There seems to be confusion out there in the doggie world! The short answer is YES!
Are the rumours of training classes being linked to the uprise in incidents of dog aggression true?
- No! this is of course, is absolute nonsense
- The truth of the matter is that we have more incidents of dog aggression purely because we have more dogs out there!
- A good dog training class teaches your puppy/dog mannersand in return, you benefit from a well behaved family memeber/dog you can take anywhere with you.
What dog training should I choose?
Like anything in life, there are professional organisations and non-professional organisations, so please do your research first.
- Your weekly training class can be in your nearby park or local village hall and the actual vicinity should not be your main focus. Such classes should be held by a professional trainer or behaviourist who is both qualified and knows their stuff.
- The classes should not be over crowded and there should be plenty of time to discuss any special training needs before or after the class.
- A weekly training class can also compliment any new training skills and/or techniques you have recently been taught during your one-to-one sessions from someone like myself. Consequently, a weekly training class should never be over looked.
We are on our 8th year in Longdown village hall and my clients just love this extra “back up” as and when it is needed.
The fact of the matter is, dog aggression is on the increase due to nothing more than there are an ever growing amount of dogs out there!!
