Dog Behaviour Training

At Dog Training in Kent, we recognise that dogs are not merely pets; they are valued members of your family. Our specialised Dog Behaviour Training programme goes beyond basic obedience commands, delving into the root causes of your dog’s behavioural issues.

Behavioural Dog Training Solutions in Kent

While many dogs receive basic obedience training, a significant number still encounter behavioural difficulties.

Symptoms might manifest as jumping on guests or showing aggression over food or toys.

As puppies grow, their responsiveness to commands may fluctuate. What may have worked in earlier months becomes ineffective as the puppy gains confidence and becomes selective in its obedience. For instance, a dog may heed a ‘come’ command when in the garden but ignore it in other settings.

Dog Training Issues We Address

Our behavioural training solutions aim to tackle an array of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Selective obedience to ‘come’ commands
  • Inter-dog aggression within the family
  • Human-directed aggression
  • Destructive behaviours like nipping or biting
  • Anxieties and nervousness
  • Undesirable habits like digging or chewing
  • Escaping tendencies
  • Coprophagia (eating faecal matter)

Our approach to resolving these issues goes beyond simple obedience training to provide lasting solutions.
