Training

We currently work with two of our in-house trainers, Benjamin Draper and Tyler Peters, to run our obedience program at OMD.

Benjamin is a graduate from Champlain College with a degree in Psychology. He has been a dog handler for over two years and has led packs of 200+ dogs with his fellow employees. Benjamin is currently completing an apprenticeship with professional dog trainer Kevin Behan, founder of Natural Dog Training.

Benjamin’s philosophy is to create a strong rapport between handler and canine by tapping into the canine’s natural desire to hunt and utilizing that desire to turn instincts into appropriate domesticated behaviors. By tapping into the “prey drive,” owners will begin to see a new way of dog training that is fun and energetic. We will be working from the dog’s point of view in attempt to deepen our understanding of the true nature of the dog. Owners will learn the fundamental aspects of dog training, such as conversational leash work, basic commands, and behavioral theory.

This course is 4 weeks long and costs $125. The classes are held at Oh my DOG and are on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 – 7:45pm.

All Things Puppy, taught by Tyler Peters, provides an easy, one-size-fits-all approach to grasping the basics in housebreaking, crate training, leash work, socialization, and good manners. This course is appropriate for puppies 12 weeks to 8 months old and is a great way to get you and your puppy’s relationship off on the right paw through a variety of exercises and interactions.

This unique course which costs $150 features three working sessions at OMD and wraps up with an in-home visit from Tyler. The classes are held at Oh my DOG and are on Monday evenings from 6:45 – 7:45pm. The house call will be scheduled at your convenience. The first 30 minutes of each class will consist of supervised socialization and play between puppies, and the second half focusing on training and tips with puppy and owner.

Tyler’s approach is based on the connection, movement, and flow of energy between dog and owner. Drawing inspiration from Kevin Behan’s methodology of Natural Dog Training, Tyler finds that raising a puppy with this philosophy and establishing a strong connection between dog and owner yields an even-keeled and well-mannered furry member of your family for years to come.
