Training

 

Level 1 – Home Obedience

This is the mandatory program for all dogs. All dogs will go through this program before they are ready for Level 2 or any other specialized training. Your dog will be trained on a number of commands. As this is the  first exposure to training it takes time for us to get the dog into the training mode. Our utmost priority is to ensure that each training session is a fun session for your young dog. So quite naturally in 3 to 4 days your dog will be looking forward for training. We provide a DVD containing videos of your dog performing all the commands it has be trained. In addition to that you will receive a booklet explaining the steps required to achieve the outcome of a command crossrefering to the DVD.

Purpose

Fully condition the dog to be manageable by owner based on commands and subtle body language

Scope 

(a) Respond to commands

(b) Grooming handling and caring

(c) Building attention span and focus on owner

(d) Potty training

(e) Forming of acceptable behaviour and eradication of unacceptable behaviours

 

Requirement

Owners must ensure that their dogs are vaccinated with full coverage and most importantly againsts Kennel Cough. Apart from those, we expect the owners to complete tick treatment as we do not want your dog to be carrying any of the problems to the other dogs that come here for training and boarding. As a proof, owners must present the medical card. We do not want to take in dogs that will otherwise cause problems for other dogs.

 

How much?

The entire training for Level 1 is RM2500. If you opt to take up the Handling Guide package where you will receive a Handling Guide DVD and Booklet it is additional RM300. As for transportation to pick up your dog before training and sending it back after training,  we charge RM200. The whole package will total up to RM3000 which has to be paid in full before we start the training.

There are more to cover in Level 1 Home Obedience. Depending on the dog we customize the training to suit it the best.  During this period assesment will be done to inform owner as to whether the dog is capable of Level 2 Home Protection.

Level 2 – Home Protection

This training is not meants for all kinds of dog. It is also not breed specific based on my experience. Dogs that we sell to our customers certainly have the temperament for this work. Home protection work is different from the protection work that Sports Dog do in competition. Though certain elements of the approach are the same, the objective is totally different. If your dog barks or is agrresive it certainly doesn’t mean it can qualify for this training. Believe me only a selected number of dogs are capable of this work and you certainly need to be lucky to own one. This is one of the things that I tell customers to keep in mind when they are looking for a puppy. If it is for guarding your home and protecting your family you are not always guaranteed your future puppy can offer you the security that you are expeting it to provide you. Read my article on Guard Dogs to gain better understanding.

Purpose

Building the dog’s confidence level and the ability to guard the owner and the territory of the owner.

Scope

(a) Condition the dog to natural and artificial enviromental stress

(b) Ability to attack and bite with confident and calm

(c) Stand the ground when challenged or intimidated

(d) Continue the fight to protect the owner and the territory despite under stress and distraction

(e) Ability to be under owner’s control when on active protection mode

Based on the scope you will understand that it is obvious that not all dogs are capable to be trained at our Level 2 Home Protection program.

Requirement

Owners must ensure that their dogs are vaccinated with full coverage and most importantly againsts Kennel Cough. Apart from those, we expect the owners to complete tick treatment as we do not want your dog to be carrying any of the problems to the other dogs that come here for training and boarding. As a proof, owners must present the medical card. We do not want to take in dogs that will otherwise cause problems for other dogs.

Similar to Level 1, the entire training for Level 2 is RM2500. If you opt to take up the Handling Guide package where you will receive a Handling Guide DVD and Booklet it will be additional RM300. As for transportation to pick up your dog before training and sending it back after training,  we charge RM200.

Once the training is completed, we will conduct hand-over sessions to simulate scenarios to firmly establish the dog’s action in home protection work in the owner’s premises.
