Your Trusted Therapy Dog Trainer

Wolfen1 dog training programs focus on the most important aspects of raising a dog. Most dog owners think that dog training is only about making a dog obedient to our every command, but it doesn’t have to be this way. This type of training is different than regular basic obedience training or advanced obedience trainingWe serve clients in Brookfield, Danbury, New Milford and throughout Western CT.

There are a few qualities that your dog should possess if you wish to have them act as therapy dogs. This includes:

  • Enjoys meeting new people
  • Can follow basic obedience cues like sit, come or leave it
  • Can be calm and sit still during visits

What We Will Teach Your Therapy Dog

Not all dogs are ready to be therapy dogs. If your dog is growling, barking, or shy, it is nowhere near ready and will need behavior modification training. It is important to understand that if your dog posses an aggressive personality, it cannot act as a therapy dog. However, we can work with you towards your dog becoming ready. With us, your dog will learn how to be comfortable around new people, environments, animals and sounds.

This will improve the socialization of your dog, so he can meet many new people and accept all of the attention that being a therapy dog entails. Your dog will be more comfortable with eye contact, petting, and handling of its nails and paws.

In order for your dog to become a therapy dog, it must learn both basic and advanced training commands. Some examples of basic cues are “sit”, “down” and “come”. Once your companion learns these skills, we will begin to teach it even more complex commands that are necessary for therapy dogs such as “leave it”. “Leave it” is an important command, especially when visiting hospitals or nursing homes, seeing that you won’t want your dog to pick up and swallow a pill that was accidentally dropped on the ground. It is also important for therapy dogs to be trained to hold positions until directed to release from the said position. This command is beneficial in many different circumstances and goes beyond the general command of ‘stay’. We will also teach your dog how to walk with a loose leash without pulling it and give you his attention when you ask. Our trainer can visit your home in Brookfield, New Milford, Danbury and surrounding towns.

The Purpose of Therapy Dogs

However, they are not exactly like service dogs, because they aren’t trained to execute specific tasks for disabled people. 

Because service dogs help individuals who for example are blind, they are also able to accompany the individuals in settings like planes or restaurants.

Instead we can train your dog to visit patients at locations like schools, retirement homes and hospitals.
