My Puppy Obedience Training Program consists of private lessons at your home in the Huntsville, AL area. All training will include some essential components, as listed below, plus additional training specifically for your dog.
Many dog trainers use shock collars (E-Collar, Remote Collar) to train your dog. I DO NOT! I use force-free positive reinforcement methods only.
I use reward-based training to teach your puppy what you want them to do and prevent them from rehearsing bad behaviors that are usually reinforced. This podcast episode explains my training methods.

No two dogs are trained the same. However, there are always some essential components for each training program. Each dog is thoroughly evaluated during the Initial Consultation, and a recommended training plan will be designed for them. The more time I spend with you and your puppy, the more they will learn.
My goal is to help make living with your dog easy and stress-free. In addition, I strive to help develop a balanced, grounded and centered dog using force-free methods. The training is not complete with the end of our sessions…that is just the beginning. Dog training is a lifelong process, implemented daily. Regular and consistent practice adds to a well-behaved and obedient dog.
IMPORTANT: Dog Obedience Training may help with minor behavior issues (before they become excessive) such as jumping, play biting, barking, and leash pulling. Serious behavior issues relating to anxiety, fear, and aggression will need Behavior Modification.
"Dale is an excellent dog/puppy trainer. We are first-time dog owners with three young children. Dale spent time with us during an initial consultation as I had concerns about having a new puppy, especially with young children. We hired Dale to train our puppy, and he is very responsive, punctual, and gave us all the tools we need to have a wonderful family pet."George G. - Boca Raton, FL
