Does your furry friend need some in home dog training? Do you:
- wonder why your dog behaves as he does?
- need help with leash-pulling, lunging, and excessive barking?
- believe your dog is suffering from separation anxiety or aggression issues?
- have a new puppy you need to socialize and train basic obedience?
- want your adult dog to be fearful in the real world?
Dog training is a process that takes a lot of patience, understanding, and imagination. And there is not a “one size fits all” methodology in dog training. What works for Hank, the 4-month-old golden retriever may not work for Teddy, the 5-year-old chihuahua. Therefore, I will work with you to put together an in home dog training program specific to your canine friend . It will take into consideration your dog’s breed, motivational drives, age, socialization history and already-learned behaviors.
In Home Dog Training Programs
BASIC OBEDIENCE FOR PUPPIES
Why are “sit”, “come”, “down”, “stay” and “leave it” so important for your puppy to master? Because they can keep your dog stay safe in everyday highly arousing situations. In addition, training your dog for these commands helps you establish a relationship and communication system with your dog. Puppies as young as 7 weeks old have the ability to learn the commands. Therefore, don’t hold off on dog training because early puppyhood is a critical developmental stage. The quicker you begin our in home dog training, the easier for all involved.
OBEDIENCE TRAINING FOR ADULT DOGS
An older dog who has developed bad habits, is undoubtedly more difficult to break of those habits. But there is hope because a dog is never too old to learn.
If you believe your dog is “aggressive”**, I can also help. We can determine if aggression is truly at play or if your dog is engaging in normal canine behaviors. Sometimes unwanted behaviors, such as leash pulling, lunging and frantic barking can be minimized or altogether eliminated with the use of basic classical and operant conditioning techniques.
WALK AND TRAIN
I have seen how critically important it is for the psychological and emotional well-being of a dog to have proper training and socialization. This is especially important in the early stages of their development.
Our “Walk and Train” program was created because we understand the importance of consistency in training. All of your dog’s handlers must adhere to the same techniques in order for training to take hold. Because most people don’t understand canine body language and social cues, they can unintentionally be undo the training that has taken place.
If Fido has already had clicker or marker training, I am versed in both techniques. I will continue their use on our walks. Again, consistency is key!
Dog Training Methodology
I subscribe to the dog training philosophies as prescribed by my professional membership in the IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals) of whom Cesar Milan is a member, and in those techniques set out in LIMA (least invasive, minimally aversive) with an emphasis on positive reinforcement.
**Aggression comes in MANY forms, depending on the root of the behavior. In some instances, such as dogs who engage in what is known as “Control Conflict Aggression” and/or “Dog-to-Dog Aggression”. You will need to seek out a trainer who specializes in aggression. Please inquire if you would like a consultation to evaluate.
