I've been asked many times by individuals if a problem their dog has is fixable - or if their dog is too young, too old, too rescued, the wrong breed, too big or small, to learn - and the answer is always that ANY dog can be calm, relaxed, and responsive to their humans!

All effective dog behavior modification begins with helping your dog achieve a calm, willing, and receptive frame of mind. As long as your dog is anxious or overexcited, she can't pay attention to what you are saying to her.

Here Squishy is demonstrating what a lack of anxiety looks like :-).

About “Dream Dog K9 Academy”

Helping dogs become the best friends and family members they can possibly be!

Our goal for every client: to help you develop a strong enough bond with your dog that you can safely and happily “Go Anywhere and Do Anything”, both on AND off leash.

Jack Youngfox, our lead dog behaviorist, has enjoyed a lifelong fascination with dogs and dog behavior. He first began working with dogs professionally as a teenager, teaching basic obedience lessons for dog owners he met at local parks and moderating an online dog training forum. He chose UC Davis for their excellent undergraduate Animal Science program and was fortunate enough to study under and work for Dr. Sophia Yin, a world-renowned animal behaviorist. Throughout college, he worked for several other dog trainers in Davis, CA and also taught lessons through the UC Davis Equestrian Center, which helped him learn how to explain the nuances of animal language to his students in a clear and concise manner.

As time went on and he pursued various dog sports (competitive obedience, tracking and agility) with his own extremely high-energy adopted lab mix, Onyx, Jack found that a purely command-centered, operant-conditioning, behavior-first approach to dog training was failing to give him and his clients the deep, meaningful connection and relationship they truly desired with their dogs.
