Dogs should be three months or older to join our dog training group classes. Bitches in season are not permitted in class. Do not feed the dog directly before class. Please see that the dog is well exercised beforehand. When entering and leaving the building, and in the hall, keep the dog away from walls and pillars. Do not let the dog soil the grounds. Watch your dog to prevent mistakes. If several members of the family (children included) will be handling the animal, we encourage that they all attend our classes at no extra charge. We encourage our past students to return for quarterly refreshers and corrections, also at no additional fee. Upon completion of our obedience course, you may repeat any lesson you feel your dog has not mastered to your satisfaction. All you have to do is call us at 941-2178, and we will tell you the date on which the particular lesson you are interested in will be held. No additional charge. If, for any reason, you wish to repeat the complete course, you may do so – also without an additional fee.
Your dog loves you and will work- for your praise. Whatever form it takes, positive reinforcement is the key to our training method. The effect of punishment on any animal is to make him hate or fear you. Besides the emphasis on positive reinforcement, our training technique stresses operant conditioning. The truth about the classes you will be attending is that they are designed more to train you than your pet. The classroom is a poor environment to train the animal, with twin distractions of people and other dogs to take its mind off the work. However, once you have been shown the proper method of handling your pet, the real dog training that follows will be on a one-to-one basis.
Classes are held weekly, commence promptly and are of 90 minutes duration. Please be on time. Rushing in gets your dog excited and also disturbs those already working. Weekly classes are supported by halfhour per day of home exercise.

“Our biggest problems were as simple as pulling on the leash or jumping up when we walked in the door. This became very frustrating. Training on our own was definitely not working so we had to turn to a personal trainer in the area. Gaby really made us understand what we were doing wrong. A fresh set of eyes can often help you see what you been missing in your training.”
“I took Gaby’s group training in order for my young pup to gain socialization skills which was our number one priority. Now I have a much better handle on my dog without struggle. We can even go for walks and meet other dogs; no more insecurities.”
“Our dog developed a serious behavior problem a few months after we adopted him. He starting guarding certain items such as food bowls, and he was getting aggressive when playing or even to cut his nails. We started to think we were in over our heads. The goal was to find a professional trainer who could not only fix the problem but to manage and prevent serious problems in the future.”
“After the new addition to our family, Rex was not dealing with the changes in the household very well. By attending the classes, we were able to understand why he was acting in strange manners. He is now very loving towards the baby, they are inseparable.”
“When we decided to go on vacation we had no idea what to do with our Penny-Lane. None of our friends or family were able to help. We were stuck and pressured for time. A friend recommended looking into Gaby’s dog boarding. The timing could not have been better. PL was well behaved and was very well taken care of.”
“I took my dog to boarding when I had to book a last minute business trip. I hate to leave my buddy but I had no one to take him in so late. I had such a good experience, I would do it again if the occasion were to present itself.”
