A friendly reminder to research your “breeder”. Look at reviews online, ask for references, and visit them or their facility when possible. If it seems “off” it probably is! If you want to buy something online, purchase socks. Don’t blindly purchase a puppy from the internet without seeing or visiting their facility. In today’s world with covid and puppy theft (yes, that happens!) be open to virtual tours :)

Iowa has *a lot* of puppy mills. Here are the five largest as of September 2020.

These facilities sell puppies to pet stores all over the country. As long as the public keeps buying puppies without doing their research, puppy mills will remain in business.

Covid Syndrome. (The Dog Trainer’s definition)

*Rocky* is 16 wks old. I work from home and spend all my time with him. When he is outside I am outside with him, usually playing fetch. My problem is how attached he is to me now. He demands my attention. If he is not in his crate, or has my undivided attention he is barking at me, nipping the back of my legs, jumping up or acting out ( grabbing pillows off couch, pulling curtains etc.) Its like he can not entertain himself without me now. If I go on my laptop, he tries to bite it, or cries and barks until I close it.

Covid has brought about an amazing opportunity for us to be home and what better time to raise a puppy!! As these pups are now approaching 6-12 months age, attention and separation are becoming very common issues.

Your time home raising your puppy has been very well cherished and valued , and we can help tie up the “loose ends” with the unusual challenges being home 24/7 has caused. Our programs address separation, socializing, and so much more.

We offer one on one Private Lessons and an immersive Board and Train Program.

Let us know if we can help!!

Welcome 1st Class of 2021!!

Way to kick of an amazing year with amazing puppies!!!

We enjoyed a long Christmas vacation (3 weeks!!!) and are so well rested and excited to be back to puppy school.

We have many pups learning off leash training in this class and can’t wait to let them run wild and free. We have many that are already friends and will really enjoy play time.

We look forward to our adventures together!!

We have been missing our residents we visit weekly and have tried to think of every solution.

It could easily be a year or more before the doors are open to visitors. And our friends just can’t go another day without a golden hug from one of our service dogs or therapy dogs.

So, we were inspired by a recent news article showing a nursing home with a new resident pet therapy dog. We think this would be an amazing option to get pet therapy back immediately while working around the freeze on visitors.

We have 2 therapy dogs ready to work! They have all training and vet care covered. All they need is a full time, 100% committed care taker and handler. We’d take care of the rest, ensuring training, certification, and ongoing support.

This special could would need to be ultra committed to their facility and to their new full-time Therapy Dog. They need to be local to us here for support and training.

If you know of a person or facility to connect us , please share. We are trying to get the word out and start helping!

Welcome to class Ada and little Marley!!

Ada is attending our one on one class to learn reliable obedience since she already knows so much. She is one smart cookie and I just loved my first lesson with her!

And sweet little Marley was just a joy! And by little I mean 5lbs!! Including her harness!! Her #1 task will be learning to walk by her owners side and not pull her the entire walk. Yes, even little dogs pull!

Our last picture is Baxter, he is in week 4 of Puppy Head Start. He is doing amazing and growing like a weed !

We look forward to our adventures together!!

Fear is the most inherited behavioral trait. It’s not always what you did do or didn’t do that causes a dog to display fear-based behaviors. But alas; we can help!!

Developing a clear, simple yet effective communication system with your dog helps him or her to feel content in that they can predict what will happen. This targets anxiety and teaches the dog they can control their external environment; thus giving them confidence!

Guess who’s back for another cuddle??

Ringo would be a wonderful companion for a senior.

Do we have any seniors looking for companionship?

Ringo walks wonderfully on the leash and would never be strong enough to pull. He is 1 year old and has all his vet care, is neutered, and has very healthy teeth. The only thing missing is a lap to snuggle up on.

This scary poster lady marked the start of Nina’s 2nd fear period. This is a normal and expected stage in development which begins around 6 months age.

If you watch your puppy carefully, you can almost note the exact moment they enter into this stage. Often a puppy will be afraid of a seemingly novel item which had never caused them concern or even interest previously.

This developmental stage helps dogs to develop a coping mechanism for stress. Resilience is a specific trait we select for!

Nina made friends with the strange poster lady , all it took was a cookie and a cuddle 💕

Way to go, Nina!

Zara is our youngest puppy. Today she is learning the retrieve task.

Little Zara is completing our service dog program and, as an adult, will work as a Therapy Dog and join our breeding program producing exemplary service puppies contributing to our mission at Appalachian.

We select for health clearances, temperament suitable for service /therapy work, environmental stability, and dogs that are amiable and highly trainable.

Little Zara is a picture of health and love, our mission!!

Nah, we are just playing!!

Ringo and Vortex were in “the slammer” with behavior problems and were not going to be able to be adopted. We think their rap sheet should be cleared !! They are good boys and making new friends each day, learning how to be calm and tidy in the house and excellent social skills.

Ringo the cutest little chihuahua will be ready for adoption soon!! Contact us for application details :)

Congratulations, Lily, on your very successful completion of Puppy Head Start Training!!

Lily has learned “everything puppy” from sleeping quietly overnight in her crate to a wonderful place stay.

Lily socialized with many dogs, a cat, bunnies, and more. She leaned over 5 commands include to heel on the left side for walks. Way to go Lily and Linda!!

Congratulations, Willow on your completion of Advanced Off Leash Training!

Willow had completed our On Leash training this summer and wanted to come back to learn part ii, Off Leash! Willow learned each of her obedience commands both on the leash and off leash. Did you know the hands-free off leash control is not just for the great outdoors?? Yes, that’s right! It’s very handy inside the home 🏠.

Congratulations, Willow @waggingtaildoodles

Congratulations Olive and Stoeger!!

These wonderful family dogs have just graduated our Basic On Leash Training program, working together side by side.

Their very dedicated humans have mastered their new communication system and have learned how to ask them of their obedience commands, working them together and individually.

Working with 2 dog households adds an extra fun challenge that can absolutely be accomplished, having them each listening and responding to commands appropriately. And as their owners said themselves, they have not turned into little robot dogs, but are just as happy a no joyful but actually listen and respond to them when they ask.

Olive and Stoeger are a team and their humans are a great team, working together!!

Congratulations to all!!

Congratulations on your graduation, Baymax!!

This big and tall goldendoodle has a winning personality and just needed a little help with manners. He completed our Basic On Leash Training and we added in a few helpful techniques and commands.

Baymax learned to be brushed, bathed, and have his nails trimmed without mouthing at his groomer. We are sure she will enjoy this!! He also learned the Leave It command to help him from stealing his kids’ stuffed toys and the Drop It command for when he grabs things he should not have. He also learned the ins and outs of crate training and the Crate command and runs in all on his own! Congratulations, big guy!!

US tightens definition of service animals allowed on planes

Breaking News!! “Emotional Support Animals” no longer recognized by airlines. Only Service Dogs and Guide Dogs will be permitted to travel and fly in cabin with their handler. This is a HUGE step forward. Unfortunately ESA’s has been an easy cover for anyone to take their unruly, untrained and sometimes aggressive pet (or animal-remember the turkey?!) into an airport and on a plane with crowed conditions, children in close proximity and REAL service and guide dogs trying to work. This is a win for passenger safety and a huge win for the safety of working guide and service dogs as they can and often are attacked when aggressive animals are in public places.

Thank you for the Lucy videos! She is making great strides, it appears. Miss you, Lucy!
We just recently purchased our Golden Retriever Luna from Appalachian Dog Training and we had a wonderful experience from talking with Katie to actually meeting our sweet puppy. Katie was great in going over training with us and our new baby and spending as much time as needed.
