Canine Enrichment: Most dogs today, have lost the jobs they were born and bred to do and while physical exercise is good its not enough, dogs like humans need mental stimulation. Canine enrichment is great for teaching your dog to listen and focus on you, while having fun along the way, it also helps alleviate boredom, as the saying goes “a happy dog is a tired dog”. In this class I will introduce you and your dog to: Canine Parkour, (it will make your daily walk and training more interesting and fun), scent games, plus a few ideas on how to keep your dog happy and occupied with everyday items, we often throw away. These games and training can be adapted so you can do them in your own backyard or inside your home.
Dogs read body language a lot better than humans. All too often, owners may verbally ask their dog to do something eg: recall but the owners body language is in fact, pushing the dog away.
How to prevent certain behaviours and how to handle your dog in real life situations, such as a you being approached by a strange dog. Other issues we will cover is the Dog Control Act. Also an introduction to urban agility.
These classes are not suitable for dog aggressive dogs. However I am more that happy to train you & your dog privately, using my training dogs. I will teach you how to handle and manage your dogs aggression.
