At Doggie School Days we aim to provide positive dog training in Cannock and the surrounding area whether it be general dog training or specific problem behaviours.
Hi I'm Antony, as a dog trainer I have a Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management, have studied the most up to date training methods and am a member of ISAP, the International Society of Animal Professionals (www.is-ap.org). Click to see our Training Principles.
Whether you choose our services or another trainer please be very careful, as anyone can call themselves a dog trainer, the industry is unregulated and many have no qualifications or use outdated dominance techniques.
Dog Behaviour problems come in all shapes and sizes. There is no 'one size fits all' remedy. Each dog has different experiences and associations during their lives and what causes a problem in one dog may not have caused the same problem in another.
Owners may take their dogs to group training or obedience classes but this may never fix the problem or may even make it worse as the root cause is never diagnosed. A dog may also behave perfectly well in the training class but when they get home its another story.
This is why our services are one to one in your home and tailored to you and your dog not a classroom of people with differing individual needs.
So, whether your dog is pulling on the lead, jumping up, destroying things, has a phobia, is fearful, aggressive or has any other unwanted behaviours we are here to help.
"OUR JOB IS TO ESTABLISH THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM, HELP THE OWNER UNDERSTAND THE CAUSE AND DESIGN A BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION PROGRAMME TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOUR AND GET THE OWNER TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO APPLY IT."
Or you may have a puppy that you want to give the best start in life; we can tailor a training programme for you and your puppy to follow. This will ensure they have good manners, develop into a well balanced adult dog and should avoid any future behaviour issues from developing.
You may just be considering purchasing a dog or puppy and need advice on breed suitability and training advice. We can help with that too.
