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…
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.
Dave met with my family and I to hold a demonstration which showed us how to get more control with our dog in 15 minutes than the other two trainers had showed us in months. Following the demonstration I attended lots of group classes and never looked at another system after that. More about me, I creation micro entreprise 49 years young and have a beautiful wife, 3 awesome kids, one of who is currently attending The University Of Tennessee, The second one is attending Denver University and the third is completing his junior year in high school.

He is 2 years old and white in colour. How do I train him, what type of food do I feed him, is he an outside dog, can he be a guard dog? and will he be able to get on with my cats? I had a chow chow he was an amazing dog with the most beautiful nature, loving and adorable. I had to put him to sleep because he had very bad arthritis in the spine and he was 14 year old. I still pine for him as I loved him very much. Many Thanks

There is a normal, natural fear period that begins around 14 to 16 weeks. During this period, a puppy may become wary and suspicious of new people, species or experiences. This is a normal adaptive process. Watch your puppy closely for signs of fear (cowering, urinating, and refusal of food treats). Avoid pushing or overwhelming your puppy during this developmental stage.

I cannot say enough great things about Dog School. My husband and I have very hectic schedules and a very energetic dog so this place is a lifesaver. Before dog school, we didn’t think that our dog Abbey was capable of being tired out-even after multiple long trips to the dog park. We could not have been more wrong-Abbey is all smiles and can hardly stay awake when we get her home.

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!
At the beginning of their careers, dog trainers may work for established trainers who own their own businesses. With experience, trainers with strong business skills may open their own training schools for dogs or even teach courses for prospective dog trainers.
Before we find out how to potty train a dog, we should probably find out if is really necessary to have a structured potty training process, or whether dogs will potty train themselves naturally without our help.
Joanne gave me great directions on how to correct Laila’s problem areas. I took Laila for a long walk after she left, and I walked Laila instead of Laila walking me. Since Joanne came to our home, Laila’s behavior is already like night and day. We are committed to the program!
