If you could choose only one basic obedience command for your dog to know really well, which one would it be?

Place, sit, down, come(recall), or heel?

Every dog is different.

We take this in to account with every dog that comes here for training.

Sometimes a training plan that works for most dogs doesn’t work as well for another dog. When this happens we try something different until we find what works.

Training can be lifelong. However, as long as you’re consistent and work your dog through their training regularly, their reliability will grow stronger and stronger.

Regular nail trims are important for your pup.

When you first begin trimming your dog’s nails, use lots of treats and go slow. Try to form a positive association with nail trims.

Does your dog like to chase and catch small critters?

We can’t take that drive out of a dog, but we can manage it with obedience. We do this by interrupting their fixation and then putting them into a command.

Penny and Augie have graduated our #onleash training program!! Congratulations☺️ This dynamic duo needed to learn how to gain independence from each other & how to be calm around distractions. Their owners did a wonderful job with the obedience commands and learning how to time their affection differently to help their dogs! We appreciate their dedication to their dogs and open minds! This team rocked it!! 🐾🎓👏

Congratulations!! Nellie has successfully completed our Puppy Head Start Program!

She is a smart pup who caught on quick with all her commands. Miss Nellie learned how to potty on leash - on command! - , and how to settle and rest quietly in her crate.

Nellie’s owner was pleased with all she has learned and will continue to learn at home with our maintenance training plan in place.

Congratulations Nellie & family!! Enjoy your trails and brews!!

Remmy has graduated from our Off-Leash training program!

Remmy is a super smart boy who needed to learn some rules. When he’s in a heightened-state, Remmy is more likely to make bad decisions. His family learned to have Remmy channel his energy into obedience to bring him back down to a manageable state-of-being.

Remmy was so much fun to work with and we’ll miss him! ❤️

Mena has graduated from our Off-Leash Training Program!

Mena is a strong-willed girl who needed to learn that we are the boss, not her. She learned that some of her old behaviors were not appropriate, such as jumping, chewing, and playing “chase”. Her humans now have a way of communicating with her and enforcing the new rules.

Congratulations Mena!

Ziggy our beloved dog-training kitty has crossed the rainbow 🌈. His heart murmur suddenly turned to acute failure. He lived healthy and well up until the moment. He is very sadly missed 💕

I have to say our staff was 100% in this event. They utilized their new @petcprtraining and identified Ziggy was in respiratory distress with grey gum color. He was placed in a carrier and ready for safe transport. We were prepared with directions & phone number of our emergency clinic and en route immediately. We never wanted to use our emergency plan, and we were grateful everything was in place so we could get Ziggy immediate care and comfort 💕

Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital provided immediate emergency care due to his respiratory distress and were very compassionate with the hard news. Their veterinary team is outstanding and a valuable asset to our region with 24/7 services and equipment to make diagnostic decisions.

Crate training is especially important for puppies.

Crate training helps prevents bad habits, such as destructive chewing or soiling in the house.

We recommend crating your puppy whenever you’re unable to supervise them. Focus on quality time with them over quantity of time! ☺️

As we work with the dogs, we build their trust in us and our bond strengthens.

Working them through new and challenging obstacles (like jumping into a big bucket) can increase their confidence, and can increase your confidence as well! You can guide your dog through these challenging scenarios, working as a team ☺️👏

A benefit to bringing your dog to Appalachian Dog Training is that your dog will work with multiple trainers during their time here. It is helpful as they learn to listen and respond to more than one voice. This can increase the challenge of their training, but helps set them up for success for when we turn the training over to you and your family ☺️

What does this mean? We begin preparation to film and edit a video (with your dog and a trainer) that goes over all the training information you will need for Graduation day, and beyond.

Watching this video prior to Graduation day helps set you (and your dog) up for success and can help you think of questions to ask us in-person ☺️

As we get further into summer, it’s important to be mindful of the temperature when you take your dog for a walk.

Here at Appalachian Dog Training we take the dogs on walks in the cooler part of the morning or evening.

The rest of the day we give them time to cool down between training sessions and work in the shade as much as possible.

Is your dog allowed on the furniture?

We like for our dogs to wait for permission to get on the furniture. If they jump up on the furniture without permission, we use the “off” command.

H U G E shoutout to our team!! Sharing smiles !!!! We are always striving to deliver the best care & training and your feedback is always appreciated!!
We love the whole team at Appalachian Dog Training. We sent our girl to the 3 week board-and-train and it's just incredible how much she learned in that short time frame and what a difference it has made in our daily life. The team was so helpful and patient in training us as well as we learned our new commands and it's incredible how much time and effort they put into the training video we received. We very much appreciate that the team is there for us for follow-up questions, support, suggestions and refresher training, if needed. We were so impressed with the professionalism of everyone at Appalachian Dog Training and their devotion to their doggie and human clients. I have been telling everyone I know to get their pup into a training program here, so I am so happy to recommend them. It is no doubt worth the investment that will last a lifetime. Thank you for all you do!

Working your dog around new and challenging things is a great way to build their confidence in themselves and strengthen their bond with you.

Use treats and positive reinforcement in the beginning to show them that new things aren’t scary. Exploring the world can be fun and rewarding!

Congratulations Gus!! Gus was a student of our private lessons and has graduated the on leash obedience program! He is a smart #welshcorgi who needed a little guidance to help him learn how to be calmer around distractions, stop pulling on the leash, and achieve neutrality around other dogs. He and his mom have worked hard these past 6 weeks and it has paid off! He can now go everywhere with reliability. We are very proud of both of them!! Go Gus and family👏🎓🐾

We do off-leash training here at Appalachian Dog Training. This means that we train your dog so that you will be able to communicate with them without a leash.

However, there will be times where you still need to have a leash attached to your dog. Leash laws and safety always come first. You will still use the e-collar and remote to communicate with your dog, but you have that leash attached to their buckle collar (not the e-collar) as a physical tether to abide by laws and to keep your dog safe from things like traffic.

Well, Bucky did it!! He is officially a graduate of our behavior modification program and we couldn’t be more proud ❤️
This strong-willed, independent, dominant dog was giving his owners a run for it! By the time he made it to us, he already thought it was his world and they were just living in it. He was impossible to control inside the home and out, especially around distractions. He would pull them down the street if they attempted to walk him, chose bad decisions more often than not, and really made life difficult for them. With consistent training, firm structure, and development of a method of communication with him via the @dogtraofficial #ecollar ,we were able to establish control and provide Bucky the leadership he needed. These dogs aren’t the basic or easy cases, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to help them. This family is dedicated to doing what’s best for their dog, even when it requires tough love, and we are so proud of all of them. They really stepped up when Bucky needed it so we know they can take it from here☺️

We like to have fun and get creative with our training plans 🤪

We try to expose our board and train dogs to as many “real life” scenarios as possible while they’re here. This can show us if we need to work them around something in particular. This could be a fixation on wheels, a fear of lawn mowers, or uncertainty of stairs.

We want to help your dog remain stable and build a positive association with the scenarios they encounter in everyday life ☺️

07/06/2022

It may feel hard to start enforcing the rules of training with your dog. You may be worried that your dog won’t love you as much or that you’re being mean to them.

Rest assured, dogs thrive when there are clear rules and boundaries. The bond with your dog will actually grow stronger as you communicate with them what’s right and what’s wrong behavior.

When your dog knows the rules and knows you will follow-through with enforcing them, you will eventually have to tell them “no” less often. That means more time for praise and love! ❤️🐾

We are teaming up with Marlow’s Mutts-n-More to get this amazing little guy adopted. Pisgah Pete was selected from Transylvania Animal Shelter for the Rescue Train/Adopt Program through Appalachian DogTraining, LLC. Pete is a 17 pound Jack Russel Terrier Mix . He is medium to medium high energy and will require a family that will continue to exercise him with either daily walks or hikes (he would make an excellent hiking buddy). He is great with other dogs, cats and even farm animals. This little guy has done amazing with the training program and not many dogs get the opportunity to get this extensive training to help them get the 2nd chance they deserve. See a lot of dogs don't show well at shelters - they are on sensory overload and they do not present well - Pisgah Pete was one of those dogs but Ashley saw past that and knew that this boy deserved a 2nd chance and what an amazing opportunity for him to get the training he has. And he has succeeded and is ready to find a family to call his own. If you are interested in Pisgah Pete - please go to our website www.boxerbuttsandothermutts.org and fill out our adoption application. If you have any questions at all - please feel free to message us. Pisgah Pete is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, current on his heartworm prevention , and dewormed - the only thing missing is a family to call his own. So lets make that happen
