An Important Step

Sydney has recently graduated from and become certified with the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy.

Dog training is an unregulated business with highly variable levels of education and training ability. Professional certification from schools like the Karen Pryor Academy and the work of associations like the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers and the Society of Veterinary Behaviour Technicians are moving our industry closer to becoming a self regulating profession. Sydney has taken a big step in continuing education that will benefit her clients and people using Ultimate Puppy.

Congratulations Syd!

Myth Busters Intro

Myth Buster Intro Graphic

Any good puppy trainer will tell you that they spend a great deal of time dispelling misconceptions about canine behavior. Commonly held fallacies create and magnify problems and are unfair and confusing for the puppy. All to often we tend to hold the dog responsible for his actions when he is merely acting like a dog would act. We also have unrealistic goals and expectations, expecting too much, too soon from a puppy.

The proof is in the pudding, the majority of dogs are under socialized, under stimulated, and lack skill sets necessary to live harmoniously with us. This is largely due to misconceptions about what a dog does and what a dog needs. Knowing the truth about what motivates your dog as well as the basic understanding of his behavior will make the experience of raising your puppy significantly easier, less frustrating and more rewarding for both of you.

Test Your Dog Knowledge

Test your knowledge and dispel any myths you may have picked up along the way before you begin training your puppy.
