At Cahaba Beach Dog Park, we believe that successful training comes from effective communication between the trainer and the dog. Training should be fun for both the dog and the person training him. Through this training, wonderful relationships are developed between the humans and dogs involved and lives of all involved are enriched.
We embrace the power of positive reinforcement training. Based on the science of behavioral psychology, positive reinforcement training offers an effective, safe, and humane way to teach your dog any behavior that he is physically and mentally capable of doing. We focus on what we “want” from our dogs rather that what we don’t want. Proven long term training success and enhanced relationships are the bonuses seen when using these methods. Verbal threats, intimidation techniques, and physical corrections are not part of training at Cahaba Beach Dog Park.
Our trainers approach to dog training is not only based upon the dog learning what the human wants, but the human learning what the dog wants as well. Just as we deserve respect for our nature as humans, dogs deserve respect for their nature as dogs as well. The purest, and healthiest, form of obedience is not through a dog deferring to a authority figure; but rather, dog and owner having a mutual understanding of one another.
We offer a variety of training solutions to meet your training challenges and schedule. Our group classes have limited enrollment so that we can offer lots of individual attention. Private training sessions allow you to work one on one with expert instructors as you learn the skills needed to train your own dog. Regardless of your training needs, Cahaba Beach Dog Park can help you achieve success.
