Fast In-Home Dog Training In Clovis

Welcome to Way of a Dog in Clovis California.

My name is Joe Ozier and I grew up calling Fresno my home.  However, my dog training business, Way of a Dog, has provided basic dog training for the people of Clovis as well as many dog owners from around the Central Valley, since May of 2011. Like Fresno, Clovis also has dogs that are also not being and acting like good family citizens.

My reason for going to and working with your dog in your own home is because it’s where the dog lives! The difference between taking classes outside of the home and inside of the home is clearly explained by this Professional Dog behaviorist:

“Sadly, so many obedience training classes aren’t meeting the needs of the pet dog owner who simply wants a dog that is a pleasant companion and that behaves at home.  Well intended owners sign up for classes at their local obedience school, only to get instruction on heeling and figure 8s. But what most dog owners want is a dog that will come when called and that will not jump on everyone who enters the house.”  Mary R. Burch Ph.D.

It is So True With Many Dogs in Our Homes

I get calls all the time to go into peoples homes regarding dogs jumping on guests; or growling and scaring guests & family away; or jumping on and knocking over the elderly and small children.  Doorbells are a big event in many dog owners homes. It’s how dogs and owners react to them determine if it’s a pass or fail.  To me, it just gives me a clearer sense of the type of energy going on in the home. Here’s a link to my most common types of In-Home House Calls.

My Goal Is to Change Your Dogs Attitude and to Build It’s Learning Capacity

Like us humans, dogs historically put up resistance to humans attempts to change them.  They can be suspicious and wary of our new attempts to change them again. Most of all dogs, either running loose or caged in America, come from failed training attempts. Someone out there thought they could understand a dog and get it to listen in no time flat, only to became quickly disappointed and disillusioned by their frustrated and uninformed attempts.

Many People Do Just Want Their Dogs to Listen

The purpose of my Clovis and Fresno dog training business is to help you and your dog in your own home.  I want you to get back on the right track of communication and cooperation with your misbehaving pet. Most people just want their dog to not hurt their guests and to have simple manners acceptable that the owners can tolerate.

Way of a Dog Provides the Best Fresno/Clovis Dog Training!

Here are some interesting facts about early Clovis, Ca and what is now referred to as Old Town Clovis.

“The town of Clovis was pioneered by the vision of Marcus Pollasky who along with a group of prominent Fresnans raised over $100,000 in 1891 to build a single freight stop along the San Joaquin Valley Railroad, opening a gateway from the San Joaquin Valley to the east”
