You just brought home a fluffy ball of joy as the newest family member. After the initial oohs and aahs of cuteness, you'll find out that your new puppy is quite the monster. Chewing, whining, nipping and accidents in the house are all common puppy behaviors. In order to avoid these behaviors and prevent worse ones from becoming a habit, early puppy training is essential. Dog Training Elite has experienced puppy trainers on staff that can help you build an obedient and loyal bond with your new canine companion.
Benefits of Early Puppy Training
- Preventing Bad Behavior -- Dogs often develop problem behaviors early on and if these behaviors are not quickly addressed then it can be difficult to correct them in the future. Early obedience training teaches dogs proper behavior and works to eliminate bad, negative actions.
- Establishing Respect -- Your dog looks up to you for guidance and is often eager to please in training sessions. By effectively engaging and teaching your dog the right way to behave, he or she will learn to respect your commands.
- Ensuring Safety -- Many obedience training commands are meant to keep your dog safe from harm. Commands such as “stop” and “come” could prevent your dog from bolting out into traffic or running away from home.
- Creating Bonds -- Dogs love to engage with their humans, whether it's play, snuggling, or learning. Training your dog is an activity that you both share and encourages a healthy, loving bond.
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.
