The Best Dog TrainersDog Trainers in Sacramento

  Why People Choose Us Over Food Trainers

You want someone who can get your dog to obey your voice quickly without yelling, violence or bribing with food. Who wants a dog who doesn't listen unless you have treats?

Obedience is you asking your dog to do something and he does it because you say so, and not because the dog is going to get food or be punished.

Be forewarned, the words "Positive Reinforcement, Luring and Operant Conditioning." are code for bribing with food. Folks, don't waste your time and money on this nonsense and call us to learn how to train your dog fast without food or violent methods.

The cruelest method is the one where the dog never gets trained.

  CLASSES. . .Just About The Worst Way To Train Your Dog

MYTHS EXPOSED

Dogs need both private lessons and classes.

False When you hear this the trainer will start you at home and then tell you to take a few classes, knowing most people drop out and then he will not have to do the rest of your home lessons. Classes are synonymous with people quitting. 

Classes are a good place to socialize your dog.

False It sounds good though. Dogs learn to socialize with each other when they are six to eight weeks old in the litter, the Critical Period. If your dog obviously hates other dogs, or is very fearful of them, the aggression or fear very often gets much worse from well-meaning attempts by dog trainers to break this behavior in classes.

If you were scared of heights, would hanging you off the top of a tall building make you less or more fearful of falling? If you need to teach your dog good manners in public, remember the 3 phases of dog training--learning, correction, then distraction proofing. Classes have it backwards making it much much harder to train and socialize your dog.

Classes are good to teach your dog to behave around distractions.

False What classes have kids on razor scooters or families having picnics, real life distractions? If you want your dog to behave around kids on razor scooters, for example, you need to train your dog first, then introduce distractions.

Dog Obedience and Puppy Classes Have It Dead Wrong

  Classes are NOT appropriate for...

Lady with dogsPeople who are easily embarrassed or have anxiety, professionals, business people, busy people, people on tight schedules, children, teenagers, the elderly, those who are frail or have disabilities, or IF YOU NEED RESULTS "NOW!"

For behavior problems, group dog trainers are totally ineffective and often make problems worse.

Dogs often get stressed-out in training classes and become withdrawn, depressed or aggressive.

If you have a small dog or a puppy, there is a good chance it will get attacked by a larger dog. People in classes often can't control their dogs, which often slip out of their collars and attack other dogs in class.

Don't take our word for it, go watch a class and see dogs lunging and snapping at each other!

  Group dog training classes have it backwards

Classes make dogs resistant to obedience by putting distraction first. The three phases of dog training are: #1 Learning, #2 Correction, AND THEN #3 Distraction. Classes often stress-out dogs and makeDog them fearful or neurotic causing a host of undesirable behaviors at home such as self-mutilation and dominance.

DOG OWNERS DO GET SPECIAL ATTENTION IN CLASSES

  • The trainer may ask you to leave.
  • Most people feel humiliated and embarrassed in classes and quit
  • All the other people in class may stare at you like you are mean or clueless.
  • You may be ignored and treated unfairly.

Classes are ineffective for solving serious problems in the home.

A dog trainer cannot solve problems in the home when she has never been there. People's perspective, or what they say, is often the exact opposite of what a trainer sees at the home. People do not connect certain things to problems. Trainers always need to to see what is going on at the home for themselves to end troubles.

  What You Want to Look Out For

WHEN THEY SAY HOW LONG IT TAKES - It does not take a six weeks course to learn "sit", "down", "stay", "heel" and "come" on a leash. We teach all this and much more in one to three lessons, and teach off-leash training in 4 or 5 lessons!
