If you are having trouble with your dog’s behaviour, you might be considering getting professional help. Behavioural dog trainers can help you get results with in-home behaviour training or group obedience classes. If you are unsure which service is better suited to your dog’s needs, here are a few things you should consider.
What services can I choose from?
In-home dog behaviour training is useful for addressing specific or complex behavioural problems, such as excessive barking, aggression, pulling on lead, and separation anxiety. The behavioural therapist will assess the dog in its home environment and develop an individual training program specific to your dog and your family.
Group obedience training aims to teach your dog to follow specific commands such as sit, drop, stay, etc. in a controlled environment with the distractions of other dogs and people around. This also continues the socialisation experience for your dog, and will assist you in maintaining the leadership role in your relationship.
