Have you ever thought to yourself how nice it would be to walk your dog without being pulled? Have you ever asked your dog to come to you or sit without getting a response? All of these situations can be very frustrating to the dog owner who is trying desperately to obtain good doggie behavior.
At a basic level, owners want dogs with whom they can pleasantly share a house, a car ride, or a walk in the park. Some dogs only need only a minimal amount of training to learn the basic commands (sit, down, come, stay). Many other dogs prove more challenging.
New dog owners might find training difficult because they expect dogs to think and act like humans, and are surprised when the dogs do not.
Our instructors work with you and your family to structure a training program for each dog and owner that meets their individual needs. Our training methods are based on positive reinforcement and motivation. We strive to teach owners how to build confidence in their dogs and themselves.
We understand that one of the hardest parts of the training process is communicating with your dog in a humane way that he understands. Dogs generally want to make their owners happy, but they do not automatically know what their owners want.
Just like being a parent, children require support and guidance throughout their lives. When you made the decision to include a dog as part of your family, you made a commitment to properly care for him. As such, whether you have a puppy or an adult, dogs require training throughout their entire lives.
Our positive training methods make communication possible by praising positive behavior while ignoring or correcting negative behavior.
Our knowledge of animal behavior and experience allows us to shape the dog’s behavior and enlist their willing participation in the training process.
Having a dog is a lifetime commitment and one that should not be taken lightly. As you begin training, you and your dog will experience a relationship that is built upon mutual trust and respect.
Let us help you teach your dog how to have good manners both at home and in public. Our training classes will allow you to achieve the results you desire with your best friend.
