"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn’t merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog."

~ Edward Hoagland (b. 1932) U.S. novelist & essayist

Your dog begins forming impressions about theDoggie du good's Melissa Cate and Team
world before you even bring them home, and once your dog arrives, there are endless benefits to starting out on the right foot, or should we
say paw.  Proper training is imperative to creating a safe and happy environment for you and your dogs.

We emphasize positive reinforcement. Teaching your dog obedience and or household manners can be so much simpler when they understand what is expected of them. Positive reinforcement in dog training and proper management are the most effective ways for behavioral issues to be prevented and solved. All it takes is an effective approach, patience and diligence, and your dog can achieve maximum behavioral health and well being. 

There are also endless benefits to continuing dog training education for you and your dog, competing in dog sports, pet therapy, and seminar programs are all wonderful ways to mentally and physically enrich your dog’s life at the same time improving the bond between you and your dog.  And, of course, it’s always fun to teach behaviors that are sure to impress and please friends and neighbors!
