The In-Home Daily Training program is a personalized and intensive approach to dog training, conducted at the client’s residence. Here’s an elaboration of the program:
- Duration and Frequency: The program runs from Monday to Saturday, with each session lasting for approximately one hour. The total duration of the program varies between 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the specific training needs of the dog. This flexibility allows for a customized training plan tailored to each dog’s learning pace and the goals of the owner.
- Training Curriculum: The core focus of the training includes essential commands such as sit, down, stay, heel, and place. These commands are fundamental for basic obedience and help in establishing a well-behaved and disciplined dog. The training is comprehensive and aims to ensure that the dog understands and consistently responds to these commands.
- One-on-One Training: The sessions are exclusively between the dog and the trainer. This one-on-one attention ensures that the dog receives undivided focus and guidance, which can be particularly beneficial for addressing specific behavioral issues or for dogs that may be easily distracted or overwhelmed in group settings.
- Owner Involvement: While the initial sessions are conducted solely with the dog and trainer, the owner’s participation is integral towards the end of the program. In the last three classes, the owner is involved to observe and learn from the progress made by their dog. This phase is crucial as it transitions the command and control from the trainer to the owner.
- Educating the Owner: The final sessions are not only for showcasing the dog’s progress but also for educating the owner on effective handling and command techniques. This training ensures that the owner is equipped to continue reinforcing the learned behaviors and maintain consistency in the dog’s obedience and discipline.
- Benefits: Conducting the training in the dog’s home environment can be less stressful for the dog and more convenient for the owner. It allows the trainer to work on specific issues in the setting where they most often occur and tailor the training to the dog’s everyday environment.
- Continued Success: For lasting results, owners are encouraged to consistently apply the training techniques taught by the professional. Consistent reinforcement and practice are key to ensuring the dog’s continued obedience and good behavior.
This In-Home Daily Training program is particularly suited for owners who prefer a more personalized and direct approach to their dog’s training, within the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
