Passionate. Devoted. These are words that describe K9 Basics owners Brian and Lisa Berg to a “T”. Their goal is to help dogs and owners have the best life possible together through proper training.
Dog training involves much more than teaching the animal commands like “Sit” and “Stay”. The real world brings myriad distractions, including other animals, familiar or unfamiliar humans, tempting objects or aromas, and noises. A trained dog must be able to behave regardless of the distractions around it.
When a dog is in “excitement mode” it cannot learn. At K9 Basics, we believe that keeping the dog’s attention is key. Once the dog trainer can get and keep the attention, only then can real training begin. That’s when we can tap into the dog’s intelligence. Dogs want to learn. They want to please their owners. This helps reduce conflicts between you and your dog and gives it clarity and clear direction.
Our goal in training your dog is to have it be able to perform for a longer duration of time, with distractions, off leash. Imagine the relationship you could have with your dog when you don’t have to worry about behavior issues!
Proper dog training does not mean changing the dog’s personality, energy or drive. It does mean getting control of the dog. Dogs are both social creatures and pack animals, and as such, you need to be the one who is in control, not your dog. When training your dog, we help you mark the proper behavior so that the dog will learn what is expected.
