We bet every dog owner agrees the following three things:

“First, prevention is a million times better than cure. Second, a dog is never happy when they got behavioural issue. Third, your life will definitely be ruined when the dog has behavioural problem.”

You might be thinking your dog is behaving great at this point. But the question is will it last forever? It depends on how well you fulfill their needs. The true needs of dog are leadership and reward. This training course helps the owner to understand how to establish and stabilise the leadership position in the dog’s perspective as well as how to give rewards at the right time to reinforce the wanted behaviour. When you satisfy the dog’s needs constantly, the dog’s good behaviour can be sustained.

By participating in the course, you will enjoy a great deal of fun while creating a stronger bonding with your dog. Most importantly, it helps to prevent the unwanted behaviour from occurring in the future. Eventually, the dog can fit in your lifestyle perfectly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What method will you use to train my dog?

Different dogs require different training strategies. First, dog trainer will figure out the root cause of the problem. Then, trainer will introduce appropriate training methods, tools and activities which suit your dogs to engage. In the process, dog psychology will be explained to facilitate the communication between the owner and the dog.

Would my dog feel upset for training?

All methods used in our lessons are derived from scientific research and proven to be safe and harmless to dogs. We adopt positive reinforcement method which physical punishment is forbidden. We aim to shape a balanced and satisfied dog by fulfilling their true needs. We can’t guarantee the dog is extremely happy in the learning process as learning is about stepping out of the comfort zone. But one thing is sure, the dog is absolutely unhappy when he or she is having the behavioural problem. In the long run, dog training is beneficial to you and your dog’s relationship.

How can you guarantee my dog's behaviour will be improved and long lasting?

To what degree the problem can be improved and sustained depending on many factors, such as the dog’s learning ability, the frequency of practicing the assigned exercises and the owner’s willingness to change. Dog trainer will display all necessary skills that should be used to rehabilitate the dog in different circumstances and teach you how to do it. Through ongoing practice, we believed that the problem can be alleviated gradually.

How many lessons are required to reach the training target?

Dog trainer will evaluate your dog’s situation to decide how many lessons are required. The number of lessons can be adjusted according to the actual progress. Our basic plan is 3 lessons in which the first lesson will scrutinise the reason of the problem, explain the methods to be used, demonstrate and teach you how to use the correct tools & methods. The second lesson will be focusing on tackling the problem and consolidating the owner’s skill. The third lesson will be strengthening the leadership position of the owner and further following up of the problem. Typically, the lesson will be carried out on a weekly basis. For every week, owner can do the given exercise & activity with your dog according to the dog trainer’s instruction and send a video for the dog trainer to follow up the situation. Of course, every case is unique, for those serious case which owner needs support tremendously, the class will be held more frequently.

What should I prepare for the dog training lesson?

Basically, the dog trainer will bring all the necessary tools to the lessons. Since every dog is unique, we advise client to prepare attractive food and toy that your dog is responsive to. Once the dog is displaying ideal behaviour, reward will be given. If you do not know what your dog’s favourite reward is, please buy a few kinds of toys and treats and do the trial and error test. Soon, you will get the answer. Reward can be any form. It can also be a verbal praise or even a massage from your hand. Therefore, attractive toys and foods are just the basic. You can prepare anything that your dog likes but most importantly, it is safe and harmless.

When and where are the class held?

The class will be held at the mutually agreed time slot. The training class takes place at where the dog lives and where the problems occur. We believe this is the most effective and direct way to solve the problem.

I am busy and can't attend the lesson, can I pass the dog to the dog trainer for training?

Many times, we had heard owners complaining of their dogs only listen to my wife or my husband, but not me. It is because a dog is reacting to a human’s attitude, energy and behaviour, not because of who you are. In other words, it is very crucial for the owner to attend the class and learn how to treat their dog correctly. If you do not join the class, you will not gain the skill to send the right message to your dog. As a result, the dog will not behave unless the trainer is here. Perhaps you are now wondering it’s like training the owner more than the dog. Yes, you are right. Your dog will be fine if you are a well-trained dog owner.

Does everyone in the family need to attend the class?

We do not require all family members to join all the lessons but we do encourage every family member to participate in the class to strive for the optimal result. Since the golden rule in dog training is consistency, we hope all family members are on the same page and treat the dog in the same way. Otherwise, it will end up with confusing the dog and he or she will only listen to some family members but not all.

What is the cancellation policy?

To receive a 80 % of paid refund, training appointments must be cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the reserved training time. For cancellation made within 48 hours, 50 % of paid fee can be refund. If you would like to reschedule the appointment, there will be $50 of rescheduling fee. There will be no refund if client cancels the lesson because of any private personal reasons.

The training classes could be in English or Cantonese according to your request. Our dog trainers can speak fluent in both languages.

Angela has been helping us to train our 9 months old yorkie. She’s very knowledgable and experienced with animals. Very soon after she arrived during our first class, our dog was already much more well behaved. She also followed up with us in between the classes, sharing more tips to help us improve our home training and always super encouraging. I hope our dog will learn fast enough!

FIVE STARS!!!

My boy didn’t take it too well after staying at the dog hotel twice and his behaviour changed dramatically so we stopped travelling ever since.

Thanks to the Pet Sitting Diary, we could have a little get away. Angela visited us once before the service and noted down all the details. At first we were a bit worried if Keung was too difficult to deal with coz he got anxious easily but Angela handled him perfectly . We received very detail updates instantly everytime she arrived our flat until right before she left.

Angela also shared with us the dog walking technique that we could probably look into for Keung. She’s professional, caring and very patient . So glad we found the Pet Sitting Diary and met Angela. We are no longer grounded 

Sue Ann Law

Although we have read many books about dog training, it’s never easy to practice with our 4-month-old puppy. After the first lesson, our pup have already succeeded in potty training! It’s magic! Also, we learnt how to instruct the over-energetic puppy to stay calm and behave.

Angela is so willing to share her knowledge and experience with us, I can see our puppy will be growing into a well-mannered dog  Thank you Angela for her professionalism and patience!
