what we do

obedience training

“Catch them young” is the phrase that fits the best when it comes to raising well-mannered, lovable doggies. Puppies are curious little explorers and fast learners too. They are always eager to learn new things and turn out to be the best when you start training them right after they land into your lap. Your puppy needs to get accustomed to its new atmosphere and learn to be friendly with people, other dogs, and animals. Obedience training instils the right kind of behaviour in a puppy. As a responsible dog-owner, it is your duty to train your dog to socialise and behave well. Things can get a little frustrating at times but fret not! We can make dog-ownership exciting for you by removing all the roadblocks and making sure both you and your pet have a lot of fun in our sessions.

behavior correction

Imagine coming home after a long, hard day at work only to see that your puppy has made a mess out of your entire house. Too scary to even imagine right? What can you do when you find yourself caught in a situation like that? Shouting and yelling at your puppy is not going to work because the little one obviously is not going to understand the ordeal you are going through as a human. This is where behaviour correction helps.

All sorts of bad dog behaviour such as counter-surfing, not wearing a collar, jumping on people, and not walking when put on a leash can be corrected with a little bit of patience and persistence. It is important that you do not give up after a few unsuccessful attempts and learn to control the way you respond to your dog’s behaviour. Now what worked for your friend’s dog might not work for yours because, no prizes for guessing, each dog is different and there is no one single approach to this. We create behaviour modification models that are tailor-made to suit the needs of each dog.

Here is a list of issues we address when it comes to behaviour modification:

    • Separation anxiety
    • Biting and growling
    • Chasing and digging
    • Play-biting and aggression towards people
    • Stealing food
    • Begging
    • Leash resistance and running away

If you find your puppy exhibiting any of these difficult behaviours, call us and we’ll chart out a proper guidance plan to turn it into a good boi!

Food Aggression

Gluttony is a sin, not only for us humans but also for our pets. A dog that gets too territorial and possessive over its food is BAD NEWS! It can lead to a lot of aggression which can be dangerous for both people around the dog and other dogs. Such dogs turn ferocious when eating and often indulge in threatening others to force them away from the food. Most often, food aggression is the result of any underlying anxiety or fear.

Is your dog aggressive while eating?

You can answer that question by observing your dog’s eating pattern and behaviour. Being stiff while eating, gulping food very fast, growling and barking at the sight of food, hovering or getting territorial around food are some of the signs your dog may show when it is a victim of this common behavioural disease that plagues most canines.

How we deal with it?

We enforce positive training methods and techniques to get your dog to be less sensitive around food. Here are some of the ways we rehabilitate a food-aggressive dog:

    • By teaching your dog that a human may not have an intention to steal its share of food.
    • By conditioning your dog to follow a healthy eating pattern and not gobble unhealthy amounts of food leading to obesity and indigestion.
    • By training your dog to relax around food.

Is your puppy gobbling things up like the Taz from Looney Toons? Let us fix that right away!

puppy consultation

Thinking of becoming a puppy parent? It takes more than just your love for dogs to ace that skill and we can teach you how to do it. Getting a new dog home is nothing short of welcoming a new member into your family. It can be both exciting and challenging at the same time. The bad news however is that, for a lot of novice dog-owners, the fun lasts only until reality kicks in. You may be in for an unexpected jolt of shock when your puppy is running around your living space leaving dirty footprints, barking incessantly, chewing your footwear, defecating where it is not supposed to, biting, digging, and wreaking havoc in every possible way. To avoid this, it is important that you are aware of how to provide your puppy with a safe, comfortable environment where it can learn to behave and fit in. In this consultation, we ensure that you know how to establish a healthy bond with your puppy, we help you understand what kind of food your puppy might love and what kind of toys it might want to play with. Our focus is to provide you with a roadmap on how to train and educate your puppy on basic house manners.
