Wondering how to become a dog groomer? Animal Behavior College’s Dog Grooming Program utilizes a proven system of hands-on training with an online dog grooming course. This multi-sensory format gives each student the education and experience needed to become a successful ABC Certified Dog Groomer (ABCPG). ABC focuses on gentle dog grooming techniques designed to protect the pet and provide a more relaxed grooming experience overall.
In general, those individuals employed as dog trainers are largely “self educated”. This means they have read extensively on behavior modification and dog ethology, attended seminars, workshops and conventions, and perhaps mentored with other trainers. There are some “dog training schools”. As a matter of policy, at this time the APDT cannot endorse any of the selected training programs that are available around the country. When you investigate a school, be sure to inquire about methods used.
Small group classes and private instruction are offered in puppy socialization, kitten socialization, family manners, dog agility, canine freestyle, therapy dog preparation, rally, tracking, Canine Good Citizen, and preparing your pets for your new baby. Behavior modification consultations are available at our facility or in your home.
Your puppy’s adult teeth will start to erupt around four months (16 weeks or so) of age. For this reason, you should manage puppy biting before this age since adult teeth will cause more harm to human skin.
If you notice real aggression in your pup, consult your veterinarian, who will check if there is a medical reason for your pup’s behavior. Your vet may also recommend your pup sees an animal behavior therapist.
I could able to train him on commands like sit, sleep, shake hands and even Hi Five. But as we live in a flat in 10th Floor and also due to my busy schedule and my wife currently 9 month pregnant we are unable to take him regularly outside for a walk (which I know is necessary) for his discharge.
Once he’s got it, place the less tasty treat on the floor… but don’t completely cover it with your hand. Instead hold it a little bit above the treat. Over time, gradually move your hand farther and farther away until your hand is about 6 inches above.
also my pup sleeps all day and is awake late night , he barks and tries to get my attention, though he has many toys he still wants me to be with him and i am completely exhausted at that point of time, i have no choice but to leave him alone . is it bad for the puppy if i leave him unattended?
Just these five simple commands can help keep your dog safer and improve your communication with him. It’s well worth the investment of your time and effort. Remember, the process takes time, so only start a dog obedience training session if you’re in the right mindset to practice calm-assertive energy and patience.

Labradors are happy, eager to please dogs that learn quickly when treated right. As highly food-motivated dogs, you have the advantage of being able to use his stomach in order to get him to work. However, be sure to use very small treats or he will spend more time crunching and chomping than training (and of course he’ll get too heavy.)

I brought my Std Poodle in for grooming and was pleasantly surprised. I normally groom him myself. I had found someone else who did a decent job grooming him (a step up better then me, I’m not a groo…mer I’m a hairstylist lol), she ended up leaving the shop as well as the next one and so on. I’ve paid out a whole bunch of $$ to have him groomed and was mostly disappointed in the end result, just sloppy work no attention to details or requests from me.
Their eagerness to learn, playfulness, affectionate natures and their love of treats make Labrador Retrievers fantastic candidates for positive reinforcement dog training. Reward their good behaviors with a small treat, a game, or some cuddle time with you. You’ll find your Lab is soon offering you the behaviors you like with little prompting from you.
Jimmy has done an amazing job with my 1-year-old mixed breed fur baby! She used to be afraid of her own shadow and wouldn’t go out the front door if their were kids playing outside or lawn mowers or anything, really. She heels like an absolute rock star now and we can even let her…
My experience with Animal Assisted Therapy started in 2009 when I partnered with Colorado State University and HABIC (Human Animal Bond in Colorado) in a graduate level research project. We had one HABIC team work with a student. That student blossomed and I was convinced that I needed to learn more. I spent a significant portion of time on the internet and decided to adopt a dog that could potentially come to work at school. It was 18 months later that Copper first entered our building. I hope the information on this site shortens the entry time for other professionals interested in this modality and provides best practices to those of use who are breaking ground with our own programs.
My two yellow labs have been patients now for one year with Dr. Tony Meyers and Ginger. I want people to know how great this office is not only during the first visit but every single time you visit. One of my dogs has diabetes and is insulin dependent twice a day. It was a huge adjustment for m…

Dog School has nothing to hide, either. Each location has a large store front window where you can witness the dogs doing their canine thing, often just being chill and loving each others company. They are all so adorable (but especially Ponyboy!!!!).
One of the more common places we hear of often is the Petsmart dog training company. We have heard of people being asked to leave the Petsmart dog training course because their dog was too hyper or too rambunctious. Well, isn’t that why you are there? Isn’t that what you need help with? DDT is a lot different from the Petsmart dog training company.
In order to train your Labrador effectively, you’ll need the right tools for the job. The next few articles discuss the various tools and equipment available and how and when you should use them…if at all…as I do not recommend them all.
Essentially your Labrador can only become what you train them to be, so training must be seen as a part of your every day lives together and the process through which you guide your dog to live a happy, safe and fulfilling life.
After a few weeks you will find that when you say this word, your puppy will start to feel the urge to empty himself. This is because the word has become associated in his mind with the act of going to the toilet.
I thought I had posted this review like a year ago when I wrote it but I somehow forgot to do so. An update from this review (my bulldog is almost 2 now ) is that he still loves going to Dog School and every time we day “Are you ready to go to Dog School?” he jumps up from the couch and runs to the front door aka he highly recommends this place! I’ll try to video tape it, it’s hilarious.
Puppies want to please. Reward-based training methods are effective because when a puppy does good, he is praised. This makes him keen to repeat the behavior, in order to get more adoration (or a treat or a game with a toy). This is especially true for Labradors, who are very loving dogs that thrive on the approval of their owners.
Unfortunately, Labs love to smell, they love to track and when the fridge opens up there’s a whole ton of smells and tasty ones at that, seeping out. Your best bet is to claim the space in the kitchen as yours. Do not allow your puppy in the kitchen when your in the kitchen. That will also cause problems in the future if you allow this to continue. In most kitchens, the floor material will change and that line is the first place to start, once you cross that line, don’t allow them to enter with you, make it so they can not enter over this line. Be patient as well, 12 weeks old, he still is learning his new world and wants to explore. But work on this not only when you have to be in the kitchen, make it part of the training. If he stays outside that line award him with a small treat and great praise. A great treat I use for the kitchen is Sweet potato or Peanut Butter ice cubes, Keeps their attention for a while and it’s not the fatty processed treats you buy at the store. Hope this helps and I wish you all the best. Also remember to drain your puppies gas tank through a good steady exercise regime for better training results and a healthier Lab.
