Toy Swap for Daycare Clients

This is a fun enrichment idea for all Doggone Fun! Daycare family members!
If you have a toy at home that your dog doesn’t play with anymore, bring it in and swap it with one from our toy box.
This will help keep toys fresh, new and exciting for your dog. It also is a great form of sensory enrichment, because the toy you take home will have the scent of other dogs and the daycare.
The only rule is if you take a toy, please leave a toy.
Doggone Fun! clients can swap toys anytime. If a toy gets destroyed, don’t worry just swap another toy!
There is a black wire toy basket in the lobby. We encourage Doggone Fun! clients to take advantage of this free enrichment opportunity.

MEET THE TRAINER  

Nakita Johnson, ABC-CPDT

Nakita Johnson - Dog Trainer

Hi! My name is Nakita Johnson and I am so excited to work with you and your dogs as part of the Doggone Fun! family.  I have spent the last seven years studying and working with dog packs in daycare facilities from coast to coast. In 2019 I completed my formal education at Animal Behavior College, which included an internship training dogs for adoption at the local Humane Society.  I then went on to direct the training program at a large daycare and boarding facility in St. Petersburg, Florida.  I am also AKC certified to teach and evaluate STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen courses.

I am a balanced trainer who emphasizes compassionate leadership, positive reinforcement, and setting dogs up for success. Just like us, our pups are much more likely to do something if they’re having a good time doing it.  The good news is TRAINING IS FUN!  It’s one of the most enriching and rewarding aspects of life with our canine friends.  I firmly believe we can work together to make training more than just another chore.  I will design programs that are fun and rewarding.  We will work together for positive outcomes for you and your precious pups.  Happy Tails!

 

Clicker Training For Dogs!

What Is Clicker Training? – Clicker Training is a fun and exciting way of communicating with and training your dog. This science based method of training has been successfully used for years with marine mammals and animal actors on TV sitcoms, commercials and movies. It has now taken the dog world by storm.

Clicker Training is based on the behavioral theory called “Operant Conditioning”. It uses positive reinforcement to strengthen desired behaviors. Simply put, clicker training uses a distinct marker signal –a clicker- to mark a desired behavior. The clicker sound or marker says to the dog, “YES!, that is exactly what I wanted you to do and now you will receive a worthwhile reward. The reward motivates the dog to repeat the behavior and the clicker gives the dog the exact information about what action the dog did that actually won the reward.

Animals learn best when their own capabilities are encouraged and directed into behaviors that help them live harmoniously with humans. Clicker trainers set their dogs up to succeed then reward them for their successes. It is fun and easy to learn for you and your dog. Clicker training is a powerful animal training tool. Best of all the dogs love it! They have a clear understanding of what they are doing right, and they get a chance to earn rewards like food treats, favorite toys, attention and praise through their own actions. With Clicker training you do not need choke chains or pinch collars because you and your dog work together as a team. You can clearly and positively communicate with each other and build a long lasting positive, trusting and respectful relationship.
