Where "bad dogs" don't exist..
Sponsored by SayLess Dog Training
In rescue, much of our inquiries needing placement for dogs is often times due to a behavioral concern or an ongoing issue that finally escalated. Dogs are not born understanding our language & how the world works; If we don't show them the way, this creates a world of untranslatable frustration for dogs & their people. With a strong background & understanding of canine behavior, we feel that adopting out dogs with unaddressed behavioral challenges can be a recipe for disaster. Adopting a new friend should be an exciting thing & the last thing we ever want is to potentially create a difficult situation for anyone to have to manage. We strive to offer lifelong happiness with you & your new friend & giving our dogs & adopters the tools needed to succeed, helps us continue to do just that! We don't always know their background & we cannot guarantee the perfect dog, but with a combined effort, we will always offer support & solutions, supporting realistic expectations & overall good dog behavior.
We know that the times we're in make it more challenging to work with a trainer directly, so we've decided to offer something different through SayLess Dog Training to best accommodate & cater to each family's specific needs, while adhering to COVID-19 restrictions & social distancing.
Any trainer can show you how it's done, however we prefer a different approach to help YOU connect with your dog through positive training techniques & saving you money, at the same time!
Each client will require a brief questionnaire & an initial consultation for a behavioral evaluation. Together, we will formulate realistic training goals & an appropriate training plan to follow. (Multiple dog households can be combined into one consultation)
Some of the topics that can be covered are, but not limited to are:
