Your dog will learn the group obedience training class curriculum’s listed below as well as any other behavioral issue you would like to address. Fearful dogs and dogs with specific fear-related behaviors are best suited for private dog training lessons. Aggressive dogs cannot come to group classes. Dog aggression management is best modified in the private dog training sessions…
Private lessons are one-on-one obedience dog training and the sessions are tailor to correct the specific behavioral problems you are having with the dog. Any dog training aggression issues towards other dogs or children will be addressed during the obedience dog training sessions. Some clients prefer not to train in their environment but want the attention of one-on-one training; so, private lessons are perfect for that scenario. Private dog obedience training lessons will also work on puppy potty training, adult dog house breaking, puppy training, and any and all behavior modification issues. Socialization with other dogs is included in the private dog training sessions. Your dog will learn to listen to you no matter what the distractions are, including having to work around other dogs. The obedience dog training will go over the basic obedience training curriculum listed below plus any other issues you would like to address. Dogs with prior obedience training will go over the intermediate curriculum if they are ready for the intermediate dog training curriculum…
Private obedience dog training will also go over behavior modifications such as house breaking older dogs, chewing, potty training puppies, inter-relationship with dogs and children, inter-relationship between dogs, socialization to their environment and change, socialization with other dogs, sounds, surfaces and fear issues… Your dog will also learn the appropriate way to meet and greet another dog on or off their territory.
Semi-private dog obedience training lessons offer the same curriculum as private lessons. When teaching a puppy obedience training or puppy house breaking, some puppies respond better in a private lesson due to all the distractions in the group obedience classes, private obedience training, group classes in your neighborhood, church, school or just a bunch of friends getting together and training their dogs. Price is $175 for each dog with preferably a 4-5 dog minimum. Lessons are held in designated areas in Metro Atlanta. The private obedience dog training will be a 6-week course with The Life of The Dog Services included. These classes are like a party since everyone will most likely know the other students, and is a great way to hold practice sessions with your group between lessons. Dogs will also get a play time at the end to help with socialization which helps to teach them appropriate ways to greet and play with other dogs.

Dog Training Desentitization.
Desensitize your dog to door bells so your dog does not get a conditioned behavior that states you hear this bell noise and someone is here for you. Some doorbell dogs are so reactive that they react to doorbells on TV. To start the desensitation process you can open your door stand with your dog in the open door ring the bell and give your dog a treat. If they start barking for now ignore it. If you draw attention to it could be satiating to your dog. Keep doing exercises daily that you ring the bell with the door open and give treats. This will help the dog stop associating the bell with guest coming over.
