Consistency and repetition are the cornerstones of successful dog training so why lose precious practice time during the day?
Als Allan is a graduate of the Victoria Stilwell Dog Training Academy and delighted to share with Nantucket her positive reinforcement training methods.
In addition to private training sessions, we offer a training package that includes a daily training session with your pup or new dog while you’re at work.
Perhaps you’ve started some training but your pup still needs a little one on one. Girl Friday can help train your dog while you’re at work or even taking a vacation.
Take advantage of our unique Day Training package which includes a private consult + 10 training visits (with daily notes and a weekly progress update).
Dogs don’t have to like everyone and everything. Just because your dog has definite preferences doesn’t mean he has to be kept alone at home. For some dogs, carefully measured exposure to new experiences and people paired with positive associations may mean he is introduced to wonderful new adventures. Training walks with Girl Friday ACK allow you to relax knowing that your furry friend has a supervised opportunity to get out and about while receiving the structure and guidance he or she may still need.
The first months of a young dog’s life are so important to their healthy development but you can relax knowing that Girl Friday ACK is here to help when you can’t be there. Science has proven that aversive training techniques are unnecessary and often counterproductive and that’s why we will only practice positive reinforcement based training methods.
For young dogs with still-forming growth plates more exercise isn’t necessarily the best way to burn off youthful energy. Mental stimulation can be just as good a work out but should help prevent expensive injuries and physical conditions from developing.
Older dogs meanwhile have their own specific needs. Gentle exercise and stretching should help with their mobility and one-on-one, unrushed attention means they receive the personalized care our loyal companions deserve.
Girl Friday ACK customizes all pet care to the individual pet but our walking services include a potty break, brain games, any meals and of course copious amounts of tender loving care.
Private off leash hikes and small group outings are available, but only where this is appropriate. All off leash services are subject to evaluation of a dog’s disposition and recall. Our group hikes are kept intentionally small so they can be closely managed. Dogs are carefully matched, and play styles must be compatible. One bad experience can last a dog’s lifetime.
Puppy play dates are offered in a secure but enriching environment.
