Benefits of Day Training:


  • Your dog is set up for success through immediate reinforcement of correct choices.
  • Consistency and clarity. In early training, consistency and clarity are key to future learning. Lack of these can create confusion which can lead to behavior issues.
  • Reduced frustration in learning by building bridges of communication (by use of marker word or clicker). A professional trainer’s strong mechanical skills and timing facilitate quick, error-free learning.
  • Protocols to prevent future behavior issues
  • Maximizes training time and your dog’s learning potential
  • Sessions tailored to your dog’s exact training needs moment by moment, working toward your specific goals.
