Do you still 'command' your dog or describe yourself as their 'owner'? Then it's time to update your language. Read my article in to learn why it's so important to choose your words carefully when communicating with your dog 🐾

🌟 It's sometimes not easy to achieve everything during class time. I tell my clients the real work happens between classes with practice at home. This team made a start in class to teach the down position and here they are perfecting it at home. Fantastic work, well done πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘β€οΈπŸΎ

🌟 Before heading off on the lead, it's important to teach pups where they need to be. Here's one of our week 2 students totally nailing it ❀️🐾

✨ Pups get a lot of information from sniffing. For our first introductions to eachother in class, we don't do face to face greetings as it's far too much pressure. Instead we let them sniff eachothers' beds...I like to think of it as the human equivalent of a handshake, not a hug 🐾

❀️ Fantastic start to recall training. Teach your pup that you'll collect their lead to stop them immediately heading straight off again. Excellent work 🐾❀️

23/11/2022

Some fantastic recalls already and it's only week 1! Keep up the great work 🐾❀️

🌟 Practicing between classes will cement the foundation learning we set in class. Utterly brilliant recall practice from this team ❀️🌟

πŸŒ§οΈβ˜” This weather isn't fun for us and can often mean our dogs don't get as much outdoor fun. Your dog can still have rainy day fun, it's just a case of being a little creative. Here's how my dog spent some of our rainy days πŸ’§πŸΎ

I've been a bit rubbish at welcoming and celebrating our recent students so here's a little montage from recent months ❀️🐾

🌟 Building confidence is a really important aspect of our puppy training classes. Using different surfaces, sounds and textures helps our pups to overcome any worries and face the world with confidence 🐾

Using a long line for recall practice ensures your pup doesn't practice the things you don't want - running away - but has a sense of freedom. Amazing work from this team πŸ‘β€οΈ

🌟Where do you socialise your pup? 🌟 The answer should be "all the places you go" and that might well include the pub as these students found out. Teaching your pup to settle and feel comfortable in places that you regularly visit means your pup can go with you. So many places are dog friendly so ensure your socialisation schedule includes these places 🐾

🌟 Don't fear the food 🌟 I'll often have clients ask me when they can stop using food for training. My answer is... never! Why should that be our goal? Does your employer try and phase out your paycheck the longer you work? Nope! So don't short change your dog. There are clever ways to use food to ensure it's always reinforcing, even if it's not the top dollar, top notch option which means we can use a portion of our dog's daily allowance as well as healthy treats such as fruit and vegetables. Training goals should never include removing reinforcement, find what motivates your dog, use it and continue to reward behaviours you like 🐾

How's this for a week 6 trick?! Totally blown away, well done to this amazing team ❀️🌟

🌟 Great work from our ADVANCED students. Platform training is easy, fun and effective and just one of the many new training ideas we include in our next level classes.

Today on our (soggy walk) we came across two dogs in shock collars. I couldn't hide my sadness on seeing the poor dogs in these horrible devices because, like
Jane Goodall says, these sentient, emotional creatures feel everything. There's no reason to use such barbaric 'training' methods. I'm not judging the owners of these dogs, they've been given some appalling advice and I'm sure believe they're doing right by their dogs. However, I do judge the unqualified trainers advocating these as solutions for various behavioural needs. Being good at social media does not qualify you to train dogs. Hard work, study and belonging to recognised regulatory organisations does. Please don't use shock, prong, choke or any other horrible collars on your beautiful dogs ❀️
