Dog Training Programs We Offer In Pawling, NY
For the new puppy owner in need of training for their pups, the team here at Wolfen 1 can certainly help. Training a new pup can surely be a difficult task, but not for the pros here at Wolfen 1. We highly suggest you start your pup’s training early on with simple basic commands, since at a very young age, their learning capabilities are greater, and teaching proper behavior patterns at this early stage is a whole lot easier to accomplish.
Puppy training skill sets we follow:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
All of our puppy training programs and sessions we offer our Pawling clients, and those in the adjacent towns serve to benefit both dogs and owners, and help to establish a healthy relationship right from the start.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
The basic dog obedience training classes we offer are based on a merit and reward system. This type of system has proven to motivate dogs, both mentally, and physically, and dogs tend to be more responsive when a reward is given. Our basic dog obedience program is the pre-amble to our much more advanced training programs, and must be completed successfully in order to participate in any advanced training.
- Sit down
Our basic dog obedience training is primarily for more mature dogs that have already mastered the skills of basic training taught at our Brookfield facility, and are ready to move onto more advanced training.
Advanced Dog Obedience Training
The ever-popular advanced obedience training programs we offer are for more developed dogs, and they teach them to ignore the many everyday distractions that surround them. From people and other animals, to moving vehicles and the likes, this advanced dog obedience training program stresses focus on their owner, and not on distractions. It also teaches dogs a greater respect for their Pawling owners as well.
- Back Up
Additional components of the advanced dog obedience training include more advanced commands that are used to manage distractions, with a great deal of focus on teaching dogs to pay attention to their masters only, and not to the many Pawling distractions, and surroundings.
Our dog behavior modification program has earned us much recognition in the industry. If your dog has learned bad behaviors, rest assured the trainers here at Wolfen 1 will help to make a difference. Our dog behavior modification program replaces bad behaviors with taught good behaviors.
The bad behaviors exhibited by dogs typically stem from insufficient exercising, lack of attention, and may also be the result of outward resistance to training. Regardless of the source of your dog’s bad behavior, our behavior modification training here at Wolfen 1 can reverse those behaviors. We strive to help our Pawling clients enjoy healthy relationships with their pups.
Dogs who exhibit bad behaviors may also suffer from social fears, lack of proper discipline, and even insufficient exercising.
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.
We also offer therapy dog training to owners who want their dogs to serve as therapy dogs, offering companionship to those confined to Pawling nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes. In order to participate in this program, your dog must possess the right behavior patterns and temperament. In addition, they must be gentle, friendly, social, and be comfortable with other people touching them. No matter the breed, age, or size, we can train them if their temperament and personality fits the bill.
A dog that exhibits bad behavior patterns, lacks the ability to remain calm, still, and controlled at all times, and hasn’t the appropriate temperament, would not be a candidate to become a therapy dog.
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. Service dogs ‘serve’ only one person, while therapy dogs administer to many, which is why it is so important for a therapy dog to possess proper social behaviors, be comfortable with touch, and have overall good health.
Off Leash Dog Training
For the adventurer and dog owner, our off leash training may be the perfect fit for your dog. If you love hiking, running, or even cross-country skiing, and like taking your companion along, then off leash training is an absolute must do. This specialized training program is designed to help dogs deal with separation, and a variety of 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 award-winning off leash training programs help Pawling dog owners to gain more control of their dogs, and enhance communications and relationships needed when enjoying adventures together.
If you give favor to in-kennel-boarding and training, then we have the perfect program for you. The team here at Wolfen 1 works right alongside the owners of the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford, CT to provide all the training your dog needs. We offer a 6-week training program that teaches extensive training, including basic and advanced obedience training.
At week 5 of the training program, 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, all dogs are taught to focus on their owners, and to ignore surrounding distractions. At week 5, owners are asked to participate so as to assist dogs in the transition from trainer to owner, and help establish themselves as their dog’s director and leader.
