Relationships depend on clear communication, respect, empathy, consideration, and kindness. Communication and training with any species is a two-way street that involves listening, observing, and then relaying information. Your pup is constantly learning everyday so you might as well help him learn the appropriate behaviors! Ultimately, training your dog can help him become a participating member of your family. He will know what is expected and gain confidence in his environment. This will create a wonderful relationship of trust and understanding. I look forward to helping you on this journey with your precious pup. - Leeann Holloway, CPDT-KA
Congratulations to our recent Puppy Kindergarten Class Graduates!
Mat training is such a versatile behavior. Ralphie and his older sister Betty are learning to go to their separate mats when it is time for them to relax and chill. You can also use mat training at the vet, in the car, at Grandma's house or during dinner time. All good things come from getting on your mat!
