You love your dog but not all her canine behaviors: pulling on walks, barking, chewing, jumping up, growling over her bowl, or demanding attention while you’re helping with homework or cooking dinner.
It could be that you are about to bring home a “pandemic puppy” or adult dog, and are wondering about socialization, housebreaking, and teaching basic manners.
You might have had dog training on your to-do list forever, but now have some time to tackle it.
You’re enjoying more time outside with your dog but he seems to have forgotten how to come when called.
Even during this time of social distancing, I can help, with live, online dog training for you and your dog in the comfort of your home. You’ll receive personalized, one-on-one sessions and everyone in the house can join in during the live online session or watch the recording afterwards.
We’ll work together using modern, science-based positive reinforcement methods, never harsh or punitive measures. You’ll simply need a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer with a webcam, and an Internet connection.
The first step: an Initial Consultation. After we meet, I’ll recommend a course of training that covers Behavior Essentials or create a custom plan for your and your dog’s needs. Then, you’ll book your live online training sessions for Behavior Essentials or a custom training plan for the help you need (see below).
Wine and snacks optional!
“I have a six month old puppy and we have struggled with potty training for months. We were doing great at night, but having lots of accidents during the day. I am brand new to dogs having not only never had them before, but never even being around them!
“I hired multiple trainers before meeting Janice, and while we definitely benefited from those trainers as well, we still struggled with our number one issue of potty training. This was causing lots of stress in my household. Janice provided me detailed step by step instructions and advice in a way that was exactly what we needed. We have been following her instructions with tremendous success! Not only has our puppy been doing great, but we finally feel like we know what we’re doing. I will absolutely go back to Janice for any additional training needs in the future!”
“Behavior Essentials” is the perfect option for a new puppy or dog in the home or a way to brush up your dog’s manners. Older dogs can learn new behavior!
Puppy lessons typically cover:
– what to chew - and not chew
– learning that new people and situations are fun, not scary
– getting comfy in a crate
– coat-brushing, tooth-brushing, nail trimming
– beginning manners such as down, stay, and coming when called
Older dog lessons typically cover:
– sitting to say please
– down and stay quietly on a mat
– relaxing in a crate
– walking politely on leash
– leave it, wait
– coming when called
