Captain Haggerty and his War Dog “Trixie”

For four generations the Haggerty Family has been involved in the joy of training, breeding, raising, showing, and handling man’s best friend. It began with Great Grandfather Haggerty and his show Boston Terriers and Grandpa Healy’s Irish Setters.Then in 1962, Captain Haggerty, began Captain Haggerty’s School for Dogs in Bronx, New York. The Captain has left behind a legacy that forever changed the dog training profession. It has been said that he was the “man who trained the trainers and made dog training a respected profession”.Many modern methods and techniques used today were developed by the Captain. Shortly before his death, he had been called “The Last Real Dog Trainer in the World.” Today the school and his legacy is being carried by his only child, Babette Haggerty.Click here to learn more about Captain Arthur J. Haggerty, the “Ultimate Dog Man”, the man who was “to dogs what The Beatles were to rock and roll” and Babette Haggerty, “Palm Beach’s Favorite Dog Trainers.”

The legacy that began nearly five decades ago continues. Captain Haggerty is responsible for making “dog training a respected and valued profession”. It has been said he did for dog training what the Beatles did for rock n roll. [See Capt. Haggerty’s Biography]

His daughter, Babette Haggerty, has one mission. To Train Every Day Families to Have Once in a Lifetime Dogs. “I want to give families the dog that all of their dogs past and future are measured against.” A Bergen County native, she began working in the family’s upstate New York kennel as a young child.

She continues her family’s tradition by offering private in-home lessons, puppy training, obedience classes, problem solving, house training and dog trick training throughout Northern New Jersey and New York City. On occasion she does travel to visit her Palm Beach clients where she owned the most respected dog training school from 1989-2007. Babette’s latest book is “The Best Dog Tricks On The Planet”
