Basic Obedience Training For Your Dog
Finding an obedience trainer for your dog seems simple. Google the nearest dog training school, call and sign up, right? Not so fast . . .
There are many factors that go into choosing the right training school for you and your dog. Certainly distance is a consideration; however, convenience shouldn’t be the only factor that influences your decision. Other things like training methods, appropriate classes for your needs, compatibility of the instructor’s personality with yours, and certifications of the instructor should also play a role.

Having a dog in your life should provide you with great joy and companionship - not extra burden or an endless source of frustration, as is so often the case.
This is what I personally consider to be crucial, and always strive for when training my own dogs:
To raise a well respected canine citizen. I want happy, involved, outgoing dogs who are valued and trusted members of the community.
To build a genuinely strong owner-dog relationship based on trust, co-operation and well defined roles.
To have confidence in, and control of my dogs in any situation - including around kids and other animals.
To work with my dog's natural drives and instincts, not against them.
Absolutely no cruelty or harsh "old school" dog training techniques. I certainly don't believe you have to "break a dog's spirit" in the training process.
