My philosophy at Happy Tails Dog School centers around providing the best of Denver dog training to you and your beloved dog.

Relationship-based training at Happy Tails is the pathway to a full, happy life for you with your dog. I provide outstanding dog obedience instruction, training support, and customer service.

There are a few different models that are used when having a dog work in a school setting. The majority of this website was built using the model where the school professional is also the handler and the animal works primarily out of the same building. Copper has additional training beyond basic therapy dog courses that is specific to working in a public school. He works at the school 3 days a week. I like this model because I can educate all the people in the building about behavior expectations when Copper is working. I also know the students that Copper works with. There is more information about this under the How to Get Started tab.
But people, just like dogs, can be unpredictable. And sometimes the bravest thing a person can do is admit they need help. Like Terry Lynn Johnson’s popular Ice Dogs, Sled Dog School is about overcoming adversity, finding your strengths, and your friends, and following your passions.
As the franchise owner and head trainer of Sit Means Sit Knoxville I have owned and loved dogs my entire life. In 2004 I started training them in the Sit Means Sit system. When I first started as a client of Sit Means Sit Denver CO I had an aggressive Chocolate Labrador who had been through two other “professional” trainers. Other trainers couldn’t help us, which fortunately then led us to Dave Skoletsky and Sit Means Sit.
Training your Labrador the right way, can help you in the long run, as it helps to strengthen the bond between you and your pet. Hope the tips discussed in this article, will help turn your pet Lab into your best friend, forever!
RD is amazing! Seriously, best dog trainer I’ve ever worked with! And there has been a few. When my girlfriend told me she booked an appointment for our dog troubles I was skeptical, to say the least…. She arrived on time, she introduced herself and got immediately to work. I have a German Shepherd that has aggression issues and a few others. We put our dog in his kennel prior to her arrival. She asked us to exit the room so there were no extra energies (fear from us) present. Within five minutes our dog had silenced his disapproval of her presence in ‘his’ house and she invited us back into the room. To our amazement, our dog was out of his kennel, and leashed by her side. This was shocking! I never would’ve believed it if I wasn’t there as a witness. She diagnosed our dog, showed us how to work him past his issues and take control of our household again. Her rates are affordable, she’s incredibly intelligent and a downright cool person to work with. I highly, highly, highly recommend giving her a chance to earn your business! You won’t regret it.

I’ve been training dogs and horses since we moved to Tennessee when I was in 4th grade. I was self taught in my animal training adventures – meaning lots of trial and error – until after I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology in 2007 from The University of the South. My first job after college was working on a horse breeding farm where I studied several professional methods of horse training to train the young ones up in the manner desired by our clients.
The expert judges on Celebrity Dog School were Steve Austin, who is Australia’s premier dog trainer, and Dr Julie Summerfield, who is a qualified veterinarian and is currently the resident vet in the program 9am with David and Kim.

RD was great. I was really nervous about the awkwardness of having a stranger come in and make my sweet little guy anxious. But she was really nice and a total professional. There was no weirdness at …all beyond the first couple of minutes, and she gave me some super helpful tips to help encourage better behaviors in my dog when we are faced with challenges/distractions while walking. She even used her time to turn our meeting into an impromptu training session and we got in some walking practice on that same day. Thanks so much and we will definitely be scheduling again soon! �� See More
I have two accounts, one account allows me to swipe from right to left on my read globe notification and hide it, but my other account doesn’t allow it. Some of my friends can do it and some can’t, I have gone through all the settings and tried to find where to change it but I can’t find it?

First of all, thank you very much for creating this equally helpful and accommodating website. I’m planning to get a puppy (Golden retriever) on February the 10th (2 months would have elapsed since he was born) and I have a few questions. Can I get him to a vet for a quick checkup while bringing him home? (The ride isn’t that long; 15 minutes max.) And should I put him in crate from the very first night? And if I do, at what intervals should I get him out in the night to go potty? What if he did it inside the crate during the night? I understood that night crating is different from day crating. So should can I start crate training him during the very next day?
Also, she looks to me as her main caregiver (literally follows me everywhere)… do you have any tips on ways I could introduce the puppies to her? I’m expecting she will have some initial feelings of resentment towards them and be territorial since she has been the only dog we have had, so I’d like to try aid this transition as best I can. Although in the end I feel like a lot of it will be them feeling each other out. Any other advice you could give on this situation would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!
3. I was concerned about dogs beating the shit out of my dog..he’s a lover not a fighter! He just got bitch slapped by a 12 week old pug at the dog park..man she was sassy. Anyway, I was concerned because some dogs don’t like his smushed face/colorful bow ties and go after him. I haven’t found any nicks, scabs, or black eyes so that’s always a good sign!
The average cost of in-home training ranges from $75 to $125, no matter where you live. You might find lower prices if you live in a small town or if you find a new trainer, and you also may have to pay more for an experienced trainer. Some trainers offer discounts if you rescue your dog, but many trainers also charge more for aggression issues.
We have used Dog School for the past 7 years – first in its original location on 11th Street, and now that we have moved, in its South Street location. When we moved last year, I was most upset that I couldn’t take my dogs to dog school anymore so I was absolutely thrilled when they opened the South Street outpost. I can’t say enough good things about this business. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Jamie, Dan, Ryan, and Gary and the rest of the crew. We take both of our pups, and they always come back exhausted and happy. They usually are tired out for 2 days after daycare which I am always thankful for. The convenient hours, location, and friendly staff make dog school what it is. I totally trust them with my dogs and I know that they are under close supervision all day so I don’t have to worry!
Equipment — Buckle collar (instructors will discuss other types of training collars and help make collar selection best suited to handler/dog). Six-foot leash (of cotton web, nylon web, or leather is recommended and 1/2 or 5/8 inch width is easiest to handle). No chain leashes or harnesses. Halti type head collars are permissible.
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.
Mike was patient, knowledgeable and kind with our two giant, ill-behaved dogs. We just had a baby and he worked with us on many things such as not rushing the door when someone rings the doorbell, avoiding baby toys, and coming when called. He is a lifesaver!Melinda G.January 10 2018

“In mid-Aug this year, I got a 44 days old male fawn lab pup, he was weighing 2.5 Kg at that time. From day one my pup is active and having his food 3 times a day. He is very active, bites, eats and licks everything which reaches his mouth. Probably because of this in 2nd week of bringing him home he had diarrhea and it was a nightmare for me for a week. We immediately took him to vet and he was completely fine in a week.
Our dog walkers make life as easy as possible for you. Besides walks, they’ll take your dog to daycare, the vet or groomer, and even pick up dog food for you. Plus, you get permanent time slots so there’s no need to worry about scheduling each week.
