Group Class dog training is a great way for owners to develop obedience skills while socializing their dog with new people and dogs. Group classes can also be an excellent choice for owners looking for something fun to do with their dogs or for owners looking to challenge their dogs with something new. We offer American Kennel Club S.T.A.R. Puppy classes that are designed to promote responsible dog ownership and and develop good training habits and social skills at an early age. We have Basic (on-leash) and Advanced (off-leash) classes for owners looking for more obedience and control with their dogs. Our agility, dog tricks, therapy dog, treibball, and other group dog training classes are intended for those who are looking to do more with their dogs. Our classes meet once per week for 6 to 7 weeks and start at $129 for a series of classes. Learn more about our Group Class Dog Training.
After these classes are completed, advanced and intermediate training classes are the next progression. These training classes work on increasing the distractions, duration of the learned behavior and distance away from the owner that the dog can successfully follow commands. These classes ensure that you dog is well behaved in social situations, among other dogs and people.
The best way to do this is to include it in your vocabulary lessons and your respect lessons. If you teach words and respect properly, acceptance of being handled will come naturally – they go “hand-in-hand”, so to speak!
Set a routine. Dogs are creatures of habit. By feeding your dog at the same time each day and offering regularly spaced walks and outside potty breaks, you can condition her to “go” at set times each day.

Pet owners can ask to sit in on a dog obedience training session to see if it’s right for their dogs. When they feel comfortable with the trainer and notice other pet owners enjoying the training class, they will have a better idea of how their money will be spent.
Assess whether the dog is socialized and confident in a range of social situations. The dog needs to be confident in a range of situations and with all types of people. If it is anxious or fearful in certain situations this could place you in harms way. A fearful dog exhibits introverts body language such as cowering, averting his eyes, slinking in a submissive posture, holding his tail between his legs.
“Training doesn’t have to be cruel and punishment-oriented,” Sylvia-Stasiewicz says. “If you train using positive reinforcement, you’ll get a trained dog and you will maintain the spirit of that dog.”

Private training can address problem behaviors, teach basic obedience issues, help you adjust to a new dog in your home or to prepare for the arrival of a new baby or introducing a dog to children or to another dog already in your home. Private sessions can be used in conjunction with group classes to train your dog for specific issues and for socialization and general obedience issues. Typical common dog behavior problems can be addressed in one or two private sessions. This depends of course on specific issues, and how much time the owner invests in the follow-up plan. No two dogs, owners and environments are the same, so for each private session, a custom plan is determined to meet the customer’s needs and goals.

You can’t be with your puppy every second of the day and your puppy does need lots of rest, usually around 16 hours a day. When you and your puppy need a break, send your puppy to bed somewhere that will limit any roaming accidents. For puppies who love to chew things like power cords, this is a safety precaution that can stop your dog getting into mischief when you can’t watch them.

Coming when called is one of the most important skills for your dog to have on lock, because it can keep her safe in potentially dangerous situations. Best Friends Animal Society suggests that you “make it a party” every time your dog comes when calls. No matter what they’re leaving behind, coming to you should be the best thing that happens to them all day!
When your dog begins to exhibit a problem behavior, try to work on correcting it right away. The longer you let it go on, the harder it will be to correct it. Some problem behaviors get to the point where they are almost impossible for the average owner to handle. If you think your dog may need the kind of help that you can’t give him, don’t hesitate to seek the help of a professional trainer.
