Dog Training and Behaviour Services
Relationship based dog training strives to meet the needs of both the human and the dog. It is an emphatic approach of taking into account the dog’s point of view. However, there are times, when the dog’s desires cannot be considered. For example, if a dog wants to chase a cat across the road, obviously he or she cannot be allowed to do this for his/her own safety. That said, I can still focus on making him or her happy and compliment rather than the old approach of making him or her sorry he/she didn’t.
“Such short little lives our dogs have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is breath taking how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
I train any breed, any age, any problem and puppies.
Are you frustrated or desperate when dealing with your dog’s inappropriate, shameful or destructive behaviours? My simple to follow, natural, dog friendly training techniques focus on developing a positive relationship between owner and dog to form a lasting poignant bond based on respect and trust.
My training embraces the same communication methods, voice tone and body language, that dogs follow as part of their instinctual mentality. I attend your home at a time convenient to everyone, so in your household.
Rock Villa Canine Care’s dog training approach can help owners establish control of their dog without treats or the need for harsh punishment. During the first session, most owners see dramatic improvements in their dog’s behaviour.
Setting your dog up to succeed
By looking deeper into a dog’s emotional state and considering its emotions helps us to understand why a behavioural problem occurs and where the roots of it lie. The old saying, ‘never judge a book by its cover’ applies well when we begin to look at behaviour in depth, because it is generally what lies beneath the presenting behaviour that is the root cause of a problem. For example, the roots of aggression may lie in fear, whilst separation anxiety can be linked to insecurity.
Communication between the human and canine species can disintegrate especially for those who are experiencing difficulty in understanding each other. This does not mean either of you are dealing with things badly; it may simply mean there is a lack of communication between you and a language barrier. Learning to read your dog and interpret its behaviour is a very useful tool for any dog owner and will enable you to live a more agreeable way together.
If you are considering getting a dog, then one of the most important things to consider is breed characteristics. Choosing a dog or breed that suits your lifestyle will mean you are best placed to meet your dog’s needs and so well matched, rather than choosing a dog because it looks adorable or you feel sorry for it.
In training, finding methods to use that improve motivation in both people and dogs accelerates pleasure which increases learning. As a result of this you can forge a positive outcome where success breeds success leading to an ever increasing upward trend.
