This training programme is designed to teach adolescent and adult dogs to respond quickly to a selection of commands/cues and eradicate undesirable habits.
Minimum 6 weeks (depending on the individual dog) and a compulsory handover of two half day sessions with the owner upon completion of the programme at The Dog House, Wales. It is imperative that all handlers/carers of the dog are present at this time.
From 6 months old (depending on breed and maturity).
Elements included are:
Teaching of 8–12 basic cues so your dog responds to voice, hand and whistle signals. We also try to teach a further 8 – 12 behaviours. A printed guide is provided as a reference.
Teaching of rapid response to Recall (coming straight back when called).
Discouragement and elimination of pulling on the lead, boisterous behaviour, jumping up, chasing and other behavioural issues.
Elimination of barking, howling when left alone, over sensitivity to loud noises, destructiveness, stealing and other household problems including house training.
Sit and stay commands taught and reinforced prior to crossing a road and approaching an opening doorway, car door or gateway.
Regularly exercised and socialised with a variety of breeds for a minimum of 1 1⁄2 hours each day.
