The Reality Of Dog Training

By Jason Wright

September 4, 2020

What You Need To Know

Once your dog goes home it is crucial that you continue to follow the training program as closely as possible. Dog training is a continuous process that takes time and dedication. If you do not have the time or aren’t willing to put in the effort especially if your dog has issues such as aggression and high anxiety then you cannot expect your dog to be successful.

If your dog has been able to rehearse bad behaviour for months or even in many cases years, you can’t expect the dog to magically get better within a couple of weeks. Yes, the behaviour can be drastically improved but it depends on how serious and intense the issue is and where it stems from.

We put a ton of time and effort into each dog that comes into our program, the last thing we want to see is the lack of effort from the owner and the regression of the dog once he/she is back home.

If time and effort are an issue, please think about rehoming to a family who is 100% dedicated and willing to do what it takes to improve the dogs life and state of mind. Don’t be selfish !!!

There should be NO excuse!
