Greenville, SC dog being trained privately

A new dog can bring lots of laughter and fun to a home. While those are important, it’s equally as important to ensure you’re being a responsible dog owner. This means you need to care for the dog’s needs. These go far beyond just giving it food and water; you also need to ensure the dog has training that helps it to remain safe.

The Dog Wizard Greenville is ready to help you with this training. We offer a variety of obedience training options, including private lessons, that help provide a well-rounded education for your dog. Our goal is for your dog to have the self-confidence to be the best dog possible. We do this through a mixture of positive reinforcement, preventive measures, and gentle corrections. We tailor our program to fit your dog’s personality and your family’s dynamics.

What Can Your Dog Learn During Private Greenville Dog Training Lessons?

Your dog can learn many valuable skills during dog training classes. Our private training sessions are done on a leash so you have control over the dog during the lessons. This enables you to show the dog you’re the alpha in the situation. It also works to solidify the trust the dog has in you.

The basic obedience skills we start working on during private training services include:

  • Sit
  • Place
  • Come
  • Off
  • Down

We’ll also help you work with your puppy or older dog on walking on a loose leash. This is helpful if you’re going to take your dog for walks, to the dog park or to other dog-friendly areas.

Our trainers can also assist you with other dog skills, such as housebreaking or crate training. We can work on socialization with other pets or objects. We work closely with you to find out what skills your dog needs, and we then craft a custom plan that draws on our experience to give you the tools you need for your dog to be successful.

Our trainers can provide private lessons in your home. This gives them a chance to help you address behavioral issues with your dog where they usually occur. This can help boost the effectiveness of these lessons.

We can offer suggestions for corrective actions if the behavior problems are already a habit for the dog. We can also provide you with some preventive tips if there are things that might help your pooch stay out of trouble. We tailor these to address your dog’s behavior and the triggers that might cause the behavioral problems.

How Do Private Lessons Work With Other Obedience Classes?

All The Dog Wizard’s training programs are meant to work with each other. Individuals who utilize our private training option can also take part in the group classes. These provide lessons on obedience when there are distractions around. They also help with socialization since the pup is around other dogs and pet parents during training.

If a dog needs an intensive training period, we offer board and train options that last 7, 14 or 21 days. During that time, your pooch stays in our dog boarding facility and our trainers handle the obedience training. You can build on that training by reinforcing the skills the dog learned and teaching new ones.
