Dog Behaviour Modification
You’ll be surprised how quickly and easily a dog behavioural problem can be solved - the majority with only one consultation with a Craig A. Murray Dogschool trainer. One of our Dog school trainers will come to your home and take you and your dog through an intensive private dog training program that will identify why the problem has happened and how to remould the dog’s unwanted patterns into positive lessons that can then be rewarded to reshape wanted behaviours this can take anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours.
There is a more substantial amount of work to be done with a multiple dog family as not only are we targeting each individual dog’s problems, but also working on pack order within the family and the dogs, so we will need to spend longer with you and your dog's.
At Craig A. Murray Dog Training we do not believe in giving you solutions to mask the unwanted behaviours, it is far better to be able to identify the problem so that the correct learning patterns can be instilled into your dogs mind. This consultation consists of both theory and practical components. Below are just a few of the dog problems that can be solved through behaviour modification consultations.
Please note: that anything aggression based will be handled by Craig A. Murray as we currently have 2 trainers off on maternity leave and our other trainers do not have the qualifications currently to handle these cases. Craig undertakes these lessons at his Loganlea Address on a Monday - Friday. He does have a waitlist for training so please be aware you will have to wait 5 - 8 weeks for an appointment.
We do have another option for Online Training with our trainer Kelly who can also assist with Aggression or Separation Anxiety Cases. You can read more about that by clicking the PDF.
Private Dog Training Lessons
One on One with you and your Dog and a Dogschool Trainer
We now offer dog and puppy owners what we term as 'structure lessons' in the family home. This is where one of our Craig A. Murray trained Instructors will personally attend your home and view you and your family with your pup or dog. This allows us to observe and identify any behaviour problems or behaviours that can lead to upcoming problems such as nuisance or aggression or even fear or any undesirable behaviours.
Once we have observed and seen how you interact and the dog's normal behaviour, we can then explain to you and your family what are your good and desirable behaviours you should reward your dog for doing and we explain and demonstrate how this works. We also point out the totally undesirable behaviours and the not so desirable behaviour and then we explain how to diminish these and also demonstrate so you see that it is absolutely possible with your own eyes. We explain about dog psychology, temperament and behaviour principles. We will educate you in how dogs think and how smart they are and the types of things that drive or motivate your dog. We also teach a myriad of control, calming and training techniques that will help you gain a great pet and companion that is a pleasure to own and reduce the stress and work necessary.
Structure classes are the step before full behaviour clinics and will fix relationship problems
and minor behaviour problems.
We encourage the maximum amount of family members to be present so they can demonstrate and enquire regarding individual behaviours the dog does with each family member. This also allows us to ensure the greater number of the family members are all on the same page and are equipped with the same methodology hence greatly enhancing the success rates of the dog and family relationships.
If you wish to book a one on one dog structure lesson, please call head office on 3200 5421 or 0400 741 660
