Dog Training Near Me

Paul’s biggest strength is his versatility. Years of experience gave him insight into dealing with dogs of all kinds, from top competitive sport dogs to everyday home pets, from the most aggressive rescue dogs to health service companions. His techniques are best described as a combination of field dog obedience methods with positive base training. When asked about what makes him such a good coach and counselor, Paul describes his mindset as a combination of the perspectives of a veterinarian, a lawyer and a shrink. Calling his unique method the ”perspective-based training”, he emphasizes approaching every difficult training scenario from multiple viewpoints, taking into account both the angles of the dog and the owners.

Behavior problems are a frequent indication that your dog isn’t happy, either.

  • Early intervention is always optimal but not always possible, as with a recently adopted dog.
  • The key is to start at the first sign of a problem.

My Methods

  • Many behavior problems can be difficult to solve on your own, especially if they have been present for a number of years.
  • Discipline or punishment cannot teach, let alone resolve behavior problems.
  • In all of my training programs we utilize a combination of science-based (and proven) behavior modification, loving care and specially designed activities that bring out the best in a dog, teach him new skills and ways to cope with anxiety and fear – which is an underlying factor in most cases of aggression.

Day Training for Adolescent Dogs

  • This job can include:
    1. sitting instead of jumping
    2. focusing on you instead of barking
    3. waiting at an open door…etc.
  • Small groups of peers and wise older dogs that act as role models

Day Training for Dogs with Behavior Problems

  • Dogs cope with fear, trauma and loss with behavioral changes.
  • When our problems go unsolved they tend to multiply, and it’s the same with dogs.

Newly Adopted Dogs

  • Day Training can provide experiences that build confidence and promote a healing, trusting bond between you.

  • The first weeks with a puppy are the most stressful for people and puppies alike.

  • Socializing your puppy will make all the difference between having a dog you can take anywhere and one that stays home or in a locked car because he is unmanageable.
