Group Classes, Private Lessons, and In-Kennel Training II: In this course students will be instructed in both group and private lesson instruction, and in-kennel training techniques. Students will learn:
For students who wish to continue to work with their dogs, gain a better understanding of the exercises introduced in the Beginner class and achieve more control over their dogs. Instruction will focus on areas where the dog/handler need improvement and prepare them to move on to the Intermediate class.
Then put more efforts into house training her if you can. Lots of praise and reward every time she potty’s in the correct place, and for a while you have to prevent her pottying in the wrong place. You particularly need to prevent her soiling in her crate, so for a while this may mean setting an alarm and getting up in the middle of the night for a while to take her to the toilet spot until she gets out of the habit.
“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
Quinntastic Dog provides top-quality, effective training not only for puppies, but also their owners (along with the entire family). You can count on us to help you develop a wonderful relationship with your new family member.
But in all seriousness, training isn’t a one and done thing, it’s an ongoing process. And growing up and during adolescence, dogs go through stages where they seem to forget everything, stages where they kick up against the rules to see what they can get away with, explore and do things they know they shouldn’t, basically all the things that you and I did (and most dogs and animals do) as a part of growing up.
React consistently to bites. Every time your puppy bites, say “NO!” in a firm voice. Then just walk away and ignore the puppy. Social isolation and time outs can be an effective form of punishment for a pack animal. You can also yelp when your puppy bites too hard. It might seem silly but puppies in a litter will cry out if a sibling accidentally bites too hard. Yelping when your puppy lays teeth on your will give feedback to very young puppies about what is acceptable playing and what isn’t.
We specialize in resolving dog behavior problems – everything from a lack of manners, to hyperactivity, to nervous/fearful behavior, to anxiety and aggression. When you work with us, you’ll learn practical methods to communicate with your dog and guide him/her to better behavior choices. Your dog will learn better doggie manners, a thorough understanding of basic obedience commands, and how to consistently make good behavior choices!
Using a long training lead on a rescue dog is often a very good idea. The dog simply trails the lead around on the créer une sas en ligne whilst running free outdoors, this gives you some control whilst allowing him some freedom
The puppy is getting overexcited. Immediately when the puppy starts to bite, stop putting the collar on and walk away. Let him calm down, then try again. You can also add a firm “No”, before you leave, which offers him the chance to calm down first. Leave plenty of time when going out, so you don’t feel pressured into giving in. Eventually, the puppy will learn the fastest way to get his collar on is to be good.
The collar does not magically impart the knowledge and skills of dog training to the guy holding the transmitter. Most folks buy an electric collar to solve a basic obedience problem, and they generally end up abusing the dog and not solving the problem, or trading one problem for an even bigger one. Proper training can solve nearly all problems in basic obedience, and you don’t need an electric collar to do so.
Jumping up, pulling on the lead, biting, mouthing, nipping, inappropriate toileting, aggression towards dogs, food aggression, aggression towards family members, pack aggression, stranger aggression, fear aggression, inattentiveness (dogs that won’t listen), poor recall (dogs that won’t come back when called), destructive behaviors, chasing cats, squirrels, horses and livestock, over exuberance, nuisance barking, crying, yelping, howling, separation anxiety, digging, escaping, chewing, hyperactivity, item obsession, phobias or general disobedience.
At first, I was hesitant about sending my rescue to a doggy day care, but I was able to weigh the pros and cons. Now, I am grateful for their services – I notice that as soon as Charlie is picked up and goes home… he is passed out! It shows how much energy he has spent with the caretakers and the other dogs at Dog School. Whenever we walk Charlie around the area and we are close to the dog school, he pulls/tugs us towards the dog school which shows how much he enjoys being there! Thanks again for watching over my Charlie!
Secondly, is the crate the right size? if too large a dog may use one end as a toilet and the other to sleep in. It needs to be just big enough to stand without hitting her head, turn around in easily and lay down paws stretched out…but no bigger.
Jen and the staff at PRO K-9 have had such a positive impact on my family and my dog. Homer was a high strung, anxiety filled basket case, highly protective of us and our home. Homer and I now love going for walks and to socialization class to be around other dogs and strangers—something that would have NEVER happened without PRO K-9!
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.
I have an Australian kelpie who is a very focused herding dog – terrible on a leash, reactive, obsessive and really bad the car. Before meeting RD I had hired two other trainers to work with him and they were both a waste of money – one even told me good luck and that there was nothing he could do to help my dog! During the first session with RD she had him walking on a leash without pulling and riding in a car without freaking out. I was in shock! I thought for sure when I walked him the next day he would revert to his old habitats but it has been two weeks and he is still doing great on leash and major improvement in the car! The second session we worked on leash reactivity and his obsessive behavior in the yard – these are going to take a little longer to work through but I have already seen improvements. RD showed me techniques to use so I feel like I finally have the tools to correct his behavior. She also gave me some pointers for my other dog. I highly recommend working with RD, I wish I had met her years ago! My dog is going to have a much better life after working with RD – I may actually be able to take him hiking this summer!

It’s somewhat ironic that for a dog who is so widely used as a guide dog for the blind that the Labrador suffers from various eye problems. Many Labs suffer from Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) and also cataracts can be a problem – especially in older Labradors.
Proofing can be carried out using just the same labrador training techniques as you did with your basic training, but it can be more complicated to set the dog up to ‘win’ when you are proofing, than it was when you were teaching in the absence of any distractions.
Getting a new puppy to live with an elderly dog can sometimes be good, sometimes be bad. It’s a lot like asking 80 year old grandparents to live with a toddler: Some will get all cantankerous, short-fused and hate the child, others will get a new lease of life, perk up and ‘feel young again’. Sometimes the elderly dog can retreat a bit and not want anything to do with the puppy, sometimes a ‘parenting instinct’ can kick in and they kind of adopt it. It depends a lot on the elderly dogs personality.
We recently have been adding to our selection of handout materials for trainers to give to their clients.
