Welcome to 'Paws 4 thought Dog Training' - Shrewsbury

Welcome to Paws 4 Thought Dog Training Shrewsbury.

My name is Jill and I have 20 + years of dog training and I hope to give you some insight into the world of pet dog training.

It is never too early to train a puppy to grow into a well behaved and well mannered happy dog.

I have listed a few of the basic things, to help you as a dog owner, on the upbringing and training of your dog.

Firstly, it is very important for you to remember that you are the one who gives the commands not your dog. That means you 'tell' your dog what to do, you don't ask, - it is not a human being. This may sound a bit harsh, but a dog will not understand long conversations or 'please' and 'thank you'. When your dog knows you control their meals and play and walks, they will feel happy and content, because they will rely on you as 'pack leader' for their needs.

Training is made easier with rewards such as food, play with a favourite toy, touch, or just a happy voice of praise. Your dog will always be ready to please you with such rewards.

A dog is never too old to train. Some dogs are quicker to learn than others, many a handler has given up thinking their dog is un-trainable. Therefore patience and understanding are very important. Your dog will be much happier to have been given things to do and commands to follow.

It is a good feeling when you see the results of your training and that you know you have a well behaved and obedient dog. A dog that you can take out with you anywhere. Then there is also the 'bond' that you build with your dog. The bond is very strong, and it will be with you 'the handler' for life, the one who has persevered with training your dog. Don't forget the importance that the rest of the family must practice the same code of training as the main handler.

So remember the above points. If you consider it is right for you to have a dog, then enjoy your dog and please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information, help at any time or attend my training classes and join other handlers who want to train their dogs (or alternatively, on a 'one to one' basis).
