Letter from the Founder:
Welcome to Norton Dog Training where dog training is our life. Whatever your desires and goals are for you and your dog, we can help you get there with our training programs designed by an experienced professional dog trainer.
Norton Dog Training uses Positive Reinforcement / Praise training; This method of training sets you apart as the pack leader while gaining the dog’s trust and respect as opposed to exploiting the dogs desire for a treat or toy.
Obedience is the foundation of an amazing family dog. So many people get a dog and then realize what they have gotten themselves into. The dog begins to take over their house little by little. As hard as we try our dog just won’t quit doing the things that are driving us crazy. Pulling on the leash, Jumping up, barking, fighting for the door, bolting, etc. and if it is a puppy it can be even worse. You really love your dog but the stress of having them in your life is sometimes just too much!
Many people wish they could take their dog to the park but feel they can’t. “No way could I take my dog to the park” they say. “My dog would bark at every other dog, pull me around the park and act like a maniac.” It is a catch 22. If you take your dog out he or she is out of control, so you don’t. If you do not take your dog out, he or she will be out of control when you do because it doesn’t happen often enough.
How do we fix it? We teach our dog new habits through persistent and consistent obedience training starting right away. Soon, these teachings will be the new norm. After you have instilled these new habits and opened the lines of communication, you and your dog will be on a path to a great future. Anything is possible once you have learned to communicate with your dog through solid obedience training.
Obedience is also the foundation of any good performance dog. Whether your dog is going to be trained for Service, Hunting, Derby, Agility, Confirmation or any other competitive arena, solid obedience is the first step to controlling your new champion.
So regardless of what your end goal is with your furry friend. It all starts with obedience. Obedience starts at Norton Dog Training.
