Midway Dog Academy Virginia

Midway Dog Academy – The School For Dogs

At Midway Dog Academy Virginia, we understand how important it is to have a balanced, well-behaved dog especially in the Virginia area. That is why we believe that for you to fully enjoy your dog, you will need to train him or her so that he or she understands their pack dynamic in your family. Allowing your dog to have too much freedom to soon will likely lead to behavioral problems as your dog ages and reaches maturity. Giving your new dog (regardless of age) all this freedom without implementing rules and boundaries first – only confuses your dog. This is because your dog will not see you as an authoritative figure in their life and they will likely try to control or dominate you or other family members.

Understanding how dog’s work is vital to having a happy dog. Knowing that they are pack animals that need structure to grow into stable individuals as adults. A dog that does not have this is likely to try and fill that leadership role themselves since it is genetically programmed into them. Leading your dog consists of clear communication, healthy boundaries, and consistency on the owner’s part. However, many times we give too much love and affection before other very important steps like exercise or discipline. And when we do not understand how dog’s think and work – we only just confuse them.

If you would like to better understand your dog and how to can begin to communicate clearer and develop a better dynamic with your dog, then speak to one of our trainers in Virginia today. That way they can thoroughly discuss your dog with you and go over different behaviors your dog may be displaying. We even offer FREE evaluations to help you get a better idea of what is going on with your dog and to answer any additional questions you may have. Our professional dog trainer can then put together a customized dog training program tailored to your dog’s needs and based around your wants. Dog training programs should never be identical – no two dogs are alike nor should their learning experience be. Every dog is different; which is why a customized training program based on your dog is so important.
