The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) is one such certifying organization, and it is generally considered the authority in the field.

This place is great. We brought our puppy in last week since I was going away for a conference, and he absolutely loved it. He couldn’t wait to go back on Wednesday. And he came back to us so tired and happy! We are fortunate that our pup loves other dogs and people, but even so, a lot of credit is due to Dog School. They keep safe clean conditions for the dogs and constantly supervise.Their hours and locations are really convenient for us. We feel confident in their team and will gladly return!
There are several common methods of dog training, including classical conditioning, operant-conditioning training (encompassing positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement training), dominance-based training, clicker training, and electronic training. Classical conditioning dates back to Pavlov – it means learning through association. If one thing consistently leads to another, a dog will associate the first with the second. The long-term result is to create habitual behaviors. Operant conditioning can be split into two sub-categories: positive reinforcement, where a dog is rewarded for good behavior, and negative, where a dog experiences consequences for bad behavior. The long-term result creates a dynamic where a dog will try new environments or behaviors due to owner prompts. Clicker training is a very popular sub-category of operant conditioning, where a dog is first trained with treats and corresponding “click” noise, and then gradually weaned to do the same processes for fewer treats but the same amount of clicks. Dominance-based training is a controversial method that is modeled around the “Alpha dog” hierarchy model, where one creature leads a pack. However, though dominance training has many naysayers, it is the precursor of the iconic “Dog Whisperer” method popularized by Cesar Millan.

I can’t rave about Philly Dog School enough. They are friendly and accommodating and most of all genuinely love all the dogs they look after everyday. Also, they don’t require prior reservations, which some daycares do. You just show up, drop your pooch off, and pick him up nice and tired!

When teaching new skills, keep training sessions short and sweet Like kids, dogs don’t have long attention spans. There’s no hard-and-fast rule, but an ideal average training session should last 15 minutes or less. Within that session, you can work on one skill or switch between a few different skills. To keep things interesting, try doing 5 to 15 repetitions of one behavior and then doing 5 to 15 repetitions of another behavior. You can also practice new skills and keep old ones polished by doing single repetitions at convenient times throughout the day. For example, before giving your dog a tasty new chew bone, ask her to sit or lie down to earn it.
Responsible dog owners have control, and in having control they and their dog actually have more freedom. You can take your canine companion more places. The dog gets a much richer life accompanying you on wonderful adventures because they know how to behave in public.
No Labrador obedience training is complete and successful without positive reinforcements. These are the praises, kind words and treats you give your Labs if he does the right thing. While you teach your dog how to sit or stand, commend him with a good praise like “Good dog”, along with a tap on his head and a treat. This will encourage him to do more training and to do the right thing every time the same command is implemented.
