THE DOG OWNER'S TOOLBOX
Welcome to Adolescent Dogs, home of the Dog Owners Toolbox, where your dog can learn all the skills necessary to thrive with their human families.
Whilst dogs have been bred to live with us for many, many years we can’t discount the fact they were once wild scavengers and thus still still enjoy hobbies like bin raiding, people drag racing and legging it after squirrels!
Dogs don’t come knowing the key skills needed to be a Good Boy or Girl and just like young children, they need teachers to show them the way.
The Dog Owner's Toolbox is a whole toolbox of methods for every single training exercise you can do with your dog, so that you can discover which method will suit your individual dog!
In our online classes we start to teach your dog how to be the best behaved dog your family could wish for including:
* Sitting and staying nicely when asked
* Coming back even when there are squirrels
* Settling and chilling when asked
* Walking with the person on the end of their lead and not pulling ahead
* Ignoring other dogs and people instead of barking and lunging
* Leaving stuff when their person says, even when its the tastiest snack in the hands of the human puppy
* Greeting people and dogs calmly
* Doing simple tricks to prove to your neighbours and friends they really are the best dog in town!
* Discovering great ideas for confidence building and enrichment
Of course this will require a little effort from you too. Like any parent, showing your dog what’s right and wrong is the key to your dog graduating from the classes.
In these classes we have squished lessons into short 5 minute sessions. Commit to just 5 minutes a day and marvel at the results.
