What is Balance Training?

Balance Training at Smith Farms uses positive reinforcement to mold the proper behavior and create the leadership methods required for the trained behaviors to continue. We use treats, toys, slip collars, prong collars, e-collars, and other trained dogs to help your dog become the best companion she can be. This allows for fast results. It also offers owners the tools they need to maintain the desired behaviors from their dogs with or without the use of treats, toys, or other positive reinforcement tools. 

When training has been completed, your dog will be able to perform the techniques with little to no-correction needed. Once your dog graduates you will have a one-hour session with our dog trainer to teach you the training methods. Your leadership and comfort with these commands will help both you and your pet succeed after our training is complete. 

Dog training experts at Smith Farms will also be available for another one-hour training session for you at our location within the next two weeks to reinforce the methods initially taught to both you and your dog. After that, we are available for assistance in the future if any needs come up related to the trained behaviors

Disclaimer

To make any dog training program successful, the owner must commit to follow through for the rest of the dog’s life.

This means, after being briefed on what commands/behaviors the dog has learned and how to implement them, it is up to the owner to maintain those behaviors consistently in everyday life.  As you help your dog acclimate to any environment (and not just the environments they were exposed to while in their training program) behaviors will be reinforced and skills strengthened.

Because dogs learn at different rates and part of their success depends also on the owner’s commitment, (it is ultimately up to the owner to continue implementing the training as to maintain all the work done in their dog’s training program), no dog training guarantees can be made. However, we are always a phone call away for follow up questions and to provide assistance for help in generalizing the behaviors taught! As well as can do any follow up lessons as necessary!

Requirements

Any potential dog that would like to train at Smith Farms must complete a free overnight evaluation. Once a dog has entered the training program owners must wait to visit their dog until they have graduated as to not interrupt the training focus. Please bring enough of their dog food for their entire stay.

Payment

To reserve a training spot, Smith Farms requires a 50% non-refundable deposit made at the time of the reservation. The other 50% is due at the time of pick up.
