Dog Training

Puppies and adult dogs can benefit greatly from dog training at Care Pet Hospital and Resort }. Many owners struggle with teaching their dog good behaviors and basic commands, like sit, stay and heel, and preventing unwanted behaviors, like begging for table scraps and laying on the furniture. Our practice offers puppy and adult dog training services so that you and your dog can learn and grow together.

Benefits of Dog Training

Dog training provides both you and your dog with lifelong benefits. During the training process, your dog will learn how to behave around other animals and humans. He or she will become better socialized. You and your dog will form a closer bond, and you’ll both be much happier in the short and long-term.

  • Help you and your dog understand each other
  • Helps keep your dog safe
  • Learn how to correct unwanted behaviors
  • Teach your dog basic commands, like sit, stay and heel

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

Trainer giving a command to dog

Care Pet Hospital and Resort utilizes positive reinforcement dog training. This type of training is great for all ages, breeds and sizes of dogs because it rewards your dog every time he or she does something correctly. For example, if you tell your dog to sit and he or she sits, you then shower praise and affection on your dog and/or give them a treat, which reinforces the behavior and helps with long-term consistency. This type of training can help with correcting unwanted behaviors and instilling obedience so that you can reach your training goals.

Dog Training in Jacksonville

Care Pet Hospital and Resort offers training for dogs and puppies in a safe, loving environment. During each class, we will teach you tips and tricks for helping your dog understand what to do and how to behave when you give a specific command. When your dog performs the task correctly, we encourage you to either shower your pet with praise or offer a treat. In the beginning, we find that treats help reinforce positive behavior, but as your dog learns more and becomes more consistent, showering praise and affection helps your dog learn how to please you.

    I am you local petgroomer at this location Thursday thou Saturday

    Debra L.

    I needed to take my dog to the vet while I am visiting Jacksonville for a week. I fully expected to get hosed on the bill, but they gave me a first-time discount and kept that bill down to $40. They also got me right in. I am so grateful I found this place and highly recommend Dr. G and her sidekick, Dexter. This is a wonderful place to take your pet.

    It went well, I needed kitty for the day and I felt assured my pet was well cared for. Gentle, caring pet tech was really helpful.
