Effectively changing a dogs behaviour does not happen overnight. If your dog is disobedient it is most likely due pre-existing habits and a mindset that has been encouraged over time - most likely, unknowingly. If you're serious about changing your dogs lifestyle for the better, you're in the right spot.
Building The Mindset & Knowledge Of Your Dog
Understanding Obedience Dog Training
It's important to understand that every dog is different and will require a slightly different approach. If he/she has been allowed to practice bad behaviour for a significant amount of time, you cannot expect a change to occur overnight. You, as the owner must be ready to take responsibility for your dog and its learning process.
When To Start Obedience Training
Right Now! If you haven't already been teaching your dog obedience and working towards a calm and stable state of mind, you need to start right away. Every day that passes will ingrain your dogs attitude and make it harder to adjust behaviour in the future.
What Can My Dog Learn
As stated above, every dog is different. Although, with the right amount of will power, dedication and time, a lot can be achieved. Through our programs the below commands can be expected coupled with establishing proper behaviour.
Not to jump up
To refrain from nipping and gnawing
Barking to demand food, toys, attention, etc.
Pawing at furniture, doors, etc.
Mouthing in a playful manner as this may lead to serious consequences in the future
Commands & Activities
Stay in place
Loose leash walking
Thresholds (waiting at doorways)

I would like to send a Big thank you to Jason and Megan. They helped shape Picco and Stripe into dogs that people want to be around.

Jason is a God !! We truly could not be happier about training with him , our 2.5 year old Shepard has shown major improvement since starting with him only 2 weeks ago. We cannot thank Jason enough for showing us how to understand our pup and all around have a better and stronger relationship with him. We look forward to continuing training with Jason!
