A Unique Approach to Canine Behavior and Training
When Quality Of Life With Your Companion Counts
We are about quality of life for both dog and owner. Houston’s ORIGINAL canine day care that’s rooted in training, learning games, activities, swimming and social skill building.
In 2001, our innovative approach to doggy day care began inside Houston’s largest doggy day care facility in the Mid-Town area. Realizing that many dogs were beginning to behaviorally fail out of conventional doggy day care, we were called upon for our experience and expertise as behavior and obedience professionals.
We developed an alternative program for those dogs that were highly intelligent and much more independent in their thinking to keep them social, structured, challenged and balanced. And since it worked so well, we began to offer it as an approach to preventing failures from occurring. Thus, The Thinking Dog Pack Socials, Pack Therapy and Skill Building as well as our Puppy Partners program, were born at Club Canine Where many times these services of dog day care are seen as nothing more than frivolous spoiling, we see them as a true vehicle for teaching, skill building and connecting owners with their canine companions in healthy relationships.
Ever wish you could send your dog to school to help learn and maintain some of life’s needed skills? Well we can help. While we don’t do all the work for you, we empower you with the skills necessary to lead your dog while providing a safe and structured environment in which owners can use for enrichment purposes and prevent all their hard efforts of working and training with their dogs from being washed down the drain. This keeps your dogs in contact with their day to day rules that are being employed at home as well as practicing them inside an environment that has a great level of distraction for the dogs to work through. Dependability = safety. Our setting promotes a much higher level of safety as well, given how much more the dogs are in control of themselves through their training. And when all the dogs live by the same rules, no one is confused and they don’t teach each other bad habits.
Having an established standard for you and your dog to meet defines a true level of safety and cooperativeness in your dog. Our standard is part of what sets us apart from other similar services and is consistent with withboth AKC and UKC outlines for Canine Good Citizen, CGC Advanced as well as AKC Beginner Novice level and the United Kennel Clubs Family Obedience Dog test. While ALL our instructors have achieved more advanced levels than the above mentioned, at a competitive professional level of judging both the handler and the dog, it’s what qualifies them to help you be successful with your dog. If instructors have never been professionally evaluated and judged to a standard of behavior and obedience dependability with their own dogs, can they really help teach it to YOU?
Once enrolled in The Thinking Dog Training System, we can help you maintain seamless consistency of the established standard while providing your dogs with our versions of traditional services like our Puppy Partners program, Pack Socials and Pack Behavior Therapy for those dogs who are in the process of re-learning how to be social with other dogs. Our programs help facilitate all dogs and owners to be successful and have safe, dependable and enjoyable relationships with their dogs. As well this continuity is continued in our Stay Over service. So whether your just returning from a day of work or a 2 week vacation, you’re assured that you and your dog’s training efforts have not been undone, only to further push you away from meeting your goals. Give us a call, we’d love to help you, help your dogs.
