Stoping all the Chatter - Non Verbal Communication
When training dogs, we minimize the amount of verbal commends we give. We do this in order to use leash pressure and body language to communicate what we want, rather than using words. By eliminating words We are also eliminating confusion. Yelling, screaming or verbal frustration creates nothing but conflict between your dog and yourself. The best way to communicate is through the leash and not your voice.
Using leash and pressure simultaneously is mechanically telling your dog what we want them to do, only after they understand the signals given by none verbal communication can we then implement a descriptive vocal command to the already established behavior.
Dog Training Methods
As dog handlers, we believe that there is more than one way of training. We believe in being flexible! With our dog training approach, each dog receives a plan catered to their needs.
We believe in being patient. Each dog is capable of learning, but they all learn at different speeds, just like people. We adjust to this and do not force anything on your dog that they are not ready for. Learning methods and techniques step by step and creating realistic and achievable goals are our number one priority.
Make it fun
Making the training experience fun for both your dog and you is a very important step in creating a bond and a strong relationship. With our dog training style you will learn to encourage your dog to preform the behavior you want, all while making it seem like your dog came up with it himself!
Your dog will always think that what he is doing is his idea, while really it is exactly what you want. This is unlike any other way of dog training and handling. Stop being frustrated with your dog and start having fun.
Do you offer Guarantees?
We must know and remember that dogs are not machines. Dogs motivations and reasons for behavior are influenced by their environment and continuous training. With that said, a trainer who understands dog psychology will not offer guarantees.
Trainers who offer guarantees often do so in terms of the dogs ability to learn within a given time frame. In many cases trainers use shock collars or prong collars to train your dog. We do not do this at Obedient K9! We work with your dog's behavioral psychology to achieve lasting results.
In many cases where guarantees are offered the behavior seems to be fixed in a short amount of time. What we see in cases like this are dogs who have had a specific behavior suppressed with a shock collar, not actually fixed. This is really just a bandaid and it will eventually fall off and with it the training!
Your dog is safe in my care !
We do not use or rely on shock collars to teach your dog
We do not believe in any physical correction like, hitting, punching, pinching your dog, ever!
Each session end and starts on a positive note
Positive behavior is always rewarded
No restriction on age or breed
