One of the most experienced and trusted dog trainer's serving Burlington today, Mark McConnell first turned professional dog training on its furry ear in 1994 by replacing the traditional dog obedience format with his finely tuned and personalized Lifestyle Process.
"Truly effective dog training for the family pet owner is rarely achieved through performance group dynamic dog obedience. Obedience classes retain the earmarks of the sport of dog obedience. Obedience for mass consumption was founded by kennel clubs to essentially keep the lights on. Fast forward to today and the same format is largely regurgitated by the likes of Petsmart.
Dog training worth paying for is about helping owners find ways to develop habits in their dogs that support the ability to be obedient. Teaching commands and word association is simple. In other words, all too many dog owners lack the captive dog audience the instruction should be focussed on. In order to successfully train your dog to fit into your life, the means must take into account all the differences in individual dogs, their people, the environment, and the lives they lead. So the very moment a dog owner signs up for a group class, they've eliminated themselves as an individual and the biggest part of their key to success. In essence, dog training is best thought of as "dog raising". Like children, the abc's and 123's learned in school are only a fraction of what helps us to successfully navigate the bigger world and all its diversity." - Mark McConnell, DogsUnlimited Dog Training & Behaviour Professional
