Finding a Good Dog Training Class
All dogs benefit from a good dog training class whether your dog is a puppy or an older dog and whether you, as the owner, are experienced or not. A well trained dog is more acceptable in society and will consequently be a greater pleasure to its owner and family. By attending a suitable dog training class, your dog will learn new skills in a controlled environment and the experience will enhance your relationship. But...how do you find the right training class?
Here’s a few tips...
1) Always visit a potential dog training class and see what is going on before you take your dog.
2) Make sure the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. A lot of barking dogs is a sign of stress!
3) Check that the trainer uses kind methods and equipment. Check chain, prong collars and slip collars are definitely not appropriate.
4) A lot of shouting is unnecessary and is a sign of poor training.
5) Make sure that the trainer is friendly and approachable and understands the needs of individual dogs.
6) Check the size of the class and the number of assistants. Can the trainer keep tabs on everyone?
7) Participants should be looking relaxed and happy and having fun.
8) Dogs that are aggressive or nervous have behavioural issues and are not suitable for a dog training class. These animals need individual assessment with a behaviourist before attending a normal class.
