At Denver Dog Works we pride ourselves on coming up with new and innovative ways to offer training for your dog. We have been in the Denver area for more than four years now and we have always had a great group of clients that continue to come to our training center over and over again.
But in today’s day and age of T.V. trainers and well over 200 companies and individuals offering some form of dog training in Denver, we decided to go back to our roots.
When we opened our training school in January of 2006 we had a group class almost every night of the week. This was great for pet owners to have a place to come to train their dogs in a group setting with small class sizes, a variable curriculum, and trainers that have tons of experience training just about every breed of dog.
So in the coming weeks we are exploring the possibilty of bringing nightly group classes back to Denver Dog Works.
We ask you, pet owners of Denver, is this something that may interst you?

ScienceDaily (June 9, 2011) — Dog owners often attest to their canine companion’s seeming ability to read their minds. How do dogs they learn to beg for food or behave badly primarily when we’re not looking? According to Monique Udell and her team, from the University of Florida in the US, the way that dogs come to respond to the level of people’s attentiveness tells us something about the ways dogs think and learn about human behavior. Their research, published online in Springer’s journalLearning & Behavior, suggests it is down to a combination of specific cues, context and previous experience.
Editors Notes: It’s amazing how as humans we place humanistic explanations onto our canine companions behavior. I see in my service dogs that the stronger the response to the attentive human the stronger the dogs capabilities are in being manipulated into serving their human.

The demand for canine trainers and/or kennel managers is on the increase.

Many of these work in their own neighborhood or community. Some of these opportunities can be found in the following areas:
You might choose to begin your career by working for another training facility. This would give you the benefit of sharpening your skills under the supervision of more experienced trainers. The experience that you gain from handling a myriad of dog breeds at various levels in their training is invaluable. Remember every dog is unique, by handling as many dogs as possible you increase your readiness to handle a multitude of situations.
NOTE: Be aware that many boarding, grooming, and training facilities want a handler in their employ to sign a contract that limits their ability to work independently in the geographic area that their facility is located in.
