The Country Dog’s positive, holistic approach to training helps you achieve your goal of a well-mannered dog. A dog who’s trained The Country Dog way is a companion and member of your family because our emphasis is on real-life dog training and methods you can use for the best results. Your dog has to live in your world, and we give you the tools to make that happen.
We specialize in positive training which rewards your dog for making good choices. Rewards include treats, toys, going outside, play and praise – anything your dog finds meaningful. A behavior that is reinforced becomes a habit that lasts a lifetime.
The foundation of our training is communication between you and your dog, communication that’s practical, thoughtful and relationship-based. Balanced, positive methods, clear limits and consistency are the underpinnings of our program. Additionally we teach an awareness of canine body language and social signals as an integral part of the training process.
Our services are designed to meet your individual needs and budget. We will work with you to define your training objectives, determine what is important for you and your dog to achieve understanding and cooperation. We want to make it easy and fun for both you and your dog, incorporating games in all our training packages. Teaching your dog tricks enhances your relationship with your canine companion, and you get to show off your skills to friends and family!
