Dog Trainers in Southampton

One of the hardest things about having a dog is training them; some breeds will pick up very quickly while other just never seem to get it. Using Bark to help find a dog trainer in Southampton is very straight-forward. First, you give us some information about your dog or puppy such as their breed, what the biggest problem you are facing is (biting, house training, etc.) and we find you a dog trainer in Southampton to suit your needs.
When you have a new puppy one of the best things to do is to join a puppy training class, this is a great way of training your new puppy as well as socialising him or her with other puppies. They will teach you how to train your puppy and methods involved such as ‘click and treat’ or positive reinforcement. Using Bark to find yourself a puppy training class fast and easy, we compare dog/puppy trainers in Southampton and then allow you to choose the best one for you.

  • What to expect from a one on one dog training class - Once you’ve found your dog trainer in Southampton, you’ll book an appointment either ask them to come to your house or go to their studio. From here you will begin weekly (sometimes more often) classes to train your dog. These classes will start with simple behaviour modification techniques to help ease your dog into some new training techniques. You will learn how to become assertive over your dog using tone of voice and body language, allowing you to work towards a more positive relationship with your animal.
  • What to expect from puppy training classes in Southampton - Training your puppy is often a lot easier said than done! One of the first steps to training your puppy will be learning how to housebreak them so that they don’t go to the loo inside. The best way to do this is to use puppy training pads to help ease your puppy outside with positive reinforcement. Once they’ve mastered this, you can take them to puppy training classes to help them socialise with other dogs. Here you will learn basic commands, recall and lead behaviour.
  • So find puppy or dog training classes with Bark today, fast, free and easy.

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.

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

To Be Sure Pet Services

To Be Sure Pet Services

The Walking & Training Experience for Your Dog !! A professional dog walking and animal care service from a qualified animal care provider. Also providing general dog training and behaviour modification programmes to suit your pet. I am fully insured, a qualified handler, trainer and behaviourist, CRB checked and Canine First Aid trained. I have worked with many species (eg. pigs, monkeys, horses) over the years but my main focus is on dogs. I provide walking and short term day care. There are many reasons for using a dog walker. Whatever reason has brought you to my page, be assured that my goal is to provide your dog with a cracking hour of exercise and stimulation. No charge for pick up and drop off and I ensure that your dog has a full hour walk. It is not a route march but a chance for your dog to perform natural behaviours, play ball, have a swim, meet other dogs or potter about. Please visit my website for a full picture. Group walks start at £10 per dog with discounts available for multiple walks and 2nd dogs. My van is custom-fitted with dogs cages, water bowls, dog ramp, soft vet bedding, air conditioning and a selection of toys for different breeds. I will walk entire dogs or bitches and will also bitches in season. I am a qualified animal care provider with a medical background and have an excellent understanding of animal behaviour and motivation. I can cater for all ages and temperaments, sizes and shapes. I will come to meet you and your dog and do a free assessment where we can all get to know each other. I will want to know your dog's likes and dislikes, his level of training and some of his background to get a full picture for what is the best walk for him. I provide dog training and behaviour modification training. I only use positive reinforcement methods and use play and games to train dogs without them realising that they are being trained. My goal is to make training as much fun as possible for both owners and dogs. First consultation/lesson for one dog households is £70 and takes as long as we need hours with further sessions at £40 per hour. Many clients find that after a 2 hour session they have a lot of the tools and information they need to take control and take positive steps forward in their training. I want to make dog training and behaviour training affordable and , hopefully, within everyones' reach. There are too many dogs sent to rescue centres simply because training is just too expensive. Also, I feel that when you are presented with a bill of in excess of £100, it puts pressure on the customer to get things right first time and this is not a good starting point when you are trying to get to grips with training your dog. Most of the time, it is about training you, the owner. Owners are even more diverse in their abilities than dogs. Simply offering you a piece of sausage to perform the right behaviour simply can't work !! I have studied animal behaviour at Southampton University and with renowned, international dog trainer, John Rogerson. I have an excellent grasp of behaviour motivation in our canine friends and can assist you to develop, improve and cement your relationship with your pet, old or young. What is your issue ? Lead pulling, jumping and nipping, over excitement on greeting people and dog, fear and anxiety, not good around food, afraid of loud noises and fireworks, doesn't know how to play and just won't fetch the ball ? Or do you simply want to know how to raise a well behaved dog that is pleasant for everyone to be around ? Do you just want to find out how to teach your dog a few basic commands and good manners ? No two dogs are the same and neither are the solutions. You can make some generalisations but I sit down with you and your dog over a cuppa and while you tell me all about your dog, your relationship with your dog and your dog's early history, I can put together a training plan to suit both of you. Sometimes it can be a simple issue of timing. Timing is a very important part of dog training and this may be a reason why your dog is not quite grasping a concept. I can take this training and tweak it to get the response you were initially going for so all is not lost. Apart for regular Dog Training packages, I also have packages designed for owners thinking of getting a puppy for the first time or getting a new puppy or picking a rescue/2nd hand dog. I can help you choose your pup or dog and temperament test them to give you "insider information" on what to expect in days to come. A puppy package will get you ready for future puppy classes amd help you and your young dog to sail through with my guidance.
