Our students have an opportunity to work with all types of dogs during their attendance in one of our programs. We have a http://rentabilisermapassion.org/french/blueprint-de-boite-de-reception-en-direct-de-developper-un-modele-en-affaires/ of pet and working dogs available, including dogs from our Second Chance Program. Students are allowed to bring up to two (2) dogs with them during their stay and they can integrate their personal dogs into their training program. You are not required to bring a dog with you as we will have many dogs for you to train and work with while you are here. Students are also not required to clean kennels or participate in any type of “work detail program” or “leadership program” during their stay. We have a full kennel staff that maintains our kennel facilities, daily.
The best result is a dog that is obedient, calm, trusting, and happy. The best method is one that results in an obedient, calm, trusting, and happy dog. Often, lack of competence, experience. and proven results is obscured in discussion about methods and the ‘latest science.’ You’ll hear phrases like “purely positive”, and “rewards based” and even “force free”. Don’t be misled. If the trainer is competent, he or she will be happy to prove it by showing you photos, videos and/or dogs they’ve trained – in real world situations and environments. A well trained dog shouldn’t need treats or gadgets to gain his attention and cooperation. In fact, he shouldn’t even need a leash. Just look at the calm, happy, obedient dogs in our photos and dog training videos. Contact us today and begin the awesome journey to a genuinely loving, respectful and cooperative relationship with your best buddy. See the results for yourself. If you’re looking for the best dog training and the best dog trainers in RI and throughout New England, you’ve come to the right place.
My experience with Animal Assisted Therapy started in 2009 when I partnered with Colorado State University and HABIC (Human Animal Bond in Colorado) in a graduate level research project. We had one HABIC team work with a student. That student blossomed and I was convinced that I needed to learn more. I spent a significant portion of time on the internet and decided to adopt a dog that could potentially come to work at school. It was 18 months later that Copper first entered our building. I hope the information on this site shortens the entry time for other professionals interested in this modality and provides best practices to those of use who are breaking ground with our own programs.

The Academy is dedicated to educating both people and canines. Our dog training programs include everything from housebreaking, etiquette, and behavior modification, through obedience training and protection training services.
The dog is taught to ‘sit’ in fairly undemanding conditions (a quiet back yard for example) then taken into much more distracting and tempting conditions where his obedience is deliberately ‘challenged’.
We specialize in resolving dog behavior problems – everything from a lack of manners, to hyperactivity, to nervous/fearful behavior, to anxiety and aggression. When you work with us, you’ll learn practical methods to communicate with your dog and guide him/her to better behavior choices. Your dog will learn better doggie manners, a thorough understanding of basic obedience commands, and how to consistently make good behavior choices!
“Rachel was very patient in explaining techniques. I was amazed to see my 3 year old Lab finally walk with a loose leash. I have wanted to have my dog walk without a prong collar. The voice command Rachel taught me worked. I have already recommended Rachel – my trainer put me at ease when I was anxious about this new experience!”

Early in the 19th century, the Earl of Malmesbury reputedly saw one of the dogs of this type and had it imported; in 1830, the noted British sportsman Colonel Hawker referred to the Lab as “the best for any kind of shooting…generally black and no bigger than a Pointer, very fine in legs, with short, smooth hair…is extremely quick running, swimming, and fighting…and their sense of smell is hardly to be credited.”
