Badin began her training with KeenDog at 8 weeks of age, from 8 weeks-4 months we did weekly one-on-one sessions in her home environment to lay a solid training foundation from the start! At 4 months of age she came to us for our 2 week immersion program to introduce the e collar to her training and up the distraction level (we can provide controlled distractions of other dogs and people more than owners typically can). By controlling the distractions in the beginning this sets a dog up for success and once behaviors are formed and understand we continue to expect more and challenge dogs further. Badin was ahead of the game so we also added in some fun trick training during her stay. She continues to board with us for any fine tuning and is always ready to learn something new!
Training your dog is lifelong. There is no quick fix. We can absolutely set you and your dog up for success and lay a nice foundation work, but it is up to the owner to follow through and expect more from their dog on a daily basis as well as continue to challenge them physically and mentally.
By working with a variety of training tools this ensures your dog isn’t reliant on just one.
