From walking a range of breeds of dogs as well as owning a very prey driven, stubborn Siberian Husky I wanted to put my dog training skills to practice. I found Absolute Dogs just before getting Skye and I would not train any other way.
I am a games based concept trainer, this means I use concepts such as proximity, confidence, grit and optimism which make up part of their personality to train the dogs. For example, proximity games which help with your dog wanting to stay close to you will improve behaviours like pulling on a lead, going too far ahead on your walks, no recall, or chasing anything that moves. The list goes on! It's an upcoming way to train- we will focus on a dog that wants to work for you, a desire to be with you and this is all through fun games to play with your dog. You will end up being the best thing in your dog's life and environment, not the other dog in the park, not the squirrel that's just ran across your path and not the exciting rabbit with an enticing bushy tail.
Online training Consults £30
This is a great option for when you can't leave the house but you are in need of dog training still. There are different options for communication; video call, phone, filmed video, pictures and email we can get in touch and discuss your struggles and I can go through some training strategies and games that can help with your struggles.
I am able to send you videos of the strategies that I would suggest to help with understanding and actually show you that it works! An overview and program will be sent to you following our call and support can be given via phone or email.
Extensive struggles may need more training and support so time may need adding.
