Are You Struggling With Your Dog’s Behavior?

Does your dog “know” all her obedience commands, but she just doesn’t listen? Have you tried other training programs before and nothing works?

You need an online dog behavior coach!

Let our experienced Canine Behavior Specialists teach YOU how to get your dog’s behavior under control once and for all. Together we will turn your dog into the ultimate canine companion!

Let’s talk about your dog

Set up a consultation to talk to one of our Canine Behavior Consultants about your dog’s behavior issues and your training goals. Your Initial Consultation is completely free of charge and gives you a chance to ask all dog behavior-related questions you might have. Together we will develop a plan for your Custom, Private Dog Training program.

Watch the Free Introductory Course

This course is full of Must Know information for anyone who is looking for dog training: We have put together a comprehensive guide to help you understand why traditional dog training so often fails to deliver sustainable results, and how to effectively communicate with your dog to achieve real improvement in your dog’s behavior.

We Put You in Control

If you let someone else train your dog for you, your dog will learn to respect and listen to that trainer - and not you! All the behavior problems will come right back after the training ends.

In our program, you are the one taking the reins. Our training is about building a better relationship between you and your dog.

Your Environment

Many of your dog’s behavior issues happen in the home. So why take our dog outside of their environment to learn new habits? Through our live, interactive, online training, our trainers are able to see your dog’s every day behavior without any influence of external factors.

Re- Watch Your Training

Having trouble remembering what your trainer taught you? When you are working with Sam Ivy K9 Consultants, all of your training sessions are recorded, so you can watch them whenever you want, wherever you want.

Real Training– Real Results

Check out our different training packages! Sam Ivy K9 Consultants goes way beyond
‘sit, stay and come’ training.

As our March Breed Group series has come to an end and we have learned different characteristics of each breed group, and you might have a better understanding of some of your dogs behaviors and quirks.
....But heres the catch. Breed does not solely determine a dogs behavior or training ability!

We hear it all the time: Ive had this breed my whole life, and this dog is nothing like my other dogs. I dont know what to do! Its just how some kids are raised the exact same by the same parents, and they could not be more different.

When adding a dog to your family, you might have a checklist of things like size, grooming needs, energy level. Those are all a great start.
But the main things that need to be taken into account are:
-your personality, the dogs temperament, and how the two interact together.
-your daily lifestyle & family dynamics.
Are you a bachelor who goes out on the town often, a young family who spends their weekends active & outdoors, or an older couple who has more quiet nights in?
When adopting, try not to base your decision based solely on the dogs physical looks, breed, or which one ran right up to you.
Tell the breeder or shelter about your personality, lifestyle, and family. Think of them like a matchmaker. They can help you find the dog that is most compatible to your lifestyle.

We hope this checklist helps you find a canine companion who is a great fit for you!

If you currently have a dog, and you feel like there may be some things that could need adjustments, reach out to Sam Ivy K9! We can teach you how to best communicate with your dog and strengthen your relationship with them.

Breed Group Series: Non-Sporting Dogs

If your dog is a one-of-a-kind, cant be put into a box, they might be in the non-sporting breed group! These dogs are all very unique, so their characterstics can greatly vary from one to another.
However, they are still all canines! Which means they will communicate a bit different from humans no matter what.

Breed Group Series: Hound Dogs

Does a 10 minute morning walk turn into a 30 minute ordeal because your dog want to sniff everything?

Hound dogs are very independent dogs, who were bred to rely on their senses rather than a companion, so they can sometimes be a challenge to train!

Even though most people associate these dogs with being outdoors, they surprisingly are not very active, but once they find something on their trail that interests them, then they tap into that reserved energy, and look out!

A big part of training hound dogs is being able to reign them back in, whenever they are fixated on something. Repeating commands over and over again can waste your time, and increase frustration, because they just tune you out!
