Dog Training is a many faceted thing. Yolanda undertakes all aspects with a passion, backed by years of knowledge and experience. (see about)
Yolanda is an accomplished trainer with experience in Domestic Obedience, Competitive Obedience, Agility, Tracking, and RallyO' and Trick dog training.
All training works from a reinforcement perspective. Dogs often need to be taught how to learn and positive training techniques are used for this.
Training and teaching with positive motivations is the way to achieve great results with your dog.
Training takes place in your home or at an other suitable location. This will be determined by the training you require. The duration is up to 2 hrs.
Loose Lead Walking
Does your dog have its own walk agenda and pull on the lead?
Let us help to make your dog a joy to walk. We can teach you how to get your dog to calmly sit when the lead goes on, how to be calm once the lead is on, and how to be calm when you both leave the house for a walk.
We also offer the option to train your dog to walk on a loose lead whilst you are at work.
Perhaps the most important cue to teach. Would you like your dog to come whenever you call it? Even in a dog park? Let us show you how.
Especially for dogs that need to learn to pay attention to you, or wait at the door, maybe to stop jumping up or learn other behaviours that make life easier for you.
Tricks to teach your Dog
You and your dog can impress a visitor. Would you like your dog to be able to 'play dead'. 'high 5', 'roll over', 'peek-a-boo', crawl...etc etc? Maybe you would like to teach your dog skills that can help you? i.e. Turn the lights off or on, ..open or close a door, ..maybe even help with the washing. Its all possible!
Should you have a dog that cant stop sniffing around its environment then this may be for you! We can teach your dog to find stuff! Keys, Credit Cards, Possums or even certain oils and essences should you wish to enter into competitions.
and there is so much more to explore once you get started. Your dog may astound you, given the time and input!
