Do all dogs need training??
Yes. When you bring a dog into your home it's important that you and your dog learn to communicate with each other. A great place for that to happen is during training. And training is great for dogs of all ages!
Puppies are adorable, that's why we love them. But there are puppy behaviors that are less than endearing - like chewing the furniture or shoes and house soiling.
Not quite a puppy, but not a calm adult - get ready for adolescent antics! It happens to all dogs - boundless energy and sometimes new (and undesirable) behavior seems to appear out of no where.
Welcome home, Fido! Adding a new dog to the family is exciting. And then the honeymoon is over and it's time to really get to know each other.
Finally, the kids get that dog they've been asking for and all is not going quite as planned. We've been there and can help!
