Dog Training BlogI guess you could say this is not a traditional blog.  It’s not story telling in the traditional sense, but it is full of opinions.  Mine.  On how to train your dog to be successful in this human oriented world. 

You’re busy.  Family.  Kids.  Work. Bills to pay.   And yet, there is the furry, bright-eyed, 4-legged critter at your feet who really wants nothing more than to love and be loved.   He just may not no how to do that for you.   Yet.  You’re going to have to show him.  And we can show you how.

Dogs were domesticated to be partners to humans.  Your companion.  And to provide some service to the human race.   Even if it’s only love.  It’s usually so much more than that.

The tricky part is how do you help your dog reach that potential.   True Service dogs are trained for a minimum of 18 months in most cases!  That’s a long time.  And that thought overwhelms you.  It doesn’t have to. 

If we can begin with a young puppy — you can raise that puppy into a fantastic adult dog with good manners, obedience & listening skills, and a lot of fun.   But even that isn’t always easy.  Sometimes it’s frustrating and tiresome.  And many people want to, or do give-up.  Please don’t. 

Many of us are trying to do good in the community by adopting a homeless pet in a rescue, given to us by a friend or family member falling on hard times, or even taking in a stray.   Your heart in is the right place and your home is a good one for any dog.   But many of these dogs didn’t begin their lives being nurtured as a puppy into the balanced adult dog.   They often have issues.  

People want the companionship and loyalty of a dog.   A dog can fulfil your life in many ways. 

If and only if you know how to teach them to be that for you.  Your home.  Your lifestyle.  Your needs.   We can help!!!

It begins with proper pet selection.   That really is the absolute most important decision to make — Is “this” dog, the right one for you.   Breed.   Energy Level.  Lifespan.  Grooming Needs.  Training ability.

When you’ve got that part right — then this blog is for you.  We’ll help you with the rest.

This blog exists because I want to give you as much information as I can.  I do this because I care.   Because I want dogs and families to be good together. 

Read.  Learn.  And Train yourself and your dog.
