With a wealth of experience, we are excited to be specialising in 1-2-1 programmes for puppies and adolescent dogs.
These programmes have been designed to give you personalised training. We can help you to work on fantastic foundations including life skills. Life skills can include politeness to visitors, going to the pub or cafe, family picnic, etc.
Helping both novice and experienced owners right from the start to create the perfect relationship between you and your puppy as they grow into the dog that you have always wanted. Puppies don’t stay puppies for long. From 14 weeks of age they can hit adolescence head on. Causing some owners to question what they have done by getting a puppy! This can make owners feel very overwhelmed. Putting people and adolescent dogs in a class environment isn’t always the answer especially if you have never owned a dog before.
Don’t worry about socialisation; we will teach you the correct way to socialise your puppy. There is so much more to socialisation than allowing puppies to play. We will give you the information and help to ensure that your puppy is socialised to your world in the correct way.
Paws 4 Training do not deal with dog behavioural issues.
For any behaviour issues you may be having with your dog please get in touch with Tamasine Smith Leadchanges
What we can help with
We will put together a programme of all the exercises you would like to cover with your puppy. You will be sent links to supporting videos for the exercises that we work on to help you with your training at home.
Examples of what we can cover:
- Settle on a mat
- Focus exercises – response to name, eye contact and touch (target training)
- Bombproof sit
- Loose lead walking
- Stay or wait
- Emergency stop
- Canine enrichment
- Bite inhibition
- Prevention of chewing and tugging on clothes and hair etc.
- How to stop jumping up
- Leaving items, using distraction techniques
- Drop or exchange an item
- Calm meets and greets
We use behaviour based training which includes problem solving for the dogs. This helps their partly formed brain to understand and retain the information better.
We will work with you to achieve a foundation level of training which will be progressed to working under distraction.
By using problem solving techniques, luring and free shaping this will allow your puppy time to think to work out what behaviour we want them to do. We always work at the dog’s pace.
With over 14 years’ professional dog training experience and a lifetime experience of having dogs, you will be in great hands learning how to lay down excellent foundations for future training.
Each puppy and owner are unique, and we adapt our training to suit the clients we are working with.
We are happy for future clients to visit us at our training centre to come and watch how we work or just have a chat. Please get in touch to organise a convenient time to visit.
