UP FOR A LIFETIME OF SUCCESS
At Puptagon we believe in using positive reinforcement training to create a positive, practical, relationship-focused bond that will help you and your dog become a top-notch duo!
We understand how frustrating dog behavioral issues can be for you, the owner. Our team of dedicated professional trainers can help! We have a passion for dogs and an understanding of canine behavior that will get you and your dog to your desired training goals and beyond.
We will teach your dog appropriate behavior using scientifically proven positive training methods. Then we will teach you how to implement our teachings into your household. Often there is a lack of communication between owners and their dogs. Remember, dogs don’t speak our language so it is up to us to find a way to communicate with them that they can understand.
“The trainers all have a lot of professional experiece – I think learned more in a few minutes about what motivates dogs and how they think than I ever knew beforehand.”

TIP OF THE WEEK
One of the biggest issues that we hear about on a daily basis is bad leash manners. Is your dog pulling you down the street? Putting on the brakes? Zigzagging all around and tangling you up? Check out this article on loose leash walking.
Puptagon also understands people have busy schedules so if you need some help, we are here!

Think of training as a sport – its like playing ball, dancing or playing tennis. Practice and repetition leads to better results and more positive interactions with your dog! And just like any sport, proper instruction can help get you started on the right track.
Instruction in how you move and your timing of motions and rewards make an important difference in how you can communicate to your pet. If you’re not getting good results, find someone who can instruct you on the best ways of making progress.
