Dream Dog Advanced Dog Training

If you aspire to have a relationship with your dog that makes your friends and neighbors jealous, this advanced dog training program is for you!

In our Dream Dog training program we teach your dog basic commands and how to follow them in distracting environments, create a strong focus towards the owner in every day situations, and assist you in eliminating unwanted behavior such as jumping, barking, leash pulling, etc.. Our Dream Dog advanced dog training program is an essential first step to CGC Certification, Therapy Dog Training, and many dog sports.


Body Language Basics

Learn to understand what your dog is telling you.  Often times we ignore or misinterpret what our dogs are telling us, which can damage the relationship we have with them.


Engagement Training

Does your dog have a mind of its own?  If you’ve ever said your dog has:

  • Selective Hearing
  • A Stubborn Streak
  • An Over Excited Personality
  • An Easily Distracted Temperament

this will help you regain control!  After all, if your dog isn’t listening to you, all the training commands in the world won’t help.  This segment of our course is designed to teach even the most distracted, over-stimulated dogs to pay attention to their owners.  We believe obedience training can be LIFE SAVING in those moments when your dog is most distracted, but obedience only works if the dog has focus.


Basic Dog Training

The following commands are taught using both voice and hand signals:

  • Sit
  • Come
  • Leave It, Drop It
  • Down
  • Stand
  • Watch
  • Loose Leash Walking
  • Focused Heel


Advanced Dog Training: Training With Distractions

Have you ever noticed that your dog will follow directions perfectly in your home but around other people or dogs all of its training falls to the wayside? In order for your dog to reliably follow commands it needs to rehearse them in many different places with many different types of distractions. We will help you practice your dog’s learned commands with varying levels of distraction until they are reliable in every situation.


Behavior Modification

We will help you address your dog’s unwanted behaviors. This is customizable to your specific needs but can include such behaviors as:

  • Play biting
  • Excessive barking/whining
  • Jumping
  • Counter surfing
  • Digging
  • Chewing


Day Training

Twice a week your dog trainer will come for practice sessions with your dog. We do the hard work for you in order to teach your dog the skills needed to work successfully with you. This method typically gives you results in half the time because you have a professional trainer laying the ground work with your dog.
