Basic and Advanced Obedience
Having an obedient dog does not only make your life easier, but it has enormous benefits for your dog as well! The mental stimulation that obedience training provides is not only fun for your dog, but it helps them to feel more balanced and you build an important part of your relationship. Think of obedience training as establishing a clear language that both you and your dog understand so that your communication can be effective. Obedience is a foundation that enhances your relationship with your dog so that you can become a “working team.” Dogs love freedom and the ability to explore, but the only way they can be given this freedom is if they are reliable!
Problem-solving for owners is a behavioral modification for dogs. If your dog is doing something you don’t like, such as chewing, barking, digging, jumping to name a few, there is generally a reason. Let us help you uncover why, teach your dog the path to good things and show you how to turn that bad behavior into a positive one.
Owning a dog that has dog or human aggression can be scary and stressful. But what a lot of owners don’t realize is, it is just as scary and stressful on the dog. The deep underlying root of almost all aggression is negative experiences, frustration, fear, or lack of socialization. Sometimes it is a combination of these things, creating an even more complex problem. In all cases of aggression, we begin by determining the “root” and why your dog is behaving aggressively, and then we work to change the association through structure, confidence building, and positive association. Don’t let your dog be stressed any longer, contact a trainer today to help them to a more balanced life.
Rescue Dog Rehab
We work with every type of dog coming from every background imaginable, and this certainly includes rescue dogs! We absolutely love rehabilitating rescue dogs, so that they can become part of a loving family. Dogs are truly resilient so most of their problems can be resolved once they have some structure, obedience, and compassionate attention. Whether your rescue dog is under socialized and nervous, recovering from an abusive environment, or just wild and out of control, we can help!
Separation Anxiety is a common issue, and it is one that will rarely solve itself. For a number of various reasons, these dogs never learned how to be alone. They are dependent on another being to feel safe and secure. When that being is not present and in an effort to cope with this anxiety, a dog turns to often destructive or high-stress habits. Some owners have become prisoners to their dogs and can’t even go out to dinner. This can be very stressful on the owners and dogs, but we have the skills and knowledge to help your dog gain the self-confidence to be alone and feel secure.
Socialization is the key component to having a balanced dog. Our dogs by nature have social desires that need to be met but all socialization is not always good socialization. Whether it is proper socialization at a young age, or your dog needing to learn appropriate social skills to be in a pack, or teaching coping skills for a dog with social anxieties or fear of other dogs we are here to help! Socialization is a fundamental part of what we do to help you and your dog on the way to a balanced life. Contact a trainer today to find out how we can help you and your dog achieve your goals.
The therapeutic value of dogs is undisputed in everyday life, which is why lending this energy to brighten the lives of those who are sick, elderly, or troubled in some way can be such a rewarding experience.
