SitDropStay dog whisperers understand and use relationship, energy, body language, emotions, and direction of thought as the primary form of communication rather than focusing purely on teaching mechanical body actions or commands by using treats or punishment. We understand that it is our relationship with our dogs and our behaviour around them that is the foundation of achieving a deeper connection and willing co-operation.
We believe in-home dog training is the most effective and easiest way to establish a solid foundation of training and create the dog you want - one you will enjoy being with both at home and out and about. We teach your dog life skills. As with children, establishing important concepts like trust, respect, self-control, self-responsibility, problem-solving, and an understanding of boundaries, rules, and consequences are vital if we want our dogs to develop into balanced, likeable members of society.
Every family and dog is different, so we work to find the right "formula" for your situation. It's important for your dog behaviourist to find out about your lifestyle, the personalities in your family, the temperament of your dog(s), and the behaviour and habits you want your dog to have. Dogs, like us, have a basic hierarchy of needs and depending on your lifestyle, these will have to be adjusted to keep your dog happy and balanced. We look at the overall picture and recommend strategies that address things at a foundational level.
