Polite Paws Dog Training

(placeholder)

So your family is ready to get a dog but you have no idea about breeds or if an adult dog or puppy is most suitable for your situation. Your only experience with breeds is your neighbour or friends dog that you like, or you fell in love with the puppy at the petshop yesterday. If you buy a dog that is not suited in energy levels, trainability and sociability to your family, you will end up spending $$$ and years trying to change that dog into what you want which can have limited success.

With so many different dogs of different ages and breeds, why not get some assistance to find the perfect dog for your family to avoid this extra work? Often people have misconceptions about a breed because they met one that was awesome or they met one that was aggressive or barky or hyperactive. And let me tell you often people get a rude surprise when they buy a labrador because they think they are calm as they are guide dogs, a small breed dog because it will be easier to keep in their apartment, a staffy because it will be a confident guard dog who can be left in the yard or the latest designer poodle cross because it won’t shed.

Most training and behavioural problems are best addressed in the home to begin with, where the dog spends most of it’s time and is most comfortable. Consequently, it only makes sense to work on these problems here first, before trying to take them into a new environment. Dogs will usually behave differently when in a different home, park or any strange situation. Also as opposed to group classes where we are following a lesson plan, private sessions are tailed to suit your dog and your family. This sort of customised training is critical when working with behavioural issues as one size doesn't fit all.

Also sometimes there are reasons that people can't attend group classes, so training in your home is a more practical or convenient option. It is also critical when there are family considerations that impact on training of the dog and need to be addressed in a more customised way.

Examples of issues that could be addressed:

- Getting started with a new puppy

- Pulling on lead during walks

- Barking due to excitement and attention seeking

- Impolite Greetings

- Not coming when called

- Digging and destruction

- Separation Anxiety

- Welcoming a Baby to the Family

- Dog Aggression

- Reactivity to people or dogs when on lead

- Resource Guarding

- Conflict in Multi-dog or Mixed-animal households

If you are adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue group, chances are the dog has not had a full behaviour assessment to ensure that it is safe. And even to simply ensure that it is a suitable match for your family and other pets. If you adopt a dog that is not suited in energy levels, trainability and sociability to your family, you will end up spending $$$ trying to change that dog into what you want which will have limited success. With so many different dog in shelters and rescues around NSW, why not get the perfect dog for your family to avoid this?

If you are part of a rescue group, this assessment will allow you to correctly match the dog to potential adopters to avoid returns and give you piece of mind with dogs you are unsure about.

Features:

- 1 hour behaviour assessment per dog

(at the shelter, rescue or foster home)

- Written report sent to you following the assessment

- I will contact the rescue or shelter to oranganise approval to do the assesment

- Option to email your trainer as much as you need in the month following the consultation with further questions that may come up

- 10% off a puppy class, adult dog class or a private sesison package so you can get started on training your new addition

We differ from most adult dog obedience classes as we focus on teaching your dog how to be calm, focused, attentive and well mannered. No-one wants to stand in a row with 20 other owners trying to force your dogs to sit, drop, come & stay, while they bark and pull on their leads for an hour as they are too stressed to learn anything. Then they drag you home, barg through the front door to jump on everyone and eat your lunch off the kitchen bench while you take your shoes off. This is why we are different!

Our 7 week course will help you to teach them the manners you want them to learn, rather than all the fun feral things they will teach themselves. We focus on creating a calm environment perfect for learning, so you can teach your dog to make good choices so you don't have to tell them what to do forever. We aim that eventually their envronment and things happening around them will prompt all their awesome behaviour just like magic. Everyone who attends our classes comments on just how advanced the content is compared to previous training they have attended, but so simple that even the youngest members of the family can learn!

Features:

- 8 hours total Tuition from an Experience Modern Trainer

- Set by Step Homework notes to take home and refer to

- All of the family are welcome to attend

- Option to email your trainer at any time with further questions that may come up

- Chance to trial training equipment like harnesses and halters before purchasing, so you can find the perfect option for your dog.

- Weekly access to Natural Aussie Training Treats & Chews. As well as the best toys, harnesses & training supplies on the market delivered at class for the best prices around.
