Founded in 2007 by Greg Brooks and his wife Letisha, Front Door Dog Training took on a unique approach by offering in-home private dog training lessons for owners and their dog. Many unwanted dog behaviors occur in various settings, therefor Greg found it in the best interest to train where the issues occurred ensuring the best success rate for all. Field trips to the dog park, outdoor shopping malls, veterinary clinic as well as other places helped the owner build confidence to effectively handle their, at times, overly excited dog, in any environment. This serves as a dual purpose because the dog is then challenged to his level of obedience while focusing during distractions. Front Door Dog Training methods of training include positive reinforcement and are tailored to meet the needs of the client and canine companion.
The following services are available:
Behavior Modification – problem behaviors can include but are not limited to separation anxiety, resource guarding, aggression and establishing pack order within a household.
1. Incorporate training throughout your daily activity. Ask your dog to “sit” before feedings or to “wait” before allowing the dog to exit a door.
2. Stay consistent. Consistency yields results along with following through. Often time when you feel like you dog “won’t listen” it is because he already knows you will give in before he does, letting him have his way.
3. Communicate with all family members in the home so that everyone is using the same training methods and commands taught by the trainer. “Cody sit” and “Sit Cody” sound similar to us but is absolutely different to canine ears.
FEATURED FRONT DOOR DOG OWNER
Just last month we adopted a 9 month old Boston Terrier to add to our 2 dog pack. Once she came into the home, everyone was stressed out showing teeth, snapping at each other. We had no idea what to do or how to get harmony back in our home. There was even a discussion of giving the dog back because this obviously was not going to work. The call to Greg this time
was urgent and we asked him to come ASAP before someone got hurt. First visit he had the pack order in place, puppy was sitting and following the down command. Last week all 3 dogs were sitting in front of him, including our 13-15 year old girl. We are in awe! We highly recommend Front Door Dog Training for any training needs your dog(s) may have.
