TAKE THE LEAD
What Is a Pack Leader?
Being a Pack Leader means having the respect and attention of your dog. Pack Leaders make the rules and set the boundaries with clear communication, most of which is non-verbal. They provide structure through adequate physical and mental stimulation. They are fair and give affection and attention at the appropriate times. A well-led dog will often look to the Pack Leader for direction, guidance, and assurance. Pack Leaders do not bully or dominate their pack members into compliance or submission. They teach, guide, motivate and have reasonable expectations based on the current level of the dogs understanding.
Dog Training Simplified
The dog training world can be so confusing with endless opinions and misinformation about dog training. Not to mention judgemental and condescending dog trainers and those with unusual and eccentric methods. It's hard to know what works, what applies and what doesn't. Should you correct or punish your dog? If so, when, how, and to what extent? Should you use food or are you just bribing them? Will you need to use food and treats forever? Is it okay for your dog to be on the furniture, beg for food, bite and nip during play or greet guests at the door? How many times should you say a command before it yields a response? My job is to adequately answer all of your questions and provide you with all of the information, techniques, and tools that are available and needed for you to be successful. From basic to off-leash obedience, dog walking to behavior modification, I'm here to help. My goal is to simplify dog training and help you and your dog establish a clear line of communication so your dog understands exactly what you want and expect from them while looking to you for direction.
Your Success Is My Business
I am 100% committed to you, my client. Whether I'm staying an extra 10 minutes to make sure we've covered everything or making myself available to you outside of training sessions to answer any questions, I go above and beyond expectations. I thrive when you make progress and reach your goals. Allow me to break down, simplify, and guide you through the dog training or rehabilitation process.
"Tony is the best dog trainer! He is so patient not only with my rescued Border Collie/Shepherd mix, Fender, he is very patient with me. (The owner, who had never trained a dog in my life!) He taught us basic obedience, commands, addressed all of my concerns, gave me guidelines and advice. He cares about the success of our dog and his transition into our family. The best training is done in the household and Tony will come to you. What more can you ask for? Anytime I had a question he was available. Your dog/s are in excellent hands. Don't wait, do it now. Call him!"
