Over 50 Years Experience
lifetime for you and your dog.
Every program is "tailor fit" to the special needs of each dog and their owner. You're assigned a qualified trainer that will help you get your dog suitable to fit your situation. We will help you learn the best methods of handling your pet plus train your dog to respond better and promptly obey. During each lesson the trainer will get response from your dog first. The trainer will then coach you in getting the same response. It will be your responsibility to work with your dog and practically apply what you've learned each day.
Housebreaking is an issue that needs to be addressed at any age. We will help you find the appropriate place for you to direct your dog; papers, box or a designated area outdoors. We will, with your assistance arrange a system to be followed that will consider the dog's holding power and your schedule.
Our obedience programs teach basic commands and hand signals on-leash as well as off-leash. Those commands include: Heel, Automatic Sit, Sit-Stay, Down-Stay, Come, a release command, respect for the word "No". In addition to the basic commands we can teach your dog your property boundaries. Off-leash obedience is a prerequisite.
Since All Breed's training is done in your home it enables us to get to the root of most of your dog's behavioral problems. We have found that most problems are legitimate survival skills on the dog's part that are acted out in inappropriate environments. An appropriate correction to these problems will be elected and alternatives suggested so instincts can be acted out in a non-destructive manner.
A common issue that All Breed has dealt with over the years has been in helping people set up systems to manage their dogs while they are at work or simply can't supervise their dog. All Breed discusses proper containment and procedures to eliminate destructiveness and a means to eventually give the dog the freedom of trust. All Breed's customers also enjoy a well-mannered dog while having guests by having the dog go to a designated area on command until released. Most guests appreciate the option of interacting with the dog. Another common issue is the dog's interaction with children especially newborns. All Breed Dog Training has developed management systems to accommodate this.

How to get Started
Before we take on a dog for training, we do an evaluation at your home to assess what program would be best suited for you and your pet. The evaluation runs approximately 45 minutes to an hour and at that time we will give you a fixed cost, let you know what your involvement will be, as well as ours. If you're interested, we are equipped to get you enrolled. Since our service is personalized, we will put you into our schedules at your convenience.
