Positive coaching for your dogs

The CanoCoach is all about helping you strengthen your relationship with your dog and helping you to encourage good behaviours with positive training methods. We can help you whatever stage of training you are at – from puppy classes through to learned poor behaviours such as:

  • Simple behaviours from sit, recall and stop through to down, heel and stay.

  • Walking nicely on a lead – no more pulling or sore arms!

  • Poor or learned behaviours such as guarding and reactivity.

Consultations

We offer one to one consultations in the comfort of your own home including all family members – and your dog/s! The fee includes:

  • Pre-consultation questionnaire to provide initial insight into your dog and your situation
  • Consultation of up to 90 minutes which delves further into behaviours and challenges you may be facing – dependent on time this may include some initial training
  • Full follow up report with recommendations and training plan overview
  • Follow on support should you go onto 121 training sessions.

Phone on 0121 447 8133 or email us for more information and prices.

121 Training

Having undertaken a 121 Consultation and agreed a training plan we can then work with you, your dog and your family on specific agreed behaviours. Positive reinforcement training is always with the dog in mind, and how you can improve your time together as a team. Some common behaviours we encounter include:

  • Guarding (food and/or toys)
  • Pulling on the lead
  • Reactivity to other dogs
  • Emergency stop and recall
  • and many, many other traits

We can help with these and many other behaviours working in a calm environment such as your home or garden – and then expanding into the wider environment such as local walks and parks.

Group Classes

Group classes are coming soon starting with puppy classes in the New Year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we are often asked.

Yes you can! Pulling on a lead is not good for you or dog.  Imagine a world where you can have your dog on a loose lead at all times. It takes time and patience but with training, loose lead walking can be achieved.
Ensuring your dog comes to call is essential to it’s safety – coming away from a busy road, another dog or child, or away from broken glass. This is an excellent behaviour for your dog to learn and can be taught in class or during 121s.
 
Teaching eye contact is foundation to all good behaviour – including listening and responding to you. A great way to bond with your dog and for him to start ‘listening’ to you.
 
Guarding bowls and or toys is very common in dogs but it is something to be avoided. With training your dog can learn that it’s OK to share it’s belongings.
We all know that diet is essential for a healthy lifestyle – over eating anything might lead to weight gain. But if you control the overall intake according to your dog’s breed, size and lifestyle, you should be able to maintain a healthy weight.
 
Imagine that you are your dog? How would you like to be pulled around, have your bottom shoved to the floor, or constantly be shouted out. Research shows that we respond much better to positive reinforcement – praise, rewards, gifts – dogs are no different. As IMDT trainers we only advocate positive reinforcement methods.
 

“Having had the pleasure of meeting Sarah through a dog trainers course, I can say I fully recommend her. Sarah has a wonderful way with dogs (even winning over my particularly picky and grumpy Kelpie), and equally as important, she has a wonderful way of coaching. She instantly puts you at ease and makes learning fun for both you and your dog!”

Aimee Tippett, Padfoot Dog Training

“We had our first training session yesterday for our cheeky 14 week old cockapoo. Sarah is really friendly and very knowledgeable. We are practising hard with Piper at home and look forward to her future sessions. Thanks

The H family, Alvechurch
