Training is a lifestyle

Whether you have a new puppy that you want to start off right, an adult dog that is stubborn, or a dog that needs socializing we have a program that fits your needs. My training method is known as Balanced Training. Balanced Training is the usage of all four quadrants of operant conditioning. The following training tools I use, but are not used on all dogs are: 6ft leash, 20ft training leash, prong collar, e-collar, clicker, treat bags, training tab, food reward, toy reward, verbal markers, and praise. My techniques have been proven to work in a timely manner and last a lifetime as long as the family maintains training. Training is a lifestyle. Not only do I train dogs, but I train humans as well. In order for training to absolutely work, trainers have to train the dog's family. I offer in home training services and board & train services.  Please note, you must live within 60 miles of Linton, IN for in home sessions. All training packages receive a lifetime of follow up appointments. We have graduates from all over, including out of state! Check out where our small business has traveled to. 

Our Mission

Aydt's Shepherds and Training exists to connect dogs and people through breeding and training. We strive to provide you with the canine companion you have dreamed of. We understand that communication is important between canine and human. To meet their needs and yours. It is important that we show canines how to behave in a wide variety of environments and that we provide families with ample information for their canine companions to succeed in these environments. That is why we offer the best training around for BOTH you and your dog. Finally, we understand that a dog cannot be trained in a couple weeks. Training is a lifestyle.

Until further notice we can only offer In-Home training services.
