Welcome to Alert Dog Training website
Most humans mistakenly believe that they can bring a dog into their home and expect that it will integrate easily into family life. Mostly this is not the case.
Humans act and think on one level and a dog acts and thinks on another.
We utilise a unique approach re-educating people to communicate on a level easily understood by their dog. We have proven over a number of years, that a more holistic and diverse approach enables quicker more consistent outcomes. Simplifying the overall approach to training has meant that people of all abilities and ages can easily grasp and master the concepts we teach.
A dog wants to know and understand its place within its environment, and wants to be able to respond effectively to you as its owner. If you don’t understand your dogs requirements then it is very likely that your dog will become confused and anxious. This often leads to the dog developing bad habits and issues such as aggressive, dominant, destructive or fearful behaviour. It therefore follows that your dog becomes a reflection of your approach to dog ownership.
A dog is a living breathing, thinking animal, with feelings and needs which you as an owner should ensure you understand. Training your dog will point its energy in the right direction by providing the correct physical and mental stimulation. You will build a bond very quickly as your dog will see you as a strong, confident and consistent leader, and therefore be able to respond quickly and accurately to you. An intelligent dog rarely wants to please an owner they don’t respect.
We don’t subscribe to any one particular training method, utilising whatever methods work for each particular dog. Our methods are best described as holistic.
Our approach toward training a dog not only covers obedience training, but also considers factors such as behavioural issues, bad habits, history and environment, as well as your expectations as an owner. All of these factors contribute towards achieving a well balanced dog.
Many clients over the years who have previously trained their dog elsewhere prior to contacting Alert Dog Training have been amazed by our easy, direct approach and fast, consistent results.
