Common Questions asked by Dog Owners
- How old does my dog have to be before training for obedience?
We start training your dog at the age of 8 months.
- If my dog is an adult can you still do obedience?
- Till what age can you still train my dog?
We don't have an age limit.
- What breed does my dog have to be?
We train all breeds.
- How long does it take to train my dog?
It takes us 20 days for obedience.
- Does my dog have to stay at the centre for the training?
- Do I have to be with my dog?
No. You only need one to two hours at the most to spend with your dog on the day that you pick it up to learn how to control it and to make sure that the dog listens to you and follows your orders. You will be instructed by one of our trainers on how to give your dog the proper hand signals and verbal commands.
- Do you correct problem dogs?
- If my dog is easily led by other dogs or people, or is aggressive to other dogs or people can you help?
Certainly, your dog will be fully under control.
- Will you stop my dog from jumping up on people? Taking washing off the line? Digging Holes? Chasing other dogs or cats? Motor bikes, cars etc.?
Yes! You will find that once your dog is trained it will be a pleasure to be a dog owner and you will be wondering why you waited so long before you had it trained.
- Would you be able to train my dog not to take baits and to eat food only from its own bowl?
Most certainly. This is very important as we still have some pretty cruel people in our society that are beyond help. But if we protect our pet friend, he will be at no risk. It's a small price for his life.
- Will my dog ever forget the training that you give it? and will I have to keep it up every day?
No! Your dog will never forget even if you don't work him for months but we would advise you to take him for walks regularly as they love to be worked. Plus, after the training you will enjoy him so much more that it will be a pleasure for both of you and not just for the dog. If time is a problem maybe get the kids to walk him. You wont have to worry about them being dragged by the dog anymore.
- Do you guarantee that my dog will be trained after being at your centre?
And when we get him home will he still listen to us?
Yes! Our work is all guaranteed. When you get your dog home he still must work for you, that is why we spend time with you at the centre, to explain to you, and most important, teach you how to control your dog. However, if you are not sure about something, you know that you can call us anytime and we will be more than pleased to help you at no extra cost.
