Beach For Dogs provides varied options of dog training services to help your pet become a well-behaved family member. Whether you have a puppy who needs to start obedience training or an adult dog with a behavioral issue, our team of skilled trainers will provide you with assistance.
Our dog training sessions are built so that your dog can learn the necessary behaviors and become well-trained. We work to find your dog's weaknesses and show you how to correct the problems. Our class sessions take advantage of our facility and real world experiences. Be prepared to take your dog out onto the streets to see how much he or she is picking up during the canine training class.
We believe that you'll be surprised and excited at the changes your dog can make when enrolled in our classes. To make dog training an enjoyable and fulfilling activity, our approach is positive, rewards-based, fun and effective. We believe in Cesar Milan and Dr. Brian Hare's Philosophy.
Cesar Millan's Philosophy
Our training philosophy and Cesar Millan's are similar. We will not only train your dog, but we will also train you to become a dog whisperer.
Millan's work focuses on handling a dog with what he calls "calm-assertive energy". He approaches dog behavior by teaching dog owners to establish their role as calm-assertive pack leaders. According to Millan, dogs have three primary needs: exercise, discipline and affection — in that order. In other words, it is the owner's responsibility to fulfill the dog's energy level through challenging exercise; then to provide clearly communicated rules, boundaries and limitations; and finally, to provide affection.
