Wonder Dog Training is the Most popular in-home dog obedience training company in the Mid-South.
What Drives Us Is Clear…
We believe the greatest need of every day families with dogs is just to get back to good again.
Most families who call us brought their dog home with the high hopes of playing with a fun, cute fur ball, but as life rolled along, the frustration only grew because the dog nor the family really understand what the other is saying or thinking. Both parties WANT to understand each other, but there is a gap of confusion about how to make life work.
This is where our Dog Pros come in. We train you AND you dog in 7 basic obedience commands so that you can enjoy life with your dog again. It really is that easy.
How We Do It Is Simple…
We are often asked if we use pain or pleasure to train the dogs. This question often comes from a person who’s read one or two articles/video by some celebrity. Unfortunately, those are simplistic, false categories.
Real dog training is bit more sophisticated, which is why our master dog trainer went off to get multiple certificates from the #1 school in the nation in dog psychology, and certifies all of our trainers before they ever even handle your dog
So…our answer is that we train you and your dog by COMBINING ALL 4 QUADRANTS of operant conditioning as well as our own proprietary CRF METHOD (which is far more than just a bag of treats or a swot in the rear).
All of this seems tricky at first, but we’ll show you just how easy and fun dog training can be. We think you’re gonna love this!
CRF Method - The 3 MUSTS of Do Training
Consistency - We need you to be consistent like clockwork in your commands to your dog. No flip flopping. No sometimes saying yes and sometimes saying no. All your back and forth will only confuse the dog and ruin all that we are trying to teach you guys, ok?
Repetition - Of course, repetition is the mother of all learning. Like a steady drip of water on a rock over time, repetition makes a permanent impression. Does that make sense? To train your dog right, you can’t just rely on the weekly lesson with your trainer as one and done kind of thing. The training program will require YOU to do daily homework assignments (about 20 minutes a day) to RE-ENFORCE all that we are showing you, ok?
Family - Your dog needs all of the handlers in the house to be on the same page, otherwise, he will get one set of signals from one person and a different set of commands from someone else, only further confusing the eager little guy even further. To do this right, we need all parties learning and growing together, ok?
