Our positive dog training methods are pain-free, treat-free, and clicker-free. We DO NOT use shock collars, spray collars or pronged collars. We will teach you a system of communication your dog already knows, based on canine communication and pack behavior. You will learn how to use your body language and voice tones to get your dog to focus and respect you. You can learn to teach your dog behaviors that are and are not acceptable, both on and off leash, at your home, at the park or virtually anywhere.
Training Tracks did wonders for our energetic blue heeler mix. She went from a timid, excitable puppy to a well-behaved dog with confidence. Mel and Jeff taught us how to bring out the best in our dog. We had no idea how much potential she had! As owners, we were taught how to solve behavior problems by breaking down training into mini-steps. Our dog absolutely loved the classes, and we’re not sure who learned more, she or us!

“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!”
Another dog is therefore a ‘distraction’ against which you must ‘proof’ your ‘recall’ and other trained skills. But the power of this or any other distraction will vary according to the activity level, and proximity of the other dog.
Training is a wonderful way to engage the pup’s brain and also to have him come to trust you. In addition, a well-trained dog is better able to go for long walks and run off leash, safe in the knowledge that he will come back to you.

What happens during the initial consult? During the intitial consult we discuss your dogs behavior(s), your goals, and begin to come up with a training plan. Depending on the complexity of the behavior, hands on training may or may not start during this session. Not only do we work with your dog, but we also give you the tools you need in order to get positive results while training the dog yourself. How many sessions will my dog need? The number of sessions needed will vary greatly, depending on your dogs current level of training, your dogs personality, and how long your dog has been practicing the behavior. This will be discussed during the initial consultation. What type of training methods do you use? We use a humane heirarchy to determine the best possible technique for solving your dogs behavior problems. This means we always start with positive training techniques, and adjust from there as needed to match your dogs temperament and the behavior issue at hand. Your dogs physical and emotional well-being are always our priority. Will I need to work with my dog between lessons? The more you work with your dog between lessons, the faster your dogs progress will be. You must be consistent with your dog in order to achieve success. If you feel like you don’t have the time to work with your dog regularly, ask us about our In Home Bootcamp or Board & Train programs. What if my dog doesn’t improve? We have many years experience in solving behavior problems, including some really unusual ones. We are very successful, but if for some reason we are unable to help you, we will refer you to someone who can!

Once your dog begins to recognize you as the leader, it is important to let him know what kind of behavior is expected of him. So, pat your pup whenever he does something good and ignore his tantrums. Praise your Lab whenever he obeys your commands and executes them well, or does something to make you happy. This will encourage him and in the long run, he will be more devoted to you. Also, when your dog makes mistakes, you should be patient. Punishing him will take you nowhere and will only result in your Lab turning aggressive.
