I hold regular dog obedience training classes for puppies and older dogs in Gwynedd, North Wales. I am based between Dolgellau & Barmouth.
I provide group training sessions, and also one-to-one consultations at the owner's house or an agreed location.
Living with a dog should be fun and rewarding for both owner and dog. It is our responsibility to care for all their needs and to teach them in a humane, non threatening way. You and your dog will need to connect, learn to trust and respect each other and work together as a team.
Dogs need training, guidance and set boundaries. Here are 3 important reasons for training your dog:
1) You will have a well behaved dog that you can be proud to take anywhere.
2) Training work gives your dog very important mental workouts.
3) Training work with your dog strengthens the bond between you.
Teaching your dog is about being fair, consistent and patient. There is no place for threats, physical punishment or bullying tactics in dog training, these are out dated and unacceptable.
I use only positive, reward based methods of training and my goal is to help dog owners to communicate with, and understand their best friend and companion.
My name is Jan, I have lived with dogs and other animals ever since I can remember and enjoyed every minute of their company!.
