“I love animals!!!”

I couldn’t imagine life without dogs they bring me as much comfort as I bring to them. I treat every pooch as if they are my own.I don’t have kids so I refer to every pooch as if it were my own. I first adopted when I was 10 years old a redbone coonhound, and ever since then i’ve just enjoyed dog company. I have experience sitting, walking, and caring for animals.

About Dog Training in San Antonio, TX

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs are very adept at learning hand signals. In fact, our canine friends are quite in-tune with both body language and directions given via sign language, so to speak. Train your dog to learn a hand command by giving a verbal cue along with it and see how fast they understand the communication. Then, the command can be given without verbal instruction at all. 

Training Fun Fact #2:

Wouldn’t you rather wake up to doggy kisses instead of a noisy alarm clock? It’s entirely pawsible to train your furry companion to wake you at the same time every day. Dogs have an internal body clock that is capable of functioning just as well as the blaring alarm that alerts you to get out of bed every morning. But if you are training them to wake you up, remember they may do you the favor on weekends, too.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Dogs trained to visit hospitals have an innate sense of calm and realize the need for a patient to have a furry diversion. When canines provide therapy in a hospital setting, their presence can even help a patient’s recovery time. Is your dog a candidate? Obedience is a must, as is an easy-going demeanor when it comes to environments that include unfamiliar sounds and machinery.
