Rambunctious Pup Courses

These courses are for puppies and dogs of any age.  Great for dogs who are overly social, overly excited, lack self control or personal space, jump or mouth on visitors or family, considered to have high arousal, dart out of doors, are difficult to walk on a leash without distractions or pull and excitedly vocalize towards people or other dogs while walking on leash.  They do not cover how to desensitize a dog who is reactive towards people, cars or other animals.

We teach you so much more than just some cues to manage behaviors, we go over how your dog thinks and how to teach them what behavior you're looking for.  Rather than focus on telling your dog to respond to cues after they preform an undesired behavior we teach you how to show them what behavior you're looking for.  The result is a stronger bond between you and your dog with a dog who willingly offers behaviors before needing to be told what to do.

Each course option covers the following material, our in person courses and our board and train program offer more support throughout and after completing.

  • How dogs learn through luring, shaping and capturing wanted behavior

  • Motivators and how to use them

  • Why we don't punish unwanted behavior

  • How to socialize a puppy or dog of any age by creating positive associations and building a strong bond with their owners

  • The Nothing Exercise (a calming exercise)

  • eye contact

  • leave it

  • take

  • drop

  • hand targeting

  • recall

  • who's that

  • sit

  • wait

  • release

  • loose leash walking

  • place (on a mat, bed or crate)

  • switching cues to every day behaviors

  • proofing the behaviors
