(Puppies under 6 months)
Pavlov’s Program prioritizes house training, nipping, and destruction. And we supplement with obedience, and self-control exercises.
OBEDIENCE LESSONS INCLUDE
Pavlov’s programs are customized for your puppy’s specific needs. And while we may not get through all the lessons mentioned above, you and your trainer will discuss priorities, and training goals during your puppy’s first training session.
Pavlov’s approach to socialization is a bit counter-culture. Have you ever visited Europe and noticed the calm, biddable demeanor of dogs in public? Did you know that European dogs rarely attend puppy socialization class? Pavlov understands that there are pros and cons to socialization classes. We will teach you how to foster a socially stable dog that combines the benefits of both approaches.
Regarding our general training approach, in the early stages of training we lay down a liberal foundation of positive reinforcement. Polite behavior results in wonderful consequences! Once expectations are unambiguously clear, your dog learns that there are consequences for both polite behavior, and consequences for impolite behavior.
Your dog trainer will assess which consequences will be most effective for your puppy, as that is dependent upon your puppy’s unique personality and temperament.
Pavlov teaches BOTH verbal commands, and hand signals.
“I’m very type A and spent about 3 months researching in-house dog trainers before our puppy was even born. PAVLOV kept coming up in reviews. We just finished Obedience I and our dog trainer did not disappoint!” -Rebecca Bentzen
“My family and I originally hired PAVLOV because found them on Denver’s A-List. We adore our dog trainer!” -Eddie Wu
