Signs Your Dog Might Need Professional Dog Training

You and your family may unknowingly contribute to unwanted behavior in these types of situations:

  • Your new puppy jumps up on your lap. You say, “Stop that!” Unfortunately, your pet might not understand why jumping into your lap or a guest’s lap is undesirable.
  • Your puppy goes off-leash during a walk. You chase her. Because this activity seems like fun, she runs even faster. When she’s off the leash, you can’t protect her from moving vehicles or the possibility of a tragic accident. Behavioral training is also safety training for you and your pet.
  • Your puppy bites often. Like a human baby, your puppy’s bites may start out as “teething” behaviors. It feels good to her. Without personalized puppy training, your pet’s tendency to nip may outlast her teething stage.

If your puppy doesn’t seem to be outgrowing problematic behaviors, or if your adult dog is aggressive toward humans or other dogs, private dog training may offer the behavior modification your dog needs to build healthier relationships.

The Advantages of Private Dog Training

When looking at dog training services, you will have two main options available – private training sessions and group sessions. While there is plenty of room in the market for both of these options, going with private training performed by a professional dog trainer does offer some notable advantages that are lacking in the group setting. 

First, and most obviously, you and your dog receive undivided attention when you choose a private dog training service. With group training programs, even the best trainer will have a hard time engaging with every dog in the group – it’s a tough job. To make sure the needs of your dog are addressed specifically, opting for private obedience training is the way to go.  

Another important point here is the distraction that other dogs can create for your dog. When trying to learn a new skill or eliminate an unwanted behavior, it will help for your dog to be as focused as possible on the trainer. That’s going to be harder to achieve with a group arrangement, so progress might be slower to arrive. Even if you are able to pay less for group training sessions, you may need more sessions to reach the desired outcome. As a result, you could end up paying more, and taking more time, before your dog learns the necessary lessons. 

Why Ancillary K9 is a Leading Denver Dog Trainer

A quick search for Denver dog trainers will reveal no lack of options in the city and the surrounding area. With so many dog training businesses competing for your attention, how do you know which one to pick? If you are interested in private dog training, you should choose a business like Ancillary K9 that makes private dog training programs a priority. Our private sessions are not an afterthought – they are the core of our business, and we believe strongly in the power of offering private training for dogs and dog owners. 

We also have a strong commitment to the success of every dog – we don’t give up on dogs just because the training process is difficult. We’ll embrace that challenge and will use our knowledge and experience to work toward a positive outcome. If your dog has been written off by other trainers as a “problem” that they can’t fix, give us a call for the help you both deserve. 

Is Dog Training Right for Your Pet?

There are some situations where the need for dog training classes is obvious, such as when the dog can’t be trusted to go out in public without acting in an aggressive manner. With that said, virtually every dog can benefit from training sessions, even if the dog is generally well-behaved. There is a lot to learn from dog classes, and proper training can improve the quality of life for dog and owner alike. 

It’s worth noting that dogs of any age — whether young pups or adult dogs — can benefit from building good habits now even if they don’t have any naughty behaviors that are causing problems. There may be small things that the dog is doing now which could turn into behavioral issues later. If those habits are corrected during training, you’ll be able to avoid any trouble down the road. And of course, puppy training can help with everything from potty training to meeting basic obedience training goals.

Still not sure if you should schedule private lessons for your pet? Just reach out for a free consultation. We will be happy to answer your questions and explain the services that we offer. There is no obligation beyond the free consultation session, so you have nothing to lose by reaching out to learn more.

You’ve got plenty going on in life, and you might think that you’ll be able to correct these behavioral issues over time. Unfortunately, they are only likely to get worse, rather than better, without proper intervention.
