"If you would understand this secret, you must first understand the distinction between training an animal and educating one. Trained animals are relatively easy to turn out. All that is required is a book of instructions, a certain amount of bluff and bluster, something to use for threatening and punishing purposes, and of course the animal. Educating an animal, on the other hand, demands keen intelligence, integrity, imagination, and the gentle touch, mentally, vocally, and physically."
All in-home obedience lessons can include a picture of your dog, suitable for framing, wearing a Graduation cap, dated, with your dog's name & level of accomplishment
Positive methods make you a "benevolent" leader. Leadership dosn't require harsh methods.
Linda suggests- Use your smartphone to video the important points of your lesson. You will have the advantage of viewing your obedience lessons as you practice with your dog or puppy, a great way to stay on track.
"Linda's help training my dog, Biscuit, was invaluable. She is patient, answered all ny questions, and was very in tune with Biscuit, as well as my boyfriend and I. We all loved having her in our home. As a first time dog owner, I felt that I was way over my head with my large energetic dog. Linda helped me understand my rambuntious young dog with a gentle loving approach, which helped me in creating a bond with my dog. The once thought to be wild child dog, is now a playful, loving dog which I am very much in tune with. Everyone comment on the positive change in my dog from before she was trained to now" Denise, Brewster, NY
In home obedience lessons take place initially inside of your home to provide a "distraction-free" environment, and then proceed outside on your property and/or in your neighborhood, to proof and test your dog or puppies training.
In home dog training is custom-tailored for the needs of your dog and family. Children are encouraged to participate if you desire.
Dog friendly In home lessons finish with your being able to practice the techniques yourself, with instructions and guidance from Linda. She will provide you with printed handouts to keep as reminders, on a variety of subjects to suit your needs. Handouts given range from Aggression, Housetraining, How to solve Common Problems, How to Handle Behavior Problems, Clicker Training & more.
Obedience Lessons with Linda entitle you to unlimited phone, text & email support.
"You're the best Linda. Thank you so much for your knowledge, your genuine concern and commitment, and your very special willingness and ability to think outside the box when all else failed with my very problematic puppy. I will be forever grateful." Deb, Westchester, NY
