Freedom Dog Program
Freedom Dog Training Academy
Our Freedom Dog Training Academy is an interactive, educational and fun way to train your dog! Our Freedom Dog Program is a 16 week course that will take you from start to finish with support to help you and your dog be successful together! You’ll also join out Freedom Dog Online Classroom on facebook. Watch our weekly lessons, post your homework assignments for feedback, ask questions about course content and share successes!
Our Freedom Dog program is for ALL dogs.
We highly recommend this program for owners who:
a) have a new puppy and want to take the ultimate course to raise a well behaved, well mannered and happy dog!
a) want to do more obedience with their dog (sit, down, mat [with implied stay] and come) at home as well as out and about. This course will prepare your dog for advancing to ecollar off leash obedience and recall. Get ready for summer hikes in the woods or on the beach with a dog that listens!
b) have dogs with behavioral issues such as reactivity, human or dog aggression and intense anxiety. These are dogs who are barking, lungeing, growling, snapping at other people, children or dogs. Dogs who have bitten someone or attacked another dog. Or dogs who go ballistic in the house when alone or try to/successfully break out of crates when alone.
c) have dogs that are difficult to impossible to trim their nails (whether by the owner, the groomer or at the vet office). We have helped dogs who have previously had to be sedated to get their nails done at the vet office get trimmed awake at home by their owners.
d) have dogs that are difficult at the vet’s office. The dog is very anxious or scared, shakes, whines, drools or excessively pants. The dog is reactive, barking or vocalizing at other people or dogs in the office. Or perhaps the dog is aggressive, must be muzzled (or will bite the vet and staff), takes multiple people to handle and is very stressful on the dog, vet and staff for a basic visit for an examination, vaccinations or a heart work blood draw.
Our Freedom Dog Program will focus on and address:
*Building a positive and respectful relationship with your dog
*Physical, mental and confidence-building exercises
*Teaching your dog to have an optimistic state of mind instead of a pessimistic view of the world
*How to politely greet people (no more jumping on guests and embarrassing you!)
*A dog that doesn’t counter surf or steal things in the house and then play keep away
*Enjoy a dog that walks nicely on a leash (no more dragging you around the neighborhood!)
***Basic obedience (sit, down, mat) with an implied stay. An implied stay means your dog sits and stays automatically without you having to say the word stay until you release them from the sit.***
*How to relax and have a calmer demeanor – relaxed dogs are happier and make better decisions because they’re not going a mile a minute
*Teaching your dog to wait for permission to go out a door (no more running out of the crate, house or car doors!)
***Conditioned Relaxation: A physical, touch method of relaxing your dogs muscles which relaxes their mind.***
*Learning to correct your dog for behaviors you don’t want in a way that won’t shut them down and actually gets them more enthusiastic about what they should be doing
*Begin the foundation for a great recall with our very fun Paper Plate Recall game!
***Help your dog become comfortable for nail trims, brushing, baths, ear cleaning and other grooming activities.***
***How is your dog at the vet office? Have a dog that is comfortable and relaxed for vet exams, blood draws, ear cleanings and other veterinary procedures without having to get stressed out or trying to be aggressive toward veterinary staff.***
*A dog that can make better choices on their own so they need less micromanaging and are more fun to live with!
