In Home Dog Training

At Colorado Top Dog we believe private in home dog training lessons is the most effective path to good obedience and handling skills. Our Premier Dog Trainer arrives at your home and teaches the skills needed to create a harmonious relationship with your dog. This provides a comfortable, distraction free environment for the pet to learn the obedience basics.  It also allows us to understand your dog management style and their current compulsive habits/problems.  Your homework for dog or puppy training is about 15 minutes a day.  Part of the training may include lessons in distracting environments.

Board and Train Pros and Cons

Colorado’s Premier Dog Training does not offer board and train or doggy daycare services.  We do, however, believe a good dog board and train design is focused on addressing behavior modification first, while simultaneously adding to your dog’s obedience skills.  Timeframe should be determined by the dog’s current age, behavioral state and your goals.  Any other guidance is likely an escape/avoidance method.  Not everyone is a dog trainer.  Puppy training should consist of proper management skills, playing fetch with your dog as well as doing foundation dog training obedience.  A proper positive reinforcement dog training method would take a minimum of four weeks for the dog to have any semblance of competency.  That would be a dog trainer focused on just a few dogs and the results would require much further development to achieve the majority of dog owners’ goals.  There are many different dog training solutions on the market today.  Let Colorado Top Dog guide you in the winning direction, with unbiased advice.  Our experience with dogs is well over a decade.  We’ve seen the majority of dog training systems, methods and equipment.  Proper use of equipment is imperative to a successful solution and should always include the owner reaching a competent level.  Requiring the owner to be a part of the training.  No dog needs to go through a boot camp environment, they require more one on one interaction with a dog trainer.  During a dog boarding and training, the local dog trainers should provide a strong structure and provide your dog with the training it needs.  Most franchise dog training systems offer a one and done solution with minimal variability in design.  After a board & train is complete, the owner should be required to spend multiple sessions with the trainer. During this time, the trainer should teach the owner all about their newly trained companion.  In the end, your dog training/handling skills will be the only resource available when you take your dog home.  More time with a dog trainer solidifies your understanding of how to handle the dog in different scenarios, locations and environments.
