Grace Jones – German Shorthaired Pointer Residency Puppy Training
Hello, this is Grace Jones. Grace Jones is a five month old German Shorthaired puppy from Winston-Salem, NC. Grace Jones visited us for our puppy board and training program.
The timing for Grace to learn is almost perfect. She is young enough that you can prevent some existing bad behaviors to develop. And, she is old enough to understand what we as owners want and what we do not want. As owners, we have to motivate her in a consistent, positive manner so that she wants to learn. In those instances, that she does not want to obey, she must understand she has to as we are the Leaders of the Pack.
German Shorthaired Pointers are smart dogs. They are hunting dogs that can really hunt anything that you want to hunt. They will run and run all day long. They develop strong bonds with their leaders so they should be socialized early to love and accept everyone. Grace Jones is the epitome of the breed.
In our puppy residency training program here in Winston-Salem, we practice on leash obedience with verbal and hand signals. We work both inside and out. And we try to meld our clients into real life training. They are with me with my pack. They are with me when I am in the office, watching television or reading a book. By doing this they are getting a degree of real life training not available in most board and train programs. We address bad behaviors and encourage/reward good ones.
Our owner will then come out and begin to learn what we have taught. We teach the theory of pack leadership and help them adapt to what they want out of their dog.If we needed, follow-ups will be provided here at no additional charge for the life of the dog.
As happy as Grace Jones is, I guarantee she will be even happier having boundaries established by her family. Why? Because she will know where she fits in her pack. All dogs need boundaries and structure from a consistent leader.
If I can ever answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
