HDDT K9 Services is a professional and friendly dog and puppy training service. We specialise in puppy training, tracking and personal protection training. We train dogs and teach humans. It is vitally important that not only does the dog learn to be obedient, but humans learn to treat dogs correctly. We train dogs with positive reinforcement training which means that we reward the dog when it does what we want. We don’t use any aversive techniques like prong and shock collars or physical punishment.
• We absolutely love training puppies! Our main aim is to create well rounded, obedient, and loyal family pets. We dedicate ourselves to getting the best out of puppies and offer training from basic obedience all the way to advanced obedience and protection training. We offer advice on nutrition, exercise, mental stimulation and much more!
• For the older dogs we are committed to getting the dogs back on the right path and strive to develop the obedience and drive in dogs that may have been given the run of the house and have become unruly.
