What is a Maui Dog Training Retreat?
You are away and youâ€™d like your dog to learn a few things. You want a safe place where your dog is cared for in the same way that you care for your dog. Your dog comes to stay with me, or I come and stay with your dog, a Maui Dog Training Retreat.Â The training, playing and the best care ever commences for your dog.
Some dog trainers call this board and train. Living in Maui, with my years of experience training dogs and the fact that I take limited number of dogs, one or two at the most at a time (unless you happen to own four dogs, I take the family!), I describe what I do more as a retreat for your dog.
Maui Dog Training Philosophy
Dogs learn and think in pictures. Many times a retreat is the perfect scenario to break your dog of a bad habit. A new picture implemented repetitiously by someone else sticks with most dogs!
Dogs develop bad habits because we let them get away with a behavior repetitiously.Â We attach words they are supposed to understand as do something different, and they donâ€™t get it. They are missing logic and think and learn it a whole different way.
Dogs in my Maui Dog Training Retreat get the picture delivered with new words to go with the desired action.Â They get rewarded with play and food and praise for getting this new word attached to the action we want them to do.
For instance say your have a dog that jumps on everyone who comes to your home. Youâ€™ve tried to tell them not to do it repeatedly. But you never actually showed them what to do. This is the difference in how dogs think and learn. A paradigm shift I teach your dog, and in turn I teach you.
Iâ€™ve been training this way for years and people find it to feel like magic! It is in a way it is, and in a way its just simple dog training. I happen to have the patience and the dog language to get through to your dog in a different way.
What Happens When the Maui Dog Training Retreat is Over
I teach you how to take over. Since it is somewhat a new job description you get access to me by text or by e-mail, which sometimes turns into a phone conversation to keep you and your dog going in the right direction. I also do follow ups with you and your dog. My private clients are important to me. Your dog becomes a part of my dog family once they have joined one of my retreats.
What People Are Saying about Maui Dog Training Retreats
Sending my girl, Godiva, to JT was the single best decision I have ever made as a dog owner. Having Godiva spend time and training with JT to learn the basic, and advanced behavior training has given us the dog we have always wanted. Godiva is amazing with my 4 kids and is the most behaved, well mannered dog I have ever had.
Bella, my Lab rescue went from running after people on the golf course from our back yard and barking at our many guests and helpers in our home to the dog everyone loves to come visit. Sheâ€™s loving and well behaved.
I wanted to get away for a 3 day holiday to Lanai but I have 3 Golden Retrievers I really donâ€™t like to leave. Problem solved. Their retreat found them walking on the leash much better and one of them had a hot spot that was well cared for with natural remedies and looking much better on my return.
