We also have a training program available. The training program is very Science-Based to create a human-canine bond. Mecca Curtice has thirty years experience with dogs and also advancing her knowledge through more education and on the way to becoming a Professional Certified Dog Trainer. I am also a Professional Premium Member with Association Professional Dog Trainers. I will continue to become more knowledgeable to help owners and their dogs.
If you are interested in the training program it is $50.00 each hour and one session generally runs for one hour.
The great thing is!! The money goes back into rescue, to help more dogs.
This program started in 2018 to help Pit Bull-Type dogs become better dogs.
Our goal is to get you and your dog on the correct path.
No Flexy Leashes
No Choke Chains
No Prong Collars
Yes Positive Reinforcers
What motivates your dog?
I use training equipment that is designed for your dogs safety in mind.
Fabulous things happen when a dog gets it right. Fun, toys, food whatever the dogs wants suddenly appears. I am always aware if a dog is feeling uncomfortable in training. If a dog is showing signs of being uncomfortable, I will reassess to what they are doing to create the most empowering learning environment. I will help you determine what is the most suitable reinforcement for your dog and what they like.
There is paperwork that must be filled out and the first consultation is free. This training program is to focus on the training needs of your dog. You are involved with this training too. These are private lessons focused on you and your dog. ( In home and into real life outside).
If you live outside of the Sheboygan County, Wisconsin then I must add in mileage.
So you feel you cannot afford $20.00 then there is one other option. You can become a volunteer for Mecca's Pit Bull Rescue and get discounted. But you must follow through with your volunteer agreement.

What have I studied you may ask? I will give a briefing on this.
Barking is a communication each bark has a sound and a meaning. Dog's body language is very important to understand. The correct way to get a behavior from a dog. Basic Obedience and Manners and Advanced Obedience. Behavioral Problems , Impulse Control and so much more.
Helping to set up for that new puppy coming home. Yes, there is a list of things needed when getting a new puppy.
There are several types of aggression in any breed of dog. Did you know fear is also aggression. Barrier aggression and even a leash can cause this.
My studies have taken me deeper into studying and observing a dogs body language. More than I could have even dreamed of doing.
Did you know that training sessions should be kept short. My experience has shown me that 15 minutes really makes a difference. I have learned Operant Conditioning, Classical Conditioning, Positive Reinforcement, Negative Punishment, Positive Punishment and Negative Reinforcement.
Dogs learn through association and consequences.
There is more to training than just sit and stay. I look forward to hearing from you. Every dog deserves good training, but it takes a good owner to step up and get help when they need it.
Only you can be a voice for your dog. Please help your dog become at its best .
