"I do Positive Reinforcement Training, with a Behavioral Approach, and a Holistic Approach. I believe each dog must be trained as an individual, because no two dogs are alike. I have over 35 years of experience training and showing dogs, having started as a Junior Handler in dog shows at the age of 15. I'm also a Veterinary Technician with over 30 years of continuing education with Michigan State University, which enables me to spot behavioral problems that are caused by medical problem or genetics. I've worked with rescues for many years, and one of my specialties is training rescues with severe fears and anxieties caused by abuse, abandonment, or neglect. I've trained show dogs, therapy dogs, service dogs, blind dogs, rescue dogs, and dogs with severe emotional and behavioral problems. I do beginning and advanced obedience training for both puppies and adult dogs. I believe any dog can be trained, no matter what behavioral problems they're having, as long as you're willing to put the time and energy into it, and train with consistency and kindness."
"Your dog truly wants to understand your family. They want to be part of it. Their antics and mischievous behavior maybe a cue to you they are really looking for some direction. Together we will create a positive, enriching, interactive environment; Happy at home."
"Our business utilizes the most important tool out there - your relationship with your dog! We help our clients achieve balance and increase the amount of trust their dog has in them. We use a variety of methods depending on the dog and behavior."
"We believe in a balanced method of training. We don’t focus on a specific method of training; every dog is different and has their own personality. We try our best to help them and understand what is best for the dog. We want our dogs to be trained no matter what the distractions or environment they are exposed. We hold training sessions at Petvalu Cabin John, houses of the client, trails, etc. "
"Successful training comes down to the relationship with your dog. By pursuing a relationship first, we will have an easier time establishing the obedience that follows. Every dog and handler are an individual team with needs that differ from others; a "one size fits all" training approach isn't going to work for everyone. We train the dog in front of us, not the dog who fits into a mold. Our ultimate goal in teaching obedience is to build better decision making; if we can help a dog learn to make good choices, obedience becomes an easy, fun part of everyday life, not a grueling drill we are forced to practice."
"Snorkle's Way offers both private and group sessions that incorporate basic obedience, trick training, canine fitness and leashed hikes into our programs. I specialize in creating individualized programs for you and your dog, so that you get the most out of your training. I believe that the right training tool is my humane tool that helps you and your dog build a positive relationship."
"I have a passion for helping dogs and people which led me to complete my Diploma of Canine Behavior Science and Technology from Companion Animal Sciences Institute and am member of the Association of Animal Behavior Professionals to help my volunteer foster work with rescue dogs. I was involved with raising a 4-H Seeing Eye pup who after extensive training was released for a medical reason that is now our pet along with a KPets therapy dog. I believe in positive reinforcement training based on the behavioral problem. "
"MCS uses a different approach to dog training, we don’t train them, we train you to understand them, so you can learn to modify their behavior. Some trainers try to get you to buy multiple sessions before they even know what's going on with your dog. Instead during the first session we show you how to hit the Ctrl/Alt/Delete button and start over again with an understanding of where you want to go and how to get there. Most of our calls are for getting a dog to stop doing something, not getting them to do something. Most bad behaviors stem from anxiety and once you understand that most problem behaviors are easy to modify."
"I use positive re-enforcement training as my foundation. We start out praising the behavior we want and ignoring the behavior we do not want. I use a variety of tools including clickers, treats, touch stick, voice and hand commands. There is no 'one way' to train a dog. Like humans, dogs have different personalities and you must discover your dog’s personality to be able to choose the training discipline that will compliment your dog"
"We provide in-home training, which means the trainer comes to you, on your schedule! An Animal Behavioral College certified trainer will guide you during the training process using scientifically proven training techniques. Training sessions curtail problem behaviors such as excessive barking, house breaking, aggression, digging, separation anxiety, and fear."
"At Einsteink9 dog training we use a variety of training methods to accommodate each and every dog. We use positive reinforcement, creating a happy and fun obedience training experience bringing only the best out in your dog. "
"I am a force-free, reward and bond based trainer. I teach dogs and their human family members a common language so that communication is clear and learning can happen. My training tools are food, toys and praise. The equipment that I use is a buckle collar, a leash and a harness. My training is focused on building a secure attachment between the dog and his new family and teaching the family how to enrich their new dog’s life through play, games and puzzles."
"Our mission is simple: to help people enjoy an easier, fun, and positive relationship with their dogs, while experiencing the results and rewards of positive training. Positive training builds trusting partnerships between dogs and people. Our humane methods include clicker training, an approach that not only gets results, but is motivating, fast, and fun. Positive reinforcement techniques can help you to teach new behaviors quickly, effectively communicate with your dog, and increase your dog’s problem-solving skills."
