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 shelters and dog rescues on responsible dog ownership and safe & effective handling through instruction on the natural approach to working with dogs.
OUR TRAINING METHODS
We'll teach you to 'Speak Dog'. Our natural training methods are based on the way dogs instinctively communicate with each other. This training focuses on demonstrating calm, confident LEADERSHIP and providing regular structured EXERCISE for your dog. You’ll learn how to strengthen your bond with your dog based on Trust and Respect to achieve a true understanding of your dog...and yourself. We'll provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to better understand and work with your 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, dog socialization issues, or just simple puppy manners, Good Dog Workshop can show you how to fix the problem!
