At Focus Dogs we provide coaching for real life issues that affect your dog everyday. Often we use real life locations, your park or your local field. We keep it real and practical, so that you learn methods you know you can use where you walk your dog.
We understand that an increasing number of companion dogs suffer with behaviours that are emotionally led.
We will show you how to help your dog gain confidence, build optimism and reduce its fear or anxiety.
We use low stress coaching techniques, based on science. All of which are positive and reward based. This helps hugely with the learning process and builds trust and forms stronger bonds.
Focus on you by your dog is an essential behaviour your dog can learn.
Once learnt unwanted behaviours you both experienced together , for example running off maybe to chase other dogs or wildlife, or pulling on the lead excessively or simply never returning when called simply start to decrease .
Focus Dogs will help you build this focus through games that create a learning environment for your dog. Increasing the bond between you and developing the dog's skill set in learning to live with us in our busy world.
