PRO DOG WALKER ON DOG TRAINING
Purpose of Dog Training
There are many methods of dog training and objectives, from basic obedience training to training for law enforcement or the military, search and rescue, hunting, working with livestock, guide dogs and other assistance to people with disabilities, and protecting people or property.
As pack animals, wild dogs have natural instincts that favor cooperation with their fellow dogs. Many domestic dogs, either through instinct or breeding, can correctly interpret and respond to signals given by a human handler.

I do not have formal education as a dog trainer, but through experience I have developed a talent for training dogs to walk with me in a calm and well behaved manner.
Basic Dog Obedience Training
Your goal is to communicate with your dog in a humane way that the dog understands - to reward desired behavior while ignoring or correcting undesired behavior.
Basic pet obedience training usually consists of six behaviors:
▪ Recall ("come", "here" or "in")
▪ Close (or loose-leash walking)
A puppy requires discipline, consistency, and the patience of its owner. The puppy training phase is integral in raising a healthy and happy dog and keeping a safe and fun home environment.
Communicating with Your Dog
Fundamentally, dog training is about communication. From the human perspective, the handler is communicating to the dog what behaviors are correct, desired, or preferred in what circumstances and what behaviors are undesirable.
A handler must understand communication from the dog. The dog can signal that he is unsure, confused, nervous, happy, excited, and so on. The emotional state of the dog is an important consideration in directing the training, as a dog that is stressed or distracted will not learn efficiently.
Give me a try (Michelle Halpern, Pro Dog Walker). Your dog will enjoy the outing and learn some dog walking social skills!
