The methods used in our Sydney dog training
school are positive, fun for both you and your dog and
reward-based... and no, reward-based training doesn't mean that you're bribing
your dog to do what you ask or that you'll need to use rewards forever, every
time you train! Reward-based training is simply motivational, no harsh methods
Our training is based on rewarding the desired behaviour and motivating your dog
so that he will enjoy the training sessions. Also a motivated, stimulated dog is
likely to be a happier dog who is eager to learn and who will enjoy training
because it invigorates his mind. Training should never be frustrating or a chore
- it should ALWAYS be fun for both you and your dog.
Reward-based training has been used with great success for many years when
managing and training wild or exotic animals, but has only recently been applied
to dog training. Now, many forward-thinking trainers are using these methods
with great results.
And rewards are not always food. They can take many forms - your dog's favourite
toy, favourite food or even a game, and are simply a way to motivate your dog.
Generally speaking, you wouldn't go to work if you didn't get paid, would you?
What we do
We can show you a variety of simple training methods that will have you
achieving your training goals effectively and fast!
Behavioural Strategies - For the problem dog or the dog with bad manners!
What is behavioural training?
Behavioural training teaches your dog how to act and behave in an appropriate
manner within the family unit. Most of us simply want a dog who can be calm in
the house, doesn't destroy the garden and doesn't jump up on visitors,
particularly children or grandma!
Behavioural training can achieve this! By implementing some simple control
exercise and setting up structured guidelines and house rules for your dog to
follow, that are both specific and consistent, you will be able to better manage
him and so have the tools to develop him into a well-behaved and happy canine
We visit you and your dog at home over two 1 hour sessions that are scheduled
1 to 2 weeks apart:
Obedience Techniques and Training
We ask LOTS of questions! We assess your dog, where he's at, how he
is, what he's doing, and what you'd like him to be doing! We show you some basic
control exercises that are quick and fun for all and will set the foundation for
Session 2. At this point, you will already be seeing results!
We visit you again and provide you with a comprehensive written
program that targets the specific problem, provides you with methods to resolve
it and provides suggestions for associated training. We also SHOW you how to
implement the various training exercises we've suggested.
