Basic Training for Newly Adopted Dogs

Volunteer Dog Training recognizes that adopting a rescue dog is a unique experience with its’ own set of joys and challenges. We want to help adopters through those moments with positive, science based training methods.

We have created a private, in home, Basic Training course that takes into account the Rule of 3: 3 days to relax, 3 weeks to learn the routine, 3 months to feel at home. We address these stages via first focusing on the relationship between he dog and its new family, followed by learning basic cues, and capped off with learning how to feel comfortable out in the world. Because the class is 1 on 1 we have the ability to address each dog’s specific needs, thus creating a truly custom experience for the dog and adopter.
