Why In-Home Dog Training Matters
27th February 2019
In-home dog training is designed to help dogs and their families in real life situations and address issues that cause stress such as jumping up, pulling on lead, separation anxiety, aggression and other problems. In-home dog training uses communication techniques that help dogs learn more appropriate and desirable behaviours, and it can provide concerned dog owners with serious relief.
Training in-home reduces risk of accidents and injuries. Inappropriate behaviours such as jumping up, pulling on lead and aggression are addressed while reducing any risks of dog and human injuries that might occur in a multi-dog class format.
In-Home training can address separation anxiety. To treat this problem, the anxiety of being home alone must be specifically dealt with and can only be learned at home.
In-home trainers are always available to help you work through behaviours one-on-one with you and your dog. This individual approach to training enables you to fully understand why the behaviour is occurring and be coached step by step as to how to make impactful, long lasting changes.
In-home training ensures your dog learns that you are a capable leader and understands your instructions. In-home training provides an opportunity for addressing specific behaviours that may be unique to your dog. Individual teaching is more effective than a class setting because the attention level and focus of all involved is much higher and your dog is less distracted.
For dogs that are aggressive or unruly around other dogs or people, in-home training is the most effective, stress-free way to teach your dog how you want him to behave. Your dog can learn how to behave in a controlled and managed setting instead of having repeated negative experiences with other dogs or people in class that serves to reinforce his aggression.
All in all, in-home training provides an individualised approach that is tailored to you and your dog and the real life situations that you live with daily. It will help you to understand and relate to your dog better so that you can teach him how to behave. Training matters, and in-home training is the most effective. Regardless of age, history or breed, every dog (and human) can learn. It’s up to you to decide to make in happen.
