What to Do When You Can’t Seem to Train Your Dog

Training a dog can be hard, frustrating work. Whether you are training a puppy or an older dog that is a rescue that has never been properly trained, sometimes you need a little help to get your dog to behave correctly. 

There are a lot of different methods for training dogs. Some people use the kennel method, in which the dog is put in their kennel for a time out whenever they do something undesirable. Another method for training your dog involves rewarding them for good behavior with treats. Often, if you work with your dog consistently and not just when they are misbehaving, you will be able to get them to do what you want.

However, there are some dogs that are just plain stubborn. These dogs sometimes require a firmer, more experienced hand. If you have such a dog, you are probably at your wit’s end trying to get it to listen and behave. You might be having a problem with the dog chewing things, tearing up furniture, jumping up on people, or barking incessantly. 

Whatever the case, there is help available for you. We offer behavioral training and assistance for difficult to train dogs. At our veterinary clinic, your dog will get the benefit of years of training experience, as well as an educated hand that is familiar with the best ways to train a dog. There are behavioral training classes that you can attend with your dog, or you may want to leave your dog with us to work with them one-on-one.

If you have a dog that is proving to be difficult to train on your own, contact us today for more information or to schedule your obedience class.
