Dog behavior training is so much more than dog training! Dog behavior training combines a thorough understanding of dog behavior, canine learning theory, and hands-on dog training methods in order to create lasting behavior change. This is why our training methods have been referred by vets for over 26 years. It is applicable to all sorts of training needs, but is mandatory for the resolution of dog behavior problems such as aggression and anxiety.
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 International School for Dog Trainers specializes in Mentoring and Shadowing courses in Basic Dog Training. The School in addition provides e-collar training short courses (E-Touch) for dog trainers, both at their center in Florida and other locations as requested. It also runs courses in retrieving and gundog work, both for spaniels and retrievers. 407 469-5583
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.
If the pup continually makes mistakes, then either you aren’t communicating clearly with the dog or he is tired and has lost concentration. Either way, stop and reassess the situation. If necessary, bring the session to an end (on a positive note) and try again later.
Our dog training certification program is available in all 50 U.S. states and every Canadian province. We’re able to offer students in these locations hands-on training due to our growing network of pet industry professionals.
The parents of our companion puppies are OFA certified for hips. Your new pup will be current on the following: Rabies, Distemper combo (including Leptospirosis), Lyme, Bordetella, Heartworm preventative, and flea/tick protection. Our companion dog training covers behavior and social skills with people and other dogs, crate training, and obedience. The obedience training covers all commands on and off-leash. Training starts when our labs are 8 weeks old. They go through a thorough training regiment 6 days a week, and graduate the family companion program at around 6 months of age, when they will be ready to interface with their new owners. Listed below are the commands that we cover.
These programs are designed for the trainers to show the client how to train their own dogs. These success based programs give the client the tools necessary to be able to lead their dog through the challenges with which most dog owners struggle.
Formal dog training has traditionally been delayed until 6 months of age. Actually, this juvenile stage is a very poor time to start. The dog is learning from every experience and delaying training means missed opportunities for the dog to learn how you would like him to behave. During the juvenile stage, the dog is beginning to solidify adult behavioral patterns and progresses through fear periods. Behaviors learned in puppyhood may need to be changed. In addition, anything that has already been learned or trained incorrectly will need to be undone and re-taught. Puppies are capable of learning much from an early age.
Group classes, puppy classes for dogs starting at 8 weeks of age, Canine Good Citizen training and testing, In-home consultations; day training programs; reactive dog consultations; we can help you build the foundation for a great family dog.
“While attending the school, my life changed. I fell in love with the training of dogs in all areas; protection work, detection work, man trailing, obedience, etc. I knew that it was exactly what I wanted to do with my life. Jerry Bradshaw and his staff made the whole experience incredible for me, someone who had never owned a dog before, plunging head first into the training of these amazing animals. The staff was knowledgeable, courteous and professional and made sure I got proper instruction and lots of hands on time in all areas of training. While attending the school, I forged friendships that will remain forever in my life and I was even able to purchase my first dog, a female Belgian Malinois, from Jerry while I was there. Upon graduation after 3 months, idée business en ligne was instrumental in helping me obtain my first dog trainer job…”

Our Puppy Class is for pups 9 weeks through 5 months old. The puppy owner learns how to use positive methods to teach the puppy good manners and to build a bond of love and respect. The pup is socialized with other puppies and people and taught exercises to help them gain confidence when meeting new situations and objects. The puppy will learn to come when called, sit, lie down, stand, and not pull on the leash while walking. They are also taught to settle down, be touched and be examined by both the owner and a stranger. The instructor leads discussions on Jumping Up, Home Training Problems, Nutrition, Grooming, Crate Training, Spay/Neutering and other subjects to help the puppy’s family become responsible pet owners. Puppies are also taught the meaning of “Off”, to remove themselves from furniture, etc. Instructions for teaching some tricks (roll over, etc.) are included to give the puppy and handler additional “training fun” and to let the dog “show off”. A Training Handbook is issued to each student.
“It’s important to remember that puppies are like little kids. And like little kids, they’re uncoordinated, easily distracted, and gentle,” says Steven Applebaum, president and director of Animal Behavioral College, a school in Northridge, Calif., that trains dog trainers via the Web and externships at shelters throughout the U.S.
We are now masking with training the major trait that we spent a hundred years developing through selective breeding—namely, delivery to hand with a soft mouth. If we take a hard-mouthed dog and put him through the force-fetch program so that he delivers gently to hand, then he will behave like a great dog. We may even make him a field champion through superior training. However, his puppies will still have that genetic tendency toward hard mouth, and we will be going backwards in the selective-breeding process.
We offer all levels of dog training classes during the day, in the evening, and on Saturday. Please check our Class Schedule link for upcoming classes. We offer specialty classes such as Canine Good Citizen, agility, tricks, and scent detection. Please call or e-mail us with any training questions, and to schedule day school, a group class, or a private lesson. We hope to have the privilege of training with you and your dog soon. Thank you.

Training a labrador puppy is an essential and rewarding experience for both you and your puppy. The intelligence and eager to please nature of the Labrador make them a highly trainable breed – they are gifted and willing students. From puppy house training right through to advanced obedience training the Labrador is at the head of the class.
Most of the time we keep him in his crate which is large enough for him to stand and can easily stress his legs. Only for giving him food and potty we take him out and sometimes for playing with him till he gets exhausted and want to rest. Rest of the time he lives in the crate only and he is comfortable in it.”
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.
The foundation of Tarheel Canine’s Training System is an understanding of behavior and canine temperament which is explained in Tarheel Canine’s proprietary training manual and Jerry Bradshaw’s book, Controlled Aggression published by Lulu Press (http://www.lulu.com/content/2317473), both are provided to students with their equipment upon enrollment, as well as lectures which cover all key areas of training in the Tarheel Canine Training System. Through extensive practical work and application of the theory we then show the student when and where to apply the use of key training equipment. This includes using leashes, training collars, long lines, reward toys, modern electronic training collars (in both low level stimulation and the Tarheel System), application of BSD™ Behavior Shaping Devices for training detector dogs for narcotics and explosives detection, how to use various sleeves and grip training equipment including bite suits for sport, Personal Protection and Police K9 Training.
Training classes for young puppies are also an excellent way to socialize your new puppy to a variety of people, dogs, and other stimuli in a controlled environment. In addition, you will learn how to prevent problems before they can begin, or deal with them as they emerge, rather than having to find a way to correct problems that have already developed. Your puppy might also make some new friends of the same age. You could then visit these friends (or vice versa) with your puppy for social play and exercise sessions. Since the primary socialization period for dogs ends by 3 months of age, puppy socialization classes are most valuable for puppies 8 weeks of age and older. If all puppies in the class have had initial vaccinations, are healthy and parasite free, the health risks are low and the potential benefits are enormous. Discuss the location of classes in your area and when to start them with your veterinarian.
Electric shock collars are still #shockinglylegal in England. Only Westminster has the power to ban sales of shock collars – which can shock a dog for up to 11 …seconds – so we’re asking for your support to ask your MP to #banshockcollars.
