Positive, Reward Based Dog Training @ The Behavior Barn!
The Behavior Barn offers dog owners a unique opportunity to develop your dog into a well behaved family companion. Our training method is based on canine learning theory. Canine learning theory is essentially how a dog's brain works in order for them to learn. We use this information to develop an efficient way of communicating with your dog. Our classes and curriculum are based on this theory and, in turn, you get fantastic results!
What is positive, reward based training?Positive dog training methods use positive reinforcement(usually food)to encourage a dog to repeat a desired behavior. With positive reinforcement your dog will be a willing participant and you will see how quickly your dog will change it's behavior for the better. We sincerely believe a well behaved dog starts with a positive bond with its owner. That bond cannot be formed without a clear understanding of how a dog learns and what motivates them to do what you ask. Your dog will learn the necessary behaviors needed to be a well behaved, family companion. You will learn how to "talk to your dog" in a way he will understand.

Daycare is available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday's from 9:00-5:00
Puppy Playtime has been cancelled temporarily to make time for more group classes. If you enroll your puppy into the AKC STAR Puppy class, playtime is included. Or consider dropping your puppy off for some supervised playtime during our doggy daycare hours. It is crucial for all puppies to be with other dogs while they are developing. They learn valuable social skills, impulse control, boundaries and how to control their teeth. The more time your puppy spends biting and playing with other dogs, the less they will bite and jump on you.
PUPPY PLAYTIME!-Bring your puppy (under 6 months of age) to play and socialize with other puppies in a safe and supervised environment. Sessions are supervised by Rebecca, our Dog Trainer. Puppy owners can chat with Rebecca during playtime to get tips and solutions for any issues at home. Puppy Playtime is being held every Tuesday evening at 5:00. All participants must be up to date with vaccinations, including kennel cough and be on parasite prevention. $5.00 per session. Preregistration is required as space is limited.
