Dog Training In Alberta

If you are looking for Calgary Dog Training then Dog Squad can be an excellent fit for you.  We are often called in when other dog trainers haven’t had the experience to work with your dog.  Each dog trainer is in varying degrees of expertise and given a few years and continuous learning they will all be expert dog trainers.

When looking for a Dog Trainer in Alberta you should have a chat with them on their training techniques and ask to speak to some of their references to see how they have been treated.  As a rule we will never do anything to your dog that we wouldn’t do to ourselves.

We often get clients who have tried three or four other dog trainers and have not reached the goal they were looking for.  Every dog is different and in many cases these other dog trainers have just not found a way that your dog likes to learn.  Dogs are like people and they all have different personalities and learning styles.  From our experience in dog training you need to first and foremost have a good bond and relationship with your dog and then you can address the training areas you want to have dealt with.

Dog training should always be fair to the dog.  A dog trainer should never have to yell at your dog or use excessive force.  At the same time a dog trainer can’t be too soft and let a dog do whatever they want.  Using treats are a good way to build a foundation.  As many of our clients have found some dog trainers stop there.  After treat training a dog has to learn that they need to respond regardless of whether a treat is present.

Many people say my dog listens well when I have treats and there are not any large distractions.  As soon as we don’t have treats or the distraction is too great my dog stops listening.  An experienced dog trainer will be able to show you how to retain that strong bond and have a dog who listens to you in any
