I’ve had years of experience working closely with a wide variety of dogs, and my personal dogs are Alaskan Malamutes (notorious for being “difficult” to train). I focus on socialization and behavior training and modification to ensure dogs are happy, confident, well-adjusted members of the family. The dog training you’re probably familiar with consists of classes where, over the course of several weeks, you and your pup learn basic obedience (like sit/stay/come). Nothing wrong with that except this sort of setup doesn’t accurately represent real life! When issues arise in the home like potty accidents, separation anxiety or excessive barking, you haven’t learned what to do and your dog hasn’t learned what’s expected of him in real life circumstances. That’s where Sura Dog Training comes in. Whatever breed of dog you have, however difficult the issue may seem, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Let me make a difference for you and your dog.
