The bond between a dog and their owner is a strong one. Training allows a productive and positive synergy between the two parties and engages your dog on a new physical and mental level. Having the right trainer and the right training environment is critical. Here is our philosophy:
A GOOD TRAINER MUST...
...create the mutual respect and adoration for dog and handler. The two must become one team.
...keep dog and handler on a comfort level that makes learning fun and playful. Show the dog.
...keep dog and handler safe.
...handle and show various breeds and venues.
...know about the health issues of growing dogs, older dogs, sports injuries, prevention and cures.
...have many training techniques because different dogs learn in different ways. Ultimately the dog performs skills with vigor and enthusiasm.
...be a good listener and good reader to body language of the dog. Teach the dog to listen, think, and respond without using gimmicks or training aids.
...respect concerns of dogs and owners.
...provide a family environment with dog lovers coming together, supporting one another with a positive attitude, praise, and adoration!
THANKS everyone for a wonderful "25" years! You have taught me so much and have volunteered for everything. As I merge into my retirement a few things will change, so please know I appreciate all of you, past and present, and I survived only because of your support
