Dog training available in Peterborough and surrounding areas
As a force free dog trainer, you will find no concept of dominance, submission, rank hierarchy and pack theory based training whilst using my services. This traditional method of dog training prevents many dog owners from understanding their dogs and can cause untold misery for both. A dog that is showing 'bad' behaviour should either be redirected or ignored. We can teach our dog to do alternative behaviours, that way we can ask them to perform one instead of what we feel is perceived to be an inappropriate behaviour. This helps the dog to learn what to do and is far better than just getting angry because they're not doing the right thing.
During these private sessions, I will help to train you to train your dog to become a more balance and behaved member of your family, both at home and out in public. Here at Fox N Fables, we use force free science based training to reward your dog for doing something we'd like them to do, whether it be using verbal praise, toys or treats.
Dog training involves having patience, the motivation and also understanding. We can teach our dogs to engage with us by positively reinforcing behaviours we do want with FUN reward based games.
This is a private home visit but we can venture outside in your local area dependent on the training. We would start off with an initial consultation where I can get to know more about you and your dog and have a chat about what we need to work on and how. You would have already had a pre-consultation questionnaire sent to you by email that ideally you would have filled out prior to me coming over. Then I can introduce ways to initially manage the issues (if any) and/or to help you with training. You can then decide if you'd wish to carry on with further sessions to enhance the training received from the initial consultation or if you just want to improve on certain training aspects or perhaps resolve other issues you're having. Maybe you'd like to spend an enjoyable hour with your dog learning some new things to do. After the session, I will send you an email with a summary of what we with through during the session as well as a follow up email a week to 10 days after the visit.
