1-2-1 Companion Dog Training
When I'm training I don't focus on what the dog is doing wrong, I focus on teaching the dog what I want it to do instead.
Common issues include;
- Dog doesn't listen
- Pulling on the lead
- Insane reaction to door bell
- Jumping up
- Resource guarding
- Excessive barking
- Let go!
- Growling at dogs
- Won't travel in the car/bus
- Chasing vehicles/bikes/skateboards
- Clicker training
- Impulse control
I can help with basic training and in transforming unwanted behaviours using techniques that will leave your dog happy and balanced.
My methods are kind, gentle and enjoyable for the dog and the owner. The dog is never put in a position where it is expected to fail. Using positive reinforcement is scientifically proven to be the most effective method of training dogs (and humans).
Your dog's training will begin in your home and then progress to real world situations as necessary. Working with you, I will show you practical skills to create your perfect canine friend.
Understanding how dogs learn opens the gates to unlimited possibilities. Your new-found skills will be useful for every other dog you meet or parent in the future.
Call me (Matt Jones) on 07774 780515 or 01273 380174 to book an initial consultation in your own home. The initial session will last 2-3 hours. I will take a thorough history of your dog and we'll talk about all aspects of his/her life. Together we'll create an action plan and begin some training, with some homework for you and Fido!
