DOES YOUR DOG...
1) Seem unpredictable around strangers?
2) Appear to be dominant with you or other family members?
3) Go crazy when he sees other dogs on walks?
5) Guard his toys or his food from people or other dogs in the family?
6) Makes you wonder if your dog is beyond hope?
Treats or no treats? Collars or no collars? Too much praise or not enough praise? Positive or negative reinforcement? We incorporate a variety of tools to fit your pups needs and your goals: food, motivators (tennis balls, Frisbees, etc.), slip leads, flat buckle leashes, prong collars, e-collars, as well as utilize many different methodologies such as Perception Modification, pressure release, Conditioned Relaxation just to name a few. Our goal is to help your pup make good decisions and the right choices enough times until these behaviors become “learned behaviors” and he is making these decisions on their own. High distraction training helps to proof this in all situations life may give us.
You don't have to be an expert in behavior science to have a better life with your dog.This is what we are here for, to show you the way.
K9 Expert are the experts you are looking for knowing how animals learn but how to apply that knowledge with your dog in your home. K9 expert uses proven reward-based methods, we never use pain or fear in the name of training.
DOG BEHAVIOR & TRAINING
K9 expert understands it is sometimes hard to live with a frightened or aggressive dog. K9 expert will walk you through the behavior change process with kindness and patience. Having an expert to help is a start. But having one who also understands and cares about you and your dog is essential.
COMPASSIONATE LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Dogs who bark, lunge, growl, snarl and bite can be frightening. Living with a dog like that can also be heart wrenching and confusing. K9 expert is known internationally for their compassionate and effective approach to helping dogs with these kinds of problems.
Our Dog Trainers
The trainers at The K9 Expert are knowledgeable of all proven training methods, as well as state of the art behavioral modification methods. During a free evaluation, the trainer will educate you on your dog’s behaviors, causes of these behaviors, the methods recommended to change these behaviors, the pros and cons of each method and make a professional recommendation regarding which style will produce the results you desire. The most important part is NOT that your dog learns the “Come” command, but that he will do it no matter what else is going on. In other words, what good is the “Come” command if your dog will only perform it in a sterile environment? The same is true for all commands. For example, anyone can teach their dog to “Sit” on the kitchen floor, but can you get your dog to “Sit” at the park as other people, dogs, and kids walk by? Your dog should listen to you whether you are in your kitchen, at the local park, or in the middle of a three ring circus. In addition, the owner plays a major role in the success of any dog obedience program. Of course we can teach your dog to perform for us, but our specialty lies in the ability to transfer these skills to you and every member of your family regardless of age, size, or strength (as long as he or she can speak clearly or give hand signals).
Our Formula For Success
Our “recipe for success” has produced successful results for thousands of dogs. Together, we will teach your dog things you had no idea he was capable of learning, and teach you things you didn’t know you were capable of! You will obtain an obedient, trustworthy, and calmer companion for the rest of your lives. Sure, a reliable dog makes your life easier, but more importantly your dog’s life just got a lot better. Why? Because when you are washing your car in the driveway he can now be with you instead of locked away. He can now go to the soccer games instead of staying at home in the back yard. He can now be inside when guests are visiting without jumping all over them. Again, we cannot emphasize enough that obedience awards FREEDOM in the dog world. Your best friend will be forever grateful for this gift, and the bond you will build in the process is priceless.
