OUR MISSION & TRAINING METHODS
Our mission at Good Dog Workshop is to make a positive difference in the lives of dogs and dog owners, primarily through in-home, one-on-one training sessions, and also by educating animal shelter staff and dog rescue volunteers on responsible dog ownership and handling through instruction on the natural approach to working with dogs.
OUR TRAINING METHODS
We use natural training methods based on the way dogs instinctively communicate with each other. This training focuses on practicing calm, confident LEADERSHIP, regular structured EXERCISE, as well as achieving a true understanding of your dog...and yourself. You’ll learn how to strengthen your bond with your dog based on the concepts of mutual trust, respect and understanding. We'll provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to better understand and work with your dog. Essentially, we'll teach you to 'Speak Dog'.
Most unwanted dog behavior stems from the anxiety and frustration your dog feels because his needs aren't being fulfilled. Inadequate exercise, lack of structure and/or discipline, weak leadership, and inconsistent training are the main factors for a dog's unfulfilled needs. Our expert staff will teach you how to best fulfill your dog's needs, thereby giving you a happy, balanced dog and a more harmonious relationship between you and your dog.
Whether your dog is exhibiting anxiety, fear, nervousness, aggression (towards dogs or towards people), resource guarding or other territorial behavior, destructive chewing, obsessive barking, jumping up on people, pulling on-leash, housebreaking challenges, countersurfing, or dog socialization issues, Good Dog Workshop can show you how to fix the problem!
