The Industrious Hound philosophy
The Industrious Hound is intelligent and thinking. He is fit and healthy, and fulfilled. He is quirky and fun. He is allowed to be a dog.
The Industrious Hound is a good citizen. He can go anywhere. He is relaxed and free from anxiety and fear. He is peaceful and respectful. He is safe.
He thrives because you understand your and your dog's behaviour, and you lead the dog's dynamic social structure with simple and consistent boundaries, and gentle reward-based training and positive reinforcement.
I train you for your dog. I will challenge you and perhaps your ideas, but training is extremely rewarding, thought-provoking and stimulating. And fun!
You will be given the strong foundations to prevent, identify or tackle problem behaviour, and solve those weird things your dog does, or just relax and have more fun.
You'll gain foundation to advanced skills and knowledge in confidently handling dogs. You’ll learn to understand, analyse and interpret your and your dog's behaviour.
Your training is just the beginning for you and your dog. As with any new skill, time, patience and practice pay off. But if you need extra support from time to time, you can call or email, or get a little more one-on-one time when you’re ready.
My adventures support the Industrious Hound philosophy for the energetic and intelligent dog that simply needs more.
Time with me will stretch your dog's body and mind. During two-hour adventures or big days out, I reinforce your reward-based training, make your dog think and solve problems, and build their skills and confidence - the recipe for a peaceful home!
