What Our Customers Have to Say About Us

“We have Jasper, a sweet, 42 lb, a six-year-old terrier with a mind of his own. Overall he’s been an excellent dog but his excitement at meeting new people and dogs was over-enthusiastic, to say the least. He would run around, jump on, and put his mouth on any guest coming into our house. With dogs, his excitement level was the same. Dog Coach taught us to use the remote collar and other subtle methods that helped us train Jasper to react to people and dogs in a way that everyone could enjoy, including him. Their method really worked and was fun as well. Thank you, Dog Coach!!”

Dog Training Tip: Teaching Your Dog to Walk Nicely

If you have trouble controlling your dog out on walks, raise your expectations for a better walk with practice in your backyard or a smaller quiet area. Keep distractions to a minimum because your dog is still learning to focus on you and your control. Teaching your dog is a process. Begin to manage distractions just enough so that you can correct your dog and hold their focus. When your dog starts behaving on walks, appreciate the work you have done for a calm, controlled, enjoyable walk. Job well done!
