Having your dog professionally trained is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your pet. It will make you feel better about taking your pet out in public, prevent unwanted behavior, and help you develop a strong bond with them.
You’ll learn what motivates your dog, how to reward them, and how to positively use treats, praise, and owner affection. Having this knowledge will help you train your dog, and it will also help you avoid any miscommunication that could lead to a problem in the future.
Dog trainers use various tools and techniques to help dogs learn and behave appropriately. They also study animal behavior and learning, including classical and operant conditioning.
They must also be familiar with various canine personalities and breeds. They must be confident in their skills and have a strong passion for the job.
The first session
Unlike most training methods you find online or in books, professional dog trainers have hands-on experience with different types of dogs and can adapt to their individual needs. Professional dog training uses positive reinforcement and force-free techniques to get the desired behavior in their dogs without using food treats.
If you have an older dog that needs a refresher course on basic obedience, a trainer can help you. They can also help your dog with behaviors that might be a nuisance for you or visitors.
A good trainer will help you understand your dog’s motivations and teach them how to read their body language to respond appropriately to commands. It dramatically benefits your relationship with your dog and will make interactions with them much more enjoyable.
In addition, training will help you manage your dog’s behavior and keep them safe in situations that would otherwise be stressful or dangerous for them. It will also give you the skills to communicate with your dog in various environments and trust them to follow your lead.
The Second session
It’s no secret that a dog must be trained to perform well in most situations. That’s why training by a personal dog trainer is a top choice for many pet parents looking to improve their canine companion’s behavior. The best part is that it can be relatively inexpensive and inexpensive. Depending on the type of training you sign up for, your puppy or dog might only need to attend classes a few times per week or be home with you on certain days. We also provide the tools you need to maintain your newly learned skills at home, including a reward chart and interactive game boards for dogs of all ages.
The Third session
This session takes your dog’s training to the next level. It’ll learn competition-style commands and precision and how to navigate their environment so they stay calm and energized by new sights, smells, people, and dogs. They’ll also be prepared for advanced classes like off-leash obedience, fetch, and agility.
Your dog needs to be able to sit, lay down, remain put, wait calmly, and come when called at this point. It’ll also be able to play with other dogs and go on leash walks while remaining calm and focused on you, not other people or things. It is a great way to train your dog and set a foundation for future success that will make their life easier. They’ll also receive one week of ongoing text and email support. Then, if you’re ready to move forward, we’ll schedule a 45-minute evaluation with your trainer for an in-person visit or phone/zoom video conference.
