Phone Consultation - if you have a problem with your dog, or your dog has a problem with your (they are most likely connected...), then you can call me through KEEN Advisors and I will do what I can to help you on the phone.

Seminars for dog lovers - also at your location! Most seminars can run in a 3-hour schedule, but they can be expanded into full weekend workshops and include practical dog work. "Custom designs" also available! The seminars/workshop can cover all kinds of topics related to responsible dog ownership with the aim of getting to understand your dog better and to get more out of your relationship with it. If your dog will enjoy what your learn, I will teach it!

Practical Training Courses for you and your dog - they can be run on a private basis or for your organization! We can start from scratch with 8-week puppies, or we can do professional Search & Rescue dog training - or anything in-between! My standards are very much focussed on achieving performance results, more than on the style in accordance with some standards that won't work in real life... training must be fun, first of all, but I like it best when it also makes sense, for both you and your dog.

Camp-outs! Spend a week (or two if you like) bringing the family along for intensive dog training in the woods! The camp courses are focussing on practical work, like tracking and search, and they are excellent ways to enhance the bonding between you and your dog. On a camp course, you will have no chance of "escaping" getting things done right - you will have constant access to supervision from your coach!

Private Lessons - for those who just cannot make a standard schedule fit with their plans... Whether you have a problem or just want to prevent getting one - or you want some serious training in a special area. I take special pleasure in assisting people with special needs - like coaching a handicapped person to train his/her own assistance dog. If you can maneuver a motorized wheelchair/scooter, use your voice and one hand, and invest the time and energy, then we can do it!

Special Assignments - businesses, private groups, organizations - if you have a need for getting dogs trained, and you have the people to do it but lack the education plan and/or the instructor, then let's talk! We can even go into educating your staff to use dogs for mold detection, pipeline leaks, and other areas where a dog nose simply is the most effective gas detector you can find! But it could also be a limited challenge in your organization you want a fresh assessment of - and some help to solve.

Warning: getdate(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /usr/local/www/sc_admin/k9joy.com/www/inserts/dogtruth(training2)_rotate.php on line 9

Is your dog happy to obey you?

When you give your dog a command, even a command to stop doing something it really likes to do, the reaction must be happy. If you do not see both an approach to you and a wagging tail, you have not trained this command very well...

Seriously: you do not achieve this by being strict. You achieve it by being consistent both in your demand and with your reward for performance well done. If you do not get the right balance with this, your training will not give the results it should.

Dog training is a 24/7 job for any serious pack leader. You can only have a break when the dog sleeps or is not physically able to interact with you.
