The Perfect Time to Train
Happy Trails Pet Center Obedience Canine Training is offered by Ray Gorniak & Rachel Hutcheson. Ray & Rachel saw that their unique approach to dog training was a natural extension of the work they already do at Happy Trails Pet Center.
Training is life enhancement for dogs. Training builds a strong and positive bond between you and your beloved dog. The more behaved your dog is, the more life experiences you will get to share with your dog. Training also is a way for you to communicate and provide structure (mental and physical stimulation) in your dog’s life. The training that we offer promotes positive dog behaviors, evaluate dogs’ dispositions and temperaments to be able to develop training plans that meet owners’ and dogs’ needs, implement appropriate training methods to enforce and maintain learned behaviors through training sessions with owners and dogs, teaching dogs to obey commands using various techniques that are best suited to each dog individually.
Obedience Commands we teach:
Wait - (waiting at a doorway or car door before entering)
Recall- (come to me, using their name as an attention getter)
Sit & Long Sit
Down & Long Down- (laying down on the ground)
Place- (A designated location your dog will stay in until released for the designated location)
Crate Training- (giving your dog the ability to go in and stay in their crate peacefully) Optional

Leave it- (used when your dog is about to engage an unwanted situation or about to grab something with their mouth and auditory stimulation)
Drop It/Out command- (used when your dog has something in its mouth/out means to back away from the item)
Release Command- (granting your dog to be released from a down, sit, wait, or place command)
