Your dog, like most animals in the wild, learns from trial and error. He is constantly experimenting to find out what happens. Some of the things he likes the result and continues to do them. This is how all your dog’s bad habits form, and I do mean all of them. The biting, jumping, growling, barking, bolting, and pulling on leash all stem from this process. This is also how you form good habits. When you watch a nature show, and they show a lioness out in the Serengeti stalking an antelope, she is completely focused. She gets herself within range. Then makes her run. Where she takes off, how patient she is, how quietly she stalks, the way she freezes when the antelope lifts it’s head, are all things learned from trial and error. She is so focused because if she makes a mistake in any area she and her pride go hungry. Enter your dog. Let us say your dog is stray. He wanders into your yard and you put some food out for him. The next time he get’s hungry he visits you. He doesn’t need to see that 100 times to learn. Your house is the restaurant. When he gets hungry, he goes to the restaurant. He associates the location as the source of food though. There lies a flaw. On the next entry, I will address that flaw. Ron...Read More

Ron Davidson is a fantastic Dog Trainer! I thought there was no hope for my extremely hyper one year old chessie, but after some training visits and tricks learned, I can already see that she will become a great companion!

My wife and I recently got a 4 month old MultiPoo, FULL of energy and every evil thought you can imagine for a healthy and happy puppy. We are a little on in age and we not having much luck with his training. We have always had dogs and never had on that minded. That all changed when we called and met Ron Davidson of The Canine Class. He took Bogey for 2 weeks and brought back a different animal. Still happy and full of it but minds well now. Ron gave me and wife a class on how not to be dominat…

I’ve worked with some really good trainers and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Ron Davidson and his training methods! I have a 5 year old PPD who needs a bit of “tweaking” and socializing. What a HUGE difference training with Ron has made. My recommendation? Don’t wait to start training with Ron. Begin when you first get your puppy. I won’t work with anyone else now, he’s amazing. . .

We wanted to let you know how happy we are with your training services. We noticed a difference in our beagle, Bernie, almost immediately. The techniques you showed us have enabled us to maintain all the progress Bernie has made. Thanks for everything!

I recently took my 8 month old Lakeland Terrier to Ron because ever since I got him at 6 months ago he hated his crate and barked like a crazed dog. I did Ron’s doggy boot camp for 2 weeks and it is like I have a new dog. He cries a little but no barking which is amazing to me. Ron is a gentle soul and I think trust, treats and respect is his motto with the dogs. He comes to your house twice to reinforce whatever needs to be done. I am very pleased with his technique and he is always available f…

I’ve never had a dog professionally trained before but because my dog is a rescue and he needed some socialization and training, I looked into this. After asking a family friend who is on the board of the Suffolk Human Society, I was told Ron was the guy to go to. He kept in contact with me throughout the 4 weeks my dog was in inboard training, sent me videos of the progress, and even let me stop by to visit and play with my dog. Wonderful, wonderful experience. He made sure I understood the tra…
