Your dogs behaviour isn't only affecting their lifestyle.
It's affecting yours!
*Have you stopped having friends and family visit because of how your dog behaves?
*Do you wish you could take your dog with you to social activities?
*Do you just want to live in harmony and enjoy life with your dog?
When our dogs are poorly behaved, it impacts our daily lives in ways we never expected.
And you are not alone!
Obedience is a form of control when we are not sure how to communicate, when we are disconnected in some way. Yes, obedience is an important life skill for a dog, but we don’t teach it until we have taught communication first. Obedience is the equivalent of academics for people. We don’t judge the quality of a person on their academic achievements, we look at what kind of person they are.
Are they kind and compassionate or are they mean and hurtful?
Do they communicate well or are they short and/or abrasive?
Are they patient and understanding or are they rude and pushy?
Do they do things for the benefit of their families and community or are they self-centered?
We judge our dogs on a similar set of principles.
We do not teach obedience-only training programs.
