Courses with Kyle Warren of Canine Instinct
Selecting A Dog
Choosing the right dog for you and your family is an important decision. But many people don’t consider how many factors affect their choice – and choosing the wrong dog can leave it with lifelong behavioral problems or cause it to end up in a shelter. We’ll work together as a team, looking at how and where you live, what your expectations are, and what your schedule is. We’ll compile a list of breeders, shelters and dogs. Helping people find the best canine companion is one of the most rewarding and important things I can do for you and I hope in the future occurs much more.
For owners with pups 2-4 months old. Learn how to mold the relationship between you and your pup, and provide the best environment – physical and emotional for raising him. We cover housebreaking, crate training, socialization, desensitization, the best foods and toys, puppy-owner time, and how to prepare for formal obedience training. 1-4 lessons.
The core of my training program. Includes obedience fundamentals or as I prefer to give more meaning to it— pack function, dog-owner teamwork, and problem solving. Learn how to present yourself ideally – and clearly – to your dog with a quality emotional and mechanical presentation. We work on the differences between discipline/structure, exercise and attention; tackle problems; focus on you and your dog’s mindset and behaviors. 12 or more lessons.
Advanced Handler Skills
Increase your ability to understand, communicate with, and handle your dog at a level most dog owners (and even handlers) never reach. Work on your emotional skills and learn how your own consciousness affects your dog. We work on canine micro-body language to help you more keenly and accurately read the dog’s emotional and physical reactions. We work on awareness of ourselves, our dogs and our environment. By the end of the course, your handling skills are solid, and a whole new level of handling opens up. 8 or more lessons. You and your dog must complete basics first.
Rehab Aggressive Behaviors
Aggression doesn’t have to be a tragedy. Canine Instinct has a great track record with solving and or managing even the worst canine problems. I’ve worked with hundreds of aggressive dogs, mild to extreme, centered on toy, food, territory, dominance towards other dogs, animals or humans. These dogs have a long road ahead. First we establish a positive, functional relationship. We work on the basics. Then we begin to target the negative. Every 6 – 10 lessons, we can re-evaluate if we see the canine making progress. Depending on how extreme the behaviors and the handler’s limitations 5 – 12 months is how long the stereotypical student takes to achieve our maximum results. Despite this being the case, you are only committed to a minimum of 12 lessons to start the rehab process just know that 12 lessons will most likely not get you to your highest ground.
Versatile Bird Hunting
Upland bird hunting and waterfowl search/ retrieve courses are designed for both pointers and flushers. We can combine both into one course for a versatile hunting companion. The goal is competition quality performance. Schedule depends on your goals for yourself and your dog.
Get Ready For The Baby
Introducing your new baby to your home when a dog is present can be nerve-wracking for the dog as well as the family. I’ll help you set up a positive, workable structure before the arrival, help begin the transition ahead of time, and help your family take precautions to prevent possible problems. After your baby’s arrival, we’ll make sure the adjustment is smooth and work on any issues that come up.
No matter how many miles away you live, you can still make Kyle Warren of Canine Instinct a part of you and your dog’s education. I have taught dogs and handlers out of state and coast to coast by telephone, using exercises, internet videos and my book. This way, specific problems can be pinpointed, goals reached, and any crisis handled. Situation depending, sometimes I’ll recommend working with me in tandem with another trainer that is near you.
