Be the Leader Your Dog Will Love, Trust & Respect

 

Testimonial from Dr. Diana Stiles from Chino Hills Small Animal Hospital:  “I can’t say enough wonderful things about Wendy Blanch and her training methods.  My family and I wanted a trainer to work with our dog one-on-one in our home since that is where we felt good behavior was most important.  Wendy started helping us train our Labrador puppy, Cody, at about 12 weeks of age.  Her training methods were gentle and effective and after only 4 lessons with Wendy, we had an obedient, well-behaved puppy that not only respected the rules of the house, but also respected us as his pack leaders.  With Wendy’s emphasis on becoming the pack leaders so that your dog always respects you and wants to please you, we have been able to successfully continue more advanced training with Cody.  When people meet Cody, we are constantly asked how he became such a well-behaved, obedient dog and we always give credit to Wendy.  As a veterinarian, I continue to recommend her to all of my clients looking for gentle effective training for their puppies or adult dogs with behavioral issues.”

Behavioral Training 

Aggressive Dog.jpg

What are the behavioral issues you are having with you dog?  Our training is ideal for Aggression, Sibling Rivalry, Separation Anxiety, Door Rushing, Jumping, Barking, Lunging at dogs on leash and more.  Behavioral issues are due to a lack of leadership.  Dog's view the world in terms of pack, so you are their human/dog pack.  All dog's want to live in a well-organized pack, with a social structure that makes them feel safe.  Leadership is a role your dog will take on if you do not provide it.  Once you know how to provide leadership and take that unwanted role away from your dog, you'll see your dog transform into a happy, secure, well-behaved dog!  Wouldn't it be nice to be your dogs Pack Leader?   You should be able to control your dog with just your voice!

Ideal For:

  • Aggression
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Lunging at dogs/people
  • Barking, etc!

 Obedience Training

There's nothing better than an obedient dog!  The benefits of obedience training your dog are many! They really enjoy it, it creates a strong bond between you and your dog, you're training the dog instead of the dog training you, they learn to think and there's nothing safer than an obedient dog!  I teach obedience training without the use of pinch, choke or shock collars.  I also do not use treats or clickers - because it's about creating a bond with your dog!  Instead we use PRAISE!  

Lesson One: 

  • Obedience Training:  During the very first lesson, we will teach Sit, Stay, Walk to Heel and Recall! We will add to the obedience training, including down, distance control, back-leash training, etc.  
  • Behavioral issues.  Does your dog run to the door barking?  Pull on the leash?  Lunge at other dogs? Jump on you and your guests?  Jump on the furniture?  Bark?  We will cover all of those issues right away!  You will experience results right away!

On-going Lessons:  

  • On subsequent lessons we focus on perfecting obedience and behavioral issues, including distance recall (off leash control), using just your voice.  Your goals are my goals!

Socialization

Time to have fun!  Does your dog need help with socialization?  You can meet "My Little Pack of Dog Trainers", Lily, Bogey, Sophia and Paco!  My Pack has been socializing other dogs successfully for years. We first work on obedience training with your dog, so when at the park, you will succeed at "voice control" with your dog.  I have successfully worked with many "reactive" dogs, including those being fostered and those at local animals shelters, such as Priceless Pets in Chino Hills.

We meet at a local dog park, just your dog and mine.  They will learn to socialize in a well controlled area with my dogs that are very non-reactive, calm and well-socialized.  Your dog's experience with other dog's will be a very positive one!
