Why Do We Train the Owners Too?
While working with another dog trainer we discussed how every dog we encounter is different. Not only does each have a different personality or temperament; each also comes from a different home and lives with a different owner. All of these factors, temperament, home environment, and owner, make each dog unique. It’s important to have a good understanding of each in order to properly train a dog. This is why Hampton Roads Dog Training’s in-home training is so effective. In-home training allows your trainer to see the full picture of your dog’s situation by allowing them to observe your living situation, meet you, and your dog all at once. Your trainer is then able to create a unique training plan of action with goals that fit your needs.
There are often things in the home that need to be adjusted, removed, or added in order to better facilitate your dog’s training. Just like adjustments may need to be made to your home, adjustments will need to be made in you as well. In fact, we often say that dog training is really people training. This is inevitably true because when we leave your home after a lesson, only you will be able to maintain consistency with your dog and keep them on their path of good behavior. We want you to take of the reigns and become the trainer yourself. That’s our ultimate goal. This is the reason why our Virginia Beach dog trainer will be the last trainer you’ll ever need.
Our commitment-based training is truly valuable because we don’t teach a set number of lessons. Our work with you isn’t done until all of the goals we set are achieved. We’ll be there for you through meetings for lessons and answering all of the questions you have along the way.
Hampton Roads Dog Training will teach you everything you need to know to maintain a lifetime of healthy and happy companionship with your dog. There’s nothing more rewarding for us as seeing an owner who’s in charge and confident in leading their dog though whatever situation arises. Let us show you the way!
