Maryland Dog Training Experts

Is your dog fear aggressive? Reactive? Lacking social skills?

We know from our experience training numerous dog breeds and correcting many behavioral problems that your dog has the ability to learn – if given proper feedback!

Our trainers have utilized every method of dog training available ranging from purely positive treat training through remote collar training. Effective dog training is NOT a one-size-fits-all approach.

We have the experience and knowledge of breed behavior to tailor a training program specifically for YOUR dog either at our Gaithersburg, MD facility or in your home, one that will help ensure a higher level of learning retention, but still be rewarding for them. We want your dog to be happy and eager to learn.

Our training method is based on giving your dog immediate feedback, establishing communication and making sure your dog knows when it’s doing the right and wrong thing. Your dog needs to understand what is expected of it and once this is established it needs to be enforced with consistency. It is vital that during the training process the dog is treated fairly and in a balanced approach.

Our experience allows us to customize a training program for your dog, based on their personality, strengths and motivators, the areas of concern and home life with your family.

All of these pieces must be taken into consideration when training your dog. There is no one-size fits all approach when you’re dealing with an individual dog. We’ve dealt with dogs that were fear aggressive, dogs that were stubborn and could not be trained by other trainers and dogs that bordered on dangerously aggressive. In each case our trainer was able to successfully reform the dog and return them to the owner a happy, balanced member of the family.

Here’s what some of our clients have to say:

“My family and I are very grateful for the help of iCareK-9. We thought we were going to have to let go of our two-year old rescued Pit Bull Terrier after a bad experience with another dog. Morris’ level of understanding of “K9″ science is very impressive. Because of his help we are able to live a less stressful life.” John Rocha

“Sophie and I had three private lessons with Morris. She’s a rescued Rottie that is fearful/anxious due to abuse at the hands of a previous owner and lack of socialization. Morris came to us, worked through the problems and she is doing great now!” Carole Adams

“My family had purchased my dream dog for Christmas one year – a Groenendael. We had a bad training experience, not helped by her strong personality. I wanted to participate in a rally class with her but because of her reactivity towards other dogs the instructor would not allow us. I found Morris at iCareK-9. After working with Morris for a month I took her back to that same instructor and she could not believe the difference! Morris has helped me learn to give her clear direction and be a stable dog. After completing that rally class we went on to earn her Rally Title with 3 straight blue ribbons and an additional Award of Excellence.” R.W.
