1) Leadership

The foundation of my philosophy is being a leader to your dog. Dogs who do not have a figure in their life to look up to are under a tremendous amount of stress as they feel the need to be the ones making the decisions which is especially problematic for fearful and reactive dogs. By establishing ourselves as leaders, our dogs are able to become calm and relaxed as they start to understand that we are in control of different situations and that we can keep them safe. One aspect of being a leader to your dog is always holding them accountable for their actions so that they can start to understand what is unacceptable and acceptable behaviour. This is the foundation to building a healthy and happy relationship with your dog.

As a part of helping you become a leader to you dog I may require the use of tools such as slip leads or prong collars. These tools are widely misunderstood and to the left you can watch a video of how I use these tools in a positive manner that can help improve your relationship with your dog.

2) Positive Reinforcement

An aspect of being a good leader to our dogs is showing our dogs that we appreciate their good behaviour. This can be done through tools such as treats, toys, our voice or anything that our dogs find reinforcing!

3) Exercise

A huge factor in the development of behavioural issues is simply a lack of exercise. Dogs with too much pent up energy feel a strong need to release it. This unspent energy will soon find outlets that take the form of inappropriate behaviours. Thus, an important part of my philosophy is making sure that we are giving appropriate exercise to our dogs.

4) Consistency

Consistency is of utmost importance in order to ensure long term success. After a consultation with me the training will only remain successful if you continue to put into practice what I have taught you.
