Do you want your dog to walk on a loose leash? How about having your horse step right into the trailer? Can your cat do high fives? Trouble with
Most people typically think of only training dogs and horses. The reality is
any animal, of any species can be trained to do anything they are physically
capable of doing. We can train cats,
birds, dogs, horses, pigs (pot-bellied, guinea or your regular show pigs),
sheep, cattle and goats just to name a few.
Training can occur at any age. The
old adage, "You can't teach and old dog new tricks," is simply not
true. Animals can learn at any age. Training
is an important addition to environmental enrichment that helps to nurture our
pets as they age, as well as your bond with your pet.
We offer private training both in your home and at the clinic. In order to
set you and your pet up for success, the species and behaviors we are training will
determine the best location to train.
Why not? Whether training your pet for 4-H, everyday manners, prevention or
correction of behavioral problems, just
for fun or any other reason, training if done correctly improves the
relationship you have with your pet.
Our pets are experts at reading our body language and we assume they know
more than they do. We get frustrated when we feel they are being stubborn or
spiteful. In actuality they really just don't understand what it is that we
want at that point in time. Our job is
to help bridge this communication gap.
Ultimately our goal is for everyone to be successful. This means setting realistic
goals and training plans to fit into your lifestyle. The training is customized
to fit your unique needs. Please feel free to call or email if you have any
questions or concerns.
