Here are some different kinds of dog training programs that are available.
Behavioral training is any type of training that teaches dogs how to behave correctly around people and other animals. This type of training is ideal for aggressive dog behavior. Although it won’t be cured in one day, there are loads of steps you can take to ward off the aggressive behavior and keep your dog calm. It may include some basic commands, but the end goal is to make them good citizens as dogs. Most of this training may deal with behavioral problems like chewing, excessive barking, jumping on people, biting, or housebreaking. The first step toward eliminating this behavior is to understand what’s causing the dog’s aggressive behavior with dog aggression training. For example, many dogs will growl when someone approaches them while they’re chewing or eating a bone, Others will react aggressively toward strangers or children. This is also a very common type of training that is appropriate for younger pups that are just getting started. It is best to get puppies trained right away, before bad habits are developed.
How to Stop Aggression
Vocational or Service Dog Training
Dogs can learn a wide variety of skills just like humans. There are some dogs that learn how to hunt, heard, assist the disabled, do search and rescue work, or even work with law enforcement. This is the ultimate choice for off leash k9 training. These learned skills are like vocational training for dogs because it means that they will have a career helping people in one way or another. With these programs, dogs learn specific techniques to hone their senses and communicate with humans, but the programs are also tough and time-consuming. Any type of vocational training for dogs would assume that they have a solid foundation in terms of their basic skills. Also, some of these programs are suited for specific breeds as well.

What Our Customers Say!
Puppy Training and why it’s important to start early.
Puppies hardly retain anything at such a young age, but with consistency they will eventually learn. One of the things we have found is that when you limit their freedom, they are more prone to taking on things and learning fast.
It’s important to watch their behaviors and look for any aggression or anxiety before it becomes second nature. All dogs need a leader and at this young age, they yearn for it even if they don’t know it. We do puppy training or puppy preschool. 🙂
This is the stage where they use their teeth to explore, to play and to express dominance. This is also the stage that when things happen, it could stick with them forever. Puppies need to be socialized immediately after they get their vaccines in order to get used to loud noises, other people, other dogs and even cats. If you don’t take this step, life can get pretty hard for you and your pup in the future. Puppies are a lot of responsibility and lot’s needs to be done in the early years. We can help. Call us for a consultation or a schedule of classes.
