As professional Dog Trainers In Minneapolis, we have discovered that there are three Primary Key Elements necessary for effective dog training:
The Key Elements are:
1. Educate the Handler, or the “pack-leader”.
Yes, that is you. In order to be an effective dog handler you must think of yourself as the pack-leader and trainer. Understanding how your dog learns and using that knowledge to stimulate motivation is vital. By using my training methods, you will achieve complete control and reliability from your dog in all situations.
2. Creating your dog’s Drive and Focus. This is the fun part!
Discovering your dog’s instinctive drive to play and combining it with other proven methods, will empower you to super-charge your dog’s motivation and capacity to learn.
3. Training your dog to reliably understand your commands and obey your standards of conduct.
Task related commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” “down,” and “heel,” are basic obedience commands that will establish a foundation for most of your dog’s life, as well as keep you dog safe. By effectively conditioning your dog’s response to your voice commands means that your dog will learn to respond in a reliable manner upon the first command. Even with distractions or whether they’re near or far away from you. You and your dog will easily and quickly become what we used to refer to in our Police K-9 Unit as a Solid Team!
