Raising a dog can be like raising a child – like any other family member, your pet needs to know what is expected of it. Unlike a human child however, you can’t simply reason or negotiate with your dog. As a pet parent, authority and control, plus clear communication will be the hallmarks of raising a happy, calm and well mannered family pet.

As soon as you introduce a new dog into the family you should establish a pecking order with you, your spouse and your children above your pet. You also need to take time out to think about how you want your adult dog to behave and implement training strategies with constant repetition to educate it (if you do not want your dog on the couch as an adult, then don’t allow it as a puppy). All members of the family, including children and visitors should treat your dog the same or it will just get confused and the training process will take longer.

It is never too early or too late to develop great behaviour in your furry family member.

Many clients who have experienced our unique brand of pet minding and dog walking & socialization have been delighted in the change for the better in their pets. This is due to a number of things including, gentle but firm discipline, applied and practiced as part of all our services. Testimonial
