Service Description

At Good Dogs Stay, all adult dog training programs are considered to be behavioral modification programs. This is due to the fact that, opposed to the “clean slate” of training a puppy, adult dogs already have many ingrained habits and behaviors - and often many of them are undesired! In these cases, the unwanted behaviors have to be extinguished through positive reinforcement while new behaviors are installed. Some dogs take to training more easily, depending on things like temperament, but other dogs are just plain stubborn and it takes time to convince them that they should change their ways! Adult behavior modification programs last between 3 and 15 months depending on the dog’s starting point. Adult programs will build on training the dog may have already received in the past, reinforcing: - Sit - Stay - Down - Come - Loose Leash Walking Skills We will also install: - Impulse control - Manners - Go Visit - Mat - Work on Jumping on people - Demand Barking - Boundary Manners Note: All Good Dogs Stay training packages train to the “Good Dog 15” behaviors: - Sit - Stay - Name Game - Leash Training - Bite Inhibition - Appropriate Play - Kennel Training - Recall Game - Beginning and Advanced Focus - Beginning and Advanced Greetings - Beginning and Advanced Recall - Place - Touch - Barking control - 2 tricks for fun
