TRAINING

Creating Realistic Expectations

Before the first lesson, Kevin has each owner prepare a list of their life with their dog. This list (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!) is the starting point of the first lesson. Many, if not all, of the problems on the list are fixed in the first lesson, and a few lessons later, training is completed. But most importantly, the lines of communication have been opened to allow the relationship between owner and dog to grow. 

Dealing with Specific Dog Problems

Common complaints like housebreaking, jumping up, coming when called, staying off furniture, destructive chewing, etc. have easy methods of correction. More serious problems like dog aggression take longer to control.  Kevin has dealt with almost every problem and situation between dog and owner.
