Our Dog Behavior Training Philosophy
There are so many dog training philosophies out there, all claiming to have the fix-all solution for dog behavior issues, all creating the “ideal dog,” and all seemingly contradictory to each other. One gives treats, while one insists treats don’t give dogs the right motivation. One propounds the theory that only positive reinforcement should be used, while others believe that too much praise is counterproductive. While each method and each theory can train a dog to a certain extent, very few philosophies have been proven to provide training that will withstand changes in circumstances, environment, and conditions.
That’s where we’re different.
Our Cincinnati obedience training for dogs brings together several theories, understanding that each has their time and place in teaching a dog proper behavior. Because we gradually expose our dogs-in-training to increasingly hectic circumstances, varying our training to match, we are able to give dogs the understanding (and their trainers the tools) to be well-behaved in virtually any situation or place.
Your Professional Dog Trainer
All of our dog trainers at The Dog Wizard come to you with the knowledge, technique, and passion for what they do that enables them to understand the best and proven methods for training your dog. After your initial consultation with your personal dog trainer, they will sit down with you and discuss the best methods of training, the pros and cons of each, and which one we believe to be the best choice for your specific dog and your expectations.
It is important to remember that while you can train your dog yourself to obey simple commands, this will mean nothing if your dog can only perform the commands in your kitchen without anyone else around. The most essential element or properly training a dog is making sure that he or she will listen to you and obey commands, regardless of environment, distractions, or anxiety. Your dog should be able to “come” or “sit” or “stay,” regardless of whether you are at home, in a park, or in the middle of a circus.
In addition, while we can teach your dog almost anything, it ultimately comes down to your (and your family’s) relationship with your furry friend. With our dog behavior training, we not only teach your dog the skills it needs to be obedient and well-behaved, but we teach you, your spouse, your kids, and anyone else how to best use those skills so you can have a long, healthy, and happy relationship with your dog.
Why Our Dog Training Programs Are Successful
We have a formula that is tailored to each dog and each trainer, and has been proven to be successful for hundreds of dogs. We love what we do, and we understand how to do it best, which is why we so frequently exceed our clients’ expectations, training their dogs to do so much more than they ever thought was possible. With our dog training programs, you can finally have the opportunity to have a trustworthy, calm, obedient, and happier companion for the rest of your dog’s life.
While the right dog training can make your life so much easier, the most important part is that a well-behaved dog is freer to enjoy life. You can now take him to the park and on trips, as well as integrate him fully into your family life. Instead of being constantly punished or scolded for misbehaving, your dog is able to feel the full benefit of living a quality life, and you will never forget the bond that you will form with him or her in the process.
