dog training Richmond Hill

A well adjusted, well mannered pet is the result of commitment, time and a trusting relationship. Understanding why your dog does what he does and learning how to change behaviour without force will produce a dog that is eager to learn!

Dog Trainer Thornhill

Learning begins the moment your dog enters your home!

At SitStayLearn we use the most up to date science based positive reinforcement techniques to teach your new puppy, adolescent or adult dog.

Training will include the use of: food, toys, clicker, praise and any other “life reward” your dog sees as valuable. Training will never include: choke, prong, shock, shake cans, physical punishments or other tools which may frighten or intimidate.

Leadership is established by fostering a strong, trusting relationship between you and your 4 legged companion. Set up your new puppy to be successful or teach your adolescent good manners by focusing on what you do want him to do vs. always punishing for doing something you don’t like.  You will learn how to manage the environment, provide the opportunity for your pet to make the right choice and help him learn from consequences that make sense.

Force or punishment based dog training can create a dog fearful of making a mistake. The training possibilities are endless with positive reinforcement and a basic understanding of how dogs learn. 

I will help you teach your new puppy do the right thing, right from the start or help you guide your adolescent through those rocky teenage months! If you are unable to attend classes, private in home personal training is for you.

Positive reinforcement training techniques work for any dog, at any age.  Before you know it, your dog will be offering you all kinds of great behaviors because he will have learned that it's fun!

Janis' Training Tips

Create a legitimate digging spot in your backyard and teach your dog to dig only there. Decide whether you want to create a particular spot in the yard or use an old sandbox or other container which you can put dirt into.

Bury some delicacies (frozen Kong, favourite chews or toy) You can fill old paper towel holders with treats, seal the ends up and bury that too. Be creative! "Digging Dogs"

We're just back from our first cottage weekend with Carson and have so much good news to report for you!!!

1) The baby food training is going very well and he is starting to be much more comfortable with handling. 

2) Carson was very gentle with both of our nephews (we spent the time and trained both Carson and the boys how to behave around each other

3) His recalls are getting better  - he was never off leash but on a long line and that worked pretty well.  We'd like to really work on getting him off leash soon.

4) We are leash training now in the house and it too is going well!

All around he we had a terrific weekend! Carson is now exhausted after having played with two different dogs and around in the outdoors.
