In Home Dog Training

Just like children, learning happens best when in a relaxed and quiet environment. It allows your dog to concentrate and absorb new information without distractions. This is the “Learning” stage of training.

The Learning stage isn’t just for dogs, in fact 90% of dog training  is PEOPLE training. We feel that training the whole family how to be effective communicators is the most import part of training dogs.

The ideal time to begin training is around 7 to 8 weeks for most puppies, and the most effective training involves positive reinforcement and gentle commands. This is also the age to begin socializing your puppy to new people and new species, allowing them to explore and have new experiences.

Training an older dog is totally possible, and in some cases might even be easier than training a puppy. Dogs are lifelong learners, and generally speaking they love to please their owners and receive attention. You can leverage these characteristics to train any dog, no matter their age or training background.
