A Plus Dog Training philosophy is there is not only one way to train every dog and owner. Dog training is as much training the owner as training the dog. Our combination of positive reinforcement, positive motivation and, when necessary, correction avoidance has helped many dog owners realize their dogs potential for behaving and learning. Ninety percent of A Plus Dog Training clients started out just wanting their dog to behave better; stop excessive barking, not pull on the leash, come when called, stop jumping on counters, stop stealing food, stop jumping on people. It is absolutely true that the majority of clients would not believe that their dogs would EVER behave but the picture above is worth a thousand words. Many clients continue to come to classes because they enjoy the camaraderie of other dog owners AND their dogs enjoy the training time with their owners. Not only is training good for your dog but it is good for you. Exercise is an important factor in our daily lives and most of us don’t have the time to devote to regular workouts and/or health club visits. Attending regular classes is a great way to obtain good exercise for both you and your dog. Attending agility classes takes that exercise to a whole new level.
