"A Training method is only successful to you if you fully understand it and feel comfortable with it"
The Dog Trainer
What is a thinking dog?
"The thinking dog" is a confident, happy working animal who understands exactly what he is supposed to perform on any given command, enjoys confronting new difficulties, is rarely bored with obedience and can be fine-tuned to the utmost accuracy.
PUPS Dog Training School is committed to strengthening the owner-dog relationship through a more positive approach. Our emphasis is on teaching the proper behaviours and praising them. By emphasising on what your dog is doing properly and enabling him to realise what that is, you get your dog’s cooperation and train him to want to please you. We have discovered that this positive dog training strategy creates trust, higher skills acquisition retention, and a far stronger bond than correction-based methods.
We provide a thorough and creative dog training syllabus as the Life Skills Levels Program is designed to better meet people’s individual needs and allow each dog the time he needs to learn. Our life skills levels program not only teaches practical pet dog training that every dog needs to know and dog socialization with a big dose of fun thrown in but also skills that are needed to build an enthusiastic learner throughout the dog's lifespan.
Our positive dog training methods are the creation of clear understanding, providing dog and handler with a relationship of powerful communication with positive motivational tactics that produce dogs that succeed in obedience both at home and in the obedience ring.
Our teaching methods given develop and cultivate dogs' cognitive capacities understanding that dogs learn by trial and error. We encourage dogs by removing correction from incorrect replies as a result, the dogs do not fear failure and are taught to exercise options in a quest for the correct desirable behaviour as dogs train.
Knowing how devoted, trusting, and hardworking a dog can be, it seems tragically simplistic for people to think that the only way to persuade the dog to execute simple obedience tasks is to either bribe him with food every time or repeatedly push him with corrections. What has happened to the bond with man's greatest friend in dog obedience training? Do dogs today no longer seek to please? We believe the fault rests with the trainer who does not take time to create a bond with their pets before and throughout training. A sound working relationship is built on trust, honesty, and mutual respect. The dog over time learns to entirely trust his trainer and vice versa
