Watch my Chops Dog Training provides reward-based programme for any breed and age of dog.
Finding dog training in Wellingborough to suit you and your pet is incredibly important. Owning a badly behaved pet that doesn’t follow commands makes ownership a stressful experience, especially when out in public where there are other people and animals to worry about. A well-trained dog makes for the best kind of pet because you can establish a relationship based on trust and form a strong bond with one another. Watch My Chops believe in the importance of training through positive reinforcement. This focuses on what a dog can do rather than what they can’t, rewarding positive responses as opposed to punishing unwanted behaviour. Too many training schools still use archaic methods which are negative and harsh in their delivery. The best kind of dog training doesn’t just teach your pet how to behave - it builds on the connection between pet and owner, showing your dog how to have manners and creating mutual respect. In order to achieve this, we use the clicker method and are certified training partners of the Karen Pryor Academy. This method has been used since the 1960s, and its scientific foundations achieve a great deal of success.
Training Your Dog the Positive Way
Our dedicated Watch My Chops trainers love their jobs and love what they do. Between us, we have a wealth of experience with many different breeds; we work to understand each individual animal, their behaviour and how best to teach them. It’s incredibly rewarding to see dogs and owners alike having a great time in each other’s company, learning in a proactive and friendly environment. The training methods which we use are all about communication. The clicker method sees good pet behaviour marked with a consistent sound – a click from your clicker device – and a treat, to show your dog that this is correct. Karen Pryor was a skilled trainer and scientific behaviourist, and saw great success when she first implemented the method. It trains your dog in how to behave without subduing their individual personality. There are plenty of significant benefits to bringing your pet along to our classes. We have various groups, providing dog training in Daventry which is dependent on age and experience. Classes are also a good opportunity for dogs to socialise with others of their species, reassuring you that they’re used to other animals and know how to behave around them. If you’re busy, or want to work on specific individual training techniques, there is also the option of one-to-one classes. These are also ideal if you want to give your new puppy a head-start before they’ve completed their course of vaccinations.
Wellingborough Dog Training with Success
At Watch my Chops, we feel very strongly that the methods we employ are appropriate for everyone. Our customers agree – they keep on coming back because our classes achieve excellent results, as well as being great fun. Providing the right dog training in Wellingoborough and the surrounding areas is very important to us, and we want to do what’s right for you and your pet. Classes are an important part in your journey towards developing the best possible relationship with your pet, in a way which is enjoyable and rewarding. Whilst much of what we teach you can be practised at home, it’s important to have a trainer on hand who can develop your dog’s progress further. Trainers understand various behaviours, so they can advise on how to form good habits and make the clicker method work for you.
