Family dog in an already busy family? You are adding, or considering bringing, a new four legged family member home you have come to the right place.
Family dog in an already busy family? You are adding, or considering bringing, a new four legged family member home you have come to the right place. First dog is here to help you navigate this exciting, but often challenging time. Whether an adult rescue or a puppy, bringing home a new family member can be alot of fun (and even better with a little guidance).
Prepare yourself with great knowledge, tools, and how-to’s. You need someone to tell you that you are on the right track. And if not, what to do about it. A family dog is an opportunity for children to learn communication skills, empathy, and patience: priceless life skills that will extend to all areas of their lives. Teaching dogs is all about forming desirable habits.
I have worked with hundreds of dogs and their families in both group and private lessons settings over the past nine years. Success can be achieved, behaviour can be changed, peace can be found through a results based approach that is fun for both ends of the leash.
Andrea and First Dog have been taking My dog for walks 1-2 times per week for over 6 years now. My dog loves her and is comfortable with her. Andrea is very familiar with my dog's challenges and has supported and enhanced the training my dog has received over the years"
First Dog provides hikes and training that are definitely dog-centred, and is more than a 'service' but treats my dog as one of the family. I have seen significant positive changes in my dog and her behaviour after following Andrea's advice and guidance"
I just wanted to comment on just how awesome our training has gone with Andrea. What a difference it's made already with our 3 year old and our dog !! It was getting to be pretty desperate for us, and we feel so hopeful now. We look forward to our training sessions and have recommended you all to 2 other families with small kids and large puppies! Just can't thank you enough!
