Why You Want Professional Dog Obedience & Behavior Training
Our dog training courses are focused on giving you the education to develop your dog(s) to their fullest potential through repetition and routine. The exercises and knowledge provided will be useful throughout the entire lifetime of your dog.
All training is force free and positive using only human Voice and Posture (whistles will be used in Advanced training). We may occasionally instruct a mild “correction” on the scruff, but nothing that would not happen naturally in the wild or with a dog packs instinct in mind. We teach visual cues simultaneously with verbal commands.
Doggie Steps Dog Training offers In Home – At My Home – or GROUP dog training classes. Normally within only a few days you will notice a positive change in your dog! DOGGIE STEPS training techniques to motivate and condition your dog will include: treats, loving praise, posture, and tone of voice. Dogs respond best to varied tonal frequencies, and we will teach you to use your voice to make a lasting connection with your dog.
Dog Training Commands Used By Professional Dog Trainers
Dog Training Tips - Sit, Drop, and Off
Fiddo won’t sit?
First off, remain calm. Dogs feed off of our energy so try not to stress out around your dog. Get down on one knee, and slowly raise a treat above your dog’s nose. As the head raises up to follow the treat, gravity will slowly set the butt down. Praise with treat and repeat 10x per day with your dog.
Fiddo won’t drop your shoe?
Dogs can learn through training how to pick up and drop objects. I call this “give and take” or “up and DROP”. I use this method when training sporting dogs to release game birds. With a squeak toy, get your dog’s attention. Next, command “take” and let your dog bite and hold the toy. Then, command “drop” and release the toy from your dog’s jaws. Praise with treat and repeat 10x per day with your dog.
Fiddo keeps jumping on you?
No dog is perfect. Dogs get excited and show this love for people by jumping. Dogs learn by routine, so, practice when greeting your dog, approach with a verbal greeting, but NO physical contact for the first 2-3 minutes. If your dog attempts to jump on you, turn sideways (less surface space to land on) and command OFF. When all four paws are on the floor, treat and praise. Repeat 10x per day with your dog.
