Dog Training Programs We Offer In Washington, CT
So, you just added a sweet little furbaby to your family and might not know where to start, well, the best advice we give our clients is to train their pups as early as possible! The younger the better when it comes to basic commands. At a young age they will naturally follow in their owners footsteps making it much easier to form good behaviors.
Puppy training skills we train by:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
Our Washington trainers and expert services provide you with everything you need to begin a happy and healthy relationship with your new dog!
Basic Dog Obedience Training
Our trainers begin their work using a positive reward approach to introduce basic commands and skills. By beginning your dog in this obedience training it will help carve a path of success for them when they begin more advanced skills.
- Sit down
These commands are used on dogs who are a bit older than puppies, which is why we offer a separate program for owners with a new puppy in the family. We find that the best results happen when dogs are placed in the right training programs at the right time in their lives.
Advanced Dog Obedience Training
In our advanced obedience here at our Washington location we will teach your dog techniques that help cut distracting elements such as cars, people, and other animals. We expand their learning of basic commands and train them to listen and respect their owners.
- Back Up
Here at our Washington Wolfen1 location we help instill advanced skills and commands in your dog while teaching them techniques to help eliminate any nearby distractions.
Bad behavior can be easy to pick up, sometimes it happens due to an owners neglect or abuse, other times a dog simply may resist training attempts. We can help no matter what the case is, we have a convenient location in Washington, CT that will get your dog back on track.
There are numerous reasons that your furry family member may lack good behavior. We find that inadequate human and animal interactions, fear, and even improper exercise can lead to bad habits.
Some behavioral issues that can be fixed:
- Seperation Anxiety
Get your dog the help and training they need with us here in Washington. Our trainers are ready to advance your dogs skill set and change their course of bad behavior by teaching which behaviors are appropriate and which are not.
Therapy dogs come in all sizes, ages, and breeds, but what they all have in common is their devotion and love for those around them. We help train dogs to become key companions for those in need and get them ready for interactions whether they’re at a hospital, school, or any other location.
Dogs with more energy and the inability to remain calm in varying locations are not the perfect fit to become a therapy dog. The most successful therapy dogs are calm, friendly, and can adapt to whatever location they may be in.
To have a successful therapy dog, your dog must:
- Perfect basic and advanced obedience training
- Love attention from others
- Adhere to basic obedience commands like sit, come or leave it
- Keep calm and still while visiting others
Many people mistake therapy dogs for service dogs, the key difference is that service dogs are trained to support their sole owner, while therapy dogs are loved by multiple people in different environments. All therapy dogs must be healthy, friendly, and adaptable.
Off Leash Dog Training
Whether you’re a hiker, runner, or want your dog to have freedom beyond a fence, we can properly train them to be off their leashes.
Your dog must have mastered our basic and advanced obedience training programs before attempting any off leash course. They will need the backbone of previous commands and skills in order to start their off leash training.
Our off leash training sessions here at our Washington location can help your dog remain safe and calm in any situation. Whether there are distractions around, or you find yourself separated from your dog for any reason, the skills they learn with us will instill a peace of mind for you, and obedience from them until you find each other again.
