Services/Products
Sometimes being mans best friend is a ruff gig. Training and caring for humans is an arduous but rewarding process. So its only fair to give our dogs what they deserve. Training builds and strengthens the bond between you and your pet while establishing a pack structure within the household. Everyone wants a well behaved reliable canine while out in public, walking on a loose leash ignoring everything but you and the key is TRAINING-TRAINING-TRAINING. It is never too early to start and certainly never too late to start. For every mistake made it takes 3000 times of doing it correct to fix that one mistake. Let us give you the tools to do it right the first time every time. There are four stages of training: Learning - This is where we will introduce the behaviors we want by luring with treats and praise. Reinforcement - Now your dog knows what we want and you will mark and reward or withdraw treats and praise. Proofing - Here we add distractions and take what we learned to "real life" situations. Maintenance - Continue to sharpen your skills because if you don't use it they will lose it.

Overall
Results

Our story: My family of 5 became 6 with an addition of a Doberman puppy. We moved to a shared space with another family and quickly realized we needed puppy training. Neither my husband or I have experience with training a puppy of the breed and we were not succeeding on our own. The puppy schools offered in pet stores or other outside sources were expensive and seemed too basic and not specialized for what we felt our puppy needed. After some research we found Achilles k9!



Training: We were scheduled to have our first meeting Saturday but when a situation arised Steve (our awesome trainer) agreed to come to our house at 6am the next morning. It didn't take long to see that the training is exactly what we were looking for. Our puppies behavior improved that day!



Pros:

* The training is one on one, so you and your dog have undivided attention and help getting all the commands, corrections, and rewards down properly.

* Steve will meet you at your house or a place of your choosing.

* He is available for questions and support

* The price is more than reasonable

* He offers more advanced training.



Cons: In my opinion there are none.



If you want to learn to extract the best from your dog and see value in quality, Steve with Achilles k9 is the one for you. Just be ready to do your homework!
