Many people reach me for whom I am the last hope. Although they attended a dog school with their dog, participated in a puppy group, they found no answer or solution for certain problems or behaviors of their dog. Often there were recommendations from the trainers, which only made the behavior worse. In the conversations, I then notice again and again that necessary specialized knowledge or the awareness of certain courses of action are missing.
Of course it is important that the dog learns rules and the basic commands. Also, the dog should be socialized and get along with its environment without stress. And yet, for example, a puppy can develop into a nervous and insecure dog, even though he has attended the puppy group. At maybe 10 months old, he has become a dog that barks at everything and everyone, destroys things and jumps into the leash. Why does it happen? Because essential basic skills are simply missing.
Dogs from animal welfare are special. But they are also able to adapt to new circumstances and learn what their humans want from them. Only you have to understand them first.
I deliberately do not offer training courses that only deal with the training of e.g. basic commands and basic obedience. In my courses, the dog learns this quite simply along the way. The dog is an individual creature with its own personality and has a certain way of learning. General 08/15 training programs lead to excessive demands and frustration.
The dog and its human should be considered holistically. Each team has its own wishes, needs and expectations. What is the use of a training that is simply prayed down, and the necessary background knowledge is missing?
