Hopefully this knowledge is something you will never need, but, if you ever do …. it could save your dog’s life.

Meet Cheeky Dog Obedience Training

QuinnSeems like a funny name for Dog Training business doesn’t it ? Well, most dogs start out not knowing or understanding what we are asking them to do and we assume that they are being stubborn or “cheeky” ! In reality, we don’t speak dog and they don’t speak people. So, we need to find a common way to communicate. Since, we provide the shelter, the food and the care, we get to decide how that communication is going to be. If we can communicate with fairness, a gentle touch, positive rewards, a kind voice and fun, we will have the foundation for a loving, relationship with our dog.

I was blessed with a Border Collie puppy a couple of years ago who has taught me more than any other dog or person in my life. I call him my Cheeky Monkey because he is so much fun and always has a smile on his face in everything he does because he was raised with love and positive rewards. He goes everywhere, does everything, will try anything and never knows he is blind. He loves life – as all dogs should.

So, Cheeky Dog Obedience is built on the simple principle that dogs are intelligent, want to please, need to understand what we are asking, need to be rewarded for the behavior we want and not be rewarded for the behavior we don’t. It is our responsibility to ensure the training is fair, positive and fun ! I have found that dogs learn much faster, if they are trained with fun ! (Kind of like kids, I am told)

I’m Marilee Cole and I  teach basic dog obedience and the classes are active and positive. The handlers must have a cheerleader attitude for their dogs and be looking forward to a true partnership. I look forward to meeting you soon !
