We understand the joy of having a well-behaved and happy dog by your side. That’s why we’ve crafted our dog behavior training programs to be effective, compassionate, and tailored to your dog’s individual needs.
How do you train a dog to have good behavior?
At Puptown Houston, we follow a balanced approach to dog behavior training, combining positive reinforcement techniques with gentle corrections when necessary. Our certified trainers understand that every dog is unique, and they customize their training methods to suit your pup’s personality, age, and breed.
1. Positive Reinforcement
Positive reinforcement is the backbone of our training philosophy. We use treats, praise, and affection to reward good behavior and encourage your dog to repeat the desired actions. When your pup understands that positive behaviors lead to rewards, they become more eager to please and learn.
2. Reward-Based Training
Our trainers focus on teaching your dog basic obedience commands such as sit, stay, come, and heel using reward-based techniques. This helps create a strong foundation for good behavior and fosters a trusting bond between you and your furry friend.
Socialization is crucial for a well-adjusted dog. Our training programs include controlled socialization sessions where your pup can interact with other dogs and people, helping them build confidence and improve their behavior around others.
How do you correct bad behavior in a dog?
While positive reinforcement is the cornerstone of our training approach, we also understand that correcting undesirable behaviors is essential for a well-mannered dog. However, we emphasize the use of humane and gentle correction methods to ensure your pup’s emotional well-being.
Instead of scolding or punishing your dog for bad behavior, we focus on redirecting their attention to more appropriate actions. For example, if your dog jumps on guests, we teach them to sit politely instead.
Time-outs can be effective for discouraging certain behaviors. If your dog displays aggressive or overly excited behavior, a short time-out period can help them calm down and learn self-control.
3. Leash Training
Leash pulling is a common issue among dogs. Through leash training, we teach your pup to walk politely on a leash, making walks more enjoyable for both of you.
