The Academy is dedicated to educating both people and canines. Our dog training programs include everything from housebreaking, etiquette, and behavior modification, through obedience training and protection training services.
We offer one-week workshops that give you an incredible opportunity to train many different dogs all day, every day. We provide the dogs and the pro instructors, you provide the passion! These intensive programs teach you how to build or refine rock-solid skills as you practice professional techniques with a coach at your side. Workshops can be taken standalone or in combination with any full-length course for a total learning experience that is unmatched. When the Master Class is taken in combination with a hands-on Dog Trainer Workshop we call this the Platinum Package and there is a special discount for enrolling in both at the same time. Remember, workshops can also be taken by themselves as an amazing learning experience. Visit the dog trainer workshops page to learn more or call and ask us how you can add this experience to your total course package.
Biting during play is often due to over excitement. Try and control the play so he doesn’t become over excited. One way to do this is to play for 15 second bursts, where you set down toys and don’t interact again until the puppy is sitting attentively. This short ‘time out’ sessions stop him getting too revved up. Plus, if he does nip, stop the game immediately and leave the room. This sends out the message that if he bites, the game ends.

Unlike many obedience trainers, Dog Training In Your Home is not invested in trying to prove that one method of training is the best. Our obedience trainer will use the methods that get the desired results. People don’t all respond to the same teaching methods and neither do dogs. Our obedience trainer will train your dog to voluntarily change behavior through the use of consequences. Reinforcement encourages desired behaviors and punishment discourages undesired behaviors. Not all rewards are food based and not all punishments are physical. Playing fetch is rewarding and putting the ball away is punishing if used correctly. Your dog’s natural pack drive, prey drive, and genetic disposition (nerves) will help your obedience trainer chose the methods that results in a positive and rewarding learning experience.
RD is remarkable. I was skeptical about what she could possibly teach Gracie in one session, and I have to say, my expectations were SO over met; I am amazed. Gracie would not let me, or anyone else, …cut her nails. At all. She bit, squirmed, anything to avoid it. After this session, I can trim Gracie’s nails. I sat through the whole experience watching how RD trained her, in awe. She is so patient and calm, yet firm. She had me cutting Gracie’s nails in about 20 minutes. I honestly am stunned. I paid an exorbitant amount of money to Wonder Puppy for their puppy training class. Gracie learned so much more with RD in two hours than she (or I) ever did at Wonder Puppy. I highly and strongly recommend her to anyone with a dog! See More

Repeat this sequence a few times every day until your dog has it mastered. Then ask your dog to sit before mealtime, when leaving for walks, and during other situations where you’d like him calm and seated.
Blanka is studying for a Diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour with the British College of Canine Studies. She is passionate about animal welfare and her experience of working in an animal re-homing centre has shown her how too many dogs need re-homing due to avoidable issues. She volunteered for the Dogs Trust Dogs Schools in Bristol and Dorset before joining the Dorset team as Coach, and is enthusiastic about sharing how the right approach can make a positive difference to the life of dogs and their families.
It’s true that in a small enough house, and with the door to the yard open all day, every day, most puppies will naturally empty themselves outdoors because this is the furthest point away from their nest or sleeping area.
