Dog training and services for the family pet!
Specializing in family dogs!
That moment you wonder if you will survive that cute little demon!
Puppies bite, chew and pee in your house but they are not bad, vindictive little animals they are only doing what nature tells them to do. Management and training teaches them how to live in our world and coexist with us and bring so much joy to their humans!
Before you buy or adopt a puppy feel free to contact me for free puppy buying advice. So much of what goes wrong is the wrong breed for your lifestyle. All the love, training and knowledge in the world will not change the inherent breed traits we have bred dogs for a thousand years. Puppies from puppy mills will probably have issues since they learn from their mother and she’ll have issues. A good breeder will start a puppy with the right puppy culture before you even pick it up and all their dogs will be health tested. If you want to rescue a puppy please don’t support puppy mills or backyard breeders. Rescue a street dog or an accidental litter not a bred for money mutt and you will probably get a much nicer puppy. My contact is email@example.com and I’d be happy to give you advice on breed traits that will suit your family needs. If it saves one dog from being surrendered I’m happy to help.
Whether it’s a dog you have had for years off you just adopted a rescue you should love and enjoy your animal. So many dogs now are showing signs of anxiety and stress. Training really helps! So does a little dog physiology. Is your dog getting mental and physical stimulation? Is it getting the right type? Believe it or not walking your stressed out dog is making it worse, cortisol is not a good side effect of those stressed out walks. What are you feeding your dog? Lots of corn in your food and yes the recommended ones can have corn as one of the first 3 ingredients and since carbs convert to sugar unless you burn them off you are fighting nutrition. Does your dog use a crate or xpen? Is it happy and relaxed in there. Simple things like search can change your dog as they need to sniff. Sniff mats, Kongs, puzzles etc are simple ways to keep your dog busy. Your dog doesn’t need hours a day it needs the time you work with it to be productive. Understanding your dog, high drive or a coach potato will tell you what is needed.
BOARDING. A lot of my long term clients send their dogs to me when they travel. A lot of the time training starts because the dog is nervous, anxious, lacks confidence and it’s reactive in most unfamiliar environments. These dogs are a disaster in kennel environments so I started offering in home to these clients. This service is only offered to dogs I know so owners and I are on the same page and my own animals are safe.
