Dog Training Programs We Offer In Brewster Hill, NY
Puppies are always an exciting addition to family, bringing with them new energy, life, and playfulness. When it comes to getting a puppy, though, many people make the mistake of postponing training. Dogs are behavioral creatures, so it is important to start early to establish healthy behaviors. Our training helps with simple commands that correlate with puppies’ innate nature to follow and listen.
Puppy training skill sets we follow:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
For our Brewster Hill clients, our puppy training program helps you in the transition of introducing a new dog to the family. If you have any questions about our techniques, please call us.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
When you get a dog or as your dog gets older, you want them to be able to listen and obey. This is accomplished with specific training and repeated practices, and our basic obedience training program can help instill this behavior in your dog. It provides positive stimulation while also preparing them for more advanced commands in the future.
- Sit down
Our basic obedience training programs requires a certain level of attention and focus from dogs, which is typically found in more mature dogs. If you have a puppy that you would like to train, we offer specialized puppy training programs in Brewster Hill.
Advanced Dog Obedience Training
After completing basic obedience training, we encourage our Brewster Hill dog owners to continue with advanced obedience training. This involves more complex techniques that are built off a solid foundation. The goal in advanced obedience is to help in eliminating distractions, such as other dogs or people in the surrounding environment.
- Back Up
With advanced obedience training, we are looking to build respect in the relationship and minimize miscommunication. Our Brewster Hill programs help dogs be able to focus more directly on their owner, even in noisy or distracted environments.
If you have a dog or have any experience around dogs, you have probably noticed that they all have their habits. Dogs are behavioral animals and like to operate in patterns. This is beneficial for training, but it can also be detrimental if poor behavior is initially learned.
We offer behavioral modification programs for our Brewster Hill clients. If bad behavior is learned, there is no need to worry. It can be from a number of reasons, such as a lack of exercise or socialization, or improper discipline for a certain breed.
Some destructive behavioral issues that can be changed:
- Seperation Anxiety
It can be difficult to know where to begin when you notice bad behavior, but our Brewster Hill 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 Brewster Hill dog.
Dogs have the ability to emotionally connect with people. This can provide comfort and assurance for individuals, especially if they are easily stressed or anxious. If your dog fits this description, they may be perfect for therapy dog training. Therapy dogs are useful in a variety of situations, such as at nursing homes, retirement homes, schools, and also hospitals.
There are certain requirements to be a therapy dog. Breed, age, or size do not actually play a role in determining a good therapy dog candidate. Rather, it is about personality and temperament. Therapy dogs need to be gentle, amenable, docile, and flexible with their surrounding environment.
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
There is a big difference between therapy dogs and service dogs. Service dogs typically spend time with one person and serve them individually. Therapy dogs, on the other hand, almost do the complete opposite. They interact with large groups of people and are sometimes put in varying environments. Therapy dogs must be able to adapt and stay calm when these changes occur.
Off Leash Dog Training
Wolfen1 seeks to help the dog owners of Brewster Hill have the strongest possible bond with their beloved animals. Our off leash training helps in accomplishing exactly that, building trust and respect on both ends.
Our off leash training is based on the techniques first learned with our other obedience training programs, and it should not be considered until both basic and advanced programs have been completed. Once they are familiar with the commands and methods used, they will be ready for more techniques and how to respond.
The off leash training sessions in Brewster Hill are a fantastic option for dogs and owners who like to spend time outdoors, especially hiking, running, and being in large, open areas. Even if you encounter distractions or other unexpected situations, you and your dog can remain calm.
In Kennel, Board and Train Program for Dogs
The goal of Wolfen1 is to help out Brewster Hill clients at all times possible. This means helping those who struggle to find time to train their dog or new puppy. Several training services refuse behavioral issues, but Wolfen1 is here to help in any situation.
Our training program held at the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford is a great option for any dog. It is a minimum of 6 weeks and involves several different training approaches, varying on your needs and your dog’s behavior.
Programs we follow:
- Attention Getters
- Sit Methods
- Down Methods
- Heel & Come
With our training programs, we know it is important to get the dog ready for their Brewster Hill home. After we complete the behavior modification training, the obedience in reinforced with the owner. Near the end of the program, we invite the owners to participate and help the dog in making the adjustment from trainer to owner. We educate our Brewster Hill clients on our methods and the program so that can adapt to the style. This promotes a strong and healthy relationship after the kennel services have ended.
