Red Bank, NJ (PRWEB) September 20, 2005
Dog training used to be considered a chore, but times have changed. Now dog owners can train their dogs using scientifically proven positive reinforcement methods that are fun, dog-friendly and effective.
As announced on the Today Show Â Dogs are the new "kids." More and more people have dogs instead of kids or care for their dogs as well as they care for their children. Much like it is considered inappropriate to physically punish kids, it is equally inappropriate, outdated and ineffective to use choke chains to give a dog correction. The dog pampering doesn't stop at dog boutiques, bakeries and daycaresÂ people also want the best education for their four legged fur-kids.
"This is a great time to be a dog. Modern training techniques are not only effective, but also fun for both ends of the leash," states owner and trainer Vyolet Michaels. "The key is to set your dog up for success. Give them legal outlets for their doggy-ness and prevent them from misbehaving until you've had the opportunity to train them to behave properly in your home."
Whether for a new puppy, fine tuning dog training or for dog behavior problems that need to be changed, Urban Dawgs can help. They offer a wide range of services including group classes, private lessons, behavior counseling, board & train, training walks and more. Their highly effective techniques are fun, dog-friendly and taught with an emphasis on trust and cooperation, so owners can truly be their dogs' best friends.
Urban Dawgs Â Red Bank Dog Training is owned and operated by husband and wife, Drayton and Vyolet Michaels, who have been working with dogs professionally for over a decade. Vyolet is a valedictorian graduate of the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers (directed by world renowned dog training expert, Jean Donaldson). The intensive program, where a class of only ten students trains with the industry's best dog trainers, has gained a reputation for being "the Harvard for dog trainers." Vyolet has also appeared on TV to discuss various dog training topics and spoke at the 2004 Seattle Pet Expo about Puppy Training and Clicker Training. She continues to study dog training and behavior independently and attend continuing education seminars throughout the country to keep current with the latest dog training methods and techniques.
