Online Puppy Development Programme
At The Way of the Dog Ltd we have taken time to consider how we can support new puppy owners during this current period of lock-down and restricted movement. Let us be clear from the outset that there is no replacement for one-to-one training that is delivered face-to-face in a real setting. However, that is not currently an option due to government guidelines about key working roles, therefore, puppy owners are forced to seek alternative approaches whilst restrictions are in place. At The Way of the Dog Ltd we can offer puppy owners professional online support that will mentor, guide, and advance you and your puppy despite current forced challenges. Your respective individual learning and development are our distinct priority and we can make it happen regardless of those challenges that we face. We will identify with your personal aims and objectives and we will help you achieve them.

What is our approach to puppy development?
Puppy or dog training of any kind with The Way of the Dog Ltd is balanced and measured and is focused on supporting and nurturing a positive learning environment. We routinely adopt a positive and intelligent approach that is based on both the puppy and client learning and enjoying themselves. We identify with your aims and objectives and support you to achieve them.
Our methods and approaches may vary depending on the individual needs and motivations of the puppy. Notwithstanding, we are always ethical and always transparent ensuring that the welfare of both puppy and client are uppermost in our minds. We always consider the character and temperament of the puppy, leading and handling the dog intelligently.
We are highly experienced and successful in working with the full spectrum of guardian breeds. However, we do not use any equipment that is aversive in nature and designed to inflict pain on your dog. We forge healthy relationships and not relationships based on fear.
The Way of the Dog Ltd adopts a wholly inclusive approach to training and we support the individual needs of our clients.
What do our puppy development programmes focus on?
Our one-to-one puppy development programmes focus on the following;
- The laws of learning
- The development of the puppy’s response reliability.
- The promotion of engagement and focus.
- The building of stimulus and impulse control.
- The growth of confidence, resilience, and, empowerment.
In simple terms, we support you to grow as one.
How is our puppy development programme delivered?
For an enriching learning experience and for the purposes of increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome we enlist clients for an initial 4 x 1-hour sessions (this is a minimum requirement). This may be broken down into shorter sessions depending on the individual puppy.
Following the 4 session package clients we will review where we are all up to and where appropriate clients may be invited to book further supportive sessions.
The programme will be delivered online utilising video conferencing facilities, an individual ejournal, and email.
We look forward to working with you and advancing your knowledge and handling skills.
