Why In-Home service vs. Group training classes
Your dog lives in your home 95% of the time. This is where dogs develop both good and bad behaviors and where training will be most effective. Also, training a dog in the home will give you the satisfaction of worry free scheduling and no time consuming travel time. Group classes can only offer you a general overview of basic training without a full understanding of your particular needs in a distractive environment which can contribute to a higher rate of failure. With in-home training, dogs will develop a trust bond with their human family which will give the dog more comfort before advancing to a group setting. This will ensure a greater success for a total training understanding. Dogs learn by association in their environment, so once you have achieved consistent training routines at home, you and your dog will have the confidence to move forward in more challenging surroundings. This is why I believe gaining better knowledge and understanding of how to train your dog in your home is more realistic and will lead your dog to a healthier and happier life.
Learning how to lead your dog correctly
Once the role of family leadership is established, teaching your dog will be much more successful and consistent. To fit in, all dogs need to understand who is responsible in the group and to be at peace in the home and social settings. Canines have an instinctive need and desire for the social positioning in order to control their environment, so once you have established that role, your dog won’t need to fight for that position or figure out their responsibilities. Poor dog behavior is from a lack of consistent management as well as inconsistent messages. Leadership in the home isn't difficult to achieve, as long as every family member is on the same page and doing the same thing. Once you take responsibility to learn how to communicate clear information messages to your dog, training will be quite easy and enjoyable for both you and your dog. Dog owners must learn to take action in a positive way without hurting or break a dog’s spirit. Dogs are one of the most wonderful creatures God has ever given us. Let’s do our very best not to let them down.
