Dog Obedience in Adelaide

If the methods you have been using are not helping you with your dog

If you have been working with and been given advice from other trainers, to help modify or work through behavioural issues with your dog, and finding you are having little success, or the process has been taking too long, or been advised your dog needs to be placed on psychotropic medication, or worse still be put to sleep, then you seriously need to be looking at alternative methods for the welfare of your dog.

Relying on methods that could take months, by using counter-conditioning methods that only incorporate ignoring, redirecting or avoiding unwanted behaviours can lead dog owners to becoming frustrated, and possibly resort to eventually administering inappropriate punishment to their dog. We need to understand the unwanted behaviours, the underlying causes and triggers, and then with this understanding help the dog as quick as we can by using methods the dog instinctively understands.

If you have been told your dog has no hope and is untrainable and its issues cant be fixed by any trainers ESPECIALLY aversive free or pure positive trainers see me FIRST before you kill or give up your dog because of an ideology READ MORE HERE

Proven Training Techniques

We are confident that the methodology that we use WORKS. It has been proven over time to be consistent in its results. And consistency is one of the underlying factors of training a dog to be obedient.Using knowledge and tools available to us we give you the best opportunity to travel down the road of having a responsible dog.Using the experience of hands on training and trying different methods we have put together a training program that is suitable for all dogs. Be they shy or outgoing. One type of training doesn’t fit all so we tweak the training to suit the type of dog.Finding the best formula for each dog permits us to teach you how to train it effectively and quickly. We guarantee it.
You would have read on other sites about using the latest scientific information. The secret is that its not that new as they would have you believe. And EVERYONE uses it.

Most of the best obedience trainers in the world use a balanced approach to their training. The majority of dogs are not highly motivated enough where positive and negative reinforcement alone will be enough for your dog to be obedient.If the reward is of less substance than the action the dogs wants to take, for example chasing a cat which is an inherent drive in some dogs, how is a piece of kibble or fritz going to convince a dog not to chase the cat.The reward of chasing the cat is by far greater than anything that you can offer it.This is where corrections must take place. The things that you don’t want your dog to do sometimes need to be corrected rather than threatening the dog with removal of a treat.

Only dogs with a very high motivation does positive and negative reinforcement work. And by far most people that want a pet do NOT want these dogs. As they are too, for a better word wild. Always wanting to chase ,bite things, run

The majority of dogs fall into a class where they are semi motivated by food or tug toys but not enough to stop them doing things that THEY want.

 

 

Using our balanced training methods  Dog Training Adelaide can fix those problems so you can have a dog just like the ones you see and envy when you walk yours.Using specific proven methods we can change or modify its behaviour for your benefit.
At Dog Training Adelaide we allow your dogs to make choices. We praise effort, and do not correct error. We encourage, and build on your dog’s confidence, and reward every increment of training. We do NOT train by correcting your dog when he is wrong. We instruct. When do we correct? When your dog says NO. That doesn’t mean we don’t use a leash to instruct. That does not mean we don’t give your dog a “no” when they are wrong.
We believe that all dogs should enjoy working. If we must beg our dogs, or use a treat or to get our dogs to get excited to work for us, then we have failed.

Having a dog is a responsibility, having an obedient dog is a pleasure.Using our balanced approach your dog and you can leave our training school with you knowing that you now have a better relationship with it and the knowledge that he will do as you say where ever he is.

We are here to firstly build a foundation for you and your dogs relationship to grow.As with any building without a strong foundation there is a strong likelihood of collapse.Nearly all problems regarding a disobedient dog is related to the relationship you have with it

The proof of an obedient dog is its performance off lead

Our aim is to give you an obedient dog in all circumstances.
A well behaved dog behaves on and OFF lead and not just in your back yard or house.

  • Does you dog come to you every time you call it when it is away from you?
  • Does it stay where you tell it regardless of things going on around it ?
  • Could you walk it off lead around the outside of a dog park?

A reliable dog isn’t just a well behaved one, its an obedient one ALL THE TIME.

Do not be fooled by the “feel good ,wrap you in cotton wool,doggy parent” cliches that the supposedly “new age scientific dog trainers” are using to tempt you by testing your morality.Telling you that other methods are cruel and inhumane and theirs is the “RIGHT WAY”. Regardless of how many courses and years of academic training they have,while the credentialing might ultimately address the “who” is offering the training, it does not address the “what” can/should the consumer reasonably expect.

We will tell you what you can expect and in what time frame and what cost.Servicing Adelaide and suburbs at North Ingle School,

We give you a balanced,even approach to dog training, one that teaches your dog to trust and respect you.
How Do we do it?

There is no secret to it though some may profess to know the almighty “secret”.

The first step is to change the relationship you have with your canine friend … for the better

We teach you to understand your dogs thinking and using proven methods utilise this knowledge for the benefit of both of you.

We build your leadership skills so your dog looks up to you for direction and comfort when necessary.

Your dog needs leadership if it doesn´t it becomes confused , unpredictable and living in a haze of where does he fit into the hierarchy of his/your family.

They need to know as people do, consequences for their actions. All living things live by consequence whether they be a good or bad. Letting a dog know these consequences lets it become a lot calmer and easier to live with.Without consequence there can be no learning and with that can come aggression,barking,authority and anxiety problems.

And i know these things cause STRESS in the owner but once we have taught you how to lead confidently you will become a lot more assertive and your relationship with your dog will improve.

As quoted from the ScienceDaily (May 1, 2009)
According to Joaquín Pérez-Guisado, the main author of the study and a researcher from the UCO, some of the factors that cause aggressiveness in dogs are: first-time dog ownership; failure to subject the dog to basic obedience training; spoiling or pampering the dog; not using physical punishment when it is required; buying a dog as a present, as a guard dog or on impulse; spaying female dogs; leaving the dog with a constant supply of food, or spending very little time with the dog in general and on its walks.
Failure to observe all of these modifiable factors will encourage this type of aggressiveness and would conform to what we would colloquially call `giving our dog a bad education, Pérez-Guisado explains to SINC.

And that is only one factor that emerges when the hierarchy,consequence and leadership aren´t there.

We have over 10 years experience in training dogs all over Adelaide be it in our group classes or private lessons.We invite you to come down and have a look on a Sunday so you can see our  dogs that have been trained and giving you an opportunity to talk to  us  first.We know from experience that most clients will return after they see the level of obedience that our dogs posses.

We humans created dogs and have lived with them for more than 15,000 years. That is about 14,800 years longer than organised science or academically trained scientists. The proof of that is that Sir Isaac Newton was an alchemist who believed he could turn lead into gold. That is as silly as Skinner claiming that using exclusively positive reinforcement is a viable option for controlling dog behaviour.
