Meet Daisy! Daisy is a rescued hound mix from down south, her owners decided to give us a call when they first got Daisy to help with her transition into their home. With our background in rescue dogs and experience with different canine personalities we were a perfect fit as a dog trainer in Dutchess NY for this amazing dog. Daisy also has some resource guarding which we helped with as well. Daisy was apart of our basic obedience program which is 5 weeks long and encompasses teaching her all her basic commands and then teaching her that they are not optional. Some specific goals that we had for Daisy where to help with her walks, she was a very bad puller and being a hound mix she always had her nose to the ground and did not walk nicely on the leash. Daisy also had a fascination with cars, planes, other dogs, and pretty much any animal she would come across. Not only did we restore peaceful walks for her human family but also worked on creating a calmer state of mind for Daisy so she was not always at a high level of intensity. We accomplished this by giving Daisy more exercise, this included longer walks, and teaching her the treadmill! Daisy absolutely loved the treadmill it was like she had been on it her whole entire life. The treadmill is both mentally and physically stimulating to a dog which gives them the ultimate workout. We are happy to say that we truly improved the communication between Daisy and her forever family because every dog no matter their start, behavior or any incidents deserves the chance at a long and fulfilling life.

This extremely handsome man is Chaos! Chaos is a young male Rottweiler who needed a dog trainer who knew exactly how to work and motivate this extremely powerful breed. His owners made the perfect decision to choose Backcountry K-9 Training to help train Chaos when another trainer did not want to train him previously. Knowing our background and our comfort with any dog, Chaos was enrolled in our Advanced Obedience program for 8 weeks which involves our on leash and off leash training.
As always our dog training in Dutchess County NY and all clients starts with baiting and luring. We had to teach Chaos the exact positions we wanted him in. Chaos was also getting to a very critical age in his development especially in big powerful breeds like Rottweilers which is around 10 months to 1-year-old. What happens around this age is they become more independent and grow into their behaviors. We had to be very sure we were telling Chaos what dog behaviors were acceptable and which were unacceptable. Some behaviors that were unacceptable with a dog of that size where his jumping, over-arousal, mouthing. What was the BIG need for Chaos’s family? To have him be advanced in his obedience but maintain his goofy, very friendly personality. The family had this breed for years and wanted to finally have the perfect ambassador for the breed, which is also why they chose Backcountry K-9 Training for their dog training in Wappingers Falls NY. We believe that all dogs should be friendly or at least have the ability to be social, but be controlled in social situations.
