Don't be a MOTO! Moto's Obedience program

I named this program "Don't be a Moto" because if you had of met Moto when he was young (prior to me becoming a dog trainer) you would have been shocked!

 

Don't get me wrong- he always been friendly, and smart but his skills lacked big time. I didn't have the knowledge or skills to get him to be obedient at all. Zero recall, Counter Surfing, Chewing apart everything and anything, Separation Anxiety, you name it I probably experienced it.

 

Example (funny story) we once were walking in a park where there was a baseball game. I walked well past the diamonds and when I got back to the deserted trail, I let Moto off leash- well what did he do?

 

Took off back to the ball diamonds ran out to 2nd base and proceeded to do a number 2 on the base. Game had to stop, I had to gather myself and Bear up, catch Moto as he ran around to all the players looking for pets and food, get him leashed up and then go collect his deposit on 2nd base.  

Do you have a Moto in your life? Is your dog a challenge and don't know how to train them? The Moto's Obedience Course may be for you. 

What this course includes;

reverse the Reactive Dogs

  • Is your dog reactive on the leash?

  • Does your dog appear to be fearful and shy with dogs and/or people? 

  • Does it pull, yank, bark, snap, snarl at other dogs as you walk by?

  • Are you afraid of meeting other dogs/people on the trail?

  • Do you avoid and walk at odd hours to avoid contact?

 

I can help you by building confidence, have the skills to redirect and engage with your dog so you both can get past the problems you are facing. 

Teaching  - Transformation - Togetherness for your reactive dog, is a 5-week course designed for committed dog owners who want to have well behaved and responsive companions.

 

This program includes: 

1 x 90 min Assessment (may include a walk with Trainer) 

The assessment will include talking over your goals, equipment being used, issues and core problems and history of your dog so I can get a good look at what is happening. 

We will look at any obstacles that may get in your way and be discussing the best training methods for your dog.

1 x 60-minute weekly Skills to Success  (Number of sessions varies due to the severity of dogs issues) -private session at your home so you can gain confidence while having fun learning how to communicate effectively with your best friend. I will guide you in teaching your dog how to focus and perform a behaviour using positive reinforcement. Your dog will eventually learn to focus on you instead of being reactive.

 

2 x 60-minute Private Walk with a trainer weekly– I will personally take your dog for a walk so they can gain confidence and calm while meeting other dogs and people, desensitizing and counter conditioning your reactive dog.

Fun and Focused Leash Walking Workshop.

This is a 1.5-hour workshop covering the fundamentals of the 4 most common problems that even smart dog owners encounter, keeping them exhausted, frustrated and too embarrassed to walk their dogs.

Are you experiencing these common problems?

  • Being pulled into the dog park, stores, daycare, the car, out the door

  • Personal injuries caused by the strain and stress of constant pulling

  • Feeling embarrassed and frustrated when out walking, yelling at your dog to “slow down,” “wait,” and “STOP PULLING”

  • Spending hundreds of dollars on harnesses and collars, with little or no difference in slowing down your dog

  • Your dog ignoring you completely

I used to experience all of these issues and problems, and now want you to benefit from the information I have. In this workshop, I will be explaining, demonstrating and guiding you along a journey to Fun and Focused Loose-Leash Walking.

We will explore:

  • Engagement – What is engagement, and how to get your dog to pay attention to you.

  • Training Techniques that will have your dog mastering the loose leash.

  • Equipment – What type of equipment to use and how to make sure it fits.

  • High Value Treats – When and how to use treats to get the results you need to build a better relationship with your dog.

I hope you see you all there to learn how to have engaging FUN walks with your dog!
