doesn't listen unless you have treats?
Obedience is you asking your dog to do something and he does
it because you say so, and not because the dog is going to get food or
Be forewarned, the words "Positive Reinforcement, Luring and
Operant Conditioning." are code for bribing with food. Folks, don't waste your
time and money on this nonsense and call us to learn how to train your dog fast

| CLASSES. . .Just About The Worst Way To Train Your
Dogs need both private
lessons and classes.
False When you hear this the trainer will start you
at home and then tell you to take a few classes, knowing most people drop out
and then he will not have to do the rest of your home lessons. Classes are
synonymous with people quitting.
Classes are a good place
to socialize your dog.
False It sounds good though. Dogs learn to socialize
with each other when they are six to eight weeks old in the litter, the
Critical Period. If your dog obviously hates other dogs, or is very fearful of
them, the aggression or fear very often gets much worse from well-meaning
attempts by dog trainers to break this behavior in classes.
If you were scared of heights, would hanging you off the top
of a tall building make you less or more fearful of falling? If you need to
teach your dog good manners in public, remember the 3 phases of dog
training--learning, correction, then distraction proofing. Classes have it
backwards making it much much harder to train and socialize your dog.
Classes are good to
teach your dog to behave around distractions.
False What classes have kids on razor scooters or
families having picnics, real life distractions? If you want your dog to behave
around kids on razor scooters, for example, you need to train your dog first,
then introduce distractions.

ineffective and often make problems worse.
Dogs often get stressed-out in training classes and become
withdrawn, depressed or aggressive.
If you have a small dog or a puppy, there is a good chance
it will get attacked by a larger dog. People in classes often can't control
their dogs, which often slip out of their collars and attack other dogs in
Don't take our word
for it, go watch a class and see dogs lunging and snapping at each
| Group dog training classes have it backwards
Classes make dogs resistant to obedience by putting
distraction first. The three phases of dog training are: #1 Learning, #2
Correction, AND THEN #3 Distraction. Classes often stress-out dogs and make them fearful or neurotic causing a host of undesirable behaviors
at home such as self-mutilation and dominance.
DOG OWNERS DO GET
SPECIAL ATTENTION IN CLASSES
- The trainer may ask you to leave.
- Most people feel humiliated and embarrassed in classes
- All the other people in class may stare at you like you
are mean or clueless.
- You may be ignored and treated unfairly.
Classes are ineffective for solving serious problems in the
A dog trainer cannot solve problems in the home when she
has never been there. People's perspective, or what they say, is often the
exact opposite of what a trainer sees at the home. People do not connect
certain things to problems. Trainers always need to to see what is going on at
the home for themselves to end troubles.
| What You Want to Look Out For
WHEN THEY SAY HOW LONG IT TAKES - It does not take a
six weeks course to learn "sit", "down", "stay", "heel" and "come" on a leash.
We teach all this and much more in one to three lessons, and teach off-leash
training in 4 or 5 lessons!
