The Science and Art of dog training

Dog Training is constantly evolving

There is both a SCIENCE  and an ART of  dog training.

The “SCIENCE” of dog training

There have been many new things learned about animal behavior, dogs in particular.

Why do dogs do what they do?

By gaining knowledge, a dog owner not only understands why, but is intuitive to the necessary changes that need to occur in order to intervene, avert and ultimately eliminate inappropriate behaviors.   As with any type of science, training techniques should be based on a core of concepts used in evaluating the personality of the dog and the needs of its owner. From this an owner can learn the direction on raising that type, breed and temperament of canine and formulate an appropriate training program to successfully train their dog and modifying its behavior.

The “ART” of dog training

The ‘art’ component develops from an ability to communicate effectively to your dog.  It looks a bit like magic when you see it transform a dog from an obnoxious liability to a calm, controllable and loving companion. The competent handler’s ability to get his ‘information’ across to the dog is the ‘magic’ part.

The dance between Handler and dog

To an untrained eye, dog training looks easy as you watch the ‘dance’ between handler and dog. What  actually is occurring are the skills and knowledge taught to the handler.  And the handler applying this information correctly.


 So how do you achieve this?  Acme Canine has taken the skills and knowledge amassed over many years and many dogs, and integrated them into a down to earth, common sense, easy to follow set of handouts and videos to assist you. Not just with puppies, but adult dogs too. The dangerous ones and the easy ones.

You will have our trainers’ skills and education at your finger tips to help answer questions and demonstrate proper dog handling.
