Greywolf Animal Behavior Center
Our basic philosophy is simple: To succeed, training must be fun and challenging for both pet and owner!
We strive to make our training entertaining and rewarding, so that you will look forward to working with your pet. Our goals include giving you an understanding of how your pet thinks and feels. Through this approach we foster both learning and a lifelong bond for the happiness and fulfillment of you and your pet!
Come learn with us!
All activities are held in our safe, secure, matted (soft flooring!) facility. We also have a large fenced training yard.
Learning begins the minute you meet your new pup. Get them off to a great start. Classes cover socialization issues, houstraining, dominance and submission, separation issues, barking, chewing, and any other topic that is important to you. Learn how to communicate with your new puppy on his or her level. We will help you understand the world from your puppy's point of view.
Courteous K9 Basics
Through positive reward based training, we will cover everything you need to develop a well-mannered best friend. We cover: sit, down, stand, stay, walking on a lead, heeling, recall (come) and so much more! We help you understand how dogs think so you can develop a positive relationship with your pet. PLUS, we will cover problems inlcuding barking, jumping up, chewing, digging and socialization basics with people and other animals.
Courteous K9 Advanced
For those dogs that have completed K9 basics or a similar basic obedience class. Build on your previous training, plus work toward off-leash in our safe, fully contained facility.
We use a variety of games that are fun for both dogs and owners to polish your dog's behavior and your training skills.
