What Your Pup Will Learn in Our Labrador Training Program
Labrador puppy training classes are important for early socialization. We offer puppy group classes that will expose your Labrador to other dogs and people. Between group classes and in-home sessions, your professional dog trainer will be able to notice any potential problem behaviors and correct them before your Labrador puppy becomes an adult dog. At Dog Training Elite, we also offer service dog training for Labradors as well. Programs covered include: autism companion, diabetic alert, therapy dog, PTSD assistance and mobility assistance.
Our Labrador training programs cover the following commands and training milestones:
- Crate training and house breaking
- Problem behavior correction
- Impulse control
- Heel and leash etiquette
- Basic obedience commands like come, sit, stay, place and more
Our Balanced Theory
We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.
Empowering OwnersWe empower owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
Continued TrainingAdditional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
Lifetime InvestmentWe follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
Satisfaction RatingsOur high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.
