The reason Dog Training Adelaide    is still around after 13 years is because we are good at what we do.By all means visit other schools and compare a dog with six weeks training to one of ours. Websites can embellish trainers credibility and can exaggerate their achievements. Though dogs don’t lie.

Dog Training should be an enjoyable and rewarding way for you and your dog or puppy to learn new and useful skills.Using a common sense and a positive balanced approach you will be delighted with progress you and your dog will make. We will train ANY dog, regardless of size, shape, behaviour or severity. ALL dogs can improve, MOST dogs to a level you would never think possible. SOME dogs take a little longer.

Why haven’t we changed our main method of dog training? Results. Consistent, predictable, results. Why has so much controversy not diminished its popularity? Results. Consistent, predictable, results. Amidst the current (and politically correct) trend in Positive Reinforcement Only training systems, what protects and keeps viable our methods? Results. Consistent, predictable, results

About Us

Welcome to my passion. Dog Training is my passion. In over 13 years  my fervor hasn’t dwindled

Dog Training Adelaide is focused on promoting responsible dog ownership through education and training. We offer the opportunity for dog owners to socialise with other dog owners and also allow their dogs to adapt to having other dogs around.

We aim to help you train your dog so that he/she will be a great companion, a well behaved pet, and an enjoyable addition to your household. The training will help in all aspects of the dogs’s life, like going for a walk, greeting visitors at your home and behaving around other dogs people and distractions.

Without socialising and some basic training the dog may soon become an uncomfortable part of the family and a backyard addition that really serves no purpose and has a limited and unhappy existence.

If an owner is prepared to take the right steps in training their dog, they are more likely to walk the dog, take it on holidays and on outings and enjoy just how intelligent and useful it can be. What greater therapy than to hold your best friend and be loved unconditionally. To take your puppy to puppy class and introduce it to all the others, compare cute habits and wayward times, just must be very special.

We offer a range of training solutions, including puppy classes, obedience, problem dog assistance, home dog support and other services.

Our Ethos

Every dog that goes through our training classes is expected to pass it. There is no reason why a dog cannot achieve the particular level they are in. But there are many reasons that their owners will let their dog down.

It seems that many dog training schools are lowering their standards or breaking up classes into so many levels that a person could study for a doctorate degree before a dog could pass a basic class.Time and time again we have seen dogs come from other schools ,their owners telling me that they are in “level 4″ yet the dogs can’t sit drop stand or even walk on a loose lead properly.

Yes we have high expectations for you and your dog . Don’t you?

What is Balanced Dog Training

In it’s simplest form, Balanced Dog Training refers to any approach to dog training or behavior modification which involves the use of both reward based techniques, and aversive consequences. In other words, the trainer shows the dog that their choices and behaviors can result in either pleasant or unpleasant results

 

In this modern, balanced approach to training, we begin a dog’s education through the use of rewards. Dogs learn new behaviors through goal driven learning that is both enjoyable and effective. The dog is allowed to gain an understanding of the training exercises without concern about making a mistake. If and when more reliability is needed, unpleasant consequences are introduced into the training program in a careful and thought-out manner to ensure that we avoid the problems associated with the crude techniques of the past. One of the most significant advancements in this area was the realization that before we use any tool such as a training collar to “correct” a dog for disobedience, we first need to make sure that the dog has an opportunity to learn not only about the training exercise, but also about the tool, meaning the dog must learn that what we call “pressure” is something that they can control and avoid through their actions. Most commonly we do this first with a leash and training collar. Through this process the dog learns all the various situations in which pressure may be applied, and the various behaviors that they can rely on to remove that pressure, and this is all done with a low intensity so the dog has the opportunity to learn about the tools without any stress. After many repetitions the dogs begin to view the leash pressure as simply another piece of valuable information, which allows us to help them navigate the world and earn rewards and praise. Only once this has been accomplished do we then use the tool in a more motivating way as necessary, to prompt the dog into appropriate choices, or correct them for willful disobedience. This process not only helps us reduce the need for punishment, but also help to ensure that if punishment is applied that the dog knows exactly why it happened, and what they can do to avoid it in the future.

if this sounds a bit technical, well, that’s because it is. Good dog training, really good dog training is complex. The concept of punishment should not be approached carelessly, and the oversight of a qualified professional is always recommended. Although there may be other variations of this approach, this is modern balanced dog training as we apply it at All Breeds Dog Training Adelaide. It is a way of approaching dog training and behavior that is both fair and compassionate, while also creating real world reliability that is achievable for the everyday dog owner.
