Dog Training Success Stories

What to Expect From a Dog Training Bootcamp

Training your dog develops a communication language that promotes security and comfort between you and your dog. In addition, the more time you spend training your dog on how to live successfully in the human world, the fewer undesirable behaviours will arise due to a lack of understanding.

Unfortunately, besides the innate language barrier between our species, miscommunication also occurs, and for the most part, it’s the main culprit of inadequate training. Luckily, dog training services can help you establish good foundational training with your pet, aiding its further development.

What Are Dog Training Services?

Dog training services is an industry branch that deals with dog obedience training and eliminating dog behavioural issues. 

Professional dog trainers work with both dogs, and dog owners, in several different settings. Dog trainers can do in home consultations along with the owner. 

Alternatively, dog trainers can take the dog with them for one-on-one training and provide the owner with instructions to maintain the new dog’s new behavioural standards.

Why Should You Train Your Dog?

Dog owners frequently skip training because of how they think it makes their dog feel, or they feel bad for enforcing rules, and not allowing their dog to “be a dog.” This humanisation of a dog’s behaviour leads to erroneous assumptions about what canines understand, need, and what is best for them.

If you don’t train your dog, he or she may begin to regard themselves as the “leader of the household.” This may result in a wide variety of behavioural problems. Untrained dogs don’t respond to commands and become harder to train later on. However, “harder” doesn’t mean “impossible,” and adequate dog training has an effect even on older dogs.

Common Types of Dog Training Services

There are several types of dog training services that can help you train your dog: one-on-one behavioural correction and dog training classes or dog boot camps.

The one-on-one training option actually entails teaching people; most dog training services teach private lessons to dog owners, who teach their dogs basic obedience and how to comply with certain commands.

The success of these training programs largely depends on humans’ compliance with said programs. Most dog owners often gravitate towards group classes, believing that one-on-one is reserved for dogs with aggression and reactivity issues, but that isn’t the case.

Dog boot camps are fantastic options for those on a tight schedule, as they usually involve boarding a dog into specialised K9 boot camps that focus on dog training services, such as obedience training and dog behaviour modification. Admittedly, these focus more on group training sessions and Dog Social Clubs, but have proven to be equally effective in dealing with unique training problems, such as aggression, separation anxiety, and toilet training, as in-home training classes.

It’s worth noting that K9 boot camps, like one at Allbreeds Dog Training in Perth, usually involve the best dog trainers and behaviour consultants, positive reinforcement training techniques, and individual and group training courses. These training classes have proven to be effective in solving behavioural problems, even in adult dogs.

How Do Dog Training Services Work?

To understand how dog training services work, one must understand how dogs learn: through immediate consequences of their action and by associations. For example, if you give your dog food while it’s begging at the dinner table, the dog will associate the action with the result and continue to beg.

Likewise, if you signal your dog to sit, and it obeys, rewarding your dog with a treat will help it associate adherence to a particular signal with a reward. The dog will be more likely to follow that same signal the next time it’s asked to do so. Dogs also learn by association: leashes predict walks, and opening a jar of treats predicts tasty treats.

Dog trainers simply rely on this to reinforce positive behaviour in our furry friends and “train out” the behavioural issues through adequate training methods.

How Long Does It Take to Train a Dog?

The length of an active dog training course depends on several different factors such as the number of commands and their complexity. For example, house-training a dog is quick and easy compared to training a herding dog. 

Teaching your dog to respond to the basic commands like sit, heel, and lay down doesn’t usually take long, and with professional help, it can be done in under one month of training. However, you still need to maintain that level of training for at least a year to be able to assume that your dog is a fully-trained, well-mannered pet.

Unfortunately, the time frame only increases with the number of added commands and their complexity. For example, house-training a dog is relatively easy compared to training a herding dog.

The trainer’s skills are by no means the most important factor, but they can influence the duration of the training. A dog trainer with years of experience is more likely to achieve better results in a shorter period.

The older a dog gets, the more difficult it becomes to train out unwanted behaviours. While not impossible, it does take more time to train out poor behaviour in an older dog than it would with a puppy.

What You Can Expect to Gain From Obedience Training

This largely depends on what type of dog training class you want. For example, basic obedience training usually includes socialisation with other dogs, basic training, and specific aspects of behavioural correction.

During the basic obedience classes, expect your dog to learn the basics such as sit, stay, come, heel, and down. If you want your dog to undergo more in-depth training, be sure that you and the dog have mastered basic obedience before enrolling in subsequent programs.

The Allbreeds K9 Boot Camp is located in the Perth metro area in Western Australia and offers three distinct dog training programs:

  1. Two 10-day programs focusing on dogs of all ages without aggression issues and
  2. A seven-day program that prioritises aggression issues in dogs of all ages.

Dog training is an important aspect of pet ownership and shouldn’t be neglected. However, sometimes it can be challenging for our furry friends to understand what it is we’re asking of them, and this is where dog training services can help.

Dog training services like those offered by Allbreeds Dog Training have years of experience, and can help you and your dog better understand each other while strengthening your bond through high-quality training and playtime.
