Here at Doggieology101, We strive to honor the dog as an animal and as a species. Dogs are pack animals and require a lot of direction and structure, rules and boundaries, but they can’t set it up on their own-that’s where we come in!
We teach people to become the leader dogs crave by setting up the rules, boundaries and structure, then show how to hold them accountable and maintain these new limits. We instruct and practice with owners on how to command the calm and relaxed state of mind, then set high expectations of impulse control and show dogs how to begin deferring to the humans and the training instead of to their impulses.
When non-negotiable rules, boundaries and consequences are established, the dog understands what's expected and what results is a dog that lives in a calmer, more relaxed state of mind. This is now a more respectful dog that begins to look to the owner for direction and guidance instead of trying to figure life out on their own. When a dog receives too much freedom, a perception of lack of structure, guidance and direction, unearned privileges and attention, often what results is an anxious, nervous, stressed out, amped up state of mind. This excited/aroused state is where all naughty happens! We help to extinguish unhealthy, annoying or unruly patterns that result and replace them with calm, controlled and obedient ones.
We can show you how to effectively power your dog down and turn your best furry friend into a calm, relaxed, well behaved member of the family!
