How does the Board and Train Work?
How Other Training Programs in the Area, work …
First, you have to fight traffic, as you rush home from a long day of work to pickup your dog. Then you have to get your dog loaded into your vehicle and hit the road again … fight through traffic once again, so that you aren’t late for the training class. Once you arrive, you walk into the back of a store or warehouse, only to find 9 other people there attempting to control their dog, while they wait on the trainer who is out back finishing up their smoke break.
Once the class begins, the trainer will expect you to have your dog under control, as not to interrupt others while they are attempting to learn … which doesn’t make sense, because if your dog was under control, you wouldn’t need a trainer. If you aren’t able to gain control of your dog, you may be asked to leave … HA! Should you be so lucky as to get to stay, you will then begin the exciting part of the training where you walk in circles and throw treats at the dog … WAIT, did you forget your treats?
Then, you will teach your dog to sit, stay, down and walk on leash. Excellent! But wait … isn’t there more to owning a dog than sit, stay, down and walking on a leash? How is this type of training going to help you when your dog is trying to rush out your door? What about when your dog is bombarding guests at the door? Let’s not forget about the excessive barking and the fence fighting, stealing of food from your kids, destroying your furniture or carpet or peeing in your home!
Well, now that you have completed 6 classes, that took a month an a half to complete, at an hour a week … has any of that sit, stay, down or walking on a leash helped you with the real world? Highly Doubtful!
How Our Training Works …
Listen folks … there is so much more to owning a dog than sit, stay, down and walking on a leash! If you want real world results, then it’s important you train for the real world. You know what happens with your dog, in your home, when the pizza guy comes to the door … or when the kids are running in and out … or when the mail man walks by. You know what the scene is when you come home from work and walk into your home, only to find your dog is doing something, or has done something they shouldn’t be doing.
Dayton Dog Trainer has thrown out the old, typical methods of training and we have designed a board and train service that is fit for the average dog owner … the normal, or even abnormal family … the real world!
Our Board and Train service is designed to provide real results, for the real world. The way our program works is simple.
Once we have come out to your home an evaluated, we will advise you of what type of service we recommend, how long we project it will take and what the cost of it will be. If we are going to take your hard earned money, we at least want to know what we are working with, as every dog is different and we don’t plan on putting your dog through the “one size fits all” course. Once service is retained, we will have you drop your dog off to your trainer on a Sunday evening. Once your dog arrives at the trainers home, your dog will go straight into a crate for the night, which will allow them to adjust to the new sites, sounds, smells and people, without a system overload. We call this a “cool down period”. We have you drop off in the evening so that this time in the crate is simply spent sleeping through the night, while your dog absorbs the new environment. our dog will get to go out for restroom breaks during this time.
The next morning, your dogs’ day will begin at 4:30am. They will come out of their crate for their first restroom break. Your dog will eat at 5am and they will go back out for another restroom break at around 6am. Once they have done all of this, they will get to remain outside of their crate and become part of our family. The trainer will work with your dog 3 to 4 times a day, one on one. In between those sessions, your dog does not get to regress, as they will be living in an environment where our only job is to work with your dog. During the day, as normal life happens, we will use those happenings or situations as an opportunity to work with your dog. We will use the pizza guy coming to the door, or the mail man walking by, or the kids running in and out, as a perfect time to train. If the situations allows for it, we will even take your dog to our children’s ball games or to the local parks or in town to work in those real world, natural environments. Dayton Dog Trainer will always try to put your dog through as many environments as we believe you would do, so that we get that real world, honest result.
At around 5pm, your dog will eat again and will go back out for a restroom break at around 6pm. Then, at around 10pm, your dog will go back in their crate for the night.
As with any of our services, Handler Training is always included. When you arrive to pickup your dog … you will begin your handler training. Handler Training is where we teach you what you should be doing … how to properly command and correct, how to read body language, how to be proactive, rather than reactive … how to understand and interpret energy. Handler Training is responsible for about 40% of your result and outcome of this entire process.
