Imagine being in an unfamiliar household, with people you’ve never met before. This family clearly cares about you; they feed you and play with you. However, when you try to communicate with them, they don’t seem to understand. You speak a different language, and have a different culture than them. You try to communicate in the only way you know, but this only seems to frustrate your new family. You begin to feel overwhelmed, because all you want is to tell your new family how you feel. This may be how your dog is currently feeling, but not to worry! Here at Loving Paws of Clermont we can help you and your dog speak the same language!
Dogs act and communicate in a very different way than humans do. What is considered normal behavior for dogs can be considered inappropriate behavior by their humans. That’s why it is of the utmost importance that we teach dogs our expectations of them, in a way that they can understand. At Loving Paws of Clermont we use positive, science based training to teach your dog, and show you, the best techniques to create a harmonious relationship with your furry friends.
All of initial private sessions include a FREE 30 minute consultation prior to session begin.
