Know About

Pooch Partners

Pooch Partners has always used positive training methods and we are excited to incorporate concept training to our repertoire! How does concept training work? It is really quite simple and a whole lot of fun. Using games and positive reinforcement we teach your dog concepts such as confidence, calmness, focus and impulse control, which empowers them with the ability to respond appropriately to real life situations. Many of the games also provide your dog with fitness benefits too which is another bonus. Whether you are starting fresh with a new puppy or have a dog with some behaviour issues, concept training can turn any struggle you may be experiencing with your dog into a success!

Pooch Partners has always used positive training methods and we love games-based concept training! How does concept training work? It is really quite simple and a whole lot of fun. Using games and positive reinforcement we teach our dog concepts such as confidence, calmness, disengagement, focus and impulse control, which empowers them to respond appropriately to real life situations. Many of the games also provide your dog with fitness benefits too which is another bonus. Whether you are starting fresh with a new puppy or have a dog with some behaviour issues, concept training can turn any struggle you may be experiencing with your dog into a success!

We are also proud to continue to advance our skill set with new dog training methods including but not limited to family dog mediation and predation substitute training, which encourage guardians to understand their dogs as individuals, identify their innate instinctual needs and provide safe activities that allow them to be the dogs that they are meant to be.
