Training your Dog

 

Is your dog prone to deafness on a walk? Pulls you everywhere on the lead? Forgets their manners when visitors arrive?

If you are struggling to fit in the time to train your dog, I can help.

A well-behaved dog is a pleasure to own, yet it takes time and persistence to achieve this result. I am an experienced dog trainer that offers the convenience of in-home, positive reinforcement, private training. Training can be incorporated into daycare or dog walking routines for those who do not have the time.

If you are taking on a new puppy, effective early training is vital. Puppies are like small children and it is important that they learn essential life skills at this age. To aid this, I offer a comprehensive ten day ‘potty camp’. This ten day course allows pups to learn their manners while also allowing owners to gain a better understanding of their new puppy. Clients learn how to read their puppies body language and signals, helping the training process in the long-term. Bad behaviours are easier to avoid that they are to break! So, catching them before they form is our goal.

In addition to the more common problems, I can also help with ‘problem’ dogs or rescues. Specific issued such as separation anxiety can also be targeted.
