Playdog founder and head trainer Steve Sackman has been training dogs and people to train and care for dogs for over 20 years. His love and care for your dog is obvious as he teaches basic techniques the dog will need to be safe on and off leash. While treats are occasionally used during training, praise is the primary reinforcement tool of choice

Like people, dogs have different personalities. While a breed may share common traits, each pack member can have different personality traits. Learning what holds or gains the dog’s interest is a great help when it comes to training. Consistency in training and reinforcement is key to what helps the dog retain.

Training includes exercise. You must commit your dog gets its proper exercise everyday rain or shine. Lack of proper daily exercise will cause even the best trained dog to misbehave.

Some problems occur only at home where an at home session and observation is the best way to address them. It’s always helpful to observe and train to reinforce at home in familiar surroundings. However it is equally important to expose the dog to other surroundings allowing it to experience other noises, smells and other stimuli that may take its attention.

Sit, down, stay, no, come and heal are just the start.

The bond formed with your dog by you, the family and the trainer is equally important. You will be amazed at what the dog can do with just a look or gesture using no words at all.
