Aloha, Welcome to Pro-Dog Hawaii. As a licensed dog trainer and member of the Association of Pet
Dog Trainers (APDT), I constantly strive to provide the finest possible
dog training for your dog. I am located in Honolulu, Hawaii. Please call (808) 988-6596.
In October 2013, Terry Ryan will be teaching chicken training workshops on Oahu. It's a great way for dog training enthusiasts to hone their skills. Click here for details.
I offer Puppy Training starting with puppies 8 weeks old, geared to "nip problems in the bud." As the classes are conducted in safe areas there is no danger of getting Parvo or Distemper. These classes are vital for the safe and critical socialization of a puppy. Levels, Games and On The Road are for puppies and dogs ready for the next level of training. For those who are committed to their dog's training but lacking the time to train, I offer Day Training services.
My Leash Lungers Anonymous class is for more aggressive dogs. Aggression is on the rise. It is due to lack of socialization and exercise, bad breeding, and impossible demands from uneducated people. Aggression is a normal and usually healthy response to threat. In class I teach you calming signals, stress signals, training and management techniques and how to re-establish limits and boundaries to help your dog refocus on you instead of anything else. I use a technique called BAT or Behavior Adjustment Training. Behavior Adjustment Training, or BAT, which uses environmental consequences to reward socially acceptable choices. In a nutshell, BAT gives the dogs a chance to learn to control their environment through peaceful means. It’s very empowering to the dog, in a good way.
BAT uses functional and bonus rewards, combined with clicker training and systematic desensitization to help dogs make better choices in an error-free way.
I also offer Service and Therapy Dog Training, as well as Canine Good Citizen testing through AKC and Therapy Dog Testing through TDI.
