- Dog Training
Does your dog seem to lose his mind when someone rings the doorbell? Or does he try to bite you when you try to pick up his food bowl or growl when you try to move him off the couch? Or does he bark/lunge at people or other dogs during walks? These common, but unacceptable, behavior issues are best dealt with through an in-home behavior plan in which the dog is carefully taught a new framework for responding to daily events.
TruHartK9's training programs are individually constructed based on your dog's needs but require time and commitment on the part of the owner for successful implemenation. Contrary to what you may see on television, there are very few quick fixes in changing most problem behaviors! And if a Dog Trainer suggests an INSTANT FIX, it's likely a band-aid to the problem and often causes further behavioral issues in the future. During our unique training program owners are also counseled on appropriate management of the dog throughout the treatment program to ensure the absolute best and long term results.
