While some methods of obedience training for dogs rely on taking your dog away from your home and train them in a board and train environment, or inducing pain or discomfort, our method empowers you with the insight you need to become your dog’s pack leader. Once the role of pack leader is fulfilled by you, most other issues and concerns will fall naturally and easily into place. All the dog training tips in the world won’t matter if your dog doesn’t view you as his pack leader. Dogs have an innate need for the social structure and security of a pack, so in order to maintain a peaceful existence, dog owners must learn to confidently lead that pack. Leadership has nothing to do with being “dominant” it’s about being a great mentor. The bottom line is this: Dog behavior issues almost always stem from lack of consistent leadership. Pack leadership isn’t difficult to achieve, it simply requires a basic understanding of the pack leader mindset and consistent use of a few, straight forward techniques. We can accomplish all without the use of pinch, choke or shock “vibration” collars. Your dog should behave and mind you because they WANT TO.
Training for the real world. The training is comprehensive, we focus on all behavioral issues, obedience training and socialization with other dog’s and people.
We start off the training in your home, where your dog learns the best and where they need to behave. The training methods are natural, dog-friendly, effective, and kind. We do not use pinch, choke or shock collars. We rarely use treats. The first lesson is about 2-3 hours long, designed to give you as much information and training as possible, so that you can be successful right away. I will help you assess your current household dynamics and how it may influence your dog’s behaviors. After making any necessary adjustments to the environment, we’ll then teach you methods of canine communication that will help you lead your dog with confidence and ease. Again on the first lesson, depending on the age of your dog, we will teach the obedience commands; sit, stay, come and heel (heel means, walking next to you without pulling), we will then work on home manners and the specific behavioral issues you want to address right away.
The follow-up lessons are about one hour long and scheduled at the end of each lesson. After the home issues are resolved, we start working on socialization, going on outings to public areas around other dog’s and people to teach your dog to be comfortable in any setting.
At the end of the training, you should be able to pass your American Kennel Club, Canine Good Citizen test! Please contact me to discuss the program best suited to you and your dog’s needs.
