Bringing a New Family Member into the Home.

Are you really debating whether or not to get that first dog for your home?  Have you forgotten how much your dog meant to you as a kid?  Maybe you were never lucky enough to have a 4-legged friend when you were growing up.  Don’t do the same thing to your children.  Give them the unbridled joy that a dog brings to their childhood, adolescence, and beyond.

Surely, you have heard the benefits of having a dog or two in your home.  A great dog is not only a great friend, but also a guardian, a playmate, and a teacher…yes, they teach us how to care for another life!  It has also been proven that they promote better physical, emotional, and mental health for your entire family.

Not so fast!  Having a dog without having a licensed trainer to call on is like buying a car with faulty brakes.  Without consistent humane training for a short period of time you have up to 15 years of dysfunctional behavior.  Don’t hesitate.  Make the move and call Dennis Danskin…Las Vegas’ best in home dog trainer for a consultation at (702) 327-4744.

Humane Dog Training.

Your beautiful new four-legged family member is now an integral part of your household.  Think about your dog’s reinforcement as you thought about your own when you were a child.  Did you respond better to your parents when they gave you positive or negative reinforcement?  Think about it…you know the answer.

Positive reinforcement as it pertains to your new 4-legged “child” begins with praise.  They are more likely to repeat good behavior based on how you respond to it.  As with most things, timing is vital.  Rewards need to be instantaneous.  They don’t understand complete sentences so keep it simple (KISS).

As with most issues in our lives, hiring a professional is always the right answer.  You don’t fix your own plumbing, repair your own car, or represent yourself in court.  You hire a pro.  In the Las Vegas area the humane dog training professional is Dennis Danskin.  When you hire Dennis you have another “new best friend”.  Call him today for an in-home consultation at (702) 327-4744.
