Training

Our approach in training is positive reinforcement: we are firm but fair, using up-to-date methods.  Annabel is training with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) in positive dog training. We are also certified by the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training and we have the Compass qualification in Canine Behaviour from the College of Canine Studies.

We can help train dogs to:

  • Come when called
  • Sit, lie down, stand on command
  • Walk on a loose lead without pulling
  • Accept handling (including for vets and groomers)
  • Wait
  • ‘Settle’
  • ‘Leave’ when asked
  • Accept people near to food bowls, bones and chew
  • Stop play biting
  • Be sociable with humans, children, and other puppies
  • Greet people without jumping up

 

We recommend training for:

  • The boisterous self-pleasing dog
  • The nervous dog
  • The untrained dog
  • Excessive barking
  • Destructive Behaviour
  • Mouthing and play-biting
  • Sound Phobia
  • Recall issues
  • Submissive Urination
  • Car Sickness
  • Canine or feline introductions
  • House toilet training issues
  • Separation Anxiety
