I have rescued a 1 year old lab with NO training. She jumps, BAD, and she cannot walk on a leash and isn’t housetrained. Any suggestions? I love her personality and she has already adjusted to my children (except for the jumping)! Any suggestions on training an older puppy would be nice.
GROUPS: If you have a group, and would like to set up a group session, we require a minimum of 15 dogs. You must collect the fees, and pay one fee to us. Each client must still sign a release which can be done when they train. The group rate is $69 per dog, and applies to first time dogs as well as refresher dogs. We do not currently offer training off site.
Also, please note that because of volume, we are unable to respond to individual comments, although we do watch them in order to learn what issues and questions are most common so that we can produce content that fulfills your needs. You are welcome to share your own dog tips and behavior solutions among yourselves, however. Thank you for reading our articles and sharing your thoughts with the pack!
The program fee of $130 per dog includes six classes and there must be at least one adult handler per dog. The $130 fee does not include the park entrance fee of $1.50 per person. The dog student must be at least 5 months of age and have a current Broward County rabies tag. No aggressive dogs, please. Registration is required. See registration form.
I don’t know of the circumstances and it may have been out of your control, but your puppy should still be with their mother until 8 weeks of age, a couple of days earlier at a push, but 40 days is just way too soon and can result in severe health and development problems.
At Dogs Trust we have a mission; we want every dog to lead a happy life free from the threat from unnecessary destruction. It means that a lot of our work is caring for dogs at our rehoming centres – dogs that need a second chance in life. But it also means addressing the root causes of problems. Every year we receive thousands of calls from people asking us to take their dogs into our rehoming centres, and the biggest single reason they give is because of the dog’s behaviour. So to address this problem, we’ve created Dogs Trust Dog School.
“Jerry goes so much more in depth into principles and techniques than any training programs I have seen in my seven years of training and handling police canines. If you truly want to learn how to train and handle a police canine the right way I strongly recommend that you attend.”
Jimmy has done an amazing job with my 1-year-old mixed breed fur baby! She used to be afraid of her own shadow and wouldn’t go out the front door if their were kids playing outside or lawn mowers or anything, really. She heels like an absolute rock star now and we can even let her…
Pam is a great trainer. She is firm but not in a negative way. It is extremely hard work doing what she does and in addition to all the work she has nothing but love for animals. I board my dogs there as needed sometimes as long as a week or two and they always come back home happy and tired. E…
He is recommended by veterinarians and shelters throughout the Dallas area, and has earned a reputation for training and rehabilitating so-called “difficult” dogs including those with behavior problems such as fear and aggression.
Y’all Jimmy is amazing!! We have a 9 month old golden doodle and we choose to do the 10 day board and stay….”Emmet got to live with Jimmy” program. We were obviously nervous at first to let him leave the house for 10 days, but after seeing the results it was well worth it. Our…

They were spectacular. My wife and I moved to Philly for the summer and needed daily walks for our dog. We were able to set up with Philly Dog School with only one day’s notice, one of the easiest and most convenient processes I’ve ever had with a dog walker. All summer they were incredibly responsive and helpful as our dog adjusted to the new setting. They sent me a text after every walk to let me know how our dog did and if there were any issues. And when we wanted weekend walks on short notice they were flexible and helpful. Overall the best dog walkers I’ve ever worked with BY FAR. You cannot do better.
This 6-week introductory group class is designed to help you better communicate and train your older puppy or mature dog. Dogs will learn skills such as “leave it,” “wait” and walking on a loose leash. This class also addresses challenges such as jumping, barking and digging.
We probably need to look back to England for solutions. They still have the same field trials they had 80 years ago, still selectively breed for major traits and still get rid of dogs that lack a cooperative nature and predisposition toward trainability.
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.
I thought I had posted this review like a year ago when I wrote it but http://rentabilisermapassion.org/entreprise-rentable-demarrage-faible-entreprise-rentable-pour-commencer-en-jamaique/ somehow forgot to do so. An update from this review (my bulldog is almost 2 now ) is that he still loves going to Dog School and every time we day “Are you ready to go to Dog School?” he jumps up from the couch and runs to the front door aka he highly recommends this place! I’ll try to video tape it, it’s hilarious.
Judy and Mike have masters’ degrees in the education and business fields and have been teachers and corporate trainers for many years. Bark Busters provided a career change that involved their love for dogs and passion for teaching. “We have a strong belief that the family dog is an integral part of life. We want every human/dog pack-family to enjoy each other and thrive together. A good human/canine relationship depends on getting the leadership in the proper order. Once the humans and the dogs understand how this works and can communicate with each other, the rest is easy. The pack is secure and safe and a relationship of trust and respect develops with very little effort.”
Some trainers suggest playing tug-of-war with your puppy. The puppy learns that the game is fun, but is also controlled by you, the human at the other end of the toy. The fun will stop if the rules of the game aren’t honored, keeping everyone safe.
Some dog training methods are based on what makes the owner feel good, rather than what on actually makes sense to the dog. For example, “positive-only” dog training is a big fad right now. Now, treats can be great motivators for training Labrador Retrievers, but if your dog will only obey for a treat, then he is in charge of his obedience, not you. [read more]

My black lab pup is 3 months. She will poop outside when I remember to take her outside every 2 hours daytime. At night she is continent for 7 hrs in her crate BUT today she ate her own poop off the carpet. HELP. Why did she do that?
I really liked that on the first day they have you come early so that your dog can get used to the space and people in a one on one setting, rather than being overwhelmed by entering a space that is already full of dogs. They also gave us a call midday to tell us how Abbey was doing, which was very reassuring. The instagram updates are also a huge bonus for dog parents.
Play safely while you supervise training. Never play roughly with a puppy that bites. Rough play will only encourage this behavior and strongly establish it in the puppy’s mind. Never use your hands as toys. You should also closely watch children playing around or with the puppy. Kids are not equipped to train a puppy and injuries can happen.
My family is considering getting either one or two Labrador puppies in the near future while our older lab (Lucky, 13 years of age and healthy) is still around. She is well trained; knows basic commands like sit, stay, come, leave it, crate, etc. Her best aspects training wise is that she does not need to be leashed when taken for walks (we mainly go through the woods away from cars), she is excellent at communicating with minimum vocals that she needs to go outside and relieve herself or is thirsty(by nudging or staring towards the door/ sink). We were hoping that Lucky would be able to assist in the training process and kind of show them the ropes. Do you think that there would be some level of indirect learning passed on from my older dog to the puppies?
Essentially, dogs learn to respond properly to basic commands in obedience class–and humans learn how to properly give those commands. Dogs and owners will also learn how to communicate with each other, and how to avoid distractions or disturbances from the outside. No matter which method of dog training is used, it is necessary to be consistent and committed in order to train a dog. Also, it’s important that a pet owner understand their dog’s temperament and hereditary factors, and find a class and method that is appropriate.
Potty training isn’t most pet parents’ favorite job so it isn’t surprising that people want to know how to potty train a puppy fast, and are attracted to titles like “How to potty train a dog in 7 days”
The puppy is getting overexcited. Immediately when the puppy starts to bite, stop putting the collar on and walk away. Let him calm down, then try again. You can also add a firm “No”, before you leave, which offers him the chance to calm down first. Leave plenty of time when going out, so you don’t feel pressured into giving in. Eventually, the puppy will learn the fastest way to get his collar on is to be good.
