Common Questions and Answers

Panel Panel
Q.   How old should my dog be before I consider training?

A.   Three (3) months of age. This is normally when a puppy receives permanent inoculations and can be safely exposed to new and different surroundings. However, the puppy actually starts learning at a much earlier age. This is a critical time at which point many "bad habits" may be averted. The longer "bad habits" go unchecked, the harder they are to reverse.

Q.   Can dog training be performed humanely?

A.   Yes, using the Kamer Praise Technique, developed exclusively for our school by Michael Kamer. A training curriculum will be prescribed for your dog after a free evaluation.

Q.   What methods of training do you offer?

A.   We offer boarding and training for those dogs whose owners are on busy schedules. We also offer individual lessons with owner participation at the school, as well as in the privacy of your home.
