In our experience here at Sublime K9 Training & Boarding, many dog owners attempt to train their dogs at home, but not everyone is equipped to see the process through. If you want to make sure your dog is properly trained, we encourage you to hire a professional dog trainer like those on our team.
In this article, we’ll go over a few reasons why you should leave dog training to the experts.
- Commands and Obedience – One reason to hire a professional dog trainer is because it’s a great way to make sure your dog learns all the basic commands and will obey them. By the time your dog is finished with our program, they will know how to sit, shake, lie down, roll over, and more, and they will readily obey the commands when you give them.
- Positive Reinforcement – Another reason to hire a professional dog trainer like those on our team is because we use positive reinforcement. In other words, we get the dogs to associate obedience and good behavior with rewards and praise, rather than associating misbehavior with punishment (which rarely works anyway). We’ll also show you how to continue this positive reinforcement to help your dog maintain good habits.
- Troubleshooting – A third reason to hire a professional dog trainer rather than trying to go it alone is because experienced trainers like ours can identify problems your dog may be experiencing, and we can offer suggestions on how to fix them. We know all about dog behavior, so we can determine why your dog is exhibiting certain behaviors and what you can do about the issue.
