Solving Problems With Dog Obedience Training

Every dog and handler team is unique, but the basic training principles remain similar. At Duffy’s Bed and Biscuit, we can help your dog overcome tendencies such as:

  • Incessant barking
  • Jumping onto people
  • Pulling hard on the leash during walks
  • Hyperactivity or high energy behavior
  • Not coming to you when called
  • Running out of opened doors

Through our programs such as Private Training Sessions, Play & Learn Day Training, Boarding Training Programs, and Preschool for Puppies – we can help your dog become more calm and comfortable within the world around them.

Your dog can and will learn to behave appropriately, display good dog manners, walk calmly by your side, and come to you every time you call them. Dogs can behave even with a multitude of tempting distractions around them.

Private Dog Training Sessions

Different approaches work for different dogs. No one method works for all dogs, but the approach taken to create a fulfilled dog and owner partnership are the same: mutual respect for one another and fairness. Owner and Training Director, Patrick Duff, has years of experience in disciplined dog training, calm dog coaching, and a lot of patience. He continues to successfully help dogs and their owners reach important milestones together.

Training sessions can include “one-on-one” time between the trainer and your dog. This type of instruction helps you and your dog develop the skills necessary in an urban environment that is full of distractions, to a country setting that is full of wildlife and smells. Lesson programs are customized to address your dog’s individual temperament and history.

At Duffy’s Bed and Biscuit, we train all dogs for ‘off leash’ obedience as well as “on leash”. This ensures that dog owners can maintain control of their dog at dog parks, in the city, at public events, as well as at home.

If you have been struggling with your dog’s behavior problems such as shyness, aggression, separation anxiety, or your dog ignores your commands; then a training session at Duffy’s Bed and Biscuit is right for you.

Please review our background information on our website, and read our testimonial page for success stories of others just like you and your dog.

Maybe other training sessions with a different trainer did not seem to work for your dog. Perhaps your dog has shown aggression or bit someone and you need help. Before you make any final decision regarding your dog’s future, please contact us. We have been the solution for other people facing similar difficult choices.

“Play & Learn Day” Dog Training

Duffy’s Bed and Biscuit offers “Play & Learn Day” Dog Training Programs. “Play & Learn Day” offers many benefits for busy dog owners. Your dog will come to our Dog Daycare each morning and leave with you each night. The benefit of “Play & Learn Day” is that your dog will learn quicker and more effectively through working “one-on-one” with a professional dog trainer.

Lesson plans are customized to address your dog’s individual temperament and history. At Duffy’s Bed and Biscuit, we train all dogs for “off leash” obedience as well as “on leash”.

We include session lessons for the dog owner as well, in order to share instructions on how to maintain the wonderful new skills your dog has learned. When dog and owner are in synch with the training program, each will possess a much clearer understanding of one another’s expectations.
