What your dog will learn
Your dog will receive training on all on-leash obedience training, some off-leash obedience training (for more experienced dogs), safe socialization, targeted behavior training, and you will be given daily exercises to continue the training at home for the long-term.
What obedience training includes:
At The End Of The Training Your Dog Will Have Mastered The Following:
Be less reactive to distractions (dogs, people & noises)
Have better manners (With Humans & Other Dogs)
What safe socialization means:
Safe socialization in dog training refers to the process of introducing and exposing a dog to various people, animals, environments, and experiences in a positive and controlled manner. The goal of socialization is to help the dog develop confidence, good behavior, and appropriate social skills, reducing the likelihood of fear, anxiety, and aggression in different situations. Remember that each dog is unique, and some dogs may be more sensitive or fearful than others. The professional dog trainers at Cali K9 learn your dog's individual personality and temperament and slowly and gradually guide them through the socialization process.
What targeted behavior training means:
Targeted behavior training refers to a focused and specific approach to teach a dog particular behaviors or skills. Targeted behavior training hones in on teaching a dog a single behavior at a time. We first identify the specific behavior or skill that we want the dog to learn. It could be something basic like "sit" or "stay," or a more complex behavior like "heeling" while walking. Once the desired behavior is identified, it is broken down into smaller, manageable steps. This helps the dog understand and learn the behavior more effectively. We define clear and achievable goals for each training session. This helps both the trainer and the dog stay focused on the specific behavior being targeted. Positive reinforcement is a key element of targeted behavior training. It involves rewarding the dog with treats, praise, or toys when they exhibit the desired behavior. This positive feedback reinforces the behavior and encourages the dog to repeat it. Repeating the training sessions regularly and consistently helps the dog solidify the new behavior in their repertoire. Targeted behavior training is effective because it allows for a clear focus on individual skills, which can be especially helpful for dogs with specific behavior issues or those learning more advanced commands.
