Many owners feel that training is not an important part of raising their dog and often overlook this vital part that often leads to behavioural issues later on in the dogs life. We meet about 10 - 15 dogs daily because of our work and we have seen a range of issues that that the dog owners face with their pets. Our advice if often that “the human has to be trained, not the dog”, many small gestures that we often do unknowingly makes our dog think differently.
Training your dog is a very important aspect of raising a well rounded dog that is happy, obedient and occasionally naughty!
There are lots of dog trainers who only focus on commands such as sit, sleep, roll over, but it is also very important to understand our actions and train the dog to avoid any behavioural issues. Very important also to note is that you cant just get a trainer and ask them to do all the work, the dog owners have to be involved themselves and learn so that is creates a bond between the dog and owners and helps you understand how your dog thinks and acts around you.
Have a look at the list of three trainers and behaviourist in Delhi whom we personally have worked with and have seem them at work so we can vouch for their experience and professionalism.
