What is Whole Dog Training?
Our training goes beyond basic obedience commands and correction of unwanted behaviors. We believe that to truly solve behavioral and emotional issues, we must address the whole dog.
Whole dog training creates balance in all areas of your dog’s life, including diet, exercise, sleep habits, and mental stimulation. Behavioral problems are symptoms of underlying issues that can be addressed by striking a balance in all areas of your dog’s life.
The key to successful dog ownership is a healthy relationship with your dog. Dogs need clear direction and guidance to feel at ease in the world and to understand their place in your family. Our training programs teach you how to provide leadership that garners your dog’s respect and willingness to follow.
Understanding and satisfying a dog’s natural drives is essential for a well-balanced dog and a healthy relationship. Our training programs place a strong emphasis on pack drive and prey drive to fulfill your dog’s instincts in a safe and structured manner.
Keeping your dog’s mind active is critical for good health and behavior. We teach you how to create a daily routine and give clear direction and “jobs” for your dog to do. Regular activities like “pack walks” and play are indispensable for a satisfied and fulfilled dog.
At Baker Dog Training, we believe that a well-trained dog is a happy, healthy dog. Let us help you create balance and fulfillment in your dog’s life.
