K9-BootCamp offers professional private in-home dog training services in the Charlotte, NC area. Specializing in canine behavior problems, I have helped many dog owners gain a better understanding of their companion dog while developing a better bond with them. I train any breed, size or age of dogs. K9-BootCamp is recommended by local veterinarians.
K9-BootCamp believes that each dog and the environment he or she lives in is unique and therefore believes in creating a customized program of specific dog training services that is right for you and your dog. Each type of unacceptable behavior requires its own specific cures, and in most cases the cures will need to be tailored to fit the specific personality of the dog. Every breed of dog has its own unique personality characteristics, and every individual within that breed has his or her own unique personality. I will teach you how to train your dog with chances to apply what you are learning throughout the training process.
K9-BootCamp uses positive reinforcements only. I DO NOT use shock, prong or choke collars. Positive reinforcement means training with treats, toys, petting and praise as rewards. Rewards just may be the single most important motivator in dog training. Dog obedience training and behavior modification through the use of rewards and other positive reinforcements has long been recognized as the most effective method of reaching most dogs and getting the best possible results. Praise works wonders, not only with humans, but dogs as well.
*The least humane and most controversial use of the shock collar (e-collar) is a training device. The trainer can administer a shock to a dog at a distance through a remote control. There is a greater chance for abuse (delivery of shocks as punishment) or misuse (poor timing of shocks). Your dog may also associate the painful shock with people or other experiences, leading to fearful or aggressive behavior. Just say NO to shock collars.
Do you have behavior problems with your dog like Jumping, Chewing, Puppy Nipping, Housebreaking, Barking, Leash Pulling, Separation-Anxiety, Digging, Bolting, Aggressive Dog Behavior, Resource Guarding, Coprophagia (stool eating), Counter Surfing, Not Coming when Called or others? Do you want your dog to be a Canine Good Citizen or become a Certified Therapy Dog? Let K9-BootCamp help you.
I believe that it is important for owners to understand WHY their canine companions exhibit certain behaviors that become problems within our society. Once the owner understands the motivation behind the unwanted dog behavior I can help them establish trust and create a well balanced relationship with a good canine citizen.
