You may have bought a puppy over the winter and now that it is summer and you want to go for some long walks, you realize that no matter how far you walk, you can never tire your dog out. And on the walk your dog is pulling like crazy. The walks are getting more and more unpleasant for you. It seems that every time your fully grown puppy sees another dog, the pulling and the barking are getting worse and worse. And you dare not ever let him off the leash because he never comes when he is called.
Believe it or not all these problems can be fixed with good solid common sense dog training. And that is exactly what we do. Good Solid Common Sense dog training….no magic and no gimmicks.
This summer we are offering several classes at DueNorth. We will begin in early June with our basic dog training classes. In this class we will focus on teaching dogs to walk on a loose leash. And that includes distractions. Now when you go on walks with your dog you can start to use your walks as training opportunities. Teaching your dog to come will also be introduced. There are so many things that we do that inadvertently teach dogs not to come. We address these in our classes. We use a balanced approach of corrections and praise. Dogs can learn to have self control. It is simply common sense!
In addition to this we have weekly group competition obedience classes for those owners who have a dog that they wish to compete with. We will work with you to solve any problem that you may have. We prefer to use some food in this training class but balanced with some kind corrections to help your dog to understand the exercises and what you want him to do. Here at DueNorth we have produced 4 Utility level dogs, more than anyone else in the Peterborough area.
One of our most popular classes are our private e-collar lessons. This is the most effective way of all methods to train your dog. It gets a bad reputation from those that have never used it before but after one free lesson it is easy to see how soft and gentle this method can be. And the results are stunningly reliable.
We also do puppy consultations. We feel that puppies are best socialized with stable adult dogs. In one lesson we can give you lots of choices to socialize your puppy safely and without spending a fortune on puppy lessons. And with that lesson we will also provide grooming tips and fun obedience lessons.
If you feel like walking your dog is more of a chore than a pleasant experience, think about training your dog. It will be more enjoyable for both of you.
