Having previously worked in animal rescue Sarah has a wealth of experience at solving all types dog related problems. Sarah studied Animal Behaviour at Southampton University and keeps up to date with developments in dog behaviour and training. Fun With Dogs offer one to one dog training and behaviour modification services across Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, London, Dorset, West Sussex and Wiltshire. We use only positive, force free, reward based training and behaviour modification methods as these are scientifically proven to be the most effective. Fun With Dogs is a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild. We specialise in Bespoke Intensive Training Courses where a trainer will spend a week with you and your dog in your own home and local area, helping you to teach your dog basic training exercises or help your dog overcome a variety of behavioural problems. Having training in your own home and local area means we can deal with real life situations that might occur in your daily life, rather than the artificial training environment provided by traditional dog training classes, or board and train programmes where your dog is sent away for training. Our training is suitable for all dogs from 8 weeks of age upwards, we will tailor your sessions to suit you and your dog, and your lifestyle and needs. In addition we offer one to one training and behaviour sessions as a One Off Half or Full Day Session, a Weekend Package or as 3 Half Day Sessions spread across two weeks, which may be more suitable if you are unable to commit to a full week of intensive training with your dog. Fun With Dogs can help with any problem from housetraining, coming when called, loose lead walking, possessiveness over toys/food/objects/people, biting, chasing, aggression, fears, phobias, separation anxiety, boisterousness etc. Events - We run occasional fun events for all types of dogs, from Doggy Treasure Hunts and Challenge Run, Fun and Social Sessions to 1 day workshops on Loose Lead Walking, Recall Training, No Jumping etc.

Helping you to enjoy your dogs is what our job is all about. We work with both owners and dogs to resolve and understand any behavioural issues they may have, to help them feel more confident and secure and to give owners the confidence they need to train their dogs. Training dogs isn’t all about obedience, its about having a strong relationship with your dog whereby they want to work with you. We are all about having fun, and want owners to enjoy the experience as much as the dogs too. We work with a wide range of dogs and issues owners are having. We also train a lot of dogs for fun, to give them enriched lives, and in turn their owners. One of our most popular services we offer is Recreational Training, whereby your dog/puppy comes and spends wither 1/2 or a full day with us we work through a training/socialising or confidence building plan with them and let you know what we have worked on. We have a lot of regulars that use this service with us. Behaviour Consultations are required when we need to change the behaviour of the dog and when we need to work in conjunction with a vet to look at various options of diet changes, herbal medicines, or in some cases pharmacology, to help improve the dogs life. We put some management practices in place along with a training plan, we will also look to have regular catch ups to discuss their progress, as well as on-going support. 1-2-1 Consultations - For Training, Reactive Dogs and dogs that are aroused by the environment we offer 1-2-1 consultations here in our field, we discuss with you what could be going on and look to help you understand your dog in terms of body language, threshold, environments etc. We then work through with you what you are able to do to help your dog and reduce the behaviour or help to build their confidence. We also offer 1/2 hour social sessions with selected dogs to help your dogs to learn how to play confidently and politely with other dogs. We run a number of classes through-out the week, with 3 classes on a Saturday, regular Sunday classes, Monday and Wednesday night classes.

Applause for Paws Dog Training

Applause for Paws Dog Training

Force free group training classes for Puppies and adult dogs. Force free 1-2-1 Training for Puppies and adult dogs Training Methods We Use There are many different terms used to describe positive training techniques: positive reinforcement, reward-based, force-free etc.. What they all have in common is a shared belief that it is much safer, more effective, to teach our dogs using the concept that if you reward a behaviour you like, it is more likely that that behaviour will be repeated. If you ignore or redirect a behaviour you do not like, it is more likely that the behaviour will decrease. Combine this with the awareness that dogs are not wolves trying to dominate us, and therefore do not need to be controlled using dominance-based punishment techniques, and you have the recipe for our training beliefs We believe that enhancing your relationship with your dog and having fun go hand in hand

My name is Ian Mackay and I have been helping owners to resolve their dogs' behaviour problems since 2006. Dog Listening is not just a training method, it's a way of life. It really works. By giving your dog simple signals, he will be relaxed and a pleasure to own. He will be a dog you can take anywhere. If you live in or around the Hampshire area, I can help you to achieve that. Dog Listening is an amazingly effective, simple, gentle yet powerful way to improve your dog's behaviour without the use of force, domination or gadgets - whatever your lifestyle, the breed of dog, its gender or its age. If you are looking for dog training in the Hampshire area, Dog Listening provides a complete solution by showing him that his undesirable behaviour is unnecessary. He will become a pleasure to own - a calm, relaxed dog that you can take anywhere.
