About Us

The Wayward Canine offers behavior modification for dogs with issues, obedience training, boarding and training, and in home boarding. Any dog, any age, any issue! Will travel, distance is not an issue in many cases.

Training I offer:
Loose leash walking
Advanced off leash obedience

Stages Of Training:
Food luring: (8 weeks - 5 months old) Useful technique when teaching new behaviors to our dogs. Using food with young puppies is a great way to start their obedience foundation and make them motivated to work and learn! With food luring, the trainers will teach your puppy basic positions such as sit, down, and heel. When the puppy is old enough, the lure will fade and the puppy should move on to leash training.

Leash Training: (5 months & Older) once a puppy has gone through the food luring foundation, he/she should have a pretty good idea of what sit, down, and heel are. Although the dog may not hold these positions too long, this is where leash training and reinforcement of these obedience behaviors come into play. First we will get your puppy comfortable with a training collar he/she responds best to, then we will overlap the behaviors that he/she knows with the leash. If the dog breaks their obedience command, we are now able to correct and reinforce what we asked of them. This is where your obedience starts to become more solid and reliable. Without this next step or training, your dog may only listen to you when you have food. This is why this next step of training is very important.

Advanced Off-Leash Training: (6 months & Older) Foundations of advanced off leash training can be started around 6 months old. For more information about this type of training, contact me.

Behavior Modifcation: Fix behavior with the use of management & obedience.
