The Importance of Dog Training

The Importance of Dog Training

When people buy a puppy, they take their responsibilities very seriously, ensuring that the puppy receives the necessary vaccinations, learns where to sleep, where to eat, and where to toilet. Then, when the puppy is ready and able to leave the house, they conscientiously attend puppy training classes every week for the first few months of the dog's life. read more…

Having your dog living indoors also means that they are part of your family unit and addresses their fundamental need to be part of a pack. (Having adequate shelter outside is also really important from the different weather conditions that we experience). read more…

Jumping Up

Jumping Up

We often get called to see dogs who are in the habit of jumping up at people. It may be that they jump up at their owner, or visitors, or anyone they pass in the street!
