Correcting Unwanted Behaviors

This Module will be ever evolving based on what our clients need. Please send messages with exactly what you want to see in this module. Our training is meant to prevent most of these behaviors on this page BUT we understand that dogs will either come to a family later in life or learn new bad behaviors from other dogs or situations. This module will still be broken up by age as much as possible for ease of navigation. So here is where you ask, here is where you get what you are looking for from our AKC trainers that are here to help you with your dogs unwanted behaviors.

Common Problems: 8-12 weeks

  • Puppy Nipping
  • Puppy Jumping
  • Fear of New Experiences
  • Fear of the Car
  • Kennel Trouble
  • Potty Trouble

Common Problems: 12-20 weeks

  • Toddler Defiance

Module 3: 20 weeks – 8 months

Module 3 is all about getting to that Canine Good Citizen Test! There is plenty of reinforcement training that needs to be done so you should be on this module for a while. We need to teach our puppies how to go out in public, how to obey in public and not get distracted and how to always have their eyes on their handler. In Module 3 we have added some commands that we use for public work that are not necessarily required to pass your Canine Good Citizen but are very useful for you and your dog. So let’t dive in!
