Our Dog Trainers Utilize Leading Training Techniques that Resulted in a National Championship

Being a dog owner in today’s fast-paced world typically leaves you with just two options for training:

1) throw money at an outdated one-size-fits-all approach or

2) train them yourself based on conflicting online “solutions.” At Crank’s Custom Canines, we give you the third and only option you’ll ever need when it comes to dog training that works.

Our Dog trainers use a modern cognitive behavioral approach rather than an outdated, incomplete Skinnerian approach ensuring that your investment in private dog training works.

We don’t just quickly teach your dog a few tricks and call it a day, we take a holistic approach to resolving behavioral problems by developing solutions that take the instinctual motivations of the dog into account, while respecting their genetic and ethological heritage to promote a harmonious living relationship with the owner.

Breakthrough Post-Pandemic Dog-Training

Humans aren’t the only ones that have suffered adverse mental health effects at the hands of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve seen a huge rise in puppy purchases and dog adoption since the beginning of the pandemic as people have sought companions during their isolation. Social distancing has had an incredibly negative impact on many dogs, leading to a rise in fear and anxiety because they never got the opportunity to experience normal socialization and exposure during key formative periods of their lives. At Crank’s Custom Canines we are experts at proper socialization techniques that can help bring your dog out of its shell. If this sounds like your canine, and you want to help them become more social and confident contact us today!
