Dog Training Market Harborough

Watch my Chops Dog Training in Market Harborough offers a range of options for you and your pet.

Here at Watch my Chops, we are proud to offer professional, reward-based dog training in Market Harborough and the surrounding area. We have a wide range of courses available, ensuring that we will have options for everyone. We employ a force free system which we believe is the best way to reinforce the relationship between you and your pet. It teaches correct behaviour at the same time as teaching manners, whilst also giving pets a chance to socialise and become used to new situations. We’re highly specialised and have lots of hands-on experience, so we can tailor our knowledge to you and your needs. There are two main types of class on offer – group sessions and one-2-one sessions. This gives you a choice about how you want to learn, and it means that we can offer training for a range of budgets.

Dog Training Success Using Positive Reinforcement

Clicker training is proven to work, and its success lies in the ability it has to communicate clearly with your pet. Correct behaviour is marked by a click followed by a treat, which is a positive way of reinforcing the behaviour that you want. You can begin to use the clicker less and less as your pet learns and repeats their good behaviour.

Our methods are based on those of Karen Pryor, and we are proud to be a certified training partner. Karen Pryor first implemented the clicker method in the 1960s, and as a top trainer and scientific behaviourist, her methods still achieve high success to this day. Therefore, if you’re searching for dog training in Market Harborough, you need look no further – we can help. We understand that different needs arise, based on all kinds of factors including breed, age and experience. That’s why we have specific classes for puppies and for older dogs, with varying levels of experience already under their belts. They’re a brilliant way for your pet to socialise, especially when they’re still young, as this will get them used to interaction and will teach them how to behave around others of their species. However, if you want to undertake courses at a specific time to suit you, one-2-one is the ideal option. These are also a perfect way to begin educating your new puppy if they’re still waiting for all of their vaccinations.

Market Harborough Dog Training Classes to Suit You

The clicker method can be used for any dog, at any age. It works by reinforcing good behaviour in a positive manner, which builds the relationship between owner and pet. Classes are as fun as they are useful, giving you new ways of interacting with your pet and making the time you spend with them even more enjoyable. Whilst the clicker method on its own is highly successful, having a knowledgeable trainer on hand to offer you extra support and advice is invaluable. They understand behaviours, and can give individual advice and practical tips which help to establish mutual respect between you and your pet. Experienced Watch My Chops owner Liliana was the first to offer dog training in Market Harborough the Karen Pryor way – she was the original certified partner for the area. If you’d like to find out more, or want to book onto one of our classes in the Market Harborough area, give us a call on 07858 752115 or email us here.

Why We Were Contacted?

Stephanie contacted us for a one 2 one session, after she recently adopted Benji, a three year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Benji’s previous owners had spoilt him a little bit too much and he never learnt to work to earn a reinforcer (reward). He is a very laid back little guy with a fantastic temperament. Stephanie just wanted him to be a happy chap but with a couple of basics, especially a solid recall, so she could let him off the lead in the future.

Why We Were Contacted?

We were contacted by Charlotte to give some advice on a couple of puppy issues and putting some basic training into place for very cute 14 week old Staffie, Nico. Charlotte’s main concern was the biting and nipping, and how to deal with it in an appropriate and efficient manner. She also wanted Nico to listen to her more when doing basic training, and work on his recall to make sure that she could trust him when out and about.

Why We Were Contacted?

Hayley contacted is us originally to enrol her 5 months old Cockapoo Amber into our Junior/Adult Beginners course, but due to work commitment, it would have been quite difficult for her to attend all the sessions, so we decided to go down the route of a one 2 one session. All Hayley wanted was for her dog to have manners and be a well behaved, happy dog.
