Welcome to Pet Dog Solutions - Addressing Common Problem Behaviors
Hello, thank you for making the decision to invest in your pet’s education, and welcome to Pet Dog Training Solutions - Addressing Common Problem Behaviors
We consider it an honor that you are trusting us to help guide you on this journey together.
In this program, we have broken down all the key components needed to support you in your learning. We have divided this into multiple sections. The order in which you teach each section is your choice and will depend on your dog and your needs within your family.
Although we cover the most common problem behaviors - the ones that owners ask us about on a daily basis - some of the behaviors included might not be a problem for you and your family. In fact, what one family considers a problem, another family, whose dog exhibits the same behavior, might not consider it a problem at all. Take jumping up, for example. A family with a small dog who jumps up to greet them might not view this as problematic but a family with a larger breed would undoubtedly do so.
We do, however, address all of the behaviors included, in a way that will help you improve both your training skills and your relationship with your dog. We encourage you to take advantage of all the fantastic resources and train all of the skills!
Please note that, although this is a stand-alone program, it will, undoubtedly, work best if you also implement a socialization program. Some 'problem' behaviors can occur due to a lack of positive socialization or misinterpretation of a dog's behavior. If you haven't already done so, we highly recommend you also register for Pet Dog Training Solutions - Your Guide to Positive Socialization
