…are looking for a trainer who will do all the work. This course is meant for dog owners who are committed to teaching and training their own dogs with the help of an instructor.
…are seeking help for dealing with a fearful, reactive or aggressive dog. In these cases, you may want to schedule a behavior consultation with Doc Marose for advice on how to proceed with your dog’s training and behavior modification.
This course provides instruction to the dog owner in basic dog training. BOTH dog owner and dog must be present during the classes.
You and your dog meet with me Dr. Marose Magpily, your instructor, once a week to learn and practice various training exercises. All sessions are conducted at the Training Venue.
Owners should be able to commit to 6 weekend sessions at the Training Venue, each 60-90 minutes long; and at least three 5-15 minute sessions of daily training with their dog in fulfillment of the home exercises, to produce at least the minimum amount of training progress in your dog. Of course, more daily training time and more repetitions of the exercises will increase your dog’s rate of progress significantly.
You the owner will…
…gain a better understanding of your dog.
…train your dog, and through training, develop a better bond with him/her.
…become knowledgeable in modern science-based methods of dog training.
…get advice on how to solve common behavior problems such as playful nipping/biting, hyperactivity, destructive chewing etc.

…learn to respond to basic position cues under zero to minimum distractions
…learn to develop impulse control, which is useful for home manners.
…be introduced to holding basic positions and coming when called under minor distractions
…learn how to walk nicely when on leash.
