Start building a strong base with your new puppy and get them ready for Basic Obedience.
Young, old, big, or small, your dog should always be doing their business outside.
Whether it's pulling, chewing the leash, or some other issue, walks should be enjoyable for you as well as your dogs.
A crate is never a punishment, just a place for dogs to rest while you get things done that shouldn't be interrupted. House chores, meal time, or traveling, teach your dog to understand and enjoy their crate time.
Get the basics down at home and out with and without distractions. Basic commands include Come, Sit, Down, Heel, and Drop It.
Breezed through Basic Obedience or already had those commands down? Advanced Obedience is your next step. These commands include Place, Off, Through, Go to Bed, Tuck, and Back.
Once your dog is able to perform all Basic or Advanced commands while on leash, with and without distractions, get your dog to obey all commands Off-Leash with the help of an E-Collar.
This is meant for dogs that are at any stage of their training. If they have been displaying leash reactivity, fearfulness, nervousness, separation anxiety, resource guarding (food, toys, beds, home, owner), or other adverse behaviors, we will work towards rehabilitation to reduce these behaviors, and make their life and your life better.
Similar to Behavior Modification, if your dog has shown aggression towards any people or other dogs, has attempted to bite or attack, or even has a bite history, know that there are no bad dogs, only dogs who need direction. Whatever stage in their obedience training they are at, desensitizing them to people, dogs, or both will be crucial to increasing their quality of life, improving your relationship with them, and giving you the peace of mind now that your once unmanageable dog has a chance for a normal future.
