What to Expect from In-Home Dog Training Services

As a certified dog trainer, I will work with you to create a customized training program tailored to suit your dog’s needs.

Choosing the Right Dog Trainer for Your Needs

When selecting a professional dog trainer, look for qualities such as experience, patience, certifications, and a positive approach to training. Understanding different training methods and approaches along with the benefits of in-home training versus group classes will help you make the right choice to achieve the best outcomes. I use a training process that is proven to make sure your dog behaves.

Teaching Obedience and Basic Commands with Positive Reinforcement

Training your dog to be obedient by responding to basic commands consistently is made easy through positive reinforcement. Using treats and rewards during obedience training helps reinforce good behavior and teach your dog essential obedience skills.

Ensuring a Smooth Transition with Crate Training and Potty Training

Introduce crate training as a secure space for your canine and ensure effective house-training to keep your home clean and peaceful. Addressing barking and other behavior issues through proper training methods guarantees a well-mannered and happy furry companion.

Rollins Family Dog Training uses only positive reinforcement techniques based on the most up to date research in behavioral science.

This means we are committed to making the learning process not fun and affective for both you and your dog. We will never use punishment or fear based methods to meet your training goals.

Positive reinforcement training uses approached training by using rewards to promote good behavior. Contrary to the popular myth, this does not mean that we allow unwanted behavior to take place unchecked.

Through the use of crate training as well as play pins, baby gates, and many other safety techniques, we restrict the ability to perform bad behavior while training alternative good behaviors.

Many dogs (especially young dogs) will be a bit anxious for a short while when their owner leaves them home alone. Most dogs that start out upset about being left home alone will eventually be able to calm down and rest after a short period of time.

When a dog spends an hour or more crying, pacing, or being destructive in the house then they might be suffering from separation anxiety. If this is the case with your dog then specialized training to help develop new coping skills is the only way to help cure this condition.

Rollins Family Dog Training is specially certified to help with this specific form of anxiety disorder. Please schedule a free phone consultation today!

Training is to dogs what learning a new language is to humans; the younger they are, the faster and easier it is for them learn.

It’s always a good idea to start training your puppy as soon as they are brought home but it’s also never too late to learn the basics of good manners training.

Whether your dog is a puppy or an older adult, positive reinforcement training can always provide tremendous benefits and only strengthen your bond and communication with your dog.

Every dog is a unique individual with you their own special needs as far as training good behavior goes.

At Rollins Family Dog Training we tailor each training program around the particular needs of the dog and owner that we are currently working with.

This approach guarantees the fastest possible results for you and your four legged family member.

Dog barking, including demand barking, anxiety barking, and alert barking, are very common problems that we are fully qualified to address using positive techniques with dogs of all breeds and dogs of all sizes.

Training for good manners while on leash is one of the most common struggles that dog owners face in the busy city environment that most of us live in.

We have years of experience successfully training dogs to become happy well mannered companions while out and about in any environment.

Because we treat each dog and owner as individuals and work to create training programs to address your specific needs, there is no single price for training.

We want to make sure we are giving you the services that fit your needs specifically without adding on any extra unnecessary time or work.

For this reason, prices will vary as we discuss with you the best training package based on your goals and then decide together which of our training packages would best work for you.

Please schedule a free phone consultation for more information on the different plans available and the pricing for each.
