asian-American community, alongside White, African-American, Hispanic, and other racial and ethnic groups adding to the mosaic. The median household income, influenced by both the affluence that an institution like Princeton University attracts and the high cost of living, stands markedly above the national average.

Fun facts about Princeton include its role in the American Revolution, particularly the pivotal Battle of Princeton in 1777, which saw the American forces led by George Washington defeat the British, turning the tide in favor of independence. Additionally, the town was once the capital of the early United States for a brief period in 1783.

Princeton’s influence on the global stage is also evident in the realm of science and arts. For instance, Albert Einstein resided in Princeton during his work at the Institute for Advanced Study. The town has also been a filming location for various movies, disguising as its quintessential American charm exudes.

In summary, Princeton is a historical jewel in the heart of New Jersey, harmonizing the past and present, education and community, local charm, and international prominence. It remains a testament to the power of knowledge and the pursuit of enlightenment in shaping both national identity and the fabric of local life.

Dog obedience training offers numerous benefits, for both dogs and their owners, that contribute towards a harmonious household and a fulfilling canine-human relationship. Firstly, obedience training nurtures a clear line of communication between you and your dog, making it easier for them to understand what is expected of them. It also helps to establish a common language that both parties can comprehend.

Secondly, it instills good habits and helps to curb potentially destructive behavior. Dogs that undergo obedience training are less likely to engage in undesirable activities, such as excessive barking or chewing on furniture.

Thirdly, obedience training provides mental stimulation for your dog. Like humans, dogs require mental exercise to be at their happiest and healthiest. Obedience training can offer this mental engagement, reducing instances of canine anxiety and depression.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, obedience training can be crucial for your dog’s safety. A well-trained dog will respond to commands to return, to stay or to leave potentially dangerous situations, potentially saving their life.

So, whether you’re interested in creating a stronger bond with your dog, establishing clear communication, or ensuring their safety, dog obedience training holds immense value.

We Specialize in Basic Obedience and Off Leash Obedience Training

Our expertise lies in both basic obedience and off leash obedience training, shaping your pet into a disciplined, confident companion. Our basic obedience training focuses on teaching dogs fundamental commands like ‘sit’, ‘place’, ‘come’, and ‘heel’. This promotes mutual understanding and establishes a shared language between you and your pet, fostering a harmonious living environment.

Venturing a step further, we also specialize in off leash obedience training. This advanced step empowers your dog with the freedom to explore while still maintaining their behavior. Off leash training involves teaching your dog to obey commands even when not restrained by a leash, instilling in them reliability and trustworthiness. This level of training allows your pet the freedom to roam in open spaces, like Princeton’s Community Park North, while ensuring they respond to your commands promptly. With our training, you can trust that your dog will behave appropriately and safely, even in stimulating or distracting environments.

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
