It's no fun for anyone when a dog misbehaves. It's not fun for him, because he is being scolded all the time! It certainly isn't fun for you, as you struggle to figure out how to stop him from jumping on your guests or pulling on leash. A misbehaving dog can result in stress between family members, as you argue with each other the best way to discipline. You may find you do not feel as close to you little buddy as you once did. In extreme cases, you may even feel that you may need to re-home your dog.
At Laying Down the Paw, we believe in positive reinforcement based dog training that strengthens the relationship between dog and owner. As an added bonus, the human relationships often follow suit!
Dogs are constantly being told what not to do. This leaves them to figure out the rest on their own, which often is what gets them into trouble! We will focus on what you want your dog to do. Whether you are at your wit's end with your dog, or you just want to teach your old dog some new tricks, we can help!
Your dog is looking to you to be a confident, benevolent leader; let us show you how!
