I noticed a significant difference after our first meeting. Jesse, our trainer, was extremely professional, patient and spent time answering all our questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this quality organization.

My spouse was highly skeptical and did NOT believe in spending $600 to trai a dog! We have each had multiple dogs in our lives whom were all"manageable"; however, I was tired of the pulling, yelling and we didn't want to fence our yard. Through Jesse's trading we now have the dog of our dreams! We let her outside and she sticks around, she doesn't jump on people as they enter our home, she comes immediately when called, she can go anywhere without a leash, it is truly amazing! My spouse brags so much about it that 2 people from his work are going to sign up! I share our amazing, wonderful experience with all and encourage them to spend the money. You will not regret it!

About This Deal

Dogs must learn to obey their masters, or they will never follow such common commands as "sit" and "show me the value of life through years of companionship." Learn from each other with this Groupon.

Dog Socialization: Pup Meets World

It's said that puppies ultimately grow into their paws, but the same can be said about their brains. Brush up on your doggy development with Groupon's study of dog socialization.

A puppy's development can be limited by the length of its leash. Veterinarians urge owners to introduce canines to as many new experiences—people, places, fellow dogs, and even inanimate objects—as possible in controlled, nonthreatening environments in a process called dog socialization.

This is particularly critical in the window between 4 and 14 weeks of age, when a puppy's brain is actively codifying proper and improper behaviors and working to distinguish safe stimuli from threatening situations. Like all other animals, dogs are most likely to misbehave or react aggressively when afraid. Whether their fear stems from the noise of a passing vehicle or the beard of a next-door neighbor, owners can help put them at ease by exposing their four-pawed friends to potentially uncomfortable situations and making them feel at ease. The more experiences, the better.

But simply taking the pup out of its comfort zone is not enough. Spending time off the leash at a dog park can be great for canine socialization, but owners must be sure to monitor their dog's behavior. Veterinarians insist that dogs be allowed to enter into new environments voluntarily, and advise owners to reinforce model behavior with treats and praise. If they respond fearfully or aggressively from any stimuli, owners should withdraw them from the situation and not return until their pup has calmed down. If the source of the fear happens to be human, owners should ask the person to step back, as this teaches the dog that it is not responsible for protecting the pack from undercover mailmen.

If this sounds like a lot to manage, most cities abound with ready-made, controlled socialization environments: obedience classes. Along with strengthening the bond between pup and owner, group classes are great venues for socialization. There, puppies can take their behavioral cues both from their owners' instructions and through modeling, as the human praise bestowed upon their well-behaved classmates encourages them to follow suit.
