Services

Redfern Canines is dedicated to providing a quality dog-related experience for owners and handlers who take their responsibility seriously.

Dog Training Classes are available using positive reinforcement methods.  Training opportunities include both Class Settings and Individualized Instruction.  Operant Conditioning (Clicker Training) helps the dog to be more actively involved in their own growth and behavior and helps to build a more wholesome long-term bond between dog and handler.  The Director of Training is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT); member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and the Harrisburg Kennel Club; a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and S.T.A.R. Puppy Evaluator -- certified by the American Kennel Club; and has been training dogs and dog owners professionally for nearly 25 years.

Individual Training and Consultation is available for owners who prefer this option.  Individual sessions are tailored to the family's needs and convenience, and may cover basic training, behavior problems or specific training roadblocks.  These sessions may be offered at the owner's home or other location by request.

Assistance Dog Training and Consultation provides training for owners who would like their dogs to assist with mobility, hearing, or other disabilities.  Services include dog selection, training in all skills and behaviors customized to the needs of the client, and consultation to address ongoing needs and challenges.

Therapy Dog Training, Evaluation and Support.  In addition to providing training and seminars to teach both dogs and owner/handlers the skills and behaviors required of Therapy Dogs, a Support Group holds regular meetings to enable owner/handlers to share their experiences and hone their skills.

Redfern Ramblers, Dog Scout Troop 171 is affiliated with Dog Scouts of America, an international organization of dogs and handlers which provides a variety of activities to help the teams grow, learn and perform community services.  Dogs earn badges (more than 75 are available) and participate in monthly activities, training sessions and recreational opportunities, in addition to community service and just plain fun.
