Having owned well trained dogs all my life, I joined Midwest Dog Training in 2007 to team up with the founder. Having good success with Midwest Dog Training’s system, I decided to dedicate my livelihood to training dogs. Since I purchased it in 2009, I have successfully trained well over 2000 dogs. A lot of the success is due to my comprehensive follow up lessons to the dog owners. We show how to effectively train for commands as simple as Come, to conditioning a puppy to get used to it’s new family and environment.
I use psychology and a natural approach to dog training. Understanding the psychology from the evolution similarities and distinct characteristics of the breeds is also important. I also take a natural approach to the consideration of each dogs individual situation such as prior training, any traumatic events, the environment and family life the dog shares.
Training a puppy can be very perplexing, time consuming and stressful at the same time. One of the most important aspects of our training is successful behavior modification. Examples would be jumping , mouthing, nipping , barking, digging , chewing, separation anxiety as well as potty training and aggression.
Being not only a trainer of obedience but a behaviorist, I work a 7 state area in the midwest using positive reinforcement and other humane & comfortable means of behavior modification. From 15 week old puppies to older mature dogs that need rehabilitated. I also take in consideration the breed, individual situation, background and environment of household to get you a better quality relationship with your furry friend.
Training is an ongoing process of growth and enhanced communication between your family and your four legged friend. Choose between the In-Home lessons which are very effective for dogs that need better skills and a few undesirable behaviors to go away. Or choose our comprehensive 3 week Board and Train option where we train all aspects of obedience and behavior then do a private lesson with you for a couple hours to understand the minimal maintenance as well as training procedures.
With both programs, we guarantee our training and give a free lifetime support as long as you own your dog. You can and will be conditioned to achieve your training goals.
