- Training Academy
Training is like daycare -drop off in the morning, pick up in the evening. Then come back on the weekend for a private session where we will align on the progress of your program and next steps. To make your life easier, Training Starter Kits are available to purchase before courses beginning.
Board & Train is a style of dog training that fully immerses dogs into a new environment, where dogs receive daily training, structured exercise, and socialization with other dogs and achieve results in a short period of time. Having done thousands of board and trains over the years, we continue to see how beneficial it is for dogs to leave home for a while to live with a pack of dogs and have daily training. Your dog will be challenged daily around distractions – like other dogs, public places, and new people – which is a huge part of this program's "real-world success." Your dog will develop good behaviors at a rapid pace through proper routine, positive interaction with the trainer, and exposure to other well-trained dogs.
Unlike a classroom setting/group class, private in-home training allows the trainer to stay highly focused on you and your dog's particular needs and issues. Personal in-home training is simply the best way to train your dog because it occurs where the problems arise IN YOUR HOME.
Our trainer will come to your home, at your convenience, and "tutor" both you and your dog. Parents often hire a tutor to help them. The one-on-one attention generally works wonders for the student's grades and their confidence. The same is true for your dog. Unlike a classroom setting/group class, private in-home training allows the trainer to stay highly focused on you and your dog's particular needs and issues. Private in-home training is simply the best way to train your dog because it occurs where the problems actually occur… IN YOUR HOME. Our trainer will come to your home, at your convenience, and "tutor" both you and your dog.
Doves offers group obedience classes for just about everyone who has a dog. All breeds and ages are welcome provided your dog has no behavior problems like fear or aggression (please see Behavior Consultation). This gives you the unique opportunity to learn and practice in a positive environment so that both you and your dog can grow and learn together. A series of classes will get you where you want to go. A combination of private sessions together with group classes is ideal.
While you may already have a terrific dog, it is still possible for there to be one or two specific bad habits that you would love to get rid of. Some of these problems may include: Separation anxiety Soiling the house Excessive barking Dog aggression Snapping and nipping Chewing Destructive behavior Jumping up Running away Car sickness Breed specific problems Other annoyances Our behavior modification training makes finding solutions to your dog's problems a priority and emphasizes the nurturing of a proper relationship between dog and owner. Clients often find that behavior problems quickly disappear when training begins.
Dog aggression is one of the most complex behaviors with genetic, environmental, and human influences.
At Dove's Dog Academy, aggressive dog rehabilitation is possible! We work with dogs that other trainers consider untrainable. No matter the breed or the type and severity of your dog's unwanted behaviors, we are here to help! If your dog is leash reactive, dog or human aggressive, or struggles with more than a couple of small behavior issues, you and your dog will achieve the most success through a board & train for aggressive dogs. Board & train takes your dog out of their routine, familiar and habitual processes and hits the "reset" button. Time and consistency, along with the right tools and guidance, are the keys to achieving big time change in a shorter period of time. Our aggressive dog training is not a special training service, it is woven into all our training programs.
