Obedience training

Obedience Training is rewarding or praising a dog when it does something you want it to do or like and using positive corrective techniques when he does something you don’t want him to do or like. Obedience Training should be a way of communicating to your dog in such a way that it understands the commands you give, and that those commands have meaning. It must also promote and establish a proper relationship between you and your dog.

Dogs need to be taught and shown how to behave and live amongst us in an acceptable manner. By employing techniques which work in harmony with a dog’s natural instincts and drives, you will be providing parameters and rules where the dog can thrive and be happy as well as develop and enhance its personality. As with any healthy relationship, you must begin to develop a proper relationship with your dog, based on mutual understanding and trust.
