POPULAR EBOOK: TRAINING MATTERS EBOOK
Take the confusion out of dog training. Speak the language of your dog.
Looking for information online can be so confusing as there is so much conflicting advice. In Training Matters, we explain not just the how of dog training, but the why, so that you know what to do and why to do it this way.
Are you experiencing any of the following?
→ Does your dog drags you down the street on your walks, nearly tearing your arm from it’s socket?
→ Or your dog is good at home but barks and lunges at other dogs on walks?
→ Is your dog or new pup howling when you leave or keeping you up at night?
→ Do you just wish your dog would listen to you, even around distractions?
For A Dog That Is:
Where We Specialise
Do you have a new puppy that is cute but driving you crazy? Toilet training, separation anxiety, chewing and destruction, howling…. The list goes on! What if puppy raising was made easy with simple programs you could follow at home and one on one support so that puppy raising became fun again and you knew that you were raising your puppy the right way? This is where we come in.
Distance Learning Programs
We want to help you no matter where you live. We conduct distance learning programs over Skype and send you video lessons and homework to keep you on track to get the desired result you’re looking for. If you’d like to apply for distance learning, fill in the contact form
Aggression Towards Other Dogs
Are you frustrated that you can’t just go on a walk without the pulling, barking, lunging and even screaming whenever your dog sees another dog? Would you prefer to be able to enjoy a relaxed walk together on a loose lead no matter what your dog sees? It’s possible! Being the most common issue we see, we have a lot of experience turning your walk from a nightmare into a dream.
Chewing and Destruction
Does your dog rip up your house or yard whenever you’re not around? We can help you be able to trust your dog alone so that you no longer have to worry about coming home to what looks like a crime scene. Whether you have a puppy chewing problem or some major destruction being caused by an adult dog, we can come to you and work out why it’s happening and how to fix it.
