What Behaviors Do We Train?

Basic dog obedience training is the foundation of any well-behaved dog and includes things like; sit, down, stay and walking on loose leash training. However, there are many more commands that will serve to solve problems, make your pet more comfortable in various situations and allow you to strengthen the communication and trust between your dog and your family. These include behaviors like place, proper greetings, touch and more. And lastly, there are behaviors that are habitual and need to be eliminated or controlled such as barking, jumping, chewing, mouthing, etc. Meadowlake teaches all these behaviors and more and will customize your pet’s stay by prioritizing which of them are most important to you. And even more importantly, we will teach pets how to remain consistent during times of distraction or when distance or duration is involved. This type of comprehensive dog training geared towards your goals is what will lead to long-term success. Meadowlake will be there every step of the way!

What About Puppy Training?

It is never too early to start puppy training! Puppies can start training as early as 12 weeks old. Our programs are customized so any training path you take will be perfect for any age! Building a strong behavioral foundation early in life, coupled with the socialization of new people & other dogs is the best way to set your pup up for success!

While your puppy is boarding, they will be introduced to a wide array of behavioral enrichments. Their sessions will include a variety of commands such as sit, come, leash training & more. The sooner you introduce a solid foundation of training, the more confident they will be as adult dogs.

Meadowlake 288 South location did a great job training my puppy. In three weeks my 11-month-old puppy knew 10 commands and had no difficulties adjusting to the new home. The staff at the location is knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. I continue to take my puppy to group classes and feel comfortable and more knowledgeable to continue training my puppy at home.
