Continue reading the article below to learn more about the dog training process and the types of training we provide.
Types of dog training
There are many different types of training for dogs. Owners always have the opportunity to try to train their dogs without any professional assistance, but it often proves to be very difficult. This is especially the case for first-time dog owners.
Let us handle the hard part. We have a number of professional trainers who specialize in different types of training people are looking for.
Bringing home a brand new puppy is a very enjoyable experience for any person out there. They can be extremely cute at such a young age, but the proper amount of training needs to be put in sooner rather than later. Otherwise, their cuteness will start to wear off once they are misbehaving again and again.
We do as much as possible to ensure that our customers have a positive experience with their new dog. The training we work on with puppies is very basic at first, but we start to introduce some more complicated tasks later on.
Our whole system is designed as a building block for home training as well. We go over everything with owners to make sure that they know exactly what they need to work on in their free time. No matter how hard we train a puppy, owners do need to put in a good amount of work to actually see results.
Dog leash training
There are some off-leash options around the Austin area, but the majority of locations still need to have a dog on a leash. Make sure your dog is comfortable with the proper amount of training.
Nobody wants to be constantly fighting with their dog as they pull every which way. A leash should really only be needed for extreme situations. Our training is designed to make dogs more comfortable on a leash. This, in turn, makes them more well behaved as well.
After just a few weeks on earth, puppies start to have enough bladder control that they can begin potty training. This is extremely important for any person who wants to make sure that they do not come home to a smelly home.
The key to success with potty training is to reward appropriately. Some dogs grasp the concept faster than others, but we have a number of training methods for any type of breed.
Make sure to include any special circumstances at home when talking to us initially about potty training. Some dogs might have to deal with standing on an elevator, or having to walk a bit of a distance before having some land to use.
No bark training
Excessive barking can be a very frustrating experience for people to deal with if they live in a relatively urban area. Not only is it frustrating for owners, but there might be some noise complaints coming from neighbors as well.
Dogs should be able to bark in case there is something going wrong, but excessive barking can be dealt with using the right training. There are ways for them to communicate in other ways, which will come in handy. We can help control the overall noise level of the home with some methods that are not harmful to the dog. Too many other facilities focus on training that can cause a dog some harm and actually have a negative effect on them.
For those people who really like to get outside and enjoy all that Austin has to offer, agility training is something that can be very useful. We offer a lot of different courses for different breeds, and dogs are pretty great at learning tricks in a relatively short amount of time.
With agility training, owners do need to be present at times so that they can learn some of the tricks as well. Dogs can do a lot when they are near their owners, add a little bit of proper guidance is needed when on any type of agility course.back to menu ↑
The dog training process
We understand that it is very difficult at times for people to figure out exactly what type of company they want to go with during the dog training process. A dog is part of a family, and searching for a training facility is similar in a lot of ways to looking for a school for a child.
We make sure that we treat every single dog like they are one of our own. It is important to make sure that we don’t take in too many dogs at any one time, because there is always a focus on giving each dog individually attention. This speeds up the training process, and allows us to be different than the rest.back to menu ↑
Why hire our company — Fuzzy Faces Dog Training
Located conveniently in the heart of Austin, we have a special connection to the city. Everyone who works with us understands the unique lifestyle that Austin offers, and what better way to enjoy it than with a dog? The training we offer makes sure that every owner gets the most out of their relationship with a healthy, healthy dog.
All the training we offer is based on proven methods that are not only fast and easy to learn, but capable of sticking with a dog as well. By providing a strong base, additional training can be learned rather easily as well.
We offer very affordable rates for people who are on a tight budget. Some training facilities simply ask way too much money for similar lessons we offer. There are a lot of costs that go with owning a dog in general, so we try to keep our training reasonable.
Ask about our flexible hours so that training can be done on your time. There is nothing worse than having to reschedule entire days because training facilities are only open for a set amount of time. It is not a very productive use of time. We understand that people are busy, so we try to accommodate as many people as possible depending on the time that works best for them.back to menu ↑
