Customized Dog Training Keeps Dogs and Owners Happy

You just brought home an adorable new four-legged friend—it was love at first sight. Bonding is easy, but after a week of being overly excitable and completely uncontrollable, it’s clear that major training will be needed.

Enter Westchester K-9, the dog-training company that specializes in teaching dogs and their owners the basic principles of obedience—all that’s needed for a happy and harmonious life together. Certified balanced dog trainers create customized training programs using the specific advanced tools and techniques that are best for the needs and age of the dog. To ensure the best possible results, the training is conducted at Westchester K-9’s Carmel, New York location, with pick-up and drop-off services included with all programs.

“Clients call us for many different reasons,” says company owner Stacy Hirsch. “Their dog may be too excitable, Jumps up, pulls on the leash, doesn’t follow commands, or is unruly in the house. Others may have house-training issues or be too aggressive. Often clients have tried everything they can think of and have run out of ideas. But, we can address all of these problems and more.”

No two dogs are alike. That’s why Westchester K-9 takes an individual training approach—on-site and at your own home—with each and every one.

For your four-month-old pup, Westchester K-9 recommends its three-to-four-week Foundation Training program that focuses on beginning, on-leash obedience and the Sit, Down, Place, Heel, and Recall commands. After establishing a close bond with your pet, the trainer communicates all commands daily, consistently, and patiently. The program also includes basic behavior modification to replace negative habits with acceptable behavior, consistently and patiently redirecting your pet to a positive behavior each time a bad habit is noticed.

Although you can count on your puppy ending the formal program with an excellent foundation, the training doesn’t end there. Westchester K-9 arms you with the knowledge and tools to continue the work at home.

And, as your best four-legged friend continues to develop and grow, you know where to turn for help at different stages. For example, the Dream Dog package is designed to build on a strong foundation with the ultimate level of freedom and safety. That means adding the latest remote technology that gives your dog the freedom to roam off leash, knowing your dog will return each time when called. The remote technology can also help put a halt to a range of negative behaviors, including jumping, aggression, chewing, digging, and running out of the door or dashing out into the street.

Throughout every program, trainers stay connected giving ongoing support by phone and e-mail. But, if you’re concerned about your dog slipping back to bad habits or returning to old behavior during a vacation, not to worry. Westchester K-9’s Refresher course can quickly reinforce the previous training and have your dog back to being your well-behaved best bud in no time.
