The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of animal trainers in the United States will grow by 15 percent between 2012 and 2020, faster than the average growth for all occupations. The BLS expects that demand for animal care services will grow over the next several years, and that job prospects will be good for animal care workers such as dog trainers.
“When I found Animal Behavior College I knew I had chosen the right program. It fit with my busy life and work schedule. I loved that I was able to work at home In my opinion, ABC is also very affordable.” – Fashawn Burgess
You may as well take advantage of this innocence, when they have no idea of what life is with no preconceived ideas, no habits formed or needing to be broken, to start training them to fit into the life that they will lead with the skills that they will need.
Responsible dog owners have control, and in having control they and their dog actually have more freedom. You can take your canine companion more places. The dog gets a much richer life accompanying you on wonderful adventures because they know how to behave in public.
One of the most common questions dog owners ask me is: “How can I stop my dog from doing (a specific bad behavior)?” My answer is almost always the same, no matter what the misbehavior is…. [read more]

Applebaum suggests attending obedience class every year or two — three years, at the most — and practicing school lessons at home. “It’s a positive activity, and a great way to bond with your dog,” he says.
Use real rewards Be sure to reward your dog with things she truly finds rewarding. Some dogs will happily work for dry kibble when training in your living room but ignore it if you’re training in the park. Because the park’s a more distracting environment, paying attention there is a harder job for your dog. Pay her accordingly by using a reward worth working for, like small pieces of chicken or cheese, or a chance to run off-leash at the dog park with her buddies. Also keep in mind that what your dog considers rewarding at any given time may change. If she’s just eaten a big meal, a scratch behind the démarrage entreprise or a game of tug might be most rewarding. If she hasn’t eaten in a while, she’ll probably work enthusiastically for tasty treats.
Methods of obedience training have changed dramatically in the past couple of decades. No longer is dominating the dog and punitive correction considered appropriate… indeed, we now know this is a bad way to teach a dog.
Explore the nature paths and common areas of beautiful Markham Park, while learning basic handling skills, such as loose leash walking, wait, come and polite greeting. Great exercise for you and your dog. We will hike through secluded wooded trails, as well as utilize common areas for opportunities to socialize your dog and work with distractions. A different path is taken each class. Some trails are rugged and you must wear appropriate shoes, and carry necessities such as water for you and your dog. Walking shoes and a back-pack are recommended. Dogs and puppies of all ages are welcome, but must have proof of rabies. Your dog must be friendly to people and other dogs. If your dog is not appropriate for this class, you may participate without him, and learn handling skills you can then implement at home. People without dogs are welcome. Children must be 12 years or older. The cost for this one-hour session is $20 per person (not per dog). Pre-registration by phone is required; call 954-349-5969.

Join Tinka, a dandy, sandy Golden Retriever, as she unexpectedly visits her owner at school and helps his class learn to read. Bright illustrations rendered in acrylic paint add to the excitement in this playful back-to-school story about a boy and his “loves-to-hear-a-book” dog.
Their eagerness to learn, playfulness, affectionate natures and their love of treats make Labrador Retrievers fantastic candidates for positive reinforcement dog training. Reward their good behaviors with a small treat, a game, or some cuddle time with you. You’ll find your Lab is soon offering you the behaviors you like with little prompting from you.
Many Labrador Retrievers are happiest and the most well-behaved when they have a job to do. Consider getting involved with a dog sport or training you Lab as a pet therapy dog. Keeping your Lab busy and active is sure to keep one of those famous Lab smiles on his face.
I place the blame for this on our field-trial system. Our retriever field trials were brought over from England in the early 1900s, along with the golden and Labrador retrievers. The trials were small and very representative of a day’s shooting, and the skills judged were those that had value to the hunting dog and hunter. The trials emphasized game-finding ability, softness of mouth and calmness of demeanor.
Reactive Dogs: For the safety of our staff and clients, we do not allow reactive or aggressive dogs in group classes. Reactive dogs will be removed from class and you will NOT receive a refund. Feel free to contact us and discuss other alternatives if your dog is reactive.
While your Labrador may have learned to sit beautifully in your kitchen, when you try and show off his new skill in your neighbour’s kitchen or whilst waiting outside school for your kids to emerge, your dog will probably stand there wagging his tail and looking stupid.
The staff was always wonderful. Our little pup came home exhausted and slept for the next two days (something worth it’s weight in gold when you have a puppy). Now we have a wonderfully socialized pet who gets along swimmingly with any dogs she meets (and I give dog school most of the credit for that).
Doggy day care is the best way to make sure your dog stays active while you’re at work. Instead of just taking a bathroom break at lunch, they can spend all day wrestling with friends, chasing balls, and practicing sprints. No couch potatoes here!

Towards the end of the series, there was to be a ‘Grand Final Best in Show Spectacular’ where they were to perform in front of a live audience. The most popular couple who was not eliminated would have won the ‘Best in Series’. Bootsie scored a perfect score from all three judges; sadly, no such thing happened. After only three episodes, Network Ten placed the show in ‘hiatus’, and it ended up never returning.
Set in Copper Creek, Michigan that I couldn’t find on a map (though I found many retailers and other entities with Copper Creek in their name), Sled Dog School engages anyone who loves animals, kids, adventure, and a touch of how will this resolve (or will it?) in a story that includes Matt, his younger sister Lily, a math class assignment, and a heartening outcome. At least in the past, Michigan was major Copper Country, and it feels as if Copper Creek may be in the northern part of the state, possibly in the Upper Peninsula. We get sled dogs teams in a rural residential area, parents raising free range kids, a family living off the grid. An outhouse, no electric, no central heating, and enough snow for dog teams? Yes!
