A dog in young age finds learning and accepting new things a thousand times easier than in adult age. Without a doubt, it’s the best timing to instill the right concept and shape the wanted behaviour in puppyhood. Therefore, puppy training is always regarded as crucial and indispensable.

Besides, having early temperament training can significantly influence the mental development of a dog. An owner has the responsibility to make sure your puppy is receiving the proper education like sending your kid to the kindergarten to expose them to all the things they should know.

We provide training on basic commands, home-manner and proper socialisation with dogs and humans. Having appropriate learning goes a long way towards establishing a puppy’s confidence and shaping positive character. As a result, it keeps them satisfied and balanced for the rest of their life.

Puppy Biting Problem

Successful Examples

Puppy Leash Training

The little shiba in the video was not used to walk with the leash. She was very sensitive. To fight back, she tried to bite the leash, jump around, and struggle to walk. Any small movement on the leash will trigger her resistance. With trainer Angela’s unlimited patience, she successfully taught the little shiba to accept and follow the leash as well as to stay beside when asked.

Play Discipline

Many puppy owners are crying out loud about the mouthing issue. Some owners even lose the temper and scold the puppy unconsciously for chewing this and that. But scolding never works. The puppy will not obey to the negative emotion but become scared or even chewing more aggressively.

Due to teething, it’s essential for puppies to chew things by mouth to alleviate the discomfort. Therefore, the training goal is to teach the dog what is acceptable to bite and what is not. It’s unrealistic to eliminate the chewing behaviour in puppy age. One of the viable solutions is to introduce the tug game to the dog. Playing tug is a healthy way for a dog to release its energy and help it to stay away from the boring mindset which could lead to destructive behaviour. If the tug play is doing in a systematic way, it not only raises human leader position but also instills a concept to the dog that toy is a good thing to bite. If the dog thinks biting toy is fun and rewarding, what is the point of biting human or the furniture?

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.

What languages are available for classes?

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!
