The Best Care For Your Best Friend
Our Training is Proven and Positive

 

Reasons to train your dog:

  1. Your dog will have a chance to become socialized. During training dogs get the opportunity to interact with other dogs on a regular basis. They meet dogs of all sizes and breeds. They also meet a variety of people.
  2. It is natural dog behavior to jump up at people when greeting them. The sit command gives your dog an acceptable greeting behavior.
  3. The stay command gives you better control over your pet and it could save your dogs life in certain situations.
  4. The recall gives you the same benefits as the stay command. Control and safety.
  5. Walking on a loose leash makes for enjoyable walks. The best time to teach this is when your dog is young. However, it is never too late to remedy this problem.

$75.00 for an hour and $90.00 to an hour and a half.

Includes follow up by phone/email.

You may wonder what is the purpose of a behaviour consultation? Many problems that exist between dog and owner can be solved by a consultation. I will come into your home for one hour and show you how to correct the undesirable behaviour. I will leave you with written instructions that if followed, are highly successful. With the problem solved you will have a better behaved dog. Less stress for everyone, and as a result a calmer home.

Dogs and Kids , Puppies and kids are a match made in heaven. However, they should never be left alone together. Children need to be taught to behave around a puppy and the pup must learn how to act around children.

Socialization, Why should you socialize your dog? Dogs are social animals and love to be with people and other dogs. A dog that is used to different situations, has manners, obedience and will be a dog that people love to be with. By sixteen weeks of age, a dog's brain stops growing so it is very important to introduce your dog to the world as soon as possible.

Bite Inhibition, Teaching your dog bite inhibition is the most important thing of all. As a dog owner, this is your number one responsibility. All dogs are potential biters and all have to be trained to never bite people.

Digging , Dogs need to dig. However, let's teach them where to dig. Make it possible to leave your dog alone in your yard without destroying it.

Chewing, A dog who chews can cause a lot of trouble for its owner. Chew toys can be the answer to your problem if you use them properly.

Barking, Dogs and barking go together. However, too much barking is not acceptable behavior. Learn how to teach your dog to bark on command and to be quiet on command.

Jumping, Jumping up is a greeting behavior. It is the way dogs say hello. However, people do not enjoy this behavior. Teach your dog to do a more acceptable greeting behavior.

Housebreaking, This is a very common behavior problem. Teach your pet to tell you that it has to go to the washroom. Teach it to go in the same place every time. This will make clean up a lot easier.

Separation Distress, Dogs are pack animals and are not meant to be separated from their pack. Teach your dog to enjoy spending time alone. Have someone come in during the day to break up the day for your dog. It is not fair to expect your pet to be alone all day. Having someone come in and walk them will release energy and stress from your dog.
