Meet the Trainers
Jake Belmont & Louise Daigle of Red Pointy Dog Training.
Jake got his start in the dog world right here at TYDB nearly 9 years ago. Fascinated by the various behaviors individual dogs can display, Jake created his business around the study and practice of changing dog behavior. He believes training should be fun for dogs and humans too. It is because of this that Jake uses positive methods of training and educates owners on the pitfalls of correction based techniques. Jake believes that positive training methods develop trust and strengthen a person's relationship with their dog. When your dog enjoys working with you, they are more willing to do so.
Jake is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and is a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator with the American Kennel Club. He continues his studies and education because dog training is a growing and evolving field. Jake shares his home with the “Red Pointy Dogs” in Strafford. In his free time, you can find Jake hanging out with Manzo and Piper, mountain biking, or hiking in the white mountains with Louise.

This class is for dogs 3 to 6 months old and up-to-date on shots and vaccinations. This class requires you to bring 100-150 small pea sized training treats and a 6 foot, non-retractable leash to each class.
Puppy hood is a time of playing, laughing, learning, exploring and growing (all too fast!). At this impressionable stage, building a trusting relationship is paramount too. That is why this class will be focused on a training style that is positive and fun. Using a clicker or marker word (yes, nice, etc.) to shape and reward appropriate behavior instead of correcting undesirable behavior. It is our belief that training should be fun for both dog and human. So let's grab our treat pouches and have some fun!
