Dog Training is Communication
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 every day, 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.

Wow, what a great program! In just 3 sessions we were able to get our 1 year old chocolate lab doing great walking on his leash. The one-on-one training was spot on and just what he needed.
Just want to send you a huge thanks for helping to get Juno off to a good start. Your class was invaluable in helping her to build confidence, and it was fun for me to see her kindness and playfulness.
Baxter likes all the instructors and I believe he has fun in class! It was ALWAYS encouraging and never punitive or rough. Baxter learned but still has lots of spirit!!!

Pups Grow Up dog training workshops are for pups under a year and comfortable around other dogs. If you feel like your dog may be stressed in a class situation or is over 1 year of age, consider our in-home training sessions.

Benefits of Mat Training

Duration, distance and distractions
Teaching a pup to station or lie down on a mat is a foundation skill we teach in our levels training classes and during home visits. Charlie is 10 weeks old and learning to go to her bed on cue. Her sister is also getting rewarded for staying on her spot (which is the ottoman) during this training session. Working multiple dogs at the same time can be tricky at first but is essential for maintaining peace in the household. Especially with a new puppy!
Give us a call if you need help teaching your pup to station on a mat while you eat dinner, answer the door, or vacuum the carpet. The applications are endless!
Classes are held in Kettering at the Lucky Dog Daycare.
We travel all over the Dayton area for In-Home consultations.
