OBLIGATORY COURSES

Getting a dog makes the owner responsible for insuring that this dogs life is as species appropriate as possible. This means that the owner must instruct the dog in a clear manner on how to behave in our human environment. The key to the dog is and will always be the wolf, as even the tiniest dog is a descendant of the wolf.

Basic obedience will be taught without the aid of food or toys. A bond of trust schould be built between the dog and the owner,  which is based on mutual respect and understanding. The dog learns that cooperation leeds to succes and will get their reward through attention and share of affection. The owner learns how to lead his/her dog in a manner that is clear, species appropriate and free of conflict, in order to build a solid foundation for their life together.

Please note that all of our courses can be attended with booking only

 

If you're unable to attend a lesson of a course, you can do the missed lesson at a later date.
