Nathan Woods Dog Trainer

Nathan Woods Dog Trainer I believe that every pet dog has the potential to achieve the responsiveness expected of a dog competing in the obedience show ring. You will be taught how to extinguish bad behavior starting the first day.

Your dog will develop a habit of desirable behavior, this results in a harmonious relationship between you and your dog. You will learn the practical value of all obedience exercises as your dog progresses in the program. It is our objective to set owners up to succeed with our dog training.

At the end of the day, the most important thing I can help you teach your dog is how to perform off leash around high-level distractions. This can be a life saver.

Here is Ozzie, the 6 month old Wheaton Terrier puppy, fully engaged in play with some friends at the dog beach. With one command, he immediately comes running! Good boy Ozzie!!!!

Roux is a 5 month old Lab puppy practicing her obedience skills downtown. I like to inform pet owners that the main difference between a “Marley dog” and a “Seeing Eye dog” is that one is used to cooperating around distractions and one isn’t. The more challenging the environment, the more reliably trained your dog will become.

Emma, the 6 month old Mini Aussie, is not only trained to ring bells to go outside for a potty break, she also goes to a small fenced area (zoom in) with gravel and good drainage. This is a great trick for keeping a clean lawn. Good girl Emma!

Training tip: Dog daycare is a great way to socialize your young puppy. Learning how to play well with others is an essential part of your dog's development. (10 month old German Shepherd, Axel, playing keep away with 4 month old Chocolate Lab, Jody. )

Don't let rain stop you from practicing with your dog. Underground parking and covered shopping centers are great alternatives. They also offer a new variety of distractions your dog might not be used to.

Dog Training Expectations

Check out my new video about why I think it is so important for you to train your dog.

"I've found that most people consistently underestimate their dog's potential. My purpose in life is to help people bring out the best in their dogs. Expect more from your pet!"
