Yes we do! We offer our puppy training services to most locations within an hour radius of Denver. If you are unsure if we service your location, contact us and we'll be happy to assist you. We pride ourselves on being one of the top rated puppy training companies in Denver, Colorado. Do You Offer Board and Train in Denver? Yes we do. All our training programs can be converted to board and train programs. We accept puppies who are 12 weeks and older. Each pet that stays with us is given a wonderful experience. We provide luxurious accommodations including private rooms, suites with individual beds, TVs, cameras, enrichment toys, and daily activities to keep your pup happily entertained. Do you Offer Puppy Training Classes? Yes, we offer our puppy training classes all across the Denver area. All our puppy classes come with private in-home dog training lessons. Whether you’re seeking puppy training or dog training, there’s no need to drive anywhere or deal with the over-crowded classrooms anymore! Dogs learn much better when they’re able to focus and practice in their own home. Because these are private lessons, our trainers are also able to personalize your lessons which makes us able to produce faster results with long-lasting positive behavior. What is Included in Your Puppy Training Classes? We offer two of the best selling puppy training classes in Denver, our Obedience Training 1 - on - 1 Course and our Obedience Training - Online Course . These private classes both include all of the important foundation behaviors and skills you’ll need to teach your puppy (sit, stay, come, leave it & more). These lessons also include essential tips for socializing your puppy, creating a strong bond with them, and how to set them up to be a perfect companion for life. In addition, the two most sought after lessons by new pet parents: potty training a puppy and crate training a puppy, will be covered in these courses. When Should I Start Puppy Training Classes? You can start formal training lessons at as early as 9-11 weeks old. Puppies who start learning obedience and manners at an early age are much less likely to develop behavior problems down the road. It’s important to start setting rules and expectations for them early on so that they have consistent guidance through their early development period. Remember that your puppy is always learning at this age whether you're purposely teaching them or not, so be clear about the behaviors you don't like as well as the behaviors you do. How to Start Training Your New Puppy You should start training your new puppy the rules of the house as soon as you bring them home. This includes where to go potty and how to use their mouth appropriately. Formal training can begin as soon as they're 9 weeks old. Bringing home a new puppy is such an exciting experience! They can bring us so much happiness; but poor behavior can often leave us feeling overwhelmed. Puppies are often easily distracted making training on your own a challenge. This is where our trainers come in to save the day. Our trainers have extensive experienced in managing puppy behavior. We know exactly how to get the most out of a training session with your puppy.

  • Positive Reinforcement Training | HAPPY PAWS - PetCare ®

    positive reinforcement training OBEDIENCE TRAINING 101 GUIDE Positive Reinforcement Training ​ Positive reinforcement training is the practice of training your dog through praising and rewarding their good behavior. These methods of training have been thoroughly studied and scientifically proven to be the most effective. Positive reinforcement training uses classical conditioning and operant conditioning to train dogs how to perform behaviors, how to feel comfortable with their environment, how to socialize well with others, and overall how to positively interact with the world around them. Classical conditioning is practice of pairing positive associations like food with experiences like meeting new dogs. Operant conditioning is the practice of giving your dog the opportunity to work for a reward like asking for a sit and then giving a treat. ​ ​ Punishment Based Training ​ ​ Punishment based training is the practice of training your dog by punishing bad behaviors through the use of intimidation or inflicting pain. KEY POINT: ​Many people are unaware that dogs only have a one second learning period after they have done a behavior to learn whether it was good or bad. This is why punishment is an extremely ineffective way to train. It is very unlikely that your dog will understand what it is they are being punished for. This is also why we have to be quick with our praise and treats when we use positive reinforcement training. Punishment based methods were mainly used throughout the 80’s and 90’s until studies brought to light how significant the negative effects were. Sadly there are still some trainers who use these methods which has made it hard for the public to know which methods they should really be using to train their dog. ​ ​ Why Punishment Can Have Disastrous Effects ​ ​ If your dog fears you due to repeated punishment, you will not have a dog who is eager to work for you or do what you ask of them. You will instead have a dog who is afraid to respond to your requests because they fear punishment. In this module, we go into more depth on how to be an effective dog leader . A dog who is fearful is more likely to bite and have major aggression issues down the road. Many dogs who develop fear of humans because of repeated punishment end up in the shelter system. There is a fine line between punishment and abuse. Punishment does not have to be out of cruel intentions but it can have extreme effects. For example, if a person came home to an accident on the floor and then grabbed their dog by the collar, dragged them over to it and yelled at them, they might not mean any harm by this. They might just intend to teach their dog not to go in the house. The problem is from their dog's perspective they have already passed the time period where they can even remember why they are being punished and are now only learning to be fearful of the person. Repeated experiences like the one just described can create a dog who is afraid of human hands coming towards their face or their collar. Since dogs most commonly bite out of fear you can see how this can quickly turn into a dangerous situation. Now imagine if a child goes up to that dog and tugs on their collar, this is a recipe for a bite and it’s likely they’ll now be another dog who ends up in a shelter. Dogs who are frequently yelled at, physically restrained, or caused pain by prong collars or shocking devices, have a high chance of developing fear, anxiety, and aggression. PRINT
