Our Training Philosophy
We have been instructing obedience classes since 1982. Our classes are small for individualized attention. We accept dogs of all ages and all breeds, from puppies to adults and we believe that no dog or owner is too old to learn new tricks or behaviors! We understand the advantages and disadvantages of both positive and negative reinforcement training, and have developed a training philosophy, which incorporates both aspects. Based on establishing authority and leadership rather than dominance or intimidation, we build a positive foundation for a desirable behavior using rewards. From a behavioral perspective the answer to a well adjusted pet is self confidence and acceptance of authority. Self confidence is developed through training and socialization. All of our classes are designed to help your dog develop social skills. The interaction with other animals and people is used in a positive manner with controlled guidelines, which encourages positive experiences. Control is established by teaching the dog to accept the owner's authority when responding to commands. Control teaches the dog that it is to the dog's advantage to respond to the owner's request.

Aggressive Behavior Counseling Some problems are of a more serious nature and require the skill of a professional to establish the underlying cause and develop an effective treatment program. The most common problem is aggression. Dogs will never out grow this; and left untreated, it is self –reinforcing and will only become worse over time. Treating aggression requires a specialized expertise. The in-depth understanding of aggression requires a unique understanding. Lindesfarne has over 35 years of experience working with police departments and civilians; teaching the training and control of aggression. We will meet with you and your dog to evaluate the problem, and then recommend a course of action. This recommendation will involve behavior modification; changing the way in which the dog perceives and interacts with its surroundings. Behavior modification involves changing the way in which the family interacts with the dog, and the promotion of a more structured approach to controlling the behavior. The fee is $150 for 1 hr. Typically a 1 hour session is sufficient to give you insight into the problem, and recommendations for resolution. All information provided is strictly confidential. No information will be released without express permission of the owner.
