BEYOND THE DOG VIDEOS

Teaching Appropriate Chewing

If you’ve caught your dog chewing on a pillow or shoe on more than one occasion, you might want to think about training them not to do so. In our video, Kristyn teaches a Presa Canario pup that toys are meant for chewing. Instigating proper toy play will help your pup learn the difference between appropriate and inappropriate chewing.

Training Your Dog to Stay

‘Stay’ is one of the more crucial obedience lessons for your dog to learn. Luckily it is also one of the easiest for them to pick up on! By using our method, like Kristyn in the video, your dog could learn this basic command in a matter of days. Talk to our team today to get started.

Teaching A Dog To Come Using Their Name

In our video here you can watch Sean teach this energetic little pup his name. This is crucial for dogs as it not only makes your life together easier, but it also makes teaching them more advanced skills too!

Teaching Your Pup to Sit

Much like ‘stay’, ‘sit’ is a fairly basic command for dogs to learn. However, that doesn’t mean it is any less important than other obedience skills. Here you can see Sean teach this adorable pup to understand and obey the ‘sit’ command.

Preparing Your Puppy for Veterinary Visits

When training a puppy, one of our top priorities to increase friendly behavior. A great first step for preventing aggression in your dog is to prepare them for veterinary trips. Watch how Sean helps to prepare this Vizsla puppy for future handling.
