In our dog training courses, we teach the dogs valuable life skills by playing games. Games are essential for healthy development. We shape the dogs' brain by playing fun 3 minute games. Games based concept training teaches your dog valuable life skills, such as impulse control, focus, confidence, optimism, engagement and calmness.
We use fun, rewards and praise to teach the dogs great life skills, rather than force, fear or punishment. There's no need to use something that your dog doesn't like in order to get their compliance, such as kneeing them in the chest to stop them jumping up. We help you understand how your dog thinks and feels, so that you can feel more empathy for them.
The dog training world has come a long way in the last 20 years and we now know that dogs learn in the same way as humans do and that they have mental capabilities and emotional intelligence equivalent to a 2.5-year-old child. We are continually educating ourselves so that we can provide the most up to date training methods based on scientific research.
