Training & Behavioral

Often people feel they must give up their dog for various reasons. If you can find a solution to the problems, and help make your dog a member of the family in good standing, that's one less dog that needs rescuing, and both the dog and the humans will be happier.  Dogs are living creatures, capable of fear, love, pain, loneliness and joy. They should never be considered disposable property, for they should be considered members of the family.

We have provided a link below, hopefully you will find some information alternatives to help you keep your dog. If you would like the name and phone number to our recommended trainers, please contact us and we are happy to put you in touch with a local trainer. 

BE THE PACK LEADER 


Owners must take their dogs for daily pack walks to satisfy their migration instincts. The dog must not walk in front of the human who is holding the lead, as the pack leader goes first. The dog must walk beside or behind the human. The objective in training this dog is to achieve pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack
When we humans live with dogs 

 
we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. Because a dog communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting, all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs. That is the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success.
