Training is an important part of your dog’s relationship with you. Many things dogs find fun are not things that humans enjoy. The key to getting the best-behaved dogs is to prevent behaviors you don’t like and teach them another behavior instead. Dogs are happy to do whatever pays off for them. Using a training program that involves positive reinforcement, we can create dogs who we are happy to live with.
What is your training like?
Training will focus on teaching dogs behaviors that will be useful to you in everyday life. Emphasis will be on dog-centered learning and positively reinforcing decisions the dog makes with treats and toys.
Classes are set up so dogs learn basic behaviors that can be built upon for more advanced skills. Each exercise is adjusted for the individual dogs and handlers, so everyone is successful, learning at their own pace, and getting the most out of the class.
What dogs need training?
Bad habits can be prevented with young dogs by enrolling in a puppy class or basic manners class. New to you older dogs can also benefit from training to jump-start good habits in their new life with you. Ever hear the saying, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Well, you actually can! Older dogs with behavior issues can greatly benefit from training.
Have a busy dog who is never tired? Bond with your dog and exercise their brain while training. Did you know that mental exercise can be just as tiring as physical exercise? Most dogs thrive on regular training to keep their mind busy. Learn things you can do with your dog at home or join us for regular group lessons.
Want something else to do with your dog to enrich their life? Dogs love learning new things. Well-behaved dogs can participate in training to learn tricks like wave goodbye, wipe your paws, or even get a soda from the fridge.
Training doesn’t stop with the basics! Dog’s are very smart animals and the list of things we can teach them is long. Dogs can learn jaw-dropping tricks, useful commands, agility skills, fitness exercises, and more.
