Training for Puppies and Adult dogs.
Tanya is often asked whether a dog training class would be suitable for a particular dog. While most dogs do well in a group environment, others especially those that have problems or are nervous or fearful tend not to flourish at classes. That is not to say that they can never go to a class, but that a class environment is not currently suitable. One to one training can be a valuable experience for both owner and their dog.
It can also be useful to start training your puppy in a quiet location, with one trainer to give you and your puppy their sole attention. This provides you and your puppy with a great start to get the basics under your belt. Of course you may choose at a later date to train in a class environment, but you will have a head start, as you will have already learnt to communicate effectively with your dog and will be better equipped to train alongside the distractions of a class environment. Tanya also provides advice on any other problem you may be experiencing with your puppy, such as housetraining problems, mouthing behaviour, over excitement for example.
