Dog training is a great way to build trust and mutual respect while bonding. A well trained dog with good manners is more manageable, relaxed, content and confident and this results in better quality of life for the dog.
The trainer learns the importance of patience, consistency and understanding the dog. The use of force free training methods also teach us that violence is not necessary to get what we want and helps to nurture kindness and compassion.
These are just some of the benefits experienced by those attending our township dog school in Mpophomeni.
These photos of our senior class show our top handlers in action enjoying quality time with their dogs.
