Cheshire Dog Services Ltd

Cheshire

‘19 Certificate of Excellence

Cheshire Dog Services ltd was set up with a passion to help make dog ownership the most fulfilling experience it can be. We'll prioritise Bark.com customers who want to get the most satisfaction from their dogs and for the dogs to have the best welfare. With this in mind, we offer a very professional dog walking service which runs alongside a highly regarded dog training service, Glyn is a member of The Guild of Dog Trainers. We believe that to enjoy your pooch, if your little one walks without pulling you, if they leave things alone when told and when out in the park, they come when they are called, you'll have a great time with them! We also deal with Behavioural issues like barking, jumping up, dog aggression etc as this can make it very difficult to live with a dog if you can't control the behaviour. Glyn is qualified holding a Diploma (merit pass) in Advanced Canine Behaviour from the esteemed British College of Canine Studies. We can take it one stage further with 1-2-1 training sessions from puppy age (they're never too young to learn) to mature dog. We offer a special Puppy Session for Bark.com customers if your puppy is still too young go out as much can be done. We can set up basic obedience which can then be developed into more advanced off lead obedience and recall, arguably the most important skill a dog can have when you're out in a park. Having trained everything from Yorkies & Miniature Dachshunds to Cockerpoo's & Labradors to Rottweilers & German Shepherds, we are well versed in most breeds.

What do you love most about your job?

Being able to help owners get the very best out of their little (or big) friends as there is nothing worse than making the decision to get a pup only to realise you don't know what they need, the direction they expect and how to help the little guys understand what is expected of them in order to fulfil and enrich their lives. Some of the reviews I've had have been very humbling, the gratitude shown by my clients underlines my decision to work with dogs and give owners the vision as to what they should expect from their pooch. Please call for a FREE consultation 07795 212042.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having trained dogs for many years and having had enough of a career I've been in for too many years, I felt a change was needed. Being able to work with dogs, a passion I've had for a long time means my work doesn't feel like work anymore! I also realised that far too many owners I spoke too had little knowledge about what to do with their dogs if they behaved inappropriately, or in general, just the level of obedience they expected but didn't know how to achieve. We seem to expect a dog just to slot into our lifestyles without any guidance so with help from us, we are enriching owners lives with their dogs. Please call for a FREE consultation 07795 212042

Why should our clients choose you?

I've come from a very high customer service industry so I know the level of service that is expected today from clients whatever business you're in.Please take a look at my BARK reviews and those on Google to see that I go the extra mile for clients, I take a very professional attitude to my work, whether its simply walking the dog (Lead only unless specified otherwise) or if its training & behaviour requirements be it from puppy to the more mature dogs.

I provide a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION whether it s for the walking service or for training, to get to understand your requirements, of course its also an opportunity to meet your loveable friend.

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).
