Our Training Methods


“In every class, the training methods are positive. Praise and petting are tools people always have on hand, and training treats are a fun and easy way to help accelerate learning.” Our approach is to reward desirable behaviors and use management techniques and the withdrawal of attention to prevent or extinguish behaviors we don’t want. We will work to make owners aware of their unintentional reinforcement of undesirable behaviors and the need to reinforce preferred behaviors that the dog offers. Owners are encouraged to find ways to work on modifying these behaviors throughout the day – not just during formal training sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions


+ How do I stop my puppy from crying in the crate at night?

The ONLY way to stop the barking in the crate is to ignore it! It can be very difficult to do, but it is necessary. Anything you say to the puppy; good or bad, the pup is getting the attention he/she is craving, in turn, making the behavior worse. Once you have complete quiet, let the puppy out of the crate. In time, your puppy will learn.

+ So is it miracle training?

While it seems miraculous, you do have to play your part too, we provide the bricks and build the foundations and walls, if you don’t provide the mortar in the shape of homework and consistency, the walls will start to fall again. If however you stick to the simple homework for 3-4 weeks you’ll have a permanent structure that will last the years!n that quiet is what gets him/her out.

+ Should I crate train my new puppy?

A crate is a helpful training tool. A crate offers a safe place for your puppy, and keeps your carpet safe as well! Any time your eyes are not literally on the puppy, he or she should be in the crate. This helps cut down on chewing issues as well as potty ‘accidents’ around the house. Too much freedom for a puppy who isn’t fully trained causes many undesirable behaviors and habits to form.

+ How should I correct my puppy for a housebreaking accident?

A puppy must always be caught ‘in the act’ for the correction to make sense to the puppy. Since puppies learn by Immediate Association, you must see the start of the behavior in order to correct it. Correction ‘after the fact’ only confuses the puppy. Simply clap you hands and use an urgent, but not harsh, ‘No!’ and take your puppy to the appropriate potty location and give the ‘go potty’ command. Praise when the puppy goes potty.

+ What training tools do I need?

We ask that all clients have a six-foot leash, a collar, and treats on hand.
