“A dog wags its tail with its heart” – Martin Buxbaum
Some people like to measure their competency with their dogs (for example, Rally or Good Citizen Dog Scheme), others may want to pursue activities such as Flyball, Agility, Gundogs, Treibbal, etc., or maybe you just want your dog to be a well-mannered, sociable member of the family.
I will teach you to train your dog by equipping you with the foundation skills, training methods and ideas that will enable you to take your doggy ambitions wherever you want to go.
Training walks are available to individuals or small groups (max 4) where we will walk and train our dogs. Dogs need to learn to perform behaviours like loose lead walking, sit, stay and recall in many different types of environment before these cues can be said to be reliable. These walks give you the opportunity to work on these cues under various levels of distraction and teach you how to “read your walk” to avoid potential problems.
“I wanted to let you know that Leo seems to be turning into the dog YOU always believed he would be (I was the one of little faith!). He is a pleasure to be with, both at home and out and about, meets and greets other people and dogs without the need to lunge at them or be overly bossy, and is for the most part astonishingly obedient!! Many thanks again for all your help.” Sally James & Leo (Labrador)
