We cover the history and natural behaviors of dogs to help owners understand how the training techniques used are effective. This helps the owners in approaching housebreaking, manners, and behavioral problems as we incorporate obedience commands. These commands include heel - sit - stay - come when called - report to front - finish and return to heel position - down - re-sit - and stand.
