Dog Training Programs We Offer In Beekman, NY
If you are a new puppy owner and are now faced with the difficult task of training your pup, then worry no more. Many new dog owners opt to delay puppy training, not recognizing that the longer you wait to begin training, the more difficult the task. When you begin training early on with basic commands, overall learning capabilities and proper behavior patterns are easily learned, which benefits both owners and pups.
Puppy training skill sets we follow:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
Our effective puppy training programs offered to our Beekman clients, and those in the adjacent towns help to get owners and pups off to a good relationship start.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
Our top-rated basic dog obedience training classes are founded on a merit and reward system that has proven to help motivate dogs; both mentally, and physically. Dogs tend to be quick to respond when there is a reward to be had, and is indeed an effective training option for dogs of all breeds and sizes. Our basic dog obedience program is the pre-amble to the advanced training programs, and it must be completed before your dog can move on to advanced training.
- Sit down
In addition, our basic dog obedience training is geared towards more mature dogs that have already mastered the skills of basic training taught at our Brookfield facility.
Advanced Dog Obedience Training
Our popular advanced obedience training programs teach more developed dogs how to ignore the many distractions that surround them every day. From people and other animals, to moving vehicles and the likes, our program teaches them to focus on their owner, and not the abundant distractions that surround them. In addition, this program teaches dogs a greater respect for their owners.
- Back Up
There are other elements of the advanced dog obedience training, including a variety of more advanced commands that are used to manage the distractions that are always present. Much focus is given to teaching dogs to stay focused on their masters, and not on their Beekman surroundings.
If your dog has learned bad behaviors, the team here at Wolfen 1 can certainly help. In our dog behavior modification programs, we teach dogs good behavior patterns that, over time, replace existing bad behaviors.
Many times, bad behavior stems from insufficient exercising, lack of attention, and may also be the result of outward resistance to training. The behavior modification training here at Wolfen 1 can reverse bad behaviors, and help our Beekman clients enjoy their friendly companions even more.
Dogs who exhibit bad behaviors often times suffer from social fears, insufficient exercising, or lack of proper discipline. Regardless of the reason for your dog’s bad behavior, the team here at Wolfen 1 can definitely make a difference.
Some behavioral signs that can be changed:
- Seperation Anxiety
If your dog has taken on bad behaviors, then let the team here at Wolfen 1 provide appropriate discipline and behavioral training that will benefit both you and your companion.
If you are hoping to train your dog to be a therapy dog, offering companionship to those confined to Beekman nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes, then the folks here at Wolfen 1 are just the team for you. Our expert trainers help to enhance necessary behaviors and temperaments necessary to serve as a therapy dog. Regardless of breed, age, and size, if your dog possesses the right personality and temperament, then rest assured we can train them to be a successful therapy dog.
If, however, your dog exhibits bad behavior patterns, lacks the ability to remain calm, still, and controlled at all times, and hasn’t the appropriate temperament, then a therapy dog is not in the cards for your pup. Therapy dogs need to be gentle, friendly, social, and comfortable at all times, and be comfortable around all types of people.
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 often confused with service dogs. The primary difference is that therapy dogs serve more than one person, while service dogs are dedicated to only one. For this reason, therapy dogs much possess proper social behaviors, be comfortable with touch, and have overall good health.
Off Leash Dog Training
If you are a lover of the great outdoors, and enjoy taking your dog on your adventures, then our specialized off leash training is the perfect training for your dog. Whether you enjoy hiking, running, cross country skiing, or any other outdoor activities that require being outdoors for long periods of time, then our off leash training program will be beneficial to both you and your dog.
The program is designed to help dogs deal with separation, should it occur when out on your adventures, as well as training in other difficult situations. In order to enroll in the off leash training, however, your dog must have completed our basic and advanced obedience training courses.
Our effective off leash training programs help Beekman dog owners to gain more control of their dogs, and will prove to be a benefit across the board.
In Kennel, Board and Train Program for Dogs
We also offer a specialized one on one in-kennel board and training program that lasts 6 weeks. Our professionals here at Wolfen 1 work directly with the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford, CT to provide extensive training, including basic, and advanced obedience training. The kennel owners work directly with the dogs, and are steadfast in having every dog successfully complete the training.
After 5 weeks of specialized training, owners are asked to join their pups at the kennel for a final week of training.
Programs offered at the kennel include:
- Attention Getters
- Sit Methods
- Down Methods
- Heel & Come
When at the in-kennel training program, dogs are taught to focus only on the direction of their owners. At week 5, owners are asked to participate directly in the program so as to assist dogs in the transition from trainer to owner, and to help establish themselves as their dog’s director and leader.
