The excitement of owning a dog can quickly turn into chaos. Your dog doesn’t do what you want, and you don’t know what to do. You need help. At K-9 City we understand the joys and frustrations of owning a dog. We provide you the effective tools & techniques to transform the chaos you are experiencing into the sweet companion you have always dreamed of.
One of the first questions clients often ask is how long their training will take. There are different answers revolving around the same general theme. The time in training will depend on the nature of your difficulties, your dog’s motivation to change, and how hard you are willing to work. The important thing to remember is that you and your dog are unique, and you cannot be compared to anyone else.
Here are some of the methods that are used in training. Each method is introduced in such a way that you can learn to use it on your own. There is not just one way of doing things. Different methods are introduced for different dogs with different issues. Some of the strategies that are especially useful include: knowing what the dog’s needs are, knowing what your needs are, planning strategies to use rewards and penalties in reference to behavioral goals. It is important to practice the skills you’ll learn in school for our Dogs. Remember that with 1 hour of training per week, there are 167 hours left in your weekly life so practice, practice, practice! For you to benefit the most from training, it is important that you make the commitment to come regularly (This applies to group classes as well as private sessions).
