Training

Our training philosophy is drawn upon many experts in the field of dog training and methods backed by scientific research that explains how dogs learn and how best to teach them. Engagement activities are inherently bonding for both owners and dogs as they learn to work together with each other for problem solving skills.

Engage

Early socialisation for your puppy is vital as it provides a positive impact on your dog’s life. A well socialised puppy is at ease when meeting people, other dogs and in different environments. Our puppy playschool exposes your pups gradually to various social elements and gets them ready for real world situations. These essential exercises when learned and performed regularly with you will prevent many behavioural issues from developing later in your dog’s life. An engaged dog has good physical, emotional and mental stimulation. These dogs are well balanced and happy. Many behavioural issues surface when dogs are not well engaged resulting in pent up energy that they try to output in areas that they should not.

Enjoyment

It’s all about having fun! Reward-based training is enjoyable for your dog and positively enhances the relationship between you and your dog. This approach revolves around positive reinforcement. Rewards may be in the form of tasty treats or verbal praises such as ‘yes’ in a pleasant tone of voice, to be given when the dog performs the ‘good’ behaviour. For many dogs, the process of learning is reinforcing and sparks their interest to learn more!
