Private Training OPTIONS
This option is designed predominately for repairing relationships and changing unwanted behaviors by dogs and humans as well. Remember, we must behave in order for our dogs to behave. It is in-depth and tailored to address the specific issues and needs of each individual situation.
An assessment will be performed in order to gain information about your dog’s basic temperament, personality and typical behavior. We will discuss the structure of your dog’s life, including, feeding protocol, unwanted behaviors and triggers, amount of exercise and human interaction your dog receives on a day-to-day basis. You will be provided the tools and skills to continue teaching your dog alternative behaviors to replace unwanted ones. We will also discuss your level of commitment, as well as your time availability for practice that is imperative to your dog’s success. Often times, there are issues created by incorrect and/or improper input from a dog’s human(s). If any such issues are observed, you will be advised as to proper alternatives that will assist in the process of perfecting your relationship with your dog.
Explanations, based on our observations and experience, will be provided regarding the likely reason or reasons your dog is displaying the unwanted behaviors. The purpose of this is to help you communicate with your dog in such a way that your expectations are clear. See Spot Sit believes that we must learn to speak a little dog in order to help dogs adhere to our rules and expectations.
It is common to attempt to learn basic language of a foreign guest in our homes and the same respect and courtesy should be afforded to animals we bring into our human world. They cannot learn to successfully navigate this foreign world’s rules and boundaries if they do not have clear instructions and information. I believe that if we communicate our expectations to our dogs in a manner they understand, they will happily comply.
