Long beach POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT DOG TRAINING
"Training is not a luxury but a key component to good animal care. Everyone who has a pet should understand that basic fact. Training is a way to enhance the quality of life for our pets. It is far more than teaching a dog to do a cute trick. Training is about teaching a dog (or any animal) how to live in our world safely."
~ Ken Ramirez
About Pet Waggin' Training
Training enhances the lives of dogs both young and old, so whether you want to start your puppy off on the right paw or teach an old dog new tricks, training will improve their quality of life, keep them mentally stimulated and help keep them physically safe.
What should you expect when using Pet Waggin’ training? Our main goal is for every party involved to be learning and having fun! We believe it is important to build a fun, loving, and trusting relationship between dogs and their owners. We want you and your dog to love training together, so we will not be using any painful or aversive training techniques.
We use positive reinforcement training techniques to help motivate your dog and make them excited about learning. Science has shown that when you reinforce behaviors in any creature, the behaviors will happen more often. The easiest way to positively reinforce behavior is by using treats or other rewards! Dogs love food and making them work for it is a fun and easy way to help them learn. Pet Waggin’ training will never tell you to teach your dog by giving harsh physical or verbal corrections, or by using aversive tools that cause unnecessary pain or discomfort.
What our clients are saying...
"We have just completed three training lessons with Carolyn for our two year old Brittany spaniel. His name is Walter and he is truly rambunctious! Our first lesson began with us identifying problems we were having with Walter.
We needed help walking him. He pulled hard and couldn’t control himself around other dogs and people. The other behavior issue was how wild and destructive he could be in our house. Carolyn gave us tools to keep his attention on us when we walk him. It’s so much easier and enjoyable to walk him now.
She taught us a couple of techniques to use in the house to calm him down and to get along with our other dog.
Every lesson was a plus for us. Carolyn is an excellent teacher. She demonstrated the skill we were working on. Then she coached us through our session. She adapted techniques to meet our needs and abilities.
Did we have fun with this training? You bet we did. Walter still does his antics. Now we have a variety of ways to deal with them!"
