  • What tools do you use? - Our toolbox is full of different tools, and we'll use the ones that works best for you and your dog. These tools includes, but are not limited to; Our body, physical touch, praise, food, slip leads, flat buckle collars, prong collars, remote training collars, muzzles, martingale collars, pet convincers (compressed air)

  • Wait, hang on a minute, prong collars? Aren't they cruel? - To many people's surprise, the prong collar is designed to be a safer training tool than any choking collar, such as the slip lead or choke collar, by distributing the pressure all around the dogs neck rather than at the sensitive trachea and larynx area and also by being unable to actually choke a dog. While they may look horrible, It's just a tool, and any tool that are misused can cause harm. Used properly, we've found that they are the safest, most humane and quickest way to communicate with a dog, which causes less physical stress on both dog and owner. 

  • Remote collars? You mean shock collars?? - Today's modern E-collars are nothing like the ones of the old days. The remote training collars of today is actually a very gentle communication tool, something that helps you give clear instructions to your dog, even over great distances. It utilises the same technology as a TENS machine that a physiotherapist use. When introduced, conditioned and trained with properly, it will give your dog even more freedom. We specialise in low level, communication style E-collar training and we only use professional equipment. We do not accept or use any other E-collars than those from E-collar Technologies or Dogtra.

  • Will I get to visit my dog while it's with you? - More often than not, a visit from the owners can prove counter-productive to the dogs progression in training and rehabilitation, so we only allow for visitation during a go home training session. We will provide updates once per week and your dog may show up on social media. And always bear in mind that no news, are good news :) 

  • What guarantee can you give me in terms of success of training once I bring my dog back home? - Our aim and purpose is to give both owners and their dog the very best chance of success when the dog comes home after a program. This includes giving the owners a realistic view on what to expect and how to manage those expectations. When the dog goes home it will be coming back into a relationship and to rules, as they knew it when they left, that may have been reinforced for many years. The dog will most likely try to live by the old rules, or test the new ones at some point. This is why we spend a lot of time making sure that the owners are as prepared as can be, that they are committed and feel confident about the changes and that they understand why and how. 

  • I've been to many classes and used other trainers before, with no result, what makes you different? - Whereas most available training focuses on treats, redirecting, managing a behaviour or adding a behaviour, we focus on changing the state of mind of the dog and eliminating bad behaviours. Using high value treats or rewards etc. are good when it comes to adding a behaviour or get a dog in an exited state of mind, but not so much when you have a reactive or aggressive dog, where you want to promote calmness. Our aim is to cultivate new habits, make the dogs able to make better choices in life and to be able to co-exist with their family in a calm and safe manner.
