Why Has My Dog Changed?

Many behavioural problems develop when moving house, a new baby or an additional pet arrives. Stressful situations such as redundancy, death or divorce can affect your dog too.  Finding out the cause of unwanted behaviour allows you to solve the problem from your pet’s point of view, rather than trying to treat the symptoms with unkind or inappropriate methods.

When you start training your dog his behaviour and activity levels will change he should be quieter, more relaxed, Calmer. Remember you can not change a dogs’ personality only its behaviour. pattern and habits.

 

Is my dog too old or too young to learn?

NO, Best Buddies Home Dog Training methods are suitable for any age or breed of dog. The ideal age for a pup to leave its mother is between 8 and 9 weeks old. This is the time to lay the foundations for a well adjusted obedient dog for life. Through many years of experience training techniques are tailored for your individual dog.

 

Understanding dog psychology and behaviour

Dogs are born with a pack instinct to survive. They must either lead or be lead. Unless an owner is displaying leadership qualities clearly, they will take on the role themselves, and the results of this action is what we perceive to be bad behaviour.

DOGS are expert people trainers!  

With Best Buddies, you will learn why your dog behaves as is it does, and how you can correct your dog’s behaviour through your own calm behaviour, body language and appropriate timing. You may not know it but dog’s behaviour is strongly linked to the people and environment in which it lives and interacts with.  

 

Why a Behaviourist and not dog classes?

Classes are often crowded in an unfamiliar place. They aim to teach obedience and some socialisation but time is usually limited to spend on your own individual specific issues. This conventional training may attempt to correct the symptoms, but can fail to tackle the underlying cause of a dog’s problems.

Some behaviour can be changed by simple repetition and conditioning. But the underlying causes for more serious issues need to be addressed before a resolution can be effective.

The programme Best Buddies advise produces changes very quickly, but it will take time, effort and a commitment by all the family to maintain and build on the improved behaviour.

 

Why do Best Buddies train at my home?

This is where we find training is most effective.

Training in your home is on a one-on-one basis without the stress or distraction of other dogs and strangers. Dogs and people are more relaxed and learn quicker in their familiar surroundings.

You will be able to ask questions and practice the techniques yourself under guidance.

If your dog will not listen and behave at home, do not expect to be able to control him anywhere else.

To send your dog away for training may not only stress your dog but you as a family. Your dog will learn to respond to a stranger and not its owner

Leadership and education begins at home and it is very important for a dog to understand where it fits into the pack and which pack it belongs to!

 

What training techniques do Best Buddies use?

You are taught to communicate with your dog using voice control and body language, a natural and holistic approach without fear or confrontation. Dogs are highly intelligent animals so recognised psychological techniques for training i.e. Operant and Classical Conditioning methods are incorporated into training sessions.

 

Best Buddies Home Dog Training DO NOT  ADVOCATE THE USE OF traditional harsh physical methods i.e. smacking, scruffing, electric, spray or spiked collars, choke chains.

 

Why does the training work?

You will no doubt have seen or heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques; Best Buddies training methods are also taught in this way. Traditional dog training usually forces your dog’s behaviour to change, but without your dog ever understanding why. This is why it can fail. Best Buddies methods teach you how and why; making dog training effective.

 

How long will it take to train my dog?

Best Buddies Home Dog Training behaviour modification advice and training often produces results very quickly, but it will take time, effort and a commitment by all of the family to maintain and build on the improved behaviour.  Puppies start learning as soon as they arrive in their new home.The ideal age for a pup to leave its mother is between 8 and 9 weeks old. This is the time to lay the foundations for a well adjusted obedient dog for life. Puppies need to be educated with their owner, to understand what they should do and what is expected of them. You can’t assume a pup will ‘grow out’ of behaviour we don’t like unless we teach it to behave in the way we do want.

Rescue and adult dogs, your dog’s current habits may have developed over a long period of time. It will therefore take longer to undo this unwanted behaviour.

 

 

Remember it is not a quick fix, but a way of life and your perseverance will be rewarded by having a happier, calmer and healthier relationship with your dog.
