COMMON SENSE DOG TRAINING

We will help you prepare your dog for a lifetime of good behavior and companionship! Learn how to understand your dog's behavior and develop skills to successfully communicate with your dog. The result will be a happier dog, and strengthened bond.

Many of us cannot imagine life without a dog, We admire and adore them for their loyalty, unconditional affection, playful exuberance and zest for life! Just as you would send a child to school, so should you consider “educating” your dog! To make the most of your relationship with your dog, you need to teach her essential skills that will help her live harmoniously in a human household. Dogs are eager to learn and communication is the key to success - that’s what we are here for - to teach you how to successfully communicate with your dog and have fun doing it!

Puppy class is so much fun! It’s amazing how fast puppies learn. Classes focus on puppy biting, socialization with other dogs and people, calming and handling, attention, basic obedience skills (come, sit, down, stand, stay, heel and walk on leash) and household manners (crate training, toilet training and chew toy training). Our expert instructors will teach you how to use food in training without it becoming a bribe so that your puppy responds reliably whether you have food or not as well as how to use games (like tug-of-war) as a reward in training. Early training is always a positive, fun experience here at the Lodge!
