No need to travel anywhere; we will come to your home and custom tailor a training plan that would address the issues you may be having with your pet. Our trainer would come to your home and make an initial assessment. He or she would see, first-hand, what these issues are and recommend a lesson plan at a time that is convenient for you. This is an excellent way to train your dog because it is done by forming a team to help you and your dog; however, there are some pros and cons that we will address. Overall, this type of training has shown to be the most successful way to get you and your dog on the right path.
From the very first lesson, you will begin to see a difference in your dog’s behavior. You will also experience some changes in yourself and the way you respond to your dog. Your walks will be different because you will be connected to your dog, not just by the leash, but by a common language that you will begin to pick up on almost effortlessly. The trainer will come to your home for the first training visit and teach your dog behavior or a set of behaviors. Once you and your dog learn the behaviors, the trainer will assign the homework (yes, there is homework) to you and you will practice these behaviors every day for a week. On the next visit, the trainer will review the assigned behaviors and add another behavior to the mix. This will continue for the number of visits that were determined on the assessment visit.
The reason our method works so well is that from day one, we forge a team-type situation where the trainer is a coach and the dog, or dogs and the family are the team players. Everyone plays a part and every part is important. From day one, the team learns the most important thing which is to communicate with each other. The dog learns to communicate with the family and vice versa. This two-way communication is key to the success of the program and that starts the first day. We will show on day one that vital connection that would be the key to the training.
The cons of the system are that the team must work together; the training must be practiced every day consistently and there are no guarantees. So, having said that, if you find that you do not have the time to spend 30 minutes to an hour with your dog, daily, this program will not work for you. On the other hand, the pros of this system are that if the team works well together, it will produce the desired results. In a few short weeks, you will have a dog that is a pleasure to walk; will stay when you ask him; will not be a nuisance to your guests, and will come when you call him.
