Suitable for puppies and older dogs
In-home training provides you with the benefit of teaching your dog basic general manners in the comfort of your home, away from a formal obedience class. Training your dog in and around your home allows your dog the ability to learn the correct way to behave in real life everyday situations suited to your household, routine and lifestyle. Learning how to teach your dog how to behave in your home, will allow you to incorporate force-free training skills into your day to day life, setting both your dog and yourself up for a successful and respectful relationship.
Some examples of basic general manners are:
- Come when Called
- Door Manners
- Go To Mat
- Leave it
- Loose Lead Walking
- Sit for Greeting
These exercises sound quite simple, however they do require a certain skill to teach and execute. They require patience, consistency and continued short repetitions to master. However, once the correct training techniques are used and incorporated into your day-to-day life, you will see a wonderful difference in your dog’s behaviour and overall demeanour. Dogs love to learn and earn rewards during training. Dogs also love predictable outcomes. By training these basic manners, you are allowing your dog to understand what is expected from them. Dogs need to be guided and shown what we want them to do in each particular circumstance. They will not and do not understand us unless we teach them clearly with perseverance and a gentle hand.
