Is a Board and Train the Best Option?
We at Colonial Dog Training believe that the board and train method of dog training is not the most effective. We’ve seen first-hand evidence of this; we’ve seen it fail. If you’re training your dog to behave well in your home and with you, then the training should involve both you and your home. A dog’s home environment and relationship with their owner is the primary focus of our in-home dog training. Dog training that does not involve the home environment isn’t addressing the dog properly. We teach you to become the trainer for your dog and we do it in the home environment so that when we leave, your dog is left in your capable hands.
Some dog trainers offer services that involve the dog going to a facility for an extended period of time to have their behavioral issues addressed. This method may show change in the dog after it’s completed, but the training can’t stand up to all the tests that come when the dog is back in their home environment. This is often where their triggers for bad behavior exist, and the dog hasn’t learned how to overcome them through practical experience.
Colonial Dog Training provides in-home training to the entire Buffalo area. We offer a rewards-based approach, which means we set your dog up for success by teaching them to make the right choices. Our customized dog training focuses on the details of your specific situation, which out-of-home training simply doesn’t do. We master your dog’s behavioral issues by working from the inside out, meaning we start in the home and gradually move into outside environments where newer, less predictable distractions lie. We work with several other dog trainers, including a dog trainer in Marion County who also believes the in-home method is the best method.
Colonial Dog Training offers in-home training sessions for dogs of all ages, sizes, and dispositions. We’re experienced training dogs with issues like separation anxiety, hyperactivity and even moderate to severe aggression. We succeed where other dog trainers have failed by utilizing a proven method with nearly three decades of success behind it. When we meet with you at your in-home consultation we’ll observe you and your dog, explain more about our training philosophy, and work with you to develop a training program tailored to your needs specifically. Another bonus: Our training doesn’t end after a certain number of lessons because it’s commitment-based. We work with you until all of our training goals are attained.
