Our goal is to help you form an amazing relationship with your dog so everyone enjoys learning. we believe dog training should never be forced; training should always be FUN!
We use a click or similar "reward marker" sound to let our dog know they did what we wanted, followed by a reward such as a treat . This type of positive reinforcement is called "Clicker Training" and you will learn all about it and other positive training methods in class!
From helping your puppies become socialized at a young age to basic manners to addressing undesired behaviors - Island Dog can help! Besides manners and obedience training, we also offer an array of "just-for-fun" classes such as Playground, Gymtastic Tricks, and "Where Is It?" - a treat based Nosework class. Find out what your dog enjoys to let their personalities blossom and improve your bond through games and play! Our group classes are limited to six dogs in our spacious main training room and outdoor fields, and all our group classes have an Instructor and Assistant., so your are ensured of plenty of one-on-one training. dog training
