Fall 2017 dog training has arrived, and we are excited about our back-to-school dog training. In the past, these courses have been rewarding for both owners and their dogs, and we are looking forward to helping out yet another group of human and canine teams in our dog training classes for September and October of 2017. Let your pup know that you are the head of the pack.
In our classes, you will learn the importance of establishing yourself as the head of your dog’s pack. Your dog will work with you in the canine classroom — and you will learn how to reinforce your pack leader role at home and in other environments. Most importantly, you will learn how to make your dog feel safe and comfortable in your presence so that he or she will be looking to you for the next command.
Share a common language. Learn the language and gestures of your dog, and give her or him the opportunity to learn and respond to yours. These skills are essential for engaging with any dog you own — and they help you nurture a positive relationship with your dog in general.
Teach your dog socialization skills. Lastly, our group classes, taught by experienced professionals, are a great way for your dog to learn the essential social skills required to get along with other dogs and people.
