This question can only be answered by our behaviorists and will depend on your dog’s age, experience, previous training history, your goals, schedule, budget and family situation. We have a dog-training program for you that offers the training you need, when you need it.
We do offer private dog training consultations, if interested just give us a call and we will book an appointment.
A hungry pooch. Please don’t feed your baby for at least 4 hours before class.
Some very yummy treats. They should be soft and the size of a small fingernail. We recommend soft liver treats for the first class.
A standard (non-flexi) leash and a regular collar or body harness.
A squeaky toy that can be used to get your doggie’s attention. You can also bring a tug toy.
When you arrive at class please keep your baby busy until everyone arrives, and class starts.
Absolutely. We encourage it if you have children in the home. Doggie training is fun and the more the merrier. We do encourage that all members of the family work with the dog the same way as it helps the dog learn more quickly. Dog training builds trust and this is important for a doggie living in a family environment.
All kinds of behaviors can be modified. The most common problems presented in doggies are barking, chewing, separation anxiety, inappropriate elimination, begging, chasing, jumping, biting, fear, resource guarding, among others. Thoroughly understanding these behavior problems is the first step to solving and preventing them. All our techniques are science-based and up to date.
We use positive reinforcement-based methods. We believe doggies learn good behavior by being rewarded for doing well, and punishment doesn’t have to come in the form of a harsh reprimand or physical force. Our trainers use verbal cues, hand signals, treats, clickers, toys, and games to teach tricks and even to help modify behavior. All our techniques are science-based and up to date. Anything our furry customers like and enjoy is fair game to train with.
