VALLEJO DOG TRAINING CLUB TRAINING STATEMENT

At Vallejo Dog Training Club, we use reward based training methods that are based on the science of animal behavior.

We train without force, intimidation or pain. We use rewards like food, toys, play and praise to motivate and encourage our dogs to think and learn. We create training scenarios where dogs can learn thru their successes to earn rewards instead of training them to avoid corrections and punishment. We use collars or harnesses in classes and do not allow e-collars, choke chains or pinch/prong collars in classes.

We strive to build relationships between people and their dogs. We look for signs of fear, anxiety and stress in dogs and we train to reduce, manage and minimize that fear, anxiety and stress. We want dogs to be successful, earning rewards, staying engaged and having fun during training. We want people to become better trainers, building engagement and having fun with their dogs.

Dogs of all sizes & breeds are welcome in all of our classes and you need not be a member of the Vallejo Dog Training Club to participate. Our instructors use positive training methods that make learning fun for you and your dog and each student will receive a clicker to use during training. To ensure the best learning experience for you and your dog, we do not allow prong collars or choke chains in class.

We limit enrollment to dogs who are friendly and non reactive and require students pre-register and pre-pay for the full class session. If there are not enough dogs to hold the class your money will be refunded. Dogs who show extreme reactivity or fear will be referred to a private trainer or behaviorist for a private consult and will get a refund of their unused class fees.

We encourage you to come and observe any of our classes but please make an appointment in advance so that a volunteer will be available to answer any questions you may have. Our instructors will be available to speak to you before or after class but please remain quiet during the class session. Visitors must leave their dogs at home. Only registered students, club member dogs and service dogs are allowed into our training facility.

We would love to have you come watch any of our classes, call us to let us know you'll be coming 707-567-7027 or better yet, join us for our FREE Intro to Dog Training Class Tuesday's at 8:15p. No need to register, just come by (no dogs please) and join us for a 1 hour class that will teach pet owners how dogs learn, how to improve your communication skills and how to get started on the path to being a great dog trainer!
