Jumping Up

Dogs who sit politely while they are waiting to be patted are dogs that everyone likes. Your friends also like the owners of these dogs better too. So, ho do you train your dog to sit instead of jumping up?

Classical conditioning

You get your car keys – your dog gets excited (or sad) as the case may be. That is the result of classical conditioning. It happens without our even thinking about it. But if we plan for it, we can use it to our advantage! Find out how.

Reactive dogs

Dogs that snap, growl and lunge (especially when on lead) are usually not vicious. They are usually anxious or frightened. If you have one of these dogs, you can help them.

Choosing a new puppy

A new puppy is one of the most wonderful things in the world. But puppies grow up and the kind of dog they become depends a lot on how you chose your puppy in the first place.

No Pain

It’s far easier to train a dog who feels confident that you will protect them, care for them well and provide fun and exercise. This means: inflict no pain, no force and no fear. There are easier and more successful ways to train a dog.

Best Dog Training basics

Observe your dog, manage your environment, ignore the behaviours you don’t like and reinforce the ones you do. These are the basics of successful dog training.
