A well trained dog is a happy dog.
I provide dog training in Dumfries and the surrounding area. I specialise in working with the owners of pet dogs to improve their relationship with their dog. My approach is to work with the owner and their dog on a one to one basis, helping dog owners to better understand how their dog thinks and most importantly how their dog learns
Many of the common obedience and behaviour problems such as pulling on the lead, refusing to come back when called, jumping up on people etc. can be cured relatively quickly with my help. I can also help dog owners overcome behaviour problems such as separation anxiety, destructive behaviour, over excitement etc. I prefer to work with the owners during the process, fully involving them in the training process which gives them a better understanding of canine behaviour and how dogs respond to human emotions and body language. However in situations where the owners are unable to do this I am happy to do the training on my own then spend time with the owner, educating them on how they must deal with the dog from then on. There are rules which must be followed to maintain the dog’s level of obedience otherwise the newly trained dog will simply return to his old ways.
A number of common behavioural issues which many pet dogs exhibit can be related back to a lack of basic obedience training. For example refusing to come back when called. What usually happens here is the owner has a few bad experiences when the dog has ran off and refused to come back so the owner decides that the dog will not be let off the lead again.
The result the dog becomes frustrated due to a lack of exercise (most dogs require at least 30 minutes free running exercise a day) he returns home with loads of unused energy and looks for ways to use it up. Chewing your possessions or property, pacing up and down and whining, are all favourites.
