Adult Dog Training



About the serviceAdult Dog Training

Adult dog beginner 'One to One' training package is ideal for adult dogs that have never been taught basic manners and obedience.
This 'one to one' package will also help towards eradicating some unwanted behaviours your dog may have developed whilst growing up. For example pulling on the lead and jumping up at people.

You might find yourself needing this service because although you have a very friendly dog it could be just unruly. This might be because you have taken on an adult dog and the previous owners did very little or no training. It may be because you just didn't have the time or realise the importance of training your dog when it was a puppy.
What ever the reason this package is for you, as it is never too late!

The training will take place in and around your home and on some occasions, local public places. This gives you and your dog realistic surroundings and distractions to train in, which can be of great benefit to you and your dog.

I will be sharing useful information and each week you and your dog will learn basic obedience. Every week you will have time to put the obedience exercises into practice. This will enable me to assist you and give you practical support on each of the exercises and overcome any problems.
Practice is very important for your dog's development and so you and your dog will be able to progress each week. By training every day (little and often) and practicing the commands/exercises, you will soon see the benefits.

Happy Dog Days training techniques are repetition, consistency and reward based using verbal praise, food or your dog's favourite toy. There is no rough handling or angry shouting.
