No matter what type of animal you need trained, you will enjoy your experience with College for Pets. We work closely with you from start to finish to make sure that you and your animal friend kindle the best relationship possible.MIKE ROBERTSON, OWNER
While most people think of training dogs and maybe cats, most don’t realize that a whole host of other animals benefit from training. The truth is that most animals respond to basic instruction and learn tricks and commands. It just takes the right technique and the proper incentive.
Pet rats show a great deal of intelligence. With a little bit of training they perform tricks and obey basic commands. We estimate that a rat possesses the same capability to learn as a six month old puppy. Given the right incentives, rats respond very well to training. As a matter of fact, people use rats to detect land mines in Africa.
Training rats to do tricks and come when called by name is pretty easy. If you’ve never worked with a rat before, their affection and intelligence might surprise you. We show you the best way to train your pet rat.
Begin training your own rat, or work with one of ours at the training center.
Yes, you can train a fish. They just need a bit of schooling (groan). Everyone knows that aquarium fish are relaxing to watch, but few realize you can train those same fish to do some pretty neat tricks.
Utilizing food rewards delivered via a submersible target stick, your fish learn to swim through hoops, do flips, navigate weave poles and push a soccer ball into a net.
With a few simple props and an hour of instruction, you will be well on your way to owning your own circus of fish.
They provide us with eggs, fiber, meat and milk so, why not reward them with a bit of mental enrichment.
We find that farm animals are quite intelligent and capable of learning useful tasks as well as fun tricks. Yes, chickens respond to training. So do goats and all sorts of other farm animals.
It doesn’t matter wether (pun intended) you need to train an animal for your 4-H project or work around the farm, we can show you how.
"It has changed everything! Our house is calmer and our walks are a pleasure. Honestly, I wish we did this a long time ago!"
"The facility was clean, smelled nice, was organized and comfortable for both myself and my pup. I give another 5 stars."
I know I couldn’t have done it by myself and I owe it all to Mike at White Mountain College for Pets and thank him for the help he has given to my dog and me... I couldn’t be more happy that I decided to go there.
I honestly can't believe the change in such a short space of time and am so so proud of her and so thankful to you Karen for making life with our dogs even more enjoyable.
Today, Finn has readjusted to the household! He still is full of it, but he is a puppy! I am consistent in using the training Mike showed me and our house is happy again!
We now have a safer home, a safer and happier dog, and we are much more knowledgeable owners. The private sessions even gave us the confidence to continue training on our own, and Mike is only an email away.
Rabbits can be trained to go to a specific spot to do their “business.” So can potbelly pigs and ferrets. With just a little prompting and our gentle training techniques, your pet can be litterbox trained. This makes it possible for them to have the run of your house without making a mess.
