So Why Train Your Dog?

"Correct training serves to strengthen the bond between dog and  owner,
build communication, and gain mutual respect."

The Polish Pooch Way:

We LOVE positive reinforced choice-based instinctive training!

It is superior to short sighted bribery framed training.
We  refuse to use  techniques that continuously rely on pockets full of food!

Our philosophy is simply - just like people, every dog is uniquely driven.
 Some are shy, some energetic, some are dominant, some have a history of fear, but all are social,
animals that have a natural understanding of instinctive leadership.

 Choice based dog training allows dogs to think and problem solve, while learning from the choices they make. The dog can learn as much from making a wrong choice, as they do from getting it right, because they learn what doesn’t work. For example, if your dog continuously barks at you for attention and you happily respond, you are communicating that barking in your face is an accepted and desired behavior.
We replaces the inappropriate "demand barking" with an acceptable behavior and teach the dog to work for the things he desires.
 Choice based training is used to mold a willing and eager participant because the dog has the opportunity to earn what he wants.

We will teach you how your dog learns then help you understand why they're driven that way.  

The Polished Pooch Areas of Focus:

To have a balanced dog, training must focus on these three areas
1. Obedience
2. Socialization

3. 2. Behavior Modification

 Obedience training is the teaching the traditional "come", "sit", "stay", "off", "leave-it", etc.
But owning a dog is so much more than just sit!

Socialization exposes dogs to new situations and allows skill development to cope with these experiences in a positive and confident manner. Proper socialization is valuable for dogs of all ages, not just puppies.
  This can be especially beneficial for dogs that become easily agitated or over stimulated.

Behavioral training focuses on modifying undesired behaviors and replacing them with a preferred behavior.
This is the "behind the scenes" training that typical group obedience classes can't cover.
Who cares if your dog can sit if they are dragging you down the street while out on a walk!

 Behavior modification works to resolves practical dog owning hurdles like; impluse control, how to meet a friendly stranger, demand barking, over stimulation, destruction,  potty training, or separation anxiety.



Are you really going wear a fanny pack of treats around,

  bribing your dog to behave?
