Behavioural Dog Training Classes
Coping with anti-social behaviour in dogs
Badly behaved dogs are a great nuisance, and can be dangerous. The range of undesirable behaviour is extensive – it can include anything from shyness and fearfulness to biting and territorial aggression. All anti-social behaviour puts your dog at risk. Not only will he become an unpopular member of the family, but you could fall foul of the law, which requires that dogs are kept under control by their owners at all times.

If you’re tired of struggling to cope with your dog’s less than perfect behaviour, our in-home behaviour modification dog training classes are the answer.

“We thought Bertie was going to turn out to be a real problem dog, but thanks to Martyn at CAS, he has calmed down and hasn’t attacked our other dog, Suki, again. The training was impressive – we learned more than we expected to and feel much more confident about handling Bertie – we’re all best friends now.”

Why train your dog?
Dogs are trained so that they can help with specific activities or carry out particular tasks for people (gun dogs, sheepdogs, guide dogs, PAT dogs, for example), or so they can be a happy, healthy, well-behaved companion at home. Our dog training classes enable you to make the most of your relationship with your four-legged friend.

Five essential dog obedience commands to teach your dog:
This is one of the easiest dog obedience commands to teach, so it’s a good one to start with.
This command can help keep a dog out of trouble, bringing him back to you if you lose grip on the lead or accidentally leave the front door open.
This can be one of the more difficult commands in dog obedience training. Why? Because the position is a submissive posture. You can help by keeping training positive and relaxed, particularly with fearful or anxious dogs.
This can be difficult to start with as he or her may break away to come after you. Before attempting this one, make sure your dog is an expert at the ‘Sit’ command.
This can help keep your dog safe when his curiosity gets the better of him – for instance, if he smells something intriguing but possibly dangerous on the ground! The goal is to teach your pet that he gets something even better if he ignores the item.
If you need some help to get the message across, find out how our dog obedience training classes can help your dog get to grips with these basic commands.
