Training

Everyone’s situation is different but whatever type of training you are interested in, it is important to establish solid foundations as this provides something on which you can build.

A key part of those foundations is to develop a balanced relationship with your dog as this is a corner stone to successful training.

Whether you have a specific breed of dog or the popular mutt, what most dog owners want is a happy well mannered dog that is part of the family. At 4Dogs we have an individualised positive approach to training, working with you to help to meet the needs of both you and your dog.

Things to consider:

  • Spending time with dogs is a great way to get to know them better and it’s also fun!
  • Dogs are all individuals and although different breeds can have specific behaviour traits knowing and understanding your own dog can help with their training.
  • Set your dog up for success by knowing what you want and setting achievable training goals. Individualise the training to meet your own dog’s needs.
  • Select positive based methods and techniques that you are comfortable with and that are appropriate for your situation.
