This comprehensive, 12-week program trains you—the owner—as well as your dog and goes far beyond what is being offered by pet shops. This is an investment in dog ownership, which will pay off for the rest of your life with any dog you'll ever have. Your dog will learn good manners including—but not limited to—not jumping up at people, walking on a loose leash and paying attention to his family and not other dogs or distractions—full list below.
In addition you will learn to understand your dog better, why he does what he does and become far more knowledgeable and skilled than most by learning the fundamentals of dog psychology and everyday considerations related to your dog.
This program teaches you and your dog new skills and is only available to dogs without behavioral issues. If your dog has behavioral issues like fear or aggression, we can help you resolve those as well, but that will have to be done separately first. Resolving such issues has nothing to do with obedience training and requires behavioral conditioning.
The first part of the training time is spent on foundational training. Too many programs fail to lay a solid foundation and as a result, the dogs don't learn reliable behaviors. If you have to hold a treat in your hand for your dog to actually sit down, it's obvious that the training fell short. Foundational training means we teach your dog a marker system that allows you to better communicate with your dog in daily life and make sense to your companion. Too often we and our dog are talking past each other. We will change that. Regardless of context you will be able to let your dog know when he does well and should keep doing it, did well but can do something else now, did something that is never okay, is doing something that is generally okay but has taken it too far or is going about something the wrong way and should try it a different way. Your dog also learns to understand the collar and leash as an informational tool and not as a frustrating restraint device. Learning these basics first improves your relationship as it allows you to provide clarity to your dog and that will be appreciated by your companion.
