Chances are, you’re looking for help because your dog has an unwanted or multiple unwanted behaviours. Every time your dog has opportunity to practice this bad behaviour, it gets stronger, this is what we refer to as a ‘behavioural bank account’. The first step of behaviour modification is blocking our dog’s ability to deposit into this bank account. The next step is to then open a new bank account of an alternate behaviour. Until the alternate bank account has greater equity than the old, the unwanted behaviour will still exist.
Sometimes, real life situations and environments don’t allow us to close that old unwanted bank account. Our training facility allows us to control and manage the environment to the point that we can almost immediately close the old bank account and start making deposits into the new. We then replicate the training in as many different environments as possible such as cafe’s, parks, train stations, beer gardens, shopping centres etc etc. This ensures your dog understands what they’ve been taught even under high distraction, real life situations.
Once the residential training comes to end your dog should have be out of the red and into the black ready for you to take the reigns and start your training journey with a clean slate. As well as behaviour modification the stay will include:
Lead Manners / Reliable Sit / Place Command / Crate Training / Recall / Controlled Play
We offer short term and long-term residential stays and have a curriculum for each; however, we can also offer custom length courses to fit around your schedule or holidays.
