Behavior & Training

Pets Training
So you’ve welcomed a new puppy into your home, either as a pet for your child, or as a companion for yourself. All training partners have demonstrated their commitment to using positive reinforcement training techniques and San Diego Humane Society’s mission of promoting the humane treatment of animals, preventing cruelty to animals and providing education to enhance the human-animal bond.

To make dog training an enjoyable and fulfilling activity, our approach is positive, rewards-based, fun and effective. Many dogs learn differently based on breed, size, age, and history. This is because older dogs are more difficult to train. Dogs are always learning and these options are wonderful for keeping up on your obedience with ongoing training.

Private Training: Individualized training for problem behaviors, in your home or at the SPCA. San Diego Humane Society group classes are not meant to address serious aggression or behavior issues. We have a passion for animal behavior and for educating others on how force-free, science-based methods positively influence animal care.

As such, the general pet-owning public needs to be educated by competent and qualified specialist organizations and associations to ensure their pets live in nurturing and stable environments, and that only non-aversive training and pet care equipment is used.

Problems? A therapy dog is different from a service dog in that it reads people’s levels of stress, provides comfort, anxiety relief, and support rather than a set of task-oriented services. If your puppy is older than 12 weeks when you bring him home and he’s been eliminating in a cage (and possibly eating his waste), house training may take longer.

You will get periodic report cards about our dog’s progress, and you will meet with your trainer weekly (or as scheduled) for a Transfer of Skills session. Petsmart offers three stages of classes: puppy, intermediate and advanced. Many of the best trainers are those who have been working with dogs for many years with more experienced trainers, or who have taken many courses.

While there are no state laws regarding professional standards for dog obedience training, many registers with the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers —an organization that highlights the need for ongoing education. You have to keep it in mind that it takes dogs some time to pick ideas that seem too simple to us as humans.
