Dog Training Encinitas

Here at Doggywood Dog Training Encinitas, we recognize how important pets are to people. We believe in the Human/animal bond and it’s importance in our lives. In this crazy, stressful world we get a lot of unconditional love from our nonhuman family. However, there are times when they just drive us crazy and we are not sure what to do to provide the calmness we desire in our lives. Doggywood can help you to achieve the enjoyment you want with your pet in an ethically humane way.

Animal training, particularly dog training has changed a lot over the last few decades. Here in Encinitas few of us need our dog to do the “Work” they were bred to do. So our dogs can get antsy and need an outlet to for their energy. Energy that can lead to unwanted behaviors. Proper training and socialization can help to facilitate their lives. But do we need to dominate or physically manhandle them. No we don’t. Science has proven that behaviors learned in a positive way travel faster to the brain than punishment based learning. When an animal gets rewarded for what you want them to do, they want to please you, and they start learning faster to figure out what you would like them to do. When they are punished, just like us, their creativity is stopped. They still don’t know what you want them to do instead and begin to build up resentment and fear form you. This can result in destructive and dangerous behaviors.

​Would you rather have a happy, confident, loving companion or a cowering, scared, worried one? Which do you believe in and which are you proud of to be apart of?

​Doggywood can help you teach your dog the basic foundations of a well-balanced animal. We know you can achieve the most success in creating the pet of your dreams by teaching them what you want them to do in a positive fashion. Using the same training methods used on exotic and possibly dangerous animals we can work together to achieve those goals. You would not want to train a polar bear using punishment. It would not go well… We want to make it fun for you and your pet. Trust us and your pet will thank you.
