🐶 WHAT IS FULLY TRAINED? 🐶
DOG TRAINING (gundog, guide dog, tracking dog, hiking dog, beach going dog etc) they all take a large amount of time to train to the standard where they can actually go out and do what it is you want!
All this depends on lots of things, type of nature, breed, age, bad habits, previous experiences, time you have for training, access to the right training environments etc
If you want to cut corners the by almeans do so but you won’t get on well at Bawdenflight...it’s meant to be hard work but enjoyable too.
If it’s not hard work your not challenging yourself and your dog enough!
If I take a dog shooting and something goes wrong then it’s my fault because my dog isn’t ready.
Yes I can have a dog in the field earlier than most, at the beach (and still well trained) earlier than most but that’s because my dogs start that training at a young age, I don’t let bad habits creep in, I go as fast as the dog can handle and I give the dog the time in NEEDS each day not once a week while at the beach because “I can’t leave Rover at home!”
We have people that come to us weekly, fortnightly or monthly for long periods of time and they are reaping the rewards not because their dog has improved the one time it was at Bawdenflight but because the handler improved in that time and now has the skills to teach the dog the rest of the 99% of the time!
Put in the hard work you will get results, dog training isn’t easy and that’s why we love it. Dogs like challenge and a different task each day because they are learning. Be a good teacher! ... See MoreSee Less
