Acme Canine’s team of pup-loving trainers, who has trained over 1,000 dogs, brings a combined 30+ years of experience to their sessions, gently and humanely improving human-pooch relationships with individualized training plans. During the in-home canine assessment, instructors observe dogs in their own environment, taking note of the distractions, triggers, and television theme songs most likely to prompt misbehavior. Dog-whisperers combine canine psychology, learning theory, and behavior modification to guide dog development, and customize individualized training plans to each family’s needs.
Alternately, puppy-preschool classes help groups of up to eight recently created canines and their owners build a healthy relationship. Housetraining lessons help protect carpets and furniture, and techniques that discourage play-bites prevent teary children and punctured weather balloons. Owners learn to properly handle pups for examination and grooming, and dogs develop socialization skills useful for in-depth political discourse. Topics vary week to week, as classes rotate through crate training, boundary setting, first aid, nutrition, confidence building, and puppy commands, and multiple owners are welcomed. Additional staff insight sails into humanoid inboxes by way of an e-newsletter and “trick of the month” mailing.
