The Dog Pawlour Greeley Joins Complete K-9, LLC

Complete K-9Group dog training classes are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to address your dog’s training needs.  However, not all group classes are the same.  Group classes offered by Complete K-9 LLC, at The Dog Pawlour Greeley are all developed by a Certified Behavior Consultant with over 20 years of professional training experience.  All of our classes are taught using only science-based, positive, force-free, dog-friendly techniques which provide clients and their pets with a fun, effective training environment for all ages.

We pride ourselves on training curricula that focuses on training for the real world so behaviors carry-over into everyday life, creating GOOD DOGS and HAPPY PEOPLE!

What is Positive, Force-Free Training? As the field of training and behavior has progressed, research has indicated that we can achieve better results and better relationships with our dogs when we use techniques that do not involved fear, force or correction.  This means that we never use corrective collars (no choke, pinch or electronic) or techniques, ever! Positive, force-free training results in well-mannered dogs that LOVE to behave!  Here is a link for more information from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviors (AVSAB) Position Statement on Punishment for Behavior Modification.

What Tools Are Required for the Classes? 

  • Regular Collar or No-pull Harness
  • Fixed Length Leash
  • Clicker
  • Small, moist and VERY tasty treats
  • Treat Pouch Group
