Our scruffy Afro enjoying life by the sea
'Wish You Were Here' also offers training courses for every kind of dog. Whether your dog is young or old, lazy or energetic, friendly, shy or scared our training lessons are tailored to the specific needs of your dog.
We have learnt all of our dog training skills through the experience of living and working with dogs. For many years we have been teaching dogs the acceptable behaviour and obedience needed to be a loving and cherished member of the family. We believe all dog training techniques should be compassionate, fun and reaffirming and never use the threat of physical punishment. With this in mind we only employ obedience training methods that use positive reinforcement (verbal praise, treats and rewards) and not negative scolding. We also place a strong emphasis on establishing a good rapport and a mutual trust between you and your dog.
We want your dog to enjoy living with you, pleasing you with their good behaviour and not simply being frightened into behaving correctly. As training dogs is based around the consistent repetition of commands in everyday life we first work one on one with your dog and later incorporate you or your family into the training program. It is as much about training the owners as it is the dog!! We show you all the tips and techniques you'll need to progress and gain the best results. We also offer consultations and advice on correcting behavioural problems, incorporating a new dog into your life and how to live in perfect harmony with mans best friend.
