At Dog-ease we offer obedience training on a 1-2-1 basis or in a group training class setting. For group training, our obedience training courses start with a 1-2-1 introductory session, either at your home or at the Dog-ease Training School, whichever you prefer.
What to expect
Just like us humans, all dogs will have their individual character traits and needs. This can stem from the breed traits of your dog as well as mannerisms and personality traits passed down through their ancestors. If your dog is a rescue, your dog’s needs will also be dependent on their prior experiences. During your 1-2-1 session, Adem will be able to give you an insight into the mind of your individual dog and how best to help them to understand how to be a good, well-mannered and happy member of your family.
Our training sessions are carefully structured to ensure that all dogs and their owners are able to achieve and make good progress towards the four training awards that we offer: Puppy, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Whatever training level your dog comes in at, we can tailor our training to suit your needs. Training activities are taught in a step by step fashion, with your instructor demonstrating for you and your dog first and helping you to overcome any issues you might have. Upon starting in a training class, you will be given the criteria you will be working towards during your course. This helps you to know what you are working towards as well as heling you to structure your own training, outside of classes, when teaching your dog how to respond to your commands.
With our busy lives and our love of sharing experiences and going to new places with our canine best friends (who doesn’t enjoy a relaxing walk on the beach!), it is important to teach our dogs how to understand our modern world and the situations that they might find themselves in. Our training syllabus doesn’t just help you to teach your dog to respond to commands, it also helps you to understand how to apply your training to your everyday life so that you and your dog can get the most out of life together, your dog is confident in new situations, and your dog shows off the good manners they have learnt around other dogs, people and animals.
At Dog-ease we teach through the use of positive reinforcement by praising your dog through the use of your voice, tasty food treats, and play. These encourage your dog to want to learn! We teach you how to time your praise carefully so that your dog can understand what your command means, respond appropriately, and learn quickly!
At Dog-ease we can help you with issues that you might experience, the ones that if you could fix would make your day a lot easier and your time together more enjoyable! This can be anything from jumping up, running around you when you’re trying to get the lead on, or ‘going deaf’ on your calls for them to return when in certain situations.
We have both a large, fully secured, outdoor training paddock and a large, fully lit, indoor training hall. This means that you can undertake your training comfortably in all weathers and at all times of the year.
We keep our obedience training classes small to ensure that all owners and dogs are able to receive 1-2-1 training time and attention. This helps us to ensure that our approach remains personal and our classes are tailored to the needs of each of our class members, both canine and human!
