Why In-home Dog Training Is Best
If you were learning to play baseball, you wouldn’t do it in a hockey rink or on a basketball court. Not many would argue with that, but this illustrates why some methods of dog training are flawed. If you’re trying to train your dog to behave when they’re in your home or just with you in general, then their training should be centered on you and the home you live in. If dog training doesn’t involve you and the dog’s home environment then it’s impossible to address a dog as a whole, as these are inseparable aspects of the dog’s life that make them what they are. Our goal is to teach you to become the trainer for your dog, not rely on anyone else to fill that role, and we train you in your home environment so that when we depart your dog is left in your able hands.
Some dog trainers have programs that involve taking your dog to a facility for a certain amount of time and then picking them up when their “fixed.” Other programs simply involve you taking your dog to a school where you learn to train them yourself. Both of these methods are missing something: the inclusion of both you and the home environment in the training, which are two of the largest parts of your dog’s life. These methods can produce results, but they don’t hold up when the dog encounters their triggers in the environments where they live.
