Obedience training

We manage effective obedience training programs that are simple to understand and easy to implement for the whole family.

Training is an extremely important part of any dogs life and is also important for the owners. Not only does it provide mental stimulation which helps to keep your dog happy but when used in conjunction with daily exercise will also help to keep your dog healthy as well.

Our primary training method is reward based whereby the dog is set up to succeed and then rewarded for performing a ‘good’ behavior. This is also known as ‘positive reinforcement training’ and is generally the best way to go. Reward-based training is not only enjoyable to the dog but also beneficial to the owner/dog relationship. This approach revolves around positive reinforcement – i.e. rewarding behavior that we as the owner approve of. Rewards may be in the form of a tasty treat or verbal praise such as ‘good dog!’ in a pleasant tone of voice, only to be given when your dog performs the good behavior that we are looking for. This form of training also involves ignoring any ‘unwanted’ behaviors. Ideally you want to achieve several things whilst training your dog. This includes but is not limited to attention, listening and behavior. You also want to get closer to your dog and have a better understanding of him/her yourself!

Sometimes if an owner reacts to ‘unwanted’ behavior by yelling or getting angry they may inadvertently reinforce the bad behavior. Any form of physical punishment must not be used in any training programs. Punishing a dog for any ‘unwanted’ behavior can actually exacerbate the problem and can often lead to a misunderstanding between both the dog and the owner.

Teach your dog to sit

Learning the sit is one of the first things you should teach your dog. This creates a very strong foundation that you can work with going forward.

Teach your dog to down

Just as handy as the sit and sometimes even more helpful. Teaching the down correctly helps with the stay and also general control in different environments.

Teach your dog to stay

The stay is often left out by most people as this can be difficult to teach. We will work with you to accomplish this together!

Teach your dog to leave

Teaching your dog to leave is great for when they have a sock or other item you wish them not to grab or possibly drop.

Teach your dog their name

Name recognition is a very powerful tool to teach your dog. This is something that can be used in every single scenario without fail.

Household manners

Teaching your dog not to jump up on things and to leave food be is a great and wonderful experience!
