Dog Training and Behaviour Modification
Dog training for all stages of your dog's life. To secure the best start for your new puppy and to keep his mind active and your bond strong throughout his life.
Why Train my Dog?
Quick answer....Why not? All dogs from small puppies to adults can benefit from some type of training. Starting your new puppy off with some basic obedience can help prevent unwanted behaviours from developing and your dog will love spending quality one to one time with you learning and strengthening the bond between you.
Keeping your dog's mind active as he grows will help to channel any excess 'youthful exuberance' in a more positive direction, and as an adult dog continuing to learn new tricks and training will help keep him happy and active.
A well trained dog is a happy dog
Types of Training
Puppy Start Right One to One: Before your puppy is fully vaccinated and ready to go out in the big, wide world he's ready to start a little training. I can come to you and together we can start his basic training and talk through all of the common puppy pitfalls, the do's and dont's, toilet training, introducing the collar/harness and lead, and games to play.
Group Classes for basic obedience: Classes in groups of up to 6 dogs to start your puppy/dog on his way with basic obedience. Great to help focus his concentration on you with the added distractions of other dogs and people. Controlled socialisation with other dogs which will help with his doggy manners, and the one to one time will improve your bond.
One to One Training
Training on a Private Basis: Training classes at your home or in my training centre in Macher to help deal with problem behaviours or specific issues that you would like to work on.
Fun Trick Club: Join our trick club held on the last Saturday of every month, to learn some fun, interesting and (dare I say) show-offy skills.
Style of Training
I'm what is termed a 'force free' or 'positive' trainer, which basically means that I won't use any methods during training which make the dog uncomfortable, fearful or cause any pain or discomfort. I use reward based methods, using treats, toys, affection to show the dog when he's getting it right and what we want, and science has proven that these methods produce the most consistent and long-lasting results.
