Training Tips

Cage (or crate) training is ideal for just about every new pup and it even works for most adult dogs.  Proper crate training is neither cruel nor unpleasant for the dog. In fact, a properly crate-trained dog feels happy, secure and comfortable in his cage. In the wild, dogs and wolves need a den or hide-a-way for their home. Except for hunting, eliminating, playtime and protection, they spend hours sleeping, eating or relaxing in their den. Most well-trained, contented house pets spend most of the day curled up on a chesterfield or under a bed.  The cage-trained dog is simply taught that his bed is in the cage.

Obedience training
is based on simple but often overlooked facts. Dogs learn from clearly defined good and bad experiences.  Punishments and rewards show dogs the consequences of unfavourable and favourable actions. Through conditioning, they avoid unpleasant corrections and strive for praise.  Through consistent, controlled experiences, dogs learn subordination to, and respect for their masters.  With dogs you must be firm, strict, but never unfair.  You treat a dog like you want to be treated yourself. There are no “bad” dogs, just undisciplined ones resulting from inexperienced or misinformed owners. A thorough knowledge of obedience training techniques, and a smattering of canine psychology will help owners make obedience-trained dogs the rule instead of the exception.
