We all need to know how to communicate with our dogs. We owe it to them to understand, as much as possible, how they see the world and in turn, teach them how to behave and how to achieve it. What I try to do is to help you understand what makes your dog ‘tick’; to bridge the communications gap and build a working partnership based on trust and cooperation.
‘Animal Basics’ uses up to date positive training methods with rewards such as food, toys, games, and even sniffing! Clicker training is also taught for dogs and owners wishing to use this method. The dogs are allowed to work out what earns a reward and what does not. Training is set at the individual dog’s level, which means dogs of different levels can work in the same class, if appropriate. Dogs wishing to join are invited along for an individual session to be assessed to see which class would be most suitable for them.
