We specialize in treating cases including (but not limited to):
Each new client starts with a two-hour personality profiling assessment where we:
We also email you a copy of your homework within two business days after your session, so you can print it out and keep it as a reference.
Your dog’s personality profile assesses his/her intelligence level, problem-solving skills, learning style, drives, motivations, personality type, areas of sensitivity, disposition and low thresholds (areas of low tolerance).
With this information, we are able to choose training and behaviour modification techniques that have been specifically designed for your dog’s personality mix, which means quicker and more reliable results for you.
During the first two-hour session we also teach or re-teach commands to your dog that you need working for you in order to fulfill the homework. Depending on your dog’s profile, we can teach anywhere from three to six commands in your first session.
If part of your homework was to direct your dog to go to his/her bed and stay there while you cook dinner in order to build on impulse control, we would break the complex instruction into individual commands and teach them in order, building upon success.
Our use of personality profiling prior to choosing training techniques allows most dogs to learn their basic-to-advanced commands within three sessions – starting on day one!
Canine Foundations has taught me so much in their Dog Walking Certification course. They went into depth about equipment, to their own experiences in the field to then of course the best part - hands on experience with the dogs!
Really good for people like myself with no previous dog walking experience. As well as current dog walkers who’d like to brush up on their knowledge and be educated, up to date with techniques and safety of ourselves and our dogs.
Thank you ladies for a great class!
As well as all my classmates who I’ve networked with! Great positive experience highly recommend!!
