German Shepherd Training
Michael’s Pack is proud to offer German Shepherd training in New Jersey and New York. Read more about this popular dog breed and the services we offer.
German Shepherds are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States, often ranking within the top five of popularity rankings. Anyone who has spent even a little bit of time with a German Shepherd can see why they are so well loved. German Shepherds are well known for their strength, intelligence, trainability, and obedience. They are full of energy and love to play. They are a popular family dog and tend to be very protective of their owners.
Is it Hard to Train a German Shepherd?
German Shepherds are one of the easiest dog breeds to train. Even adult German Shepherds can learn very quickly, as they are uniquely intelligent and responsive to repetition training. Starting their training as a puppy is recommended, but while other dogs can be difficult to train as adults, German Shepherds are able to pick up tasks very quickly even in their older years.
Positive Reinforcement German Shepherd Training
At Michael’s Pack, we believe that positive reinforcement training is the only way to properly train an animal and that negative reinforcement techniques only serve to harm the relationship between you and your dog. We strongly believe that “Communication is Key” and that the training process should strengthen the relationship between you and your pet by building mutual respect and trust. The results we have seen over the years prove that positive reinforcement methods are the only way to get long lasting results from training.
At Home German Shepherd Training Services
At Michael’s Pack, we work with dogs and their owners to correct behavioral issues and build a strong, healthy relationship based on communication and mutual respect. The following are some of the services we offer to our New York and New Jersey clients. We are happy to address any specialized needs you may have.
The best time to train your dog is when they are a puppy, because they have no learned behaviors.
In Home Dog Training
Teaching a dog in their primary environment is beneficial to learning important behaviors.
Dog Obedience Training
We can design a specific program to target the problem areas for your new puppy or dog to get fast and lasting results through positive reinforcement.
Puppy Potty Training
We can help you train your new friend on when and where they should go to the bathroom.
Dog Barking Training
Barking is a natural response for a dog, but it is possible to train your dog to stop barking in certain situations.
We can show your puppy what is acceptable and what is off limits when it comes to chewing and/or nipping.
Fear and Anxiety
Just like in humans, fear and anxiety is very real in dogs. Our professional trainers can help your dog overcome these issues.
We can train your dog to only jump in certain situations and also teach commands to get them to stop.
The goal of this training is to teach your dog the heel command to make walks easier and more comfortable for you and your dog.
An important step in helping your dog grow up to be strong and confident among people and other dogs.
Dog Separation Anxiety
It is common for puppies and dogs to feel uncomfortable when left alone. We can help your dog feel safe and comfortable in your home.
With a new puppy or dog, crate training is a great way to start teaching them the rules of the house.
