Frequently Asked Questions

Dog trainers teach basic commands and desired behaviours, while behaviourists address deeper emotional issues that cause problems like aggression or anxiety. Both are valuable resources for creating a well-adjusted canine companion!
Dog training can focus on basic obedience commands like sit and stay or delve into specialised areas like agility or therapy work. The most popular methods use positive reinforcement with treats, clickers, or praise to reward good behaviour. By studying this combined canine behaviour package, you’ll focus on understanding canine behaviour to address problem behaviours. You'll learn about dog anatomy, physiology, and psychology to identify the root cause of issues like aggression or anxiety.
Positive reinforcement training is widely considered the most effective way to train dogs. It focuses on rewarding good behaviour with treats, praise, or toys, which motivates dogs to learn and builds a strong bond between you and your furry friend. By studying this course, you’ll learn all about positive reinforcement training methods and legal aspects of dog ownership. By the end, you'll be equipped to design behaviour modification programmes and manage dog training classes.
While trainability can vary among individual dogs, breeds like Siberian Huskies, Beagles, and Jack Russell Terriers are known for their independent streak and strong prey drive, making them more challenging to train for obedience compared to dogs bred for following commands.
Even very stubborn or anxious dogs can learn new behaviours with the right approach. This Levels 3, 4, and 5 Combined Canine Behaviour Package equips you to understand the root of behavioural problems and use positive reinforcement to build trust and communication, helping even the most challenging canine companions.
