Adult Dog Training

Dog training classes are crucial for every dog, no matter their age. Your adult dog can use these classes to learn valuable skills and also help you form a deeper bond and relationship. Your dog will learn how to interact positively with other dogs and people, basic training skills, and better manage its behaviour. Adult dog training exercises will help your dog build confidence and be happier.

Puppy Dog Training

Puppy dog training is a fantastic way to establish good social behaviour, skills, and obedience in your dog at a tender age. Your dog will learn basic obedience training, including learning how to listen to basic commands, as well as learn how to interact with other dogs and people. Dog owners would also learn how to care for their pups, as well as the best methods for creating a lifelong bond with their dogs.

Walk Training

The walk training programme is designed for both the dog and the owner. This involves teaching your dog how to walk in public, including knowing when to slow down and when to move or stay. It is also designed to teach owners how to take control and establish dominance during walks with their dogs. This programme also teaches your dog how to behave when it is unleashed.

Toilet Training

Toilet training is one of the most important aspects of training your dog, especially a puppy. Being with a dog that goes to the bathroom anywhere and at any time can be very frustrating. You can eliminate this problem by toilet training your dog using positive reinforcement techniques. Super Smart Dog Training Academy in Gold Coast, has some of the best dog potty trainers to ensure your dog learns when and where to go to the bathroom.

Responding To Name

Puppies, and older dogs as well, who are new to your home, need a lot of training to help them assimilate and adapt better. Part of that training involves learning how to be attentive. And how do you get your dog’s attention? By calling their names. Teaching your dog to know its name and how to respond to it is a good way to keep them safe and communicate with it. It takes some time to build that focus, especially if you have very energetic dogs and get distracted easily by things in the environment. We will teach you some positive reinforcement training methods to help your dog learn how to respond to their name.

Destroying Or Chewing Things

It’s normal for dogs to chew on objects. In fact, chewing is healthy for dogs. Puppies chew to relieve pain as the teeth, and older dogs chew to keep their teeth and jaws clean and strong. However, your dog can quickly learn to chew inappropriate items with little to no training. Super Smart in Gold Coast, teaches your dogs how to learn what’s okay and what’s not okay to chew.

Bark Training

Many dog owners say that continuous barking is one of the common issues they have with their dogs. Unfortunately, there are limited ways of understanding what your dog may be trying to communicate with you when it barks. Although you may be able to figure it out occasionally, it can be challenging most of the time. If your dog’s barking becomes excessive, it will need to go under a behavioural analysis to identify why it is barking and if there are any solutions. Bark training will help control unnecessary barking and teach your dog how to control its bark.

Aggressive Dogs

Do you have a dog that refuses to listen to any command? Is its behaviour inconsistent and volatile? Does your dog display any aggressive tendencies? If yes, you don’t need to worry. We can help train your aggressive canine. Our obedience program ensures that every dog and owner has a tailor-made programme that addresses their specific needs and meets their goals. We will teach your dog how to behave the Super Smart way.

Bite Training

We provide bite training services at Super Smart Dog Training Academy in Gold Coast. This training simply means teaching your dog how to bite, usually on command. We also train dogs to bite when they are faced with particular threats. Bite work training is most useful for security dogs, including police dogs, domestic and commercial guard dogs, and dogs that compete in canine sports. We can start training your dog when they are as young as 8 weeks old. But you can bring your dog in at any age for bite work training. However, that would depend on factors such as breed, confidence level, drive to chase, and behaviour. If your dog is energetic and enjoys activities involving a lot of chasing, then it is an ideal candidate for bite work training. That’s because its high energy makes them more willing to enjoy the training.

Every single time a people-aggressive dog launches towards a human and that human retreats in fear, the unwanted behavior is reinforced.

Have your dog trained as soon as possible.
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.
