About

After 25 years of training Doberman and other breeds, several people had noticed how obedient these dogs were and had asked for my help with training their dogs. All these years, I was just training my own dogs and helping others. I had thought about becoming a professional dog trainer but just continued to help others; then years later, two different situations, both having rescue dogs came up and, in one case, I heard that they were going to put their dog down. I had, reading this, understood that this was an aggressive dog that was biting family members as well as their other dog among several other complications. The next day, I came to help in this emergency situation and had then come to realize that there is a need for my dog training services. Now, I'm charging for my dog training and counseling services, as I come with several years of vast experience in training dogs and helping individuals and families with their dogs of all ages. I do have experience, from puppies to adult dogs, in several breeds. I have worked with basic training/obedience training and from simple to advanced tracking, working dogs as well as guard dogs. I have coached on several simple tricks that many wanted their dogs to learn. There are many basic training methods as well as training tools, and each breed is different, so they learn and understand differently. Some are slow learners; some are fast, and some are easily distracted. Others are more eager to learn. Every dog is special and unique with different abilities, and it is up to you to bring this out and challenge him, but first you must understand your dog at hand. I am training dogs in and outside of the family home and business. You will learn how to understand your dog as your dog will learn to understand you. This will give a happier, comfortable relationship, and the earlier you get your dog into training, the better. Look at it as habits; there are good habits, and there are bad habits, and you know the saying, "Habits are hard to break." Well, with a good dog trainer, these bad habits can be changed to different positives, and a good trainer will explain in detail or give you some different options. I offer the following: * Tools You will learn the difference between the tools and what will best suit your dog for the situation at hand. I use the basic to advance training tools. Remember, every breed is different as are all the situations, so the right tools for your dog will make the difference. * Tips and tricks Every trainer has his/her methods in training and his/her reasons. I look at several details beyond the dogs, and along the way, there are tips and tricks that you will learn to speed up the training; in most cases, it takes a bit of understanding of your dog. Most of these tips and tricks are very simple; however, some are advanced. Some might depend on how far you want to go with your dog training. I use the three-stage training. * Puppy, basic and advanced, includes the following: - Puppy - Barking - Biting - Jumping - Temperament - Crate training - Come, sit, stay, and heal Basic training completes the first stage of all the above training and a preparation for advance training. Advanced training includes the following: - Service Dog - Seeing Eye Dog - Danger Alarm - Rescue Dog - Warning Dog - Working Dog - Guard Security - Tracking Dog - Sports and Agility - Hunting Dog - Obedience - Pack Training For three-language training, all training is explained and shown in three different languages for your dog to understand and you to communicate. I teach many different tricks. Many simple tricks can lead to an advanced training. There are so many tricks out there; some will amaze your friends, you and your family. The following are a few tricks: - Tracking Tricks - Silly Tricks - Parlor Tricks - Useful Tricks - Jumping Tricks - Agility Tricks - Circus Tricks - Magic Tricks - Kids Tricks - Emergency Tricks - Tricks for Kids and many more For tools, I teach what to use and what not to use. Situations are all different. I use adjustable whistles. There is a free downloadable. I recommend remotes. Remember, do not take advice from just anyone. You can look at training like a chess game; there are strong moves and weak moves, which lead to good and bad habits. Being consistent with your commands and following the same patterns, such are when to eat and when to go out, your dog will know. Keep it simple as it is best for your dog to understand. I like to keep commands short and direct to the point, and you must be consistent. Patience and understanding every breed is different in situations and environments. Hopefully, some of these tips help you, and I wish you the best in relation with your best friend.

  • South Berwick, ME 03908

About

I am a dog trainer/human educator. I go to the home of the dog and his human and help them through everyday issues that are getting in the way of a harmonious dog/human relationship. My program is different from other dog training services that are out there. I start out with a free in-home consultation that we go over specific goals and issues the client would like to work on with the dog. This also gives the client time to get to know what I am like and what my program entails. After this consultation, if we decide to go forward with training, I present the client with a history of the breed of the dog we will be working with and a customized, working, training plan. I like to use the customized training plan as a living, working, guide that changes based on discoveries made throughout the training process. These training plans and any homework are always presented in written form so the client can review and fully understand the steps taken in each session. Clients love the flexibility of having the training done in the comfort of their own home, as well as the flexible time frames I can offer. They also love that we work on what they need to work on to enhance the relationship they have with their dog.

Details
I have a 5 year old Australian Shepherd who is afraid of new people, and barks aggressively. Timid aggression I have heard it called. She has also picked up some aggressive habits from my in-law's pitbull. I believe she needs to spend time with a submissive pack to curb her aggression. She is never aggressive to people she knows well, nor does she have food aggression.
