South Texas Service Dogs takes pride with being specialized in Service Dog training. Our service dog training and experience include Mobility Assistance, Medical Alerting for Anxiety, Depression, Diabetes, High/Low Blood Pressure, Seizures, Autism, PTSD, Physical/Mental/Sexual Trauma.
From basic obedience to American Kennel Club CGC Certification, South Texas Service Dogs will work close with you and your dog to achieve success.
Good communication is key!
We not only train your dog, we also help you better understand your dog's body language and the body language you present to your dog.
Often times dog owners feel as if their dogs are not listening to them. They give in to allowing their dog to roam free in their homes and then wonder why they struggle teaching the dog the most remedial commands.
Drive, Command, Marking, Timing, Reward/Praise
One of, if not the most important factors in training your dog is:
What drives your dog to not just get excited but to work for you? Food/treats, toys, affection, verbal/physical praise? We'll find your dog's drive to obey commands while teaching you the importance and proper use of marking, timing and reward/praise.
Loose Leash and Off Leash
Our goal is giving you a confident, patient, non aggressive, obedient dog that you could trust to not pull while on a leash, not run away when off leash while ignoring distractions/triggers.
As an introduction to Basic Obedience and Service Dog training pups will learn to focus on their handler. We will train them to know their name and to come only when called. We like to begin this training early because we feel it's important pups know their name but also understand saying their name doesn't necessarily mean you are calling them. (follow on training for this comes during basic obedience)
Puppy Training also includes:
Walking on a Leash
