Becoming a dog trainer for me is so much more than helping clients teach their dog a few behaviours. I want to help you develop a true relationship with your dog, through reward-based concept training. Seeing the joy this brings to families and their dogs, is so rewarding to me. I use games to make training not only fun for the dog but also for you. This game based method teaches the dog focus, calmness, optimism, self control, and confidence. All of these concepts lead to a well behaved dog, that you will proud of calling your companion.

Dog training with concept based games is so much fun for both you and your dog, that it hardly feels like training. Yet despite this, it will help you have an easy-to-live-with dog, that you will love taking on walks and generally be around. It will lead to your dog being calm in the house rather than causing chaos, and feeling that he needs to be put into a separate room when guests come home.
Using positive reinforcement means that puppy training can begin right away. The sooner you start the better - start your puppy off on the right paw. Because we do training at your home, you do not need to wait till your puppy has had its full set of vaccinations.
Training occurs in the comfort of your home, or park. During the initial consultation we determine what training is required (see various packages available) and work together to increase the bond between you and your dog, keeping it fun and informative. Training should ideally include all family members, and be consistent. This way the dog learns to bond to and listen to all family members and overall training becomes easier. Your homework is to practise what we learnt in class!
At B.A.R.K. Dog training Ltd we love working with you and your dog, making learning as easy and fun as possible. We use meaningful rewards to your dog (treats, toys, praise, affection, freedom), proven scientific training techniques, and we provide safe, humane and effective dog training. We work with all members of the family, to ensure that everyone is involved in training and having a great relationship with the dog.
At B.A.R.K. Dog Training Ltd we appreciate your business and we work hard to ensure you have a positive experience.
Getting a puppy is a huge family commitment, and doing your homework before you get your puppy is very important. It will ensure you know what to expect and how to best prepare yourselves for the new addition. B.A.R.K. offers a pre-puppy lesson to help you on your way
