This is a tough one because she obviously has a learned, deep-seated fear of crates. Forcing her into one will only make the problem worse. You can try desensitizing her by feeding her in the open crate, playing with toys in it, and seeding it with treats, but this all takes time. If she is truly distressed, then a gentle sedative from the vet is going to be the most humane option.
We promote responsible pet ownership, offering group classes in basic manners to a wide variety of dog sports such as obedience, rally, agility and flyball. Our classes are organized and taught by volunteers with extensive experience as trainers, competitors, and judges.
Teaching your dog basic obedience like sit, wait and coming back when called gives them the freedom to do the things they like to do, like running off lead and coming with you to meet friends and family, while being safe and under control.
We come to you providing an invaluable service from the comfort of your own home. Your dog’s own territory is a non-adrenalized environment where he or she can be relaxed and more receptive to learning, providing for faster and more effective results, with none of the stress, distractions and learning impairment typical of a group-training environment.
Observational learning is the learning that occurs through observing the behavior of others. This form of learning does not need reinforcement to occur; instead, a model animal is required. While the model may not be intentionally trying to instill any particular behavior, many behaviors that are observed are remembered and imitated. The domestic dog is a social species and its social dependency makes it aware of the behavior of others, which contributes to its own behavior and learning abilities. There is, however, ongoing discussion about how much, and how, dogs can learn by interacting with each other and with people.
When it comes to obedience courses, it is essential to try before you buy. Every class is run differently, depending on the instructor as well as the institution that offers it. Many obedience courses will let you sit in on a class, or they may even offer a free lesson. If they do not allow you to sit in on the class, even without your dog, then that is a sign that you should probably pass because transparency is key for you and your pet. Take that as the opportunity see what is available and find the best course for your dog because it may take some time to find the right one.

Combine the “speak” with the “quiet” command. If you have a dog who naturally barks too much, you might not think teaching him to “speak” is going to help your situation. However, if you teach him to “speak,” then you can also teach him to “quiet.” While you may not need the “speak” for a dog who barks too much, you definitely need the “quiet.”

Our main reason for reaching out to Brent was because we have 2 cats and our black lab (Jaxon) wasn’t doing well them. Within 10 minutes of his first visit we had the the dog and cats commingling with no issues. We couldn’t believe it. Brent is also helping us fine tune some obedience training. Jaxon has most of his basic commands down but tends to get excited around new dogs/surroundings making recall difficult at times. We are quickly overcoming these issues as well. Brent truly is the real deal. Worth every penny.
At K-9 Companions, our service dog training program is different than most in that we involve the dog owner in the actual training. If the owner is not physically capable, an assistant who will be involved in the day-to-day care of the dog must be present for the training.
