In this video the dog’s owner is just learning to handle his newly trained dog
Mike Sent his dog Marcus to me for training. Marcus is a young German Shepherd and Mike enriolled him in the Board and Train program.Many people worry that if their dog is trained by someone else that they will not learn what they need to know in order to maintain the training ro that the dog will nto listen to them.While this can be true - it isnt the case here - and not with the way I do things.
I see my job here as two halves:1) Train the dog.2)Educate theo wner so that the human end of the equation understands how to maintain the training the dog has received.
Marcus is trained both on and of leash. This means that Mike can trust his dog to obey him and to be responsive with or without a leash on and that means more freedom for Marcus and more peace of mind for Mike.
Notice how Marcus keeps his eyes and focus on Mike the entire time they are working. He is present and happy to work with his person. True dog training builds teamwork and a good relationship.
The program is 3 weeks from start to stop and once complete we go through the transfer process. There is also a follow up lesson to be used whenever Mike would like to review things with me and there is unlimited lifetime support. The system is built for Mike and Marcus to be successful.
Every week I meet with new clients and their dogs, helping them train and in many cases retrain their pets to fit into their lives.I can be any and every where inand around Montreal in a day and by the end of the week if I look back on my schedule - I sometimes wonder how I manage to get it all done.
Frankioe can get caught up playing too rough with other dogs & his owners wanted to be able to control that. You can see when Nick tells him “that’s enough” as he is latching onto the big black dog - he stops instantly.This video was filmed less than 2 weeks after he started training with Nick. In fact Nick had Frankie off leash with his owner from Day 2 - and in her words she could not believe it!Watch frankie work off leash around all the other dogs - tail wagging - ready to play - but very focused and enjoying his work!
