So you want to train your dog. Where to start? The first step is to decide whether Group Training or Private Training is right for you.

CHOOSE GROUP/CLICKER TRAINING

GET STARTED

Step One: Book our Informational Dog Training Classroom session held on the first Saturday of the month at the Littleton Fire Department from 5-8 pm.

Please Note: You must attend the classroom session prior to attending any hands on Group Clicker Training with your dog. During the classroom sessions we provide a lot of great information about dogs, i.e. why does your dog act the way s/he does (good and bad), how to effectively communicate with your dog, and we will set the foundation for Clicker Training with your dog.

Step Two: You will want to book your hands-on Clicker Training sessions. These sessions are offered weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at the Littleton Fire Department from 6 to 7 pm.

Marker Training, commonly referred to as “Clicker Training”, allows you to use a clicker to “mark” (or point out) any trick or behavior you want to teach your dog. Clicker Training is a simple, fun, and highly effective technique used for teaching your dog new ‘tricks’. Remember: if it’s not something your dog would normally do without a cue, then from your dog’s perspective, it’s a trick.

Our Clicker Training Sessions specifically cover teaching you to train your dog to: sit, lie down, stay, come when called and walk a loose leash. However, you will also learn the basic principals needed to train your dog to perform just about any trick.

CHOOSE PRIVATE TRAINING

GET STARTED

Step One:  Book your FREE Initial Consultation, conveniently held in the privacy of your own home. Free consultations are available on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.

Please Note: Any private training that occurs outside of a 20 mile radius from our location will also incur travel expenses, which we will discuss with you after registration is complete. The following NH communities are within our 20 mile radius: Bethlehem, Easton, Franconia, Landaff, Lisbon, Littleton, Lyman, and Sugar Hill.

Step Two: Once you have met with us for your free initial consultation and we have discussed your canine training goals, schedule your first Private Clicker Training Session. Private sessionsare available all day on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and Wentworth Training Institute comes to you.

Although we are happy to provide private clicker training, Private Training Sessions are normally provided to allow us to help you with behavioral problems rather than teaching your dog new tricks.

We believe in the concept of teaching your dog “incompatible behaviors” to address problem behaviors from your dog. This method of addressing behavioral issues requires your dog to know some basic cues, such as “sit” and “stay”. If your dog is not proficient with the basic behaviors taught in our clicker training sessions it is recommended, but not necessary, that you attend clicker training prior to trying to address behavioral problems with your dog.
