Dog Training, Group Classes & Boarding
At Perfect Pooch Dog Training our goal is to help you help your dog learn. Learning is achieved when it is practiced daily and consistently. We equip you with the tools and knowledge to continue our lessons at your home. Are you ready to learn? Are you open to trying something new? Our clients might have to come out of their comfort shells a little bit, or undo habits that they've been doing their entire lives. We understand learning something new and quitting bad habits is hard. We've been there! If you need to rant about frustrations we'll listen and then find ways that work with you to help your dog. All we ask is that you listen to our expertise and give our lessons a try. We are committed to a lifelong partnership, between us and you with your dog!
Be The Person Your Dog Thinks You Are
We've all heard the old school advice, punish your dog, yell at your dog, hit your dog, put on a correction collar, alpha roll your dog. These techniques come and fade, but they never quite go away. Why? Because people are looking for a quick fix. If it works a little, they will stick to it. We are fighting a war on inhumane training methods and unfortunately, with media sensationalized punishment based methods taking rein we won't be on top of better training ways anytime soon. Trainers are refusing to update their training methods because they are afraid they will look soft, or don't want to be wrong, or they have failed at excelling at kinder training methods. Whatever their reasons, punishment methods are here to stay even though they should be the ways of the past. Just like we don't use Heroin to cure coughs, or Lobotomies for mood swings, dog training methods have evolved to use positive reinforcement to cure even the most aggressive of dogs and train all dogs to be the perfect pooches we know they are. Here at Perfect Pooch we have made it our mission to treat dogs like Doctors treat their patients. "Do No Harm". With love, patience, proper timing, and understanding, we will mold and shape your dog to be a great member of your family! We also work with you to help form a training team so our time with you with last a lifetime.
