Dog Trainer – Cwmbran, Pontypool, Newport
There are many different dog training methods – what works for one dog/owner may not work for another.
How to train your dog is now a complex business. The internet is packed with forums and Facebook groups debating different methods. New phrases are added to the doggy dictionary on a daily basis – subtle twists and interpretations of existing themes that the keyboard trainers and behaviourists dissect into the early hours!
Different dog breeds have different instincts and drive. Dogs of the same breed are individuals and have different motivations. So there is no such thing as “one training method fits all”!
We can find a training method that can work for you and your dog – and drill into you the importance of Repetition, Continuity and Timing!!
Most dogs will work and can be trained using praise and food rewards. Some dogs will work for a ball or a toy. Some will be biddable to instructions to hunt or search. The key to success is to establish what each individual dog finds rewarding – then ask the dog to learn and work for that reward under your direction.
We offer 1-2-1 or small group dog training. After an initial assessment, we’ll discuss an appropriate plan tailored for you and your dog – not a regurgitated text book answer! Dog training by reading internet forums rarely works – reading the dog in front of you does!
