Small pieces of food or a favored toy can be used to motivate your puppy to perform most tasks. Provided the reward is sufficiently appealing, the puppy can be prompted to give the desired response by showing the puppy the reward, giving a command, and moving the reward to get the desired response. For example, food held up over the puppy’s nose and moved slowly backwards should get a ‘sit’ response; food drawn down to the floor should get a ‘down’ response; food brought back up should get a ‘stand’ response; food held out at a distance should get a ‘come’ response; and food held at your thigh as you walk should get the puppy to ‘heel or ‘follow’. By pairing a command phrase or word with each action, and giving the reward for each appropriate response, the puppy should soon learn the meaning of each command.
“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, http://rentabilisermapassion.org/french/consultant-seo-seo-comment-construire-une-entreprise-en-ligne-rentable-pratiquement-du-jour-au-lendemain-_developper-des-affaires-amway/ 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, Jerry was instrumental in helping me obtain my first dog trainer job…”

Socializing your dog is a very important part of any training. This helps to increase your dog’s confidence and desensitize them to everyday distractions, teaching them how to behave in public. Once you’ve mastered obedience commands at home, the next step is to apply your training in a social setting, teaching your dog how to behave around many “real life” distractions. A Behavior Consultant is present to help you every step of the way at our ongoing Socializing Groups. Group obedience is an integral part of the training process—we strongly urge our clients to participate in as many sessions as possible.
My husband and I highly recommend Training Tracks! We initially met Jeff through a local animal shelter and then started in-home training sessions with our first dog for some behavioral problems. Both Jeff and Mel are incredible trainers and are very personable. Their positive-reinforcement approach is very rewarding for both the person and the dog. When we got our second dog we continued with basic training classes at the West Chester location and were very happy with those as well. I would rec…
These programs are designed for the client who loves the idea of sending their furry kids off to bootcamp and having them return home with the equivalency of a masters degree in doggie manners. This gives the clients a huge jump start in being able to lead their dogs around severe distractions.
Dogs older than five months can attend basic obedience classes that include hand signals and commands, according to Pawnation.com. Housebreaking, problem jumping and inappropriate barking may also be covered.
Labradors were bred in a cool climate. They really do feel the heat, so if you live in a hot climate try to do everything you can to make your dog comfortable. Provide plenty of cold drinking water, shade and cool airflow.
My two yellow labs have been patients now for one year with Dr. Tony Meyers and Ginger. I want people to know how great this office is not only during the first visit but every single time you visit. One of my dogs has diabetes and is insulin dependent twice a day. It was a huge adjustment for m…

I give food twice- once in the morning and one at Lunch. Both time the Female very fast in eating and very eager and it is very excited when it see the food and try to grab from hand. Both understand the names.
We can drop him off as early as 7:30 and pick him up as late as 7. This is convenient for us for our crazy work schedules but also gives Ponyboy a good amount of time to get the wiggles out and be a kid. Ponyboy lives the life all day (Dog School posts pics on Facebook and Twitter throughout the day) and he comes home tuckered out. We are grateful that he is 1) getting plenty of exercise in school fooling around with others dogs and his favorite toy, the big purple ball, 2) is taken on a midday walk and 3) clocking sufficient networking time with other dogs…how else is he going to climb the social and professional ladder? And there is the added benefit that, even on days we do not take Ponyboy to the dog park, he is not bored and has completely stopped any destructive behavior in the house since starting at Dog School.
Dog School LA is excited to bring a new “school” of thought to southern California. Higher learning, for our pets with class. A place of structure, a place of safety, and a place for our dogs to thrive.
Please note Boarding and Holiday Camp is NOT available for dogs with Behavioral issues. Our boarding staff do not handle dogs with behavioral issues. If your dog has behavioral or aggression issues, we may still be able to board them, but they will have to check in under our Behavioral or Aggression rates. While we will do what we can to accommodate you, we cannot promise that. If you are in doubt please give us a call and chat with us about your dog.
