[Company Name]’s Products/Services
We offer three types of dog training services.
Puppy training: This is a service offered to those who just adopted a new puppy. Training includes potty training, socialization with other pups, getting used to human touch, and learning to be calm.
Trick training: This is a more specialized service depending on the tricks and commands that our clients want their dogs to learn. These commands can be as simple as learning to sit or stay or be more fun such as rolling over or shaking hands.
Behavioral training: Not all dogs immediately behave well. This is especially true when dogs are adopted from shelters and have had negative prior living experiences These experiences can cause them to be extremely aggressive or overlay anxious. Behavioral training teaches dogs to respond more positively to humans and other pets. Though most of these services are private to address specific concerns, we also offer group classes that help dogs become positively socialized with other canines.
