As many of us know, dogs can easily learn bad behaviors, whether through neglect or by resistance to training. Though it may be a bit challenging, you can reverse this behavior by engaging in the proper training programs here in Patterson.
Typically, bad behavior patterns can stem from a number of reasons. From lacking proper exercise or social skills, to fear and lack of discipline, dogs can often develop less than perfect behavior patterns.
Some behavioral signs that can be changed:
- Seperation Anxiety
Right from the get go, if you seek out proper training and take advantage of our quality training programs here in Patterson, you are apt to see positive and even quicker results. The trainers here at Wolfen 1, are equipped with all the experience and know how needed to teach your dog the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behaviors.
In today’s world, therapy dogs are becoming more and more popular in nursing homes, schools, hospitals and retirement homes. In order for a dog to serve as a therapy dog, regardless of age, size or breed, it must possess a specific type of temperament and personality.
Dogs that display behavior problems or are unable to remain calm or simply sit still, are more than likely not going to qualify to be therapy dogs. In order to qualify, a dog needs to be friendly, gentle and very comfortable around new people while possessing the ability to remain calm in a variety of atmospheres.
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
Unlike service dogs, therapy dogs are not assigned to one individual owner. Rather, therapy dogs are in contact with new people all of the time, which is why specific people skills, social skills, good health, and responding comfortably to the touch of people is so important. Here at Wolfen 1 we strive to provide training at peak levels to groom therapy dogs to handle multiple people and personalities and various environments.
Off Leash Dog Training
For those more adventurous dog owners who spend a good deal of time hiking, running or out and about in open fields and areas, off leash training is the proper course of action for you. However, you should only consider off leash training if your dog has successfully undergone basic and advanced obedience training. This prior training will help your dog undergo successful leash training over time.
When you choose off-leash training services with our professionals here at Wolfen 1 in Patterson, you will find you have greater control of your ‘best friend’ even in the most distracting scenarios. The off-leash training assists dogs greatly if ever they are separated from you.
