Our Sessions Cover:
Does your dog struggle to understand what you ask of him/her? Learning the basics: “Sit” | “Down” | “Stay” | “Look At Me” will help you build the foundation for successful communication with your dog.
Does your dog ignore your calls when there is something more interesting? The ability to get your dog to come when called, even in the face of distractions, is one of the most important skills your dog will ever need.
Does your dog steal food or dash out the door every time it opens? “Leave It” | “Drop It” | “Wait” are excellent exercises that will teach your dog patience and that looking up to you for directions pay off in the long run.
Does you dog jump up on people on the street or on anyone who visits your home? Teaching your dog to sit politely in order to get people’s attention is the way to go.
Loose Leash Walking
Does your dog pull ahead and drag you along on the walk? Getting your dog to walk by your side and in-sync with your movements will make your walks much more enjoyable.
Relaxing On a Mat/Bed
Is your dog overly-enthusiastic and finding it hard to relax? We’ll go over a set of exercises to help teach your dog to self-calm and settle down, no matter what is happening in the environment.
Our Training Philosophy
We use positive, dog-friendly and science-based training techniques. Using positive reinforcement and a clicker as a training tool means that you are capturing, shaping & rewarding the behaviors you like while ignoring and redirecting the behaviors you do not like. You will learn how to use different rewards to teach your dog new behaviors. It is easy and fun for both dog and human alike, and once the basic learning patterns are mastered, you can teach your pup countless behaviors, making your days fun and active.
We’ll work privately with your dog on a weekly basis in order to provide continuous support and consistency. We’ll meet once a week in order to keep you up to date on the training progress and to transfer the skills onto you based on everything we’ve worked on.
Training With You
Ideal option for the dog owner who wants to be involved in every step along the training process. We’ll work together in order to reach your training goals.
