One of the biggest issues in the country right now is the cost of living!

This is making us all tighten our belts & budget harder! This has also shown us a huge increase in comments such as “I can’t afford to train my dog”.

Well in some cases that is true, but in many cases, people haven’t actually had a look at the cost of training, the old assumption is that trainers are £700 a minute and are going to try and take all of your money!

But that’s very not the case these days!

LOADS of trainers right now are offering free advice services, budget friendly options, creating helpful content and generally are trying to help!

Why?

Cause most of us are in it for the dogs! (And in our case, we all are!). We all obviously still have to keep our own heads above water but that doesn’t stop us doing our best to help!

Dog training doesn’t need to be a luxury item in your budget and If you have an unwanted behaviour that you’re already struggling with, it will only become worse and ultimately cost more… so get help while it’s an easy fix.

If you’re struggling with your dog or just want to get something tweaked early on… why not check out our free consultation service? Drop us a line for more info!

Absolutely loving the reviews and beautiful comments coming in from you guys 🙏!

We take MASSIVE pride in helping you all to smash your goals and to get feedback only helps us to do that better each time!

Online Coaching is blowing up right now, with more and more people realising the huge benefits of having their “trainer in their pocket”

I’m super proud of these 2, Quinn had been a tricky dog to master for her owner but with a goal to do sport, we started laying some fresh foundations to tidy up her already pretty nice obedience!
In turn we have some lovely work coming out of her (just go check out their insta) as well as a much more confident handler, who’s even taking a look at the next bootcamp!!

Cannot wait to see how she’s progressed between the end of our coaching block and the start of bootcamp! There’s some serious hard work and dedication in this team 💪!

Definitely had to share this one!! Solid proud trainer moment!!

This dog was one of the most reactive dogs we’ve ever dealt with! Cars, dogs, the wind, you name it, she was barking!

But her owner has GRAFTED!

I literally couldn’t be more proud of these 2, there’s been some epic hours of training here and a few rejigs to the training program but managing to take her to somewhere that busy means that they’re not far off their goal…. A day at the beach!

Fantastic work and brilliant use of a real world scenario!

Which one is best?

Ultimately, the answer is neither, they’re both proven and effective methods to train a dog. When done correctly and consistently, they will absolutely work.

Not sure what they are?

Luring is using the dog’s reinforcer to guide the dog into position. For example, lifting a treat above it’s head to encourage the head to lift and butt to drop and getting a sit.

Shaping is letting the dog work it out. Steadily marking and rewarding small approximations towards the end goal.

Choosing which one to use depends massively on the dog, the handler/trainer and the behaviour being taught. It’s all about choosing the right fit for the task at hand.

The key to success of any method is consistency and clarity.

If you’re not sure which one to do to get to where you want to be, ask for help.

Well this was a pretty awesome PSA evening 🤣🤣

Some solid dog training as well as some solid puppy time!

What a bloody stunning litter! Chonky, confident, healthy and massive puppies!

When dealing with reactivity (of any origin).

The dog will 99/100 times not take food or toys when they’ve already locked into the dog. This is because they’re WAY over threshold and nothing else is important to them at this stage.

So how do we tackle that?

We teach them what we want them to do instead!
We do that WITHOUT the other dog present initially!

If the dog gets the chance to repeatedly practice their reactive behaviour, it will get worse. So to begin to correct the issue, management will need to be put in place alongside a proper training program!

Our Story

Armatus Risks Canine was started by ex military personnel with a passion for working with dogs.

We bring our professionalism and energy into an industry with the aim of being a name people associate with high standards and reliability. Our training team might seem young, but they are all ex Army, some being ex military working dog handlers themselves. Between the team we own 22 of our own working dogs and have over 40 years experience combined. Retired Military Working Dog Titch is our mascot after serving 6 years in the Army as a Search and Protection dog.

We are realistic in our approach to training and work in a relaxed atmosphere to get the best out of the people and dogs that train with us. Every dog and their handler is different, that's why each and every training session we run is tailored to them. Our courses are run throughout the year with competitive rates, discounts for veterans and previous students. We have contacts up and down the country so we have the ability to train at venues to give future dog handlers the best experience possible before doing the job.

So if you want to take on the life of a dog handler, or want somewhere to train, come and pull up a sandbag with us.

What a Afternoon 👌 The first PSA CLUB Meet down Armatus Canine Awesome Dogs and Awesome People... A real nice atmosphere. Crowely and Sophie got a few firsts in Including their first Car Jacking Scenario, this was also Crowleys first experience of a suit, which is much different to working a sleeve. Theres also not so much agitation for the Dog before the actual bite, again, a totally new concept for Crowley. They also tackled some Down Stays and OB around distractions, and but we starting to loose light at this point so no photos 😔 Looking forward to the next Club Day For those interested in PSA, head over to @armatuscanine for more info 😉 #coalitionk9 #teamck9 #psa #sportdog #bandog #presacanario #wayoflife #presa #king #crowley #psadogsports #psadog #protectionsports #obedience #dogtraining #dogtrainer #dayout #carjacking #bitesuit #sleeve #scenario #firattine #psaclubday #shutupandtrain #showmeonthefield #stepout #makesomenoise #trainingfield
