It can be a daunting job to take on a dog and develop it into a well trained dog. However it doesn't need to be, with the correct guidance it can be a lot less stressful more enjoyable and very rewarding.
Training shouldn't be frustrating for you or your dog, they are not complicated animals, its humans that make it seem so. They are instinctive, opportunistic, predators even the cute little ones. If you let them, they will take advantage of you very quickly. Without a leader it is not clear what is expected of them. Everything should be binary, they can, or they can’t, no grey areas this is what creates issues. Dogs don’t take things personal when you ask something of them. They respect, understand, and need leadership in their life. This is what keeps control and helps them understand what is expected of them.
Being a former Military Police Dog Handler I have trained dogs to an exceptionally high standard. These are some of the methods and skills I use to teach you how to train your own dog.
The key to good training and handling is understanding how to communicate on your dog’s level. This is something I will teach you, and after mastering this, the responses and bond with your dog will improve exponentially.
Jason Harris Dog Training caters for all your dog needs from Doggy Day-Care, one on one training, puppy programs, 6months and over program, behavioural training, assistance dog training, agility, equipment sales. We are your one stop shop for dogs.
A one on one dog training session is great way to fast track your way to correcting any behavioural problems or teach any specific obedience skills you want in your dog. The sessions can go up to 2 hrs and in this time we will work through what I call your "wish list". This is a list of things you come to me with that need correcting or teaching to your dog. The results you get will be completely determined by you. Like anything we want to learn or change in our own lives it takes consistency, correct methods and patience. I guarantee you I will give you the skills, then it will be up you to apply them correctly.

In person training is definitely the best way to learn however you may not live near me. I can help a lot over the phone or online. We can have in depth conversations about your specific dog issues. Then I will give you solutions and lessons to work through it. This can be done through zoom type calls where I can see you training and correct you as you go.
Dog reactivity is a extremely common behaviour and there are various reasons behind it happening. It is often displayed as what seems aggression towards dog's or people. In most cases it is either frustration, fear or anxiety. Reactivity is something that can be improved provided it is diagnosed correctly.
The good news is I can help you decipher what is causing the reactivity. By contacting me we can talk about your dog and get together to correct the issue.
