For the love of Dog – dog training

Enjoy a well trained dog

O’Neal Scott, Master Trainer 40 years experience training

You can have a dog with obedience and manners and enjoy an outstanding, loving, and trusting relationship.

New puppy addition to your family?  A loved dog of many years? Experience and share a most rich life together.  Dogs bring such joy to our lives.  Over the years I’ve discovered what is often missed – dogs need to be helped to understand what it is we want of them.  Dogs are most eager to please and pay close attention to their people and communication.  Often the messages are all over the board resulting in frustrated people and a confused dog.  

Years of experience of looking through both a person’s eyes and a dog’s eyes I’ve gotten to see and know how, where and why dog problems happen.  Your challenges are quickly identified.  Barking, digging, jumping, running off are often symptoms of a deeper problem.

Inexperienced trainers give solutions to the symptoms and while you feel good for a few days or weeks; you guessed it, the underlying concern is not addressed and the family continues to suffer behavior problems.  By getting to the source of the issue, many behavioral concerns simply fall away.  The pleasure of being a dog family returns and everyone enjoys a much happier and rewarding life.

Did you know that most dogs at the pound and rescue centers suffer from behavior problems?  They were not given the training to help them be valued members of the family and community.  And dog training is not rocket science.  (Wink)  It’s basic consistent kind training to lay a solid foundation of loving care creating an environment where your dog learns to trust you and turns to you for guidance.  Imagine how good that feels for everyone.

Here are signs you can use some help:

Yelling at your dog as he runs away.
Repeating commands over and over and over.
The dog is afraid of you.
You are frustrated and even angry at your dog.
Crating the dog for hours.
Your dog lives in the backyard often alone.
You experience one or more of the top behavior concerns (barking, aggression, chewing, jumping up, digging, door darting, running off, begging for food, destructive behavior, fear of noises, unruliness, inappropriate elimination).

End the suffering. Bring on the joy of dog love.

A person who has training of dog training knows the pleasure of a happy responsive dog.  This duo is easy to recognize.  They are besties.  Where you see one, you see the other close by and engaged with each other.  A relationship like this draws attention and others take note and comment.  You receive compliments.  Yes you do.  Doors open.  Your dog is so popular that her presence is requested.  You begin to feel your dog is more popular and loved than you are – and you wouldn’t have it any other way.  Dog love.  It’s the best feel good and oh so rewarding.
