Doggie Training

We had a dog trainer come out to the house today because the puppies are out of control. We've never had real issues in the past, but getting two young dogs to listen to you is beyond our capabilities. The trainer was very nice and knowledgeable. We worked with each puppy for about a half hour and already they are so much better. The trainer uses "clicker training" which is basically positive reinforcement and when the dog does something good you click so they understand which behavior you are rewarding.

She's going to come out and help us once a week for the next six weeks. Her rates are pretty reasonable and it is totally worth it to have well-behaved dogs that don't run amock and jump all over small children.
