Dog's are individuals! Take time to understand your dog, how rewarding are toys, food, touch, praise to them? Which are rewarding/reinforcing, and when. Our dogs may enjoy our touch indoors but when outdoors this may change. Find out their preferences and respect them. Keep training fun for all.

The Three D’s of training Duration, Distance and Distractions. When training, raise the level of one “D” at a time. When training our dog's set them up for success at each stage of their training. If your dog is struggling it is likely one of the D's is to "high" for them currently, choose a different environment and practice more prior to returning to this level.. Training is a fluid process, not a fixed path of ever increasing difficulty. Keep your sessions short and fun for all..

Our dogs are very efficient with their energy. Reward your dog when offering desired behaviours such as settling, greeting others calmly, keeping all feet on the floor and they are more likely to repeat those behaviours. #dogtraining #positiverewardspositiveresults #dogs #puppy

Keep your training fun and build that special bond between you and your dog.
Positive reward based training not only provides effective training but also builds a trust between you and your dog to work as a team. #dogtraining #puppies #hampshire

We train our dog's to understand our language whether it's their lay down cue or recall. A conversation takes two, learn their language and understand your dog's behaviour. It could be a subtle change of ear position, tongue flick or avoiding eye contact. Your dog is 'talking' all the time, are you listening with your eye's?

Does your dog constantly bring things to you or seek attention in other ways?
Teach them to settle on a mat or blanket. It's important on several levels our dogs are comfortable and confident to go off and relax. Some dogs struggle to "switch off" but with consistency they can learn to, and it will be a great behaviour for them to have.

Does your puppy or dog mouth you?
Empower them to make appropriate choices. Teach them what is and is not suitable. Enrich their lives with lots of interesting items to chew and investigate. Redirect them when they choose something we do not want them to chew. Reinforce through rewarding the behaviours we want to see more of in the future.
