Dog Training

Let PMC help strengthen the bond that you share with your pet! Scheduling time out of your busy schedule to spend with your pet “one-on-one” to work on training, helps build a more trusting relationship between you and your pet.

Not only is training important for building a respect between you and your pet, it’s important for making your pet a well-mannered part of society and teaching your pet proper socialization techniques.

Before you can have a mannerly dog, he or she needs to be a social dog. Dogs that have been properly socialized early in life usually grow up to be friendly, confident, happy dogs, that get along with everybody and everything. If your dog isn’t socialized properly he or she can become nervous, shy, aggressive and untrustworthy in social situations. Dogs can also learn socialization skills at an older age; it will only help your dog not hurt it.

Training classes at PMC address: Puppy, Adult, Basic Manners, Canine Good Citizen, Problem Behaviors, Refinement of Previously Learned Behaviors, Therapy Pet Preparation Skills
