Dog Training Programs We Offer In Bedford Hills, NY
For families who have elected to welcome a new family member, early training is an absolute must do in your efforts to properly and timely train your new pup. Learning capabilities and proper behavior patterns are easily learned when training is started right out of the gate. Often times owners think it is best to wait a bit of time before beginning proper training, but this could not be farther from the truth. Early training that includes basic commands is sure to benefit you and your new ‘best friend.’
Puppy training skill sets we follow:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
Puppy training services that are undertaken by our clients who reside in Bedford Hills, and those in the surrounding towns as well help to get both owners and pups off to a good start.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
The basic dog obedience training classes we offer are based on a reward system that motivates your dog; both mentally, and physically. With the use of a reward system, dogs are quick to be responsive to the basic training skills they are taught. The basic dog obedience training is a pre-amble to the advanced training sessions, and must be successfully completed by your dog in order to move on to advanced training of any type.
- Sit down
The basic dog obedience training is primarily suited for more mature or developed dogs who have already mastered the skills of basic training taught at our Brookfield facility.
Advanced Dog Obedience Training
Our top-rated advanced obedience training teaches developed dogs to ignore the many distractions around them, such as people, animals, cars, and the likes. This advanced program is an extension of the basic training, and helps to instill greater respect by dogs to owners.
- Back Up
The advanced dog obedience training also teaches your dog a wide range of other important commands that help them manage distractions that surround them, and teaches them to give primary focus to you, the owner, despite the many sights, sounds, people, and the likes that surround them.
Here at Wolfen 1, we are committed to helping your dog learn good behavior patterns, and to alleviate any bad behaviors that may exist, perhaps as a result of lack of exercise, or even their resistance to training. If your dog has learned bad behaviors, no need to fret. Here at Wolfen 1, our specialized training programs can reverse those behaviors by way of our modification training programs for all our Bedford Hills clients, and those from the numerous counties we serve.
If your dog has bad behavior patterns, chances are they either suffer from social fears, may have experienced insufficient exercising, or may even be the result of lack of proper discipline. Regardless of the cause, rest assured you have come to the right place here at Wolfen 1.
Some behavioral signs that can be changed:
- Seperation Anxiety
It can be difficult to know where to begin when you notice bad behavior, but our Bedford Hills training programs are always here to help. Our dog behavior modification services operate on a one-on-one system, which personalizes the training. Our expert trainers teach the desired actions and behaviors for your Bedford Hills dog.
For those Bedford Hills clients looking to train their dogs to be therapy dogs who can provide companionship to those confined to nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes, then we are the team for you. Our expert trainers will help you to understand the essential behaviors and temperaments that are needed for your dog to perform as a therapy dog. We can train any dog, regardless of age, breed or size that possesses the right personality and temperament to become a therapy dog.
If, however, your dog possesses bad behavior patterns or issues and lacks the ability to remain calm, still and controlled at all times, then sadly he or she will not be a candidate to become a therapy dog. Therapy dogs must be gentle, friendly, social and comfortable around all types of people and lot of them, and regardless of their surroundings and any distractions must be able to remain calm at all times.
In order 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 confused with service dogs many times. Therapy dogs do not ‘serve’ only one person, while a service dog does just that. Therapy dogs come in contact with different people at many different times, which is why their proper social behaviors, comfort with touch, and overall good health is so essential.
Off Leash Dog Training
For the dog owner who loves being adventurous, and enjoys hiking, running, or just exploring the great outdoors, both you and your dog will benefit greatly from our off leash training programs. Regardless of what your outdoor activity preference may be, enrolling your dog in our off leash training program will add to your adventures, and omit any difficult situations, especially with separation. Off leash training cannot be undertaken until your dog has passed our basic and advanced obedience training courses.
Off leash training offers owners greater control of their dogs, and whether you live in Bedford Hills or any other surrounding towns or counties, you can and will greatly benefit from our off leash training programs.
If you are a new dog owner and find yourself faced with the challenges of training your new pup, don’t worry, and don’t delay. Reach out to the professional team here at Wolfen 1, and let us take care of all your training needs.
We offer a unique minimum 6-week training program for our Bedford Hills clients, and all those in the surrounding towns as well, which is conducted at the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford, CT. At the kennel, extensive training is provided, including basic and advanced obedience training, with the owners of the Mine Hill Kennel working personally with your pups, and with owners in the final week of training as well.
Programs offered at the kennel include:
- Attention Getters
- Sit Methods
- Down Methods
- Heel & Come
We teach your dog good behaviors, and instruct them to look only to their owners for guidance and direction. When we reach week 5 of the training, owners are asked to participate directly in the program so as to assist dogs in the transition from trainer to owner. At week 5, owners need to focus on establishing themselves as their dog’s leader and director.
