What is private dog training?
Private dog training goes beyond teaching your dog basic commands. It can also give you the chance to have Denver’s top dog trainer, Dion Studinski, work one-on-one with you and your pet on his or her specific behavior issues.
Dion can pinpoint behaviors that might become more of a problem in the future -- issues that might get in the way of your dog enjoying healthy, happy interactions with family members, other people and other pets. Private training can help nip aggressive or problematic behavior in the bud, so your dog can become better behaved, happier, safer to take out in public, and easier to live with.
Private dog training lessons are ideal for dogs of all ages. They provide a one-on-one learning environment that provides a jump start on puppy training or better prepares adult dogs to interact with others properly.
Why might private training be a better fit than group training?
One size does NOT fit all. Every dog, every home, every owner is unique, with their own personalities, demands, and expectations. With private dog training, lessons are tailored to fit you and your dog’s specific needs. We can pace the lessons as slow or as fast as needed, and provide undivided attention to you both. That helps because you’ll never have to feel “left behind” or frustrated, like you might in a group class that’s moving too fast. If you've ever felt like you’re wasting time in a class that moves too slowly you'll be happy with private training and a pace that suits you and your dog.
Plenty of dogs struggle to remain calm and focused around other dogs, and they may not be ready for a group training session. A private dog trainer like Dion can minimize the distractions for dogs that can’t focus in high-stimulation environments or with other dogs around.
Whatever your needs, we work with dogs and their people on an individual basis to ensure that our students are as receptive to the lessons as possible and are facing new obstacles at just the right pace.
What can you learn during private lessons?
In our private training sessions, we teach the same skills as we do in our group settings, but we teach them at just the right pace for you and your dog. That includes (but is not limited to):
- All the basic commands
- On-leash and off-leash commands
- Obedience training
- Behavior problem solving
- Aggressive dog rehabilitation if needed
Most people seek out private dog trainers in order to build a solid foundation of basic training for their dogs. This basic training preps them for smooth, successful interactions with others. Private lessons also provide an opportunity to bond more closely with your dog, and that establishment of trust goes a long way in preparing for more advanced lessons later on.
Who should get private dog training?
Anyone who’s interested in building a bond of trust and dependability with their dog can benefit from working with a private trainer. We all love our dogs and want to give them the best of everything. Of all the best things you can give your dog however, is a series of private training sessions. These sessions teach your dog the "rules" or boundaries of your pack (family), and give them the security they seek in fitting into their place in the pack. Training can empower both owners and their dogs to tackle future challenges with security and confidence because they know how to respond rather than to simply react.
Private dog training lessons can provide the distraction-free, highly focused environment needed to get the most out of each training exercise. Contact us today to learn more or to get started.
