Dog Training Solutions

There are many dog training solutions on the market today. Let Colorado Top Dog guide you in the winning direction. We offer professional advice combined with extensive experience in training dogs. Our experience is well over a decade and quite diverse. We’ve seen the majority of breeds, dog training equipment, dog training methods, and dog training systems.

A true balanced dog trainer would agree that positive reinforcement makes the most sense, especially when starting your puppy’s imprinting or your dog’s training foundation. For a complete canine training solution, adding equipment makes sense. Therefore, humane and proper use of equipment is imperative to a successful result. Training should include the owner reaching a competent level with both equipment and positive obedience training. Each owner should be required to participate in a significant amount of dog training. Therefore, choose your dog trainer wisely. Their work reflects their background, experience, and knowledge. Ask to see the trainer’s dog perform and have them demonstrate their dog’s skills. Also, be sure the animal is happy as well as healthy. For example, if the dog’s demeanor appears sullen, their head is down and/or the dog seems disinterested, move to the next dog trainer.

In Home Dog Training

Colorado Top Dog offers private in-home dog training lessons for obedience in the Denver area and these are the best choice for a reliable solution. Lessons are great for teaching handling, management, and play skills. Our Premier Dog Trainer arrives at your home and teaches the skills needed to create a harmonious and thriving relationship with your dog. This provides a comfortable and distraction-free environment for the pet. It also allows us to understand your dog management style. Furthermore, we examine your dog’s current compulsive habits and problems. Your homework for dog or puppy training is 15 minutes a day. We will also suggest changes to your environment, handling, and management. The training is easy and may include lessons in distracting environments. In addition, we encourage clients to exercise their pet.

Pros and Cons of a Board and Train

Colorado Top Dog does not offer a board and train, nor do we offer dog daycare or dog day play services. No dog needs to attend a dog boot camp or dog training academy. Most dog training franchises offer non-flexible solutions with minimal variability in design. Dogs require more one on one interaction with their handler/owner, and not a board and train. If no other choice, a good dog board and train design is focused on addressing behavior modification first. In addition, the trainer should add to your dog’s obedience skills. The timeframe would be determined by the dog’s age, behavioral state, and your goals. Any other guidance or shorter timeframe is likely utilizing an escape/avoidance method. This leads to poor results. Remember, not everyone is a dog trainer. Upon completion, the owner should be required to spend multiple sessions with the trainer.

Our Philosophy

Dog training is building proper behaviors. Also, a relationship with your dog. Inevitably, you must become competent as a dog handler. Handling requires good management, obedience skills, and proper dog play. Implementing, learning and understanding proper methods of dog training ensures ultimate success. Colorado Top Dog makes your goals in training easy by teaching you this information. Remember, your dog handling/training skills will be the only resource available when you take your dog home or to the park. Consequently, more time with a dog trainer solidifies your understanding of how to handle the dog in different environments, locations, and scenarios. To achieve your training goals, contact us.
