About our dog training programs:
Our dog training programs are available to all breeds and all ages.
We recognize that once dogs reach their adult developmental stage, their behavior changes, and when that happens we are here to help your dog overcome those undesirable behaviors through positive reinforcement behavior modification.
Not all dogs behave and develop the same. We recognize it is important to look at each dog as an individual and not to expect all dogs to respond to a “cookie cutter style” of training. Therefore we customize our dog training programs to meet each dogs individual training goals.
Our customized training programs are developed to match you and your dogs personality, ability and learning style.
Recognizing each family member has different goals for their dog, we consult individually with each family member to gather input on behaviors you would like to address.
For dog training to be successful all family members should feel confident you have the right training tools to be successful during our dog training programs in Maryland.
What dog training techniques do we use?
We use 100% positive reinforcement dog training methods, and are committed to never use pain to train your dog.
We do not support the use of shock collars, choke collars, or prong collars ever. We only use flat collars, front clipping harnesses or head collars depending upon the needs of each dog, and what you the owner is most comfortable with.
We will teach you how to recognize what motivates your dog and use that motivator as a training tool and primary reinforcer.
You will also learn how to read your dogs body language, communicate effectively and that is what sets us apart from most other dog training programs.
