Basic obedience training for any dog over four months that is size and temperament appropriate using marker training and positive reinforcement. Training will include come / recall, walking on a loose leash, sit, down, stay, using verbal commands and hand signals. We study the use of various equipment. Canine body language, dog to dog, and dog to people greetings, how to customize your training and identify your dog's personality types are presented. Tips are offeredon advanced companion dog commands such as look, wait, place, go visit, drop and fetch.


So your dog knows basic obedience, but the hormones have kicked in, and now he thinks it's ok to be defiant, rebellious, and even steal some food off the counter once in a while! Time to reassert yourself as that consistent and insistent pack-leader that you started out to be - and pick up a few tricks along the way. Let me help get that bond and respect back! We will review basic obedience, and good pack leader behavior. We address desensitization to distractions, and how to inject excitement to overcome stubborn, defiant behavior. I explain why dogs at this stage rebel against leash pressure, calming requests, and encounter house training lapses. I discuss how to keep your dog out of trouble at the dog park and in public. Finally, we work on improving vocabulary, timing and tone to be more effective.
