Obedience Training Lessons


You have just brought home a new, older dog into your home. Older dogs are different in some ways; they arrive with a history behind them, having learned to what to expect from life as they matured. They may come ready to bond with you the moment they enter your house, or they may need a little time to get to know you, to build a relationship with you and your family. They may come with good habits or bad ones. Some may come and ease themselves into your life right away while others, may require a little more time, knowledge and patience. So, whether your new dog needs obedience training, or your current dog needs a “refresher course”, I can design a program tailored to your needs and your dog’s needs.

As the owner, you will need to be patient, committed, consistent and persistent, yet kind-hearted, up beat and fun! You are the central ingredient to your dog’s success. As such, you will need to be committed to spending quality time training your dog every day. Remember, it’s never too early or too late to train your dog!
