Many of us have been "dog-fortunate." [Blessed?] That's because, in the past, we had a great dog. A dog that was so in tune with the family, it was as if - no, it was - a true family member. Might have been a dog you had when you were a kid. Could have been the dog you had as a young adult, a decade or so ago.
Unfortunately, we learn that they come, bless us with their company, then go on. And we, after a while grieving...we do finally go get another pup.
Then, we find out that one pup is not the same as the previous.
We love the new pup, and we really, really want this one to work out. But, perhaps it's this dreadfully slow learning curve on potty training...or maybe it's how the new pup greets everyone by jumping all over them. Or dragging us down the street, or, well...the list goes on. But, still, we love the pup.
CityCanine can create those great behaviors in your new dog...and eliminate the bad behaviors. You will never replace your old, wonderful best friend. But you can have a new friend, and find new things that the new pup can bring to your family. New Good things.
We train with all positive methods. That doesn't mean your pup is going to be hooked on treats for the rest of her life. It isn't our intention that you have to carry a hot dog in your pocket for the next 15 years; there is a proven way to train positively, then go forward using random reinforceement, not constant bribery. We'll teach it all to your pup, then to you.
