Too Low Too Slow-By The Good Dog Training And Rehabilitation

By Eric Smith on Dec 01, 2018 in in Tips & Tricks

Once again, a great piece of writing and advice from our friends at The Good Dog Training and Rehabilitation.

I know this sounds a bit simplistic, but when it comes to dealing with reactivity issues in your dog, I see two super common issues with owners: they move too slow to correct, and when they do correct they’re often at too low of an intensity for it to be effective.


Remember To Breathe

By Eric Smith on Dec 01, 2018 in in Tips & Tricks

So often we get tense and nervous and we can’t relax (if you know those lyrics then you are of my generation and I applaud you for the obscure reference) but it’s true.  We forget to breathe.  I’ve seen it in so many things throughout life…skiing, working out, interviews, golf…the list is long and of course one of the big ones these days is with our own dogs…we forget to breathe for all sorts of reasons.

Would highly recommend for anyone who takes living with/caring for their dog seriously. They worked with my dog for three weeks and I started seeing results pretty quickly. They were great about communicating with me and making sure I understood the strategies they implemented during the training so I could continue to work successfully with my dog at home...

Dear K-Nine Clients,

We have closed the training facility to private lessons temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, we are still open and doing business online and off-site. The changes surrounding this public health situation have come at us all very rapidly and we are doing our best to adapt and overcome the challenges we are all facing. We wish to thank you in advance for your patience with us as we work to re-schedule and switch our business model to one that practices Social Distancing and takes advantage of self-quarantine. So, for the time being, all in-person transfer sessions and 1 on 1 appointments are going to be held via Zoom.

We are going to be offering some new services that should accommodate many of your other needs. See below for details. As always, you are free to call, Instant Message, Text or email us with any questions, for help you may need with your dog. Please keep an eye on your email for updates and details on how to access our services.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration and look forward to being able to continue to serve you.

With much gratitude ~ Eric
