Training steps involved in your dog's learning:
1st stage: Teaching in Positive Reinforcement/ Reward base
Before you can expect your dog to complete a command, The dog must learn exactly what the command means and what is being asked of the dog. This is achieved by giving the dog a positive motivating experience.
2nd stage: Training Phase
Once your dog understands and has been taught how to do an exercise, it must then be trained over and over until it becomes a habit. Dogs learn through repetition, motivation and praise, so when the command is given the dog completes the task every time and gently corrected if the command isn't carried out correctly.
3rd stage: Distraction phase
Once your dog has completed the training phase and is well trained, distraction work is applied by tempting or distracting during exercises. Examples of this are: The dog must not move from the stay command with distraction put in place ie: tennis ball rolled past, another person enters the training area etc.
4th stage: Final Phase
Your dog is now your best friend, happy, confident, controlled and a pleasure to have. You will be the envy of the neighbours and your friends. The problems of the past are no longer. Imagine no more jumping on you, not getting dragged down the road, your dog not running away and no more nuisance barking! Imagine the smile on your face!
With each program you receive a guarantee for the life-time of your dog. Refresher courses will be given free of charge as necessary.
