As important as training is, providing companion dogs with experiences and enrichment will ensure that their behavioural needs are met. With modern living and choosing and sourcing of dogs, pet dogs are often kept in inappropriate environments, socially isolated and without sufficient access to appropriate stimulation, especially olfaction. This adversely affects their welfare, which will lead to problem behaviour.
Many approaches to dealing with this that are marketed to pet owners are just not appropriate and, in our experience, may lead to many and more serious issues.
Your dog will not experience highs in arousal that cause the development and rehearsal of inappropriate behaviour and are so commonly associated with lots of group approaches to dog-dog play, running wild and repetitive fetch games. Although this may result in an exhausted dog, it does nothing to improve behavioural health; all our Train, Play & Learn services aim to maximise appropriate behavioural development.
We can help you and your dog, by coming to your home, to help you help your dog meet those needs, providing appropriate entertainment, exercise and stimulation.
