There aren’t possibly enough good things to be said about Dog School. I rescued a hot mess of an Australian Cattle Dog who had more energy than any ten dogs could possibly need… and unfortunately almost no training or socialization. Dog School has been an invaluable resource in both saving my own sanity (giving this ball of energy a fun place to be on days when I can’t provide that as much as I’d like- she is always TIRED OUT at the end of the day!) and introducing her to other wonderful dogs that she can safely play with and make friends. I’ve had no worries about her safety- the staff is wonderful about working with her and being attentive to how she’s doing. It’s been about a year and I’m positive that Dog School has been a critical part of the progress she’s made.
I. Love. Dog School. Our pup, Ponyboy, has been with Dog School for almost a year, beginning at the Pine Street location and now at this location. And there is no doubt that Dog School’s services, and general awesomeness, have immeasurably enhanced our family’s life.

So if the dog in question is sitting quietly next to his owner on the far side of a field, that would be a far less powerful distraction than the dog which is racing around chasing a frisby twenty yards away.

Marsha was incredible. I didn’t think my bichon could be cured of his jumping and barking and toileting in the house. After explaining the methods to me we did an intervention and I could see the immediate change in his behavior. Now I can have people visit my home!
Little and often is best. You should hold formal training session for 10 – 15 minutes twice a day. However, training should not be limited to only during these times. Take the opportunities that arise during the day to enforce his learning. Examples include expecting the pup to sit before his meal or before his collar and leash are put on.
After a few weeks you will find that when you say this word, your puppy will start to feel the urge to empty himself. This is because the word has become associated in his mind with the act of going to the toilet.

It sounds like your wife and son are regarded differently by the dog. You need to figure out what it is that’s being done differently, and then correct this. For example, do your wife or son squeal when the dog mouths them (which makes them sound like squeaky toys and is very exciting to the Sprocker). Do you and the older son have deep voices and are firmer with the pup? Who walks the dog? Who feeds the dog? You need a root and branch review of the management of the dog so that everyone plays an equal part and is equally respected by the dog.

Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn’t listening to you? Maybe you’re simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Hold a treat in front of pup’s nose. Slowly raise the treat over and behind his head so that when he follows it, his bottom drops to the ground. Say “Sit” immediately as this happens, and give the reward.
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.

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.
Excellent course at Dogs Trust, Nevendon, Essex, that Alfie the Brave balked at attending. But the instructors were fabulous. Kind, patient, and explaining everything clearly. Thanks a million. Worth …every penny and then some xx See More

Any retrieving dog is bred to put everything possible it can in their mouth. And they love picking up rocks. Each time you catch your dog with a rock in its mouth, you can teach it “Drop”, which will come in handy with a multitude of things later. Also, don’t worry to much about him getting sick. Unless it’s a giant rock, or something toxic, dogs bellys are really acidic and can break down pretty much anything. And if they don’t you’re more than likely to just see it in their poop.
The Instructors will set up unique courses each week for teams to run and work on all four elements (weather permitted for exteriors and vehicles) at all levels.
