THE DOGGIE DEN TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
At The Doggie Den we believe that dog training should be fun and positive for both the owner and the dog. Our philosophy is to offer a personalized, motivational approach for dogs AND their owners.
Our instructors are well versed in many techniques and methods. This allows us to assess each dog and use the approach that will work best for you and your dog.
We have a success rate second to none, as our basic belief is that the biggest obstacle to good dog behavior is communication and understanding. Our obedience classes are where you and your dog learn a common language.
Training your dog is the best thing you can do for yourself and him/her. A well-trained dog is welcome in many social situations such as family gatherings, vacations, kids' soccer games, and cookouts.
A trained dog is also more fun to live with!! Training establishes a bond of trust, understanding and harmony. It's not just about tricks and obedience exercises; it's about learning to communicate with your dog so you and your family can truly enjoy your pet.

If you are looking to address a specific problem or problems, we suggest a private lesson in your home. Our trainer will make an appointment to meet with you. She will ask about how you are living with your pup, and what problems you're having.
She'll observe your pup's behavior, then suggest specific changes you can make to address the problem behaviors. You and her will spend time practicing new tactics or ways of interacting with your pet.
