Timing 

and 

Consistency

When it comes to dog training proper timing and consistency are essential. In this workshop we will go over how to practice for perfect timing, we will play different games to help us experience training from the dogs perspective, learn how to keep our training consistent for everyone working with our dogs, and why this is important.

Finding the Right Dog For Your Family

Unfortunately a lot of issues I come across stem from someone bringing home the wrong dog for their family and lifestyle. When this happens families often struggle to make the decision of whether or not they should re-home the dog or completely change their lives to fit this new addition. 

The goal of this workshop is to prevent this from happening in the first place! We will go over the different needs of different breeds, what to look for at the initial meeting of a possible new family member, and what questions to ask the fosters and shelters when adopting.

Puppy Time!

How to prevent behavioral problems.

So many of the behavioral problems I work on with adolescent and adult dogs could have been prevented if the dog was prepared properly as a puppy.

Working with puppies is largely about preventing future behavioral problems. In the first 6 months of a dogs life we have the chance to set them up for success in every area.

 

This workshop will go over all of the essential training you need to prevent future problems with your pup.
