Therapy dogs provide the needed companionship for those in nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes. Ideally, dogs of any age, breed, and size are able to become a certified therapy dog. However, temperament and personality are huge factors that come into play when it comes to the deciding factor.
Dogs who have problems with behavior or who are unable to sit still and remain calm are less likely to become therapy dogs. Therapy dogs must be friendly, gentle, comfortable around new people and remain calm in many different environments.
To become a therapy dog, your dog must:
- Complete basic and advanced obedience training
- Enjoy meeting new people
- Follow basic obedience commands like sit, come or leave it
- Remain calm and still during visits
Therapy dogs are usually mistaken for service dogs, however, a therapy dog does not stay with one individual owner or assist them directly. Therapy dogs are constantly in contact with new people, so they must possess the proper social skills, good health, and be comfortable with being touched by people of all ages.
Off Leash Dog Training
Off-leash training can be beneficial for dog owners who enjoy adventurous situations like hiking, running, or simply spending time on large properties.
This type of training should only be considered after basic and advanced obedience level training programs have been completed and mastered. Your dog will need to be able to respond to commands at a high degree in order to successfully be taught to walk off leash.
By having your dog participate in off-leash training sessions in Sherman, you will be able to gain more control of your companion even in distracting situations and environments. If there are any situations that are unforeseen and you happen to be separated from your dog, you will be at ease knowing that your dog will stay calm and obedient.
Having time to train your puppy or dog may be difficult for some owners. You may also have some dog trainers who stray away from behavior problems, but that’s not the case at Wolfen1.
We offer a minimum 6 weeks training program which is held in New Milford at the Mine Hill Kennel. Here we will extensively train your dog whether it is with basic or advanced obedience training. The owners of Mine Hill Kennel will personally attend to your dog in any way that they can.
Programs we follow:
- Attention Getters
- Sit Methods
- Down Methods
- Heel & Come
Dogs that are put through behavior modification training, will then participate in obedience training where we will reinforce good behavior and your dog will look to you for guidance. Around week 5, owners will be integrated into the training program, helping to make the necessary adjustment from trainer to the owner. Owners will then learn the program steps and procedures and will make key adjustments to adapt to our training style, establishing the owner as the leader.
