A variety of classes are provided at the Pet Behaviour Centre, from puppy ‘rite’ start classes to advanced clicker training classes. Whatever class you choose you can rest assured that, not only will you be taught how to train your dog to carry out basic commands you will gain a deeper understanding of what motivates your dog and how he learns all of which will lead to a better and more fulfilling relationship with your pet.
We also provide:
- Rehabilitation sessions for dogs that demonstrate aggressive behaviour towards other dogs or people. A behaviour consultation will be necessary prior to taking up these sessions.
- Student training for pet dog owners who would like to know more about dogs and dog behaviour.
- The APDT Good Companion Awards
- The Kennel Club Good Dog Citizen Awards for pet dog and those for showing (enquiries welcome from breed clubs).
ALL our trainers are fully qualified Coape Association Behaviourists and Trainers (CAPBT) AND members of The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), so you can rest assured that no aversive or cruel methods of training will ever be used.
Behaviour and Training
Please be sure to check out the credentials of anyone you consider engaging to deal with your dogs training or behaviour. Hands-on experience is a necessary requirement to carry out work of this nature. But a scientific knowledge is also required and is critical to the success of helping you to understand your pet’s motivations for his behaviour and what to do about it. Look for someone who is qualified to help you or who is referred to you by your veterinary surgeon.
At The Pet Behaviour Centre we do not use some of the methods that you may see on TV. We will not squirt your dog with water, throw water bombs at him, blast him with loud noises, roll him over into submission, hit him, kick him, hang him by the collar or ignore him endlessly, etc. this kind of treatment has no place in training or behaviour work and is cruel.
As well as the Association of Pet Dog Trainer Awards, Students can also work towards the kennel Club Good Dog Citizen Scheme awards. Breed clubs and individuals can participate. Contact us for more information.
