FOUNDATIONS IS A GREAT PLACE TO START, OR TO START AGAIN

Foundations was designed to get you working with your dog right away. It’s structured to guide you through how to set up any command, skill or behaviour you desire. By following the fundamentals and key concepts, you will feel equipped to support your dog through whatever stage you are in. You will gain a much deeper understanding of your dog, which will strengthen your overall relationship and trust.

FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS ARE THE KEY TO A GREAT PET

Foundational skills are the building blocks required to accomplish changes in behaviour, strengthen the relationship you have with your dog, and reach your desired goals. When you work on foundational skills only, it can have a huge impact on your dogs overall manners. A strong set of foundational skills will really allow you to do anything you want with your dog.

“SOMETIMES” IS DANGEROUS

If your dog comes when they are called ‘sometimes’ or stays where they are ‘sometimes, that could be a recipe for disaster. Likewise if the environment or present distractions changes your dogs reliability, that too can be frustrating or unsafe. Trusting that your dog knows their manners and will respond to you in all environments and distractions is what we should all strive for. Foundations was created to help you turn those ‘sometimes’ into ‘always’.

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED

It might seem like each skill is separate from the other, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. How your dog walks on a leash will influence how perfect your dog is coming to you when called. Your dog’s ability to hold a stay until released influences your dogs ability to say hello politely to strangers. Foundations will help you understand these connections so you can get the behaviours you want from your dog.

REALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR DOG

Foundations teaches you how your dog thinks, how your dog learns, and why your dog acts or responds in the way they do. Understanding your dog is the key to helping them.
