My Training System

I want to create a HAPPY and CONFIDENT dog who is CORRECT in his work

 

  • When I train, it's all about having FUN with my dog

 

  • I use food and tug-toys in a Reward Based Training system

 

  • I find this format instantly develops clear communication with my dog

 

  • I also use structured play to build drive and/or relieve stress

 

  • This training system reinforces my pack leadership status

 

  • It also builds very high levels of respect from my dog towards me

 

  • My pack leadership rules always apply at home as well as when training

 

  • I make a plan of each training session before I start

 

  • This means I train what I can't do, I don't keep training what I can do

 

  • For me, repetition kills drive, I find variation builds concentration

 

  • I always remember the 1 Second Rule when training

 

  • I only train for as long as my dog can genuinely concentrate

 

  • I keep the session short, fun and very simple

 

  • Mistakes - I never blame my dog, I blame my communication skills
