I do my job while you do yours.
As positive, science-based dog trainers, we find the subject of canine learning and behavior to be absolutely fascinating. It's why we do what we do. We tend to assume that others will find training dogs to be every bit as fulfilling as we do. What dog trainers often seem to forget is that you already have a job, or a family, or many other obligations and really busy schedules. You're not a dog trainer, you're not trying to become a dog trainer. That's why you decided to hire one.
It's understandable that people can become frustrated and discouraged when told by a trainer what they should be doing, then left to figure out how to go about training their dogs all by themselves, until the trainer shows up the next time.
The reality is that most people have precious little time to devote to teaching their dogs how to behave properly. This does not make them bad dog parents, or lazy, or uncaring. We would never say that a parent who home-schools their children are better or more dedicated than those who send their kids to be taught by professional educators.
So How Does Day Training Work?
After our initial consultation, I will customize training program for your dog. Since each dog is unique, we'll determine what best motivates your particular pooch. Then I do the training for you. After your dog has successfully learned new skills and desired behaviors, then I show you how to maintain your dog's success in our transition session.
Good News for All of Us!
It is my mission to make training a positive and successful experience for dogs and their people, whether it's our day training programs or coaching sessions to focus on a particular training goal. The good news is, recent studies of dog cognition and learning indicate that dogs and puppies retain more and perform new behaviors better and more easily when trained in shorter increments. So goodbye to the idea that you or your dog need tedious drills or long training sessions! Shorter, varied lessons are much more effective and enjoyable!
