Many Options For Dog Training,
But Only One Good Choice

In-board training - The owner leaves the dog at a facility and a total stranger trains the
dog for a huge amount of money. The problems with this form of training are: The dog is
at the mercy of that trainer and the owner really has no idea what goes on behind closed
doors. If a trainer is in fact a good one, the dog will develop a great relationship with the
trainer,
NOT the owner! The owner tends not to get involved afterwards, therefore, not
understanding the training that's been done or
their dog's learning process needs which
aids them in future behavior modifications or training.  

Private Training - A trainer comes to the house to train the dog, again, for a huge  
amount of money. The problem is the dog does okay in it's own environment with no
distractions; however, the first time the owner tries to take the dog out around
distractions (a soccer game, a walk around the lake with kids, bikes, dogs, etc.), the dog's
adrenaline surges, he "glazes over" and becomes rambunctious and impulsive, not to
mention embarrassing!

Group Training - BINGO!  The owner and dog attend group class and have homework. It
is affordable, and absolutely offers the most benefits for the owner and the dog (including
problem dogs). Good group training
(without food) gives reliable obedience midst major
distractions which raises the dogs confidence and teaches him to bring his adrenaline
down, focus and be calm around heavy distractions. The owner gains invaluable
knowledge of their dog's learning process needs while
productively and respectfully
establishing relationship by working the dog through the learning process.
