Have a dog that's a joy to live with!
Jump Start Puppy!
**Wholistic Hound is offering limited in-person classes and private lessons!**
Wholistic Hound Academy’s training programs and services help make life with your puppy or dog easier and more fun by bringing out the best in your dog! With guidance from our knowledgeable, professional, and certified instructors, you’ll learn how to respond to your dog's good and bad behaviors so that only the behaviors that you want are the ones that get reinforced. Instead of focusing on correcting bad behaviors, we teach your dog how to make the right behavior choices. Before you know it, you’ll have a calmer, more relaxed, well-mannered canine companion who’s a real pleasure to be around!
Sharing your life with a dog should be fun and rewarding. But certain unwanted behaviors – pulling you down the street, barking at people or other dogs as they pass by, jumping on visitors, or not coming when called – can take all the joy out of it. Unfortunately, these behaviors are very normal dog behaviors and are easily self-reinforced and sometimes inadvertently reinforced because these behaviors get our attention.
This is no time to not train your new puppy. Socialization is about helping your puppy form positive associations with new sights, sounds, smells, and experiences. We take you through the stages of your puppy’s development and offer creative solutions to safely socializing your puppy during this critical period in their lives, even during a pandemic. Whether it is in-person or live online, let us help you raise a confident and happy dog and one that’s a joy to live with! Check out our upcoming classes!
