  Private Dog Training 101: Common Questions from Curious Dog Owners

If you own a dog, there is a possibility that you will need to have some level of dog training at some point. However, not every dog owner is comfortable with the idea of taking their dog to a facility for classes, and instead, they would prefer some level of in-home dog training. Here is a quick look at some of the most frequently asked questions about private dog training sessions.


Is in-home dog training better than training in classes?

In home dog training can be better for certain dogs and for certain canine owners for different reasons. Some dogs have issues with paying attention when they are around other people and animals or when they are in a strange place. In-home training allows the dog to be trained in an environment where they are most familiar, which can mean they can be more perceptive to training than usual.

How can the dog be properly socialized with private dog training?

Dog-to-dog socialization is always an important thing for canines, and that is naturally going to happen when you take your dog to a training center for classes. Private dog training does mean that your dog will be missing out on that level of socialization because their interactions will only be with the human trainer. However, there are steps you can take personally to help socialize your dog, such as taking it to dog parks and for frequent walks.

What are some of the advantages of in-home dog training?

In home dog training with a professional yields a number of advantages. For one, the trainer gets to see how the dog tends to behave while in its own home, which can be far different from how they behave when they are at a facility or in a strange place. Working with a private dog trainer at home also allows the trainer to implement instruction pertaining to the house itself. For example, if the dog needs to understand they cannot get on the furniture, it is easier to do this kind of training in the home.
