At Starmark Academy, you have the benefit of being immersed in a training environment-something that you simply do not have with home study courses. Here you will receive supervised hands-on learning with immediate feedback from your instructors. Understanding that not all dogs are alike, we teach multiple methods to equip you to handle a variety of training issues. You will also have the opportunity to work with rescue dogs, giving you real-world experience with dogs of varying temperaments. We also teach you how to instruct and work with people, not just dogs, so you will be more confident when working with future clients. Our well-rounded approach thoroughly prepares you for a future career in professional dog training.
The truth is that many ‘professional dog trainers’ don’t know much more about training dogs than you do … otherwise they would be proudly showing you the results of their work. When you have problems with your dog, you need to get those problems solved so you can move on with your life. You want a trainer that can show you how to get it done right. A trainer who can show you how to get it done quickly, and with competence as well as compassion. With effective and respectful training. Someone with experience solving the problem you are having with your dog. This is especially true if you are in need of aggressive dog training. Testimonials are great, and pictures of playing puppies are cute. But they don’t prove competence. Results do.
All classes take place in our indoor training facility. Our team offers more than 30 years of experience in training you and your pet in a friendly environment. We have a good reputation in our local community with many repeat customers.
The advantage of ‘mocking up’ a fake scenario, rather than waiting to stumble across real live situations, is that it enables you to ‘set the dog up to win’, and to control the consequences of his actions. You can read more about this strategy in this article: Faking It!

Anybody who is involved in the care of your dog is encouraged to come along to class, including children. Please bear in mind that your coaches will be talking to the class on a group level to teach you valuable key messages about behaviour, so it is important that anybody attending is able to comment créer une quietly (if young children are attending it could be a good idea to bring something to keep them occupied with at these times). Let your coach know if you have any special requirements or will have more than 3 people attending with your dog, so that they can prepare and make sure there is enough space. To make sure you can concentrate on training your puppy, we would ask that you leave any other pets (including other dogs) at home.
We took a wrong turn somewhere in the evolution of training and now go about the retrieving and steadying processes in a totally illogical manner. We take a young dog and give him hundreds of retrieves with no restraint. For the first thousand retrieves, we encourage the dog to take off at will after the falling dummy. Then, after we have him well trained to break, we change the rules and decide to make him steady—which requires a certain amount of punishment to counteract the breaking behavior we have just trained.
The median yearly pay for animal trainers in the United States was $25,270 in 2012. The lowest ten percent of earners in this field made less than $17,580 and the top ten percent made more than $49,840 that year.
Use these training tasks as you integrate the puppy into your life. For example, ask your puppy to “sit” prior to receiving her food, “sit” before you let her in or out the door, and “sit” before you pet her. These are times when your puppy wants something and is more likely to comply. In this way, you are training your dog all the time, throughout the day and also establishing predictable rules and routines for interactions and helping the dog to learn who controls the resources. Training your puppy prior to getting each requested necessity, helps to prevent problems. Having your puppy sit before getting a food or treat prevents begging, while teaching your dog to sit before opening the door can prevent jumping up or running out the door. Be creative. The time you spend training your puppy now will pay off when you have an adult dog. To have a well-trained dog, you need to be committedto reinforcing the training tasks on nearly a daily basis for the first year of your puppy’s life. The more you teach and supervise your puppy, the less opportunity it will have to engage in improper behaviors. Dogs do not train themselves, when left to choose their behavior they will act like dogs.
Similar questions are asked by new Labrador owners. They tend to get excited on the pup in their lives hence provide them with all the essentials, from the cozy bed to the tasty dog foods. But then, the question remains, what happens next after you feed him and provide him shelter? Will you just let him run loose around the house until he grows old to become a brawny huge dog?
“Themes of friendship and problem-solving are slipped effortlessly into the funny and fresh plot, and authentic off-the-grid details bring the story to life . . . A tale of loyalty and friendship—with a strong dose of validation for readers who learn from doing rather than books—that hits all the right notes.” —Kirkus

It’s true that in a small enough house, and with the door to the yard open all day, every day, most puppies will naturally empty themselves outdoors because this is the furthest point away from their nest or sleeping area.
For dogs, English is a second language Dogs aren’t born understanding English. They can learn the significance of specific words, like “sit” and “walk” and “treat,” but when humans bury those familiar words in complex sentences, dogs sometimes have difficulty understanding. They can also get confused when people use different words for the same thing. For example, some people will confuse their dogs by saying, “Fluffy, down!” one day and “Sit down, Fluffy!” another day. Then they wonder why Fluffy doesn’t respond the same way every time. When teaching your dog a cue or command, decide on just one word or phrase, and make sure you and your family use it clearly and consistently.
The program is open to dogs 5 months and older. All clients must attend a pre-admission Aggression Evaluation, during which an Instructor and Manager will discuss the issues and formulate a game plan. The cost of this is between $120 and $150, depending on what resources are involved. If you check your dog in at the same time, we will waive this charge.
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 do…
He is crazy for food, and become restless at exact time of his food time. Now he is 4 months old and all his initial 3 vaccinations has been done. He weighs 20 Kgs now and is healthy. He becomes hyper active when he sees or meets children. I have to keep a close watch and a tight hold on his leash whenever he is around children.
You can do this by crating him for a few minutes, or by cuddling him in your arms. I recommend the cuddle option for the first few days, that way you can introduce the crate gradually once he has settled into his new home.
First time ever I own a pet at my home. i have a lab (Zooby) which is 2 months old and it is very naughty and playful. I’m following the training methods that you have mentioned in your site but not very successful. I would like to know when is the right time to train my pet and when is the right time (mature) for my Zooby to understand my instructions?
The founding teachers of Dog School Los Angeles are a team of educated, dog loving professionals who respect each other just as much as the dogs we work with. Working together over the years had proven to be highly valuable whenever we had the chance. So naturally, we decided optimize our value in dog care abilities and work together all the time. Trust and respect are in balance within our faculty. And while there are many different career paths out there, this one in particular fulfills us most.
