When we think of dog training, we often think 'obedience'. Be obedient. Its what we 'train' our dogs to fit into our human lifestyles. We now know so much more about our canine buddies than ever before. A greater understanding of how they learn and feel provides us with the opportunity to expand our knowledge and way of thinking.
At Dogs Life Skills we believe our dogs are part of our family, in our lives to enhance them.
To make the most of this, we need to guide them in how to live successfully in our world, teaching them our expectations whilst arming them with Life Skills.
The dictionary defines life skills as;
skills necessary or desirable for full participation in everyday life.
Most of us grew up with pets, and to many they are an essential part of our lives. We understand the advantages they offer, the joy they can bring and the love they can give. We all live busy lives and ideally want our pets to fit into them accordingly, which can soon become overwhelming.
We live in a world of rules and regulations. Order and routine. In reality, to be happy, our pets require much of the same.
They come with great responsibility in an ever changing world and its our job to ensure they are well mannered, good members of society.
By setting them up to succeed with guidance, by teaching them the life skills necessary we soon realise the enjoyment they bring to everyday life.
That's where we can help.
