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 evaluated during the first session, and a recommended ongoing training plan will be designed for you and 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, centered dog using force-free methods. The training is not complete by 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 will help with minor behavior issues (before they become excessive), such as jumping, play biting, barking, and leash pulling. Serious behavior issues, including 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."

Dale Buchanan, Dog Trainer in Huntsville, AL is a puppy training expert with the following credentials:
Mr. Dale is an amazing dog trainer! He worked with our 9 week old Bernedoodle, Maverick for 6 weeks and he is now such a well behaved puppy. He taught potty training, sit, down, stay, leash training, socialization and so much more. We received two books he has written and also listened to a couple of his podcasts. We feel well equipped to continue training Maverick. I would highly recommend connecting with Top Gun Dog Training as soon as you get your puppy!
