If you want to have a well-mannered dog that listens, a peaceful walk on or off-lead, strengthen the relationship, do something new with your dog, this course can help! We use innovative game-based fun and positive training method and Tellington TTouch. The course aims to have your dog real-life ready.
During this course, you will gain fundamental knowledge of how dogs learn and necessary basic skills of how to effectively apply the knowledge to teach your dog basic manners and to manage your young and exuberant dog.
General good manners including basic obedience
Building foundation concepts for skills development: optimism, confidence, calmness, self-control, focus, and flexibility
Developing your dog's desire to work with you
Prevention of separation-related behaviour and guarding behaviour
Developing necessary & practical skills: recall, walking nicely, door manners, no jumping and more
Managing adolescent and adult dogs without nagging and shouting by helping the dogs think for themselves to make good choices in a variety of situations
All dogs will be assessed for reactivity before being allowed to interact with other dogs
The course is designed for adolescent and adult dogs with no prior training. Sooner rather than later is our recommendation to avoid the establishment of bad habits.
We do not use aversive method and equipment, simply because it is not necessary. As a positive method motivates your dog better and makes your dog more cooperative, it's more effective and efficient. And it's dog-friendly and human-friendly!
