Clients of PAWS Training Centers reap significant benefits that many reputable non-profit service dog organizations do not offer: 1. The most common is that PAWS Training Centers is able to train clients’ privately owned dogs, assuming those dogs prove to be good candidates.

Steps Work with your companion regularly. Every day at first and then several times a week to keep those lessons fresh and make the exercises second nature for both of you. Keep lessons and work session short enough that your pet (not to mention you yourself) doesn t get overwhelmed, frustrated, tired, or distracted. Usually 15-20 minutes is plenty. Don t move on to the next set of exercises until you and your pet have mastered the present ones. And [...]

Training dogs to stay

In an earlier article, I described how to teach your dog to wait for permission before going out an open door. It’s handy to teach a general “Stay” cue, too, so you can park your dog and keep him out of your hair while you check that leak under the sink, or sit on the floor to wrap large birthday presents. This week, how to teach your dog to stay, and how not to wind up backing away from your dog with your hand out and chanting “Stay, stay, stay [...]

Self help dog training

The correct term for training one s own service dog or one for an immediate member of your family is owner training because the dog is being trained by the owner instead of by a professional trainer or service dog program. Self-training is incorrect, because the dog is not training himself. Dogs start out as service dog candidates or puppy candidates while they are doing socialization and learning core obedience skills. They become service [...]

For successful training, practice the following basic training steps with your puppy every day. Keep training sessions short. Your puppy will see everything as a game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he s learning. Do each command for about five minutes and come back to it whenever you can. Practice the commands in lots of different places — in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, even out on walks — so that he gets used to responding [...]

Cesar Millan training

Let s be real. Cesar Millan has the magic touch. It almost seems wrong to call him just a dog behaviorist or pet trainer because the guy is seriously on another level — and his reputation as the Dog Whisperer is well-earned. Suffice it to say, if Millan is giving you tips on how to whip your dog s bad habits into shape, you d better take his advice to heart. We chatted with Cesar Millan to ask him some of our most pressing dog-training questions [...]

Determine where your dog will be spending most of his time. Because he will be under a lot of stress with the change of environment (from shelter or foster home to your house), he may forget any housebreaking (if any) he’s learned. Often a kitchen will work best for easy clean-up. Dog-proof the area where your pooch will spend most of his time during the first few months. This may mean taping loose electrical cords to baseboards; storing household [...]

Dogs, by nature, are pack animals with a well-defined social order. As you and your family become your dog s pack, your new dog will look to you – the leader of the pack – for guidance. Leadership can be established in a firm but friendly manner. Keep in mind that it is unrealistic to expect the dog to abide by the rules of the household without the leader teaching appropriate behavior! Much like people, every dog is different. Some are hyperactive [...]

A premier dog trainer in Northern Virginia and Washington DC, Jerri has always been guided by two passions – helping people through nursing, and loving animals from dogs to cats to horses. Dog ownership for her, however, has not always been easy. Jerri was bitten by one of her family s dogs at a young age. She never gave up on the companionship that dogs provide, but her love was put to the test when she and her husband took home an energetic eight [...]

The reputation of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. precedes him. That’s not a good thing, either. He has never had the fire of his famous father. He twice has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for post-fight positive tests, for marijuana and the diuretic Furosemide, respectively. Perhaps most importantly, he hates to train. It’s that latter knock that Chavez is going to try and erase in one fell swoop with his performance Saturday against [...]
