A well-behaved, trained dog is a pleasure to own, because he can go virtually anywhere without being a risk or nuisance to others. Working with your dog not only teaches your pet how to be a happy, healthy member of the family, it also helps you learn more about your companion. Whether you are just looking for the basics or have more challenging issues, that will require intensive behavior modification through one-on-one training, I will give you the tools you need. Yourdogwill learntolookatyouforguidance,andyouwilllearnhowtosetyourdogupforsuccesswithproperguidance, rulesandconsistency. Blue Creek Canine uses proven, positive, reward-based methods to teach your dog to be a well-mannered companion. We address everyday issues such a digging, barking, jumping, uncontrolled greeting, pulling on leash, recall, self control, basic house manners, puppy foundation as well as more severe behavioral issues as reactivity and resource guarding.
As of October 2015, Blue Creek Canine is the only presenter and dog training business with Family Paws Parenting Education in Montana, adding a specialty to support new and expecting families with dogs. The ultimate goal of the organization is to increase the safety of children, the success of dogs in homes with children and decrease the number of dogs surrendered to shelters due to easily preventable problems and conflicts.
