What is LifeStyle Training?

Many people find dog training boring.  I am one of them, and I do it for a living!  That is why I needed to figure out how to make it more enjoyable for owners and easy for the puppies to understand.  I was one of those who used to carry around a clicker and strap on the treat bag.  I planned my sessions, thought about ways to engage the dogs, and then it hit me.  All this wasn’t real life.  People are not going to do this.  They don’t want to do this…I didn’t want to do it!

LifeStyle Training Was Born!

Puppies (and dogs) do not generalize behaviors.  Therefore they must be taught in situations.  Just because your dog will sit inside, he may not outside until he fully understands what “sit” means.  So with this comes training your puppy with your routines.  When you wash your dinner dishes, ask your dog to sit and wait.  You wash dishes, your dog gets trained.  Say your sitting on the couch and another family member is on the loveseat, call the puppy back and forth to “here”.  You open the door to go outside for the mail, you ask your puppy to wait.  What you are doing is teaching your puppy in life situations, not in preplanned situations.  This is why many puppies that go to puppy class will do everything right in class, but when they come home they forget all they learned. Training your puppy in your environment in your daily routine, is the only way a puppy will truly understand what you are asking.
