Puppy School Training
We help you bridge that communication gap by teaching you how to observe your puppy’s behaviour and understand what is going through their mind! These insights give you a great head start in the first year with your new puppy and will help you lay a clear and solid foundation for you to train and form a lifelong bond!
Adult Dog Training
Undesirable behavioural traits can be corrected once you have a better understanding of why your dog is behaving a particular way and then applying the appropriate training program to correct it. We will not only help you correct behaviour issues but give you the know-how, skills, and confidence to stop any future problems developing and to create some new positive ones as well!

This is Oden. What I did with Oden is take him to the most challenging place for a reactive dog, the dog beach. And made him realize that actually, it is a fun place to be. Where the humans and the dogs are just having fun and not to be worried about and the run on the beach is the ultimate reward. I am reshaping his perception of the world from scary to fun.
reactivity. I used the Halti to control him first then to build a trust relationship during a short walk.
I then needed to increase his trust in me, make him understand that I’m able to control the world around us and that he doesn’t need to be reactive. Rebuild a positive image of the word around him, was done by a walk to the dog beach. I was proactive, asking to sit and look at me, ignore the dogs. Praises and rewards when not reactive and asking him to sit and behave and look at me, as soon as I was seeing any signs of him focusing on a passing dog. At the end of the session Harlem was walking pass other dogs, ignoring them. I did manage to reshape the way he was perceiving other dogs.
So Harlem did reach a new step in his progression. That is learning to talk dog. At this stage he kind of knows now that dogs are not a threat. So, under strict supervision and with a muzzle on his face in case of miscommunication, he is facing the pack today. We starting with a pack walk to make him feel that he is part of that pack. That is 3 walkers with 5 dogs each. At the end of the walk he enters in the daycare with positive attitude as most of those dogs were with him on the walk.
Not bad for a first day. Harlem will probably never really mix with other dogs, wrestling and playing like most do in this daycare but at least he does know now that here, they are not a threat, that he can relax and do his own stuff.
