Academy of Modern Dog Training - Dog Training in Arbroath, Angus
With years of experience and satisfied owners I can help your dog with the training they need so with this in mind, Rather than using force with a dog, isn't it better for them to “understand” what we would like them to do and for them to “want” to and hopefully “enjoy“ doing it!
I only use only the most up to date, kind, fair and effective methods to help train your dog, such as ”clicker” positive reinforcement training. I don’t advocate the use of punishment such as choke/check chain, spiked or prone collars or E-collar (electric). Nor kicking, nipping, pinching. Not only are these methods inhumane but also derogatory in training and behaviour modification not to mention the relationship and trust you have with your dog.
My mission is to empower dog owners by providing you with the tools you need along with the most up to date, positive based methods so that you can understand and communicate better with your dogs.
As a dog trainer and behaviourist, I want to help you to understand and ultimatley try to improve your dog's challenging and possibly unwanted behaviour.
Behavioural Modification Training
Unfortunately, there is no magic wand or quick fix when it comes to modify a dog’s behaviour. This is because they have learned over a period of time how to act, both physically and emotionally to a given situation. With understanding of WHY the dog does this, we can then provide a behaviour modification plan, advice and training, to teach your dog a new and more acceptable way to behave. Most importantly the cause is addressed as well as the behaviour.
