Dog Training Programs We Offer In Wingdale, NY
If you have just invested in a new little pup and are looking for fast and efficient dog training, then we are the team for you. The experienced team here at Wolfen 1 is on hand to provide all your puppy’s training, and we highly suggest we start the process early on with basic commands. At a very young age, puppies are quite trainable, and their learning capabilities are greater at a younger age.
Puppy training skill sets we follow:
- Obedience training
- Name recognition
- Introduction to leashes, collars and road safety
Puppy training is certainly beneficial to both owners and dogs, and those that we offer our Wingdale clients and those in adjacent towns help to establish healthy relationships between owners and pups right out of the gate.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
Our popular basic dog obedience training classes are founded on a reward system that easily motivates dogs; both mentally, and physically. When there is a reward to be given, dogs tend to be more responsive, which is why the program is so popular and successful. This program is the pre-amble to our much more advanced training programs, and it must be completed successfully in order to participate in any advanced training.
- Sit down
The basic dog obedience training is primarily for dogs who 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
Our very successful advanced obedience training programs are geared towards more developed dogs, and teaches them to ignore everyday distractions. From people and other animals, to moving vehicles and the likes, dogs learn to ignore these distractions when they engage in our advanced dog obedience training program. This program also teaches dogs a greater respect for their Wingdale owners as well.
- Back Up
The advanced dog obedience training includes other components as well, specifically 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. The programs help them to ignore the many Wingdale distractions that could ultimately pose a good deal of problems for owners and pets.
If your dog has learned bad behaviors, the team here at Wolfen 1 can help to make a difference. Our dog behavior modification program teaches good behaviors that ultimately replace learned bad behaviors, which 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 behaviors, though, at Wolfen 1, our behavior modification training program can, over time, reverse those behaviors. This program helps our Wingdale clients enjoy healthy relationships with their pups.
Dogs who exhibit bad behaviors tend to 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.
At Wolfen 1, we also offer therapy dog training. Therapy dogs provide companionship to individuals confined to Wingdale nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes. To participate in this program, however, dogs must possess the right behavior patterns and temperament, and also need to be gentle, friendly, social, and comfortable with other people touching them.
No matter the breed, age, or size, we can train your pup to be a therapy dog as long as their temperament and personality fits the bill.
A dog that lacks the ability to remain calm, still, and controlled at all times, exhibits bad behavior patterns, or 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, which serve a variety of people, are often confused with service dogs that only serve one person. Because therapy dogs interact with multiple peoples, it is important that they possess proper social behaviors, be comfortable with touch, and have overall good health.
Off Leash Dog Training
If you want your dog to accompany you on your outdoor hiking, running, or even cross-country skiing adventures, then our off leash training may be the perfect fit for your dog. This specialized training program is designed to help dogs deal with separation, and a variety of other difficult situations. Your dog must have completed our basic and advanced obedience training courses before you can enroll them in our off leash training.
The off leash training programs help Wingdale dog owners to gain more control of their dogs, and also enhances communications and relationships between dogs and owners when on outdoor adventures together.
We also have a specialized in-kennel-boarding and training program conducted by our experienced team here at Wolfen 1, and the friendly owners of the Mine Hill Kennel in New Milford, CT. Together, we provide all the training your dog needs. We offer a 6-week training program that teaches extensive training, which includes basic, and advanced obedience training.
At week 5 of the training program, owners are asked to join their pups at the kennel to help their dogs in their transition from trainer to owner.
Programs offered at the kennel include:
- Attention Getters
- Sit Methods
- Down Methods
- Heel & Come
At week 5, owners join the program to assist dogs in the transition from trainer to owner, and to help establish themselves as their dog’s director and leader.
