With kennel training programs you generally do not participate in the program. With group training programs your dog’s behavior problems are generally not addressed. Your dog is not going to be in the environment in which they live in with all of the distractions that surround your dog’s lifestyle. I feel it is very important for you and your dog to be comfortable in the surroundings in which you are trained. As your dogs owner you will need to know how to properly give the commands and know what to expect from your dog. My training programs will train you and your dog.
