All Dog training comes in many different forms. Check out our many options.

Of all Dog Training, teaching your dog to come is one of the most important lessons they will learn. It can keep them safe in potentially dangerous situations. “Make it a fun time” when your dog comes when called. Begin by training your dog to come when called by using a leash. Back away from your dog while, at the same time, telling her to “come!” Only give the command once, but do it with enthusiasm. Keep your body language relaxed and open. You can show your dog a treat to encourage her to head your way. Once she starts towards you, say “good girl!” (or click) and reward her with a treat. Over time, you can gradually increase the distance between you and your dog, and start practicing in a variety of situations.

Teaching your dog to stay is also one of the most important lessons your dog training should include. It’s a command that can keep her/him safe from harm. Some trainers use the “Three D’s of Training”, Distance, Duration, Distraction. Their recommendation is as follows: Start up close to your dog, placing her in a sit or down position. Hold a hand out toward and say “stay.” After a moment, reward her. Repeat this until your dog gets the idea that she’ll get a treat if she holds her sit or down position. Over several training sessions, increase your distance from your dog and the duration before you release her, and introduce distractions to test her resolve.

Other forms of dog training include, house breaking, potty training, teaching tricks, obedience training and etc. Find all methods within our links.
