Looking for a trainer to help you with your Dobermans obenience needs or a luxurious facility with quality daytime care, we can help! We have very knowledgeable trainers/handlers with developed proven techniques to help you train your dog. 

Remember. In order to have a good dog, you need to learn how to be a good dog owner. Learn this and you will find that living and learning with your dog is easier and more fun!

When purchasing a dog or puppy, people should understand that it will, and should be considered a family member, and always treated as such. Spoiling your dog is just fine but they all need training and proper discipline and very importantly, never never never hit your dog, use force or make it feel threatened or scared, ever. If a dog feels threatened of scared it will turn to the only thing it feels will help and that is aggression. 

To have a well behaved pet you must teach your dog common obedience commands, such as; come, sit, heel, stay, down and etc. training  really only requires five - ten minutes of training a day for each command.  

It is important that your children get Involved the training process as early as possible. Your children will need to learn how to handle, raise and care for a puppy properly in to an adult dog and loyal family member.

Crates are only to be used as a training tool. Crates are not meant for a dog to spend most their whole life in one. Creates are designed to help house break a dog and while keeping it safe.  

All dogs may have an accident at some point, more often in puppyhood and sometimes in adulthood. So be prepared to deal with the situation properly and kindly.  

Puppies and dogs can get bored and act out, so keep them busy. Start a routine with your puppy. Go for walks after a meal so your pet can do their business outside.  

Introduce your puppy to new surroundings or new sounds. Socializing is one of the most important parts of raising a well mannered pet. Take your puppy with you as often as possible, introducing your puppy to as many new people and experiences as you can.  

Puppies have very sharp teeth and should never be encouraged to bite your hands or bite at all. Once your puppy is older you defiantly donít want it to be biting anything.

Preventing unwanted chewing is apart of dog ownership. Teach your dog not to chew things you donít want him to chew. Itís all in the training. Every dog wants to chew things, Itís up to the owner to provide positive reinforcement and the proper chew toys, bones etc. Itís easier to change a behaviour before it becomes a habit. Puppies love to chew things, so you must also provide the proper chew toys, bones or raw hide while your puppy is teething.  

Donít forget, arrangements will have to be made for your pet when you go on vacation. You can either perhaps ask a friend or hire a pet sitter or find a good kennel.  

Why your Doberman needs obedience training!

Does your Doberman come back to you when you call? Training your Doberman to come to you when you call or using hand signals, is the most important skill of all. It could save yours or your Dobes life. Example; while out walking in traffic.

Teaching your Doberman to return too and walk on your left side on command, is very important. Unfortunately many owners never teach their dogs.

We teach a range of lessons as well as some basic training. Over 30 years experience in Doberman training.

Training Tips for you and your Doberman.doberman_DSCF5210.JPG (209746 bytes)

Personality: In most cases a dog is the reflection their owners. If you are quick to get excited or nervous you dog may reflect these traits. If you are a calm owner, your dog in most cases will also be calm. An adjustment in you tone, movements and walking speed could make a big difference in pets performance.

Early Start: itís never too early to start training. In fact, sooner is better. Your pup is already learning everyday since it is born. They are born to learn. Puppies should already be introduced to common commands by 8 weeks of age. It is very important to socialize you pup to various people, places, other animals and things. This will help him to be well adjusted to society and he will be more responsive to training. Always verbally praise you pup when they performed a specific task correctly. You can use treats to reward success, but give them less often over time until no treats are needed.

House training: One of the worst things you can do is go out and buy one of the pee mats or something similar youíve seen on TV and Pet stores. These products just teach your pup that itís ok to go in the house and your puppy will never learn to go outside. The best technique is to remember to walk them after a meal or watch your dog 5 min to 30 min after they eat. If you see they are about to do their business quickly take them outside to one spot in the yard you donít mind them doing their business. If they have made a mess then point their nose to the mess and gently tap them on the nose while saying; no, not here. Then take them again to that one same spot in the yard near a corner or under a tree or large bush. Now you will be on the way to a happy house trained pet with only one spot in the yard to clean up.

Feeding & Exercise: One thing you must remember your dog needs plenty of exercise and activity, not just short walks on a leash. Lack of exercise is the number one cause of obesity and health problems in house dogs the other is lack of variety in nutrition or diet.  Donít keep your dog on the same diet week after week, month after month, year after year.  You will find by doing so, that your dog will develop heath problems which in turn will cost you in Vet and medication expenses. While youíre buying food, buy two three or more varieties of food and mix it up for them once in a while. Table scraps are just fine as well, but donít feed them from the table, mix it in with their dog food.

Boundaries: Teaching your dog boundaries is a very important part of owning a dog and keeping it safe. A dog without boundaries can be a nuisance or even a danger to themselves and others.

Hand signals: Incorporating hand signals while teaching commands can be fun and very useful in many situations.

Habits: You will spend the first few months of your time teaching your puppy good habits. Although at first you dog may seems like he wonít cooperate, but be kind, patient and given time, opportunity, your puppy will soon catch on.  Always be kind, firm and consistent when training.

Teething, biting, chewing: Teach your dog not to chew things you donít want him to chew. Itís all in the training. Every dog wants to chew things, Itís up to the owner to provide positive reinforcement and the proper chew toys, bones etc. itís easier to change a behaviour before it becomes a habit.  

Correction: Timing is everything. If too much time passes between his disobedience and you attempt at correction, your dog will not relate.

Begging: Never feed you puppy while at the table or eating something yourself. Doing so will promote bad behaviour. Your dog should have its place where it is fed and should always wait while you fill the bowl, then give the command to eat. If you wish to treat you dog, itís important they do something (a trick) for it. If they donít know one yet, well this is a good time to teach them.

Indoors or outdoors: If you want your dog to live most of it life indoors or out its up to you. You will  need to make a place for your dog where it can feel at home. A spot in the house or yard where your dog can lay down comfortably, and feel like this is their own space. If indoors it should be in the corner of a room or next to the couch or bed but not on the couch or bed. Your dog should only get on the bed by invite. If outdoors it needs to have shelter from the elements. Your dog should always have access to water and fed a least twice a day if small portions or one large portion in the morning. If your dog has plenty of exercise, eats well and has a place of its own, they will be a happy, health and obedient puppy.

Wearing a leash: Your pup is new to this and needs to get use to a lightweight collar first, then afterwards attach the leash. He may not like it at all at first, but if you can associate fun time, game and walks with wearing a leash, it will soon make it easier for the both of you. Wearing a leash is for your pupís safety and well a legal necessity in some places.

Command: have control and follow through with every command. You should always have you dogsí attention when giving a command, by calling his name and have him sit. Always be crisp, clear and firm when giving an order. This way there is not doubt he is being told a command. At first he will not know what to do or what this command means, so you will need to help him along by gently showing him what it is he should be doing. Strengthen your teamwork by having fun. Take a break If either of you start to get frustrated and try again later. Dogs learn through repetition so remember practice makes perfect!
