Dog Training in Toledo, OH

Dog training class at Glass City K9 in Toledo, Ohio.Our approach to dog training is different than other K9 training schools, so the results are different. The objective that we have is not to just train your dog, but actually, we focus on training the dog owners to train their dogs. When you understand the principles that we use, you’ll always have the ability to continue to train your pet on your own if you like.

This means that we start with the basics and take things one step at a time. You’ll notice that our training classes are personalized depending upon the behavior of your dog. And we ask a lot of questions. For example, we’ll ask about things like, what type of behavior modifications would you want to see in your dog? And, whether your canine is older or if he or she needs puppy training.

We believe that it’s important for you to understand what goals and objectives you want your pet to reach as an end result. But whatever results you want to achieve, all of our programs are designed to get results quickly – very quickly. Our canine training focuses on correcting dog behavior problems if that’s even an issue. And it’s not all work; your dog will have a lot of fun. That’s also part of the process.

We Guarantee That We Can and Will Train Your Dog

Did you know that Glass City K9 LLC is the only dog training school in Toledo, Ohio that offers a GUARANTEE for their training? And we have the same guarantee for our Puppy Training throughout the Toledo OH area. Specifically, we GUARANTEE that we will train any dog, of any breed, at any age, and even any disposition or temperament! That means even an aggressive dog with “bad behavior” or “aggressive behavior”. So even if you’ve tried to have your dog trained before, we know we can get the job done and we guarantee it.

So, what can you expect? First of all, the basic goals that are included in all of our K9 classes are “discipline” and “socialization”. It’s important that your canine gets along with you, members of your family and other dogs. The training your dog receives is “private training”. In other words, it’s one-on-one training with one of our trainers. And we also show you how to work with your K9 so you understand the proper way to use commands and training techniques, so this way, you get the best results possible.

Our canine programs vary in length from three, four, six, and eight weeks in length, depending upon your goals. This is why we start out with a Free Training Evaluation in order to understand what you want. Something else that makes us different is that our dog boarding service has a special training feature called, “Board and Tune”. This special type of dog boarding reinforces what your dog learned in the training classes. We also offer this for pups as well. This goes much further than a typical puppy boot camp because it’s a training immersion program.

Is it Ever Too Late To Start Training A Dog?

“No”, it is never too late to start training a dog. In fact, dogs can be trained at ANY age. As we like to say, “You CAN teach an old dog new tricks,” and we prove it every day. A big part of training dogs is interpreting dog behavior so there’s actually a connection and a two-way form of communication. All of our trainers have the knowledge and experience to deliver results that you and your dog will love. Our experienced dog training experts know how to work with canines of all ages, breeds, and sizes. And, “Yes,” different behaviors and temperaments. Our trained staff knows how to get long-lasting results very quickly. That’s exactly what our K9 training obedience training classes deliver – fast, effective results. In case you’re wondering, we also have Puppy Training to accommodate even young pups.

Can All Dogs be Trained?

The most common question we get is, “Can ALL dogs be trained, regardless of their “bad behavior”? And the answer is, “Yes, they can be trained!” Dog owners come in for our dog training evaluation and they often say is, “But my dog is different!” Well, every doggie is “unique” because they each have his or her own individual personality. It’s important to understand, that there are characteristics that are common to all dogs. What we do is focus on these common characteristics and then apply specific training skills and techniques This is all based upon the specific behavior of your canine. As part of our training process, we first evaluate each dog on an individual basis. We then use the right combination of techniques to deliver the best results for your dog. When you see it for yourself, it will all make sense. And it works!
