Training Gives Rewards Everyday!

Kabler School For Dogs training courses are an investment in you and your dog’s relationship that will provide satisfying rewards everyday. When properly completed, obedience training will add significantly to the depth of your dog’s bond in your personal and family life. Imagine a dog that used to be a chronic puller, lunger, growler and barker transform into a dog who loves walking politely on the leash without pulling or reacting to passing dogs and humans– a dog who is a pleasure to take on all types of outings. Imagine raising a puppy using optimal methods that create a balanced dog with maximum personality. This is what Kabler School For Dogs accomplishes every day.

The Kabler School For Dogs Puppy Program is a private class designed for pups, from the ages of 10-20 weeks,  and their Human Guardians. Proper socialization to people, environments, and other dogs is a major focus. David will teach you and your pup reward based obedience requests and games that provide your new dog with direction. Learn how to properly house train, crate train, redirect play biting, and lots more. Creating maximum personality by providing proper guidance for the developing pup is a major emphasis of each class. It is recommended that you come armed for sessions with a notebook and pen as each class is very informative, as well as hands on. Join David and learn how to raise the perfect puppy using optimal training methods.

Training the young dog aged 5 months through 12 months is an art. This 7 month period is a critical time in your pups life and it is important to handle and guide your young dog using the right approach. In his private Yearling sessions David will share with you his unique and incredibly fun path to raising, socializing, teaching, and directing your dogs focus and natural drives. Human guardians will learn how to motivate their dog in obedience through David’s use of rewards, play, and praise. During this phase of your dogs upbringing, there is a developmental stage called ‘flight instinct’ that is critical to navigate successfully. Strategies to aid in raising the young dog properly are a focus that are practiced during classes. Canine-Human bond building activities and games are emphasized. David will give you clear homework exercises that you and your dog can practice together each day. These homework exercises are designed to keep you on what David calls ‘the training path’ during your young dogs development up to their first year.


Teaching through positive motivation is fun and rewarding for both human and dog.

For dogs who are 1 year of age or older, David offers private training courses in On Lead ond Off Lead obedience. These courses begin at the Kabler School For Dogs studio and training field. As your dogs obedience training and socialization skills grow- sessions will be held at local parks, around town, in your home, and in requested locations. This approach allows for each dog to learn in a low distraction setting and graduate to advanced real world locations when they are ready. It is important to train away from home at the Kabler training studio so your dog can successfully work around higher levels of distraction and be exposed to new socialization experiences. Private sessions allow your dog to succeed faster with individualized training methods. David’s experience with different breeds and personality types allow him to train Mrs. Smith’s Dachshund much differently than Joe’s Boxer– and David specializes in solving tough and complex behavioral issues. Training is a journey that you take with your four legged best friend that deepens the Canine-Human bond.
