About Dog Gone Problems

Welcome to Dog Gone Problems. We are a team of dog training experts and dog behavior consultants who exclusively use positive reinforcement (+R) and Force Free (FF) methods when we help, teach or train dogs. In addition to working with behavior issues like dog separation anxiety, we also offer Omaha’s best puppy training classes.

We started out working as a one man dog behaviorist shop who specialized in coming up with custom solutions to stop unwanted dog behavior problems. But due to overwhelming demand we have expanded into in home dog training by adding over a dozen trainers and dog behavior modification consultants to the Dog Gone Family

After working with nearly 10,000 dogs, the majority of our non-aggressive or non-fearful clients only need one session to put a stop to unwanted dog behavior problems. Dogs with fear or aggresison related problems may need follow up sessions due to those behaviors being more complex.

We are able to achieve quick and long lasting results for our clients because we show you all the things you may be doing that may confuse your dog or contribute to the problem, then how to fix it. No punishment based tools or aversiev training methods, just real results you will see in your dog.

When it comes to Dog Behavior, we have seen and fixed it all; overexcitement, barking, jumping, fears, anxiety, leash aggression, dog aggression, human aggression, resource guarding, digging, lack of focus, chewing, runs away, door dashes, doesn’t listen, invades personal space, humping, mouthing, nipping, potty training, excited or submissive urination, separation anxiety, kennel training and counter surfing to name a few.

We can also train your dog for you or assist you in training it yourself. We offer in home dog training exclusively using positive reinforcement and modern training methods. Our most popular training requests are loose leash walking, teaching a dog to stay on the dog bed when the doorbell rings, teaching a dog to heel, training a dog to stay, dog obedience, teaching a dog to fetch, roll over, play dead, leave it, sit, lay down, sit up, stand and hand targeting. But if it can be done, we can teach or train your dog to do it.

After your session, we will follow up with you by phone or email to make sure you are getting the results you want. After the session we remain available for you to call or email with any questions you may have.

Our dog behavior clients receive a detailed write up of your dog behavior session that includes a roadmap for success along with videos that go through the techniques and exercises we will teach you. You can read any of these success stories by clicking the Training Videos sections of our website.

    I attended your workshop at Mulhall’s this past Saturday. I am happy to report the improvement in some unwanted behaviors after only a few days! My dog seems more eager and focused. He is better on walks and when I answer the door. Your techniques help me to communicate more clearly with him. Thank you!

    So glad to hear that. Keep it up and it will get better. Just like anything else, practice makes perfect.

    WE NEED YOUR HELP! HI I work at an animal shelter in Blair Nebraska and recently we took in a 2 year old Lab/Mastiff mix that has very little social skills, knows very little human contact and has no clue what a command is. All he knows is living in a 10’x10′ kennel that was never cleaned and his dog house had a small heat lamp and it sat in 18 inches of feces. One problem is that he is SO STRONG with a mind of his own. PLEASE COME AND HELP US TRAIN HIM OR TRAIN US AT THE SHELTER TO BE BETTER EQUIPPED. He needs help from a professional. Blair Animal Shelter, 147 S 4th Street, Blair, NE 68008
