Portugese water dog

Portugese Water dog puppy

Lily is a 5 month old Portugese water Dog Puppy from Danjek Kennels.
She has completed a 2 week long in home, intensive training program.
Lily has learned the basics and has done all of her training both on and off leash.

Essential commands to teach your puppy

Every dog Should know how to :

  • Heel
  • Sit & Stay
  • Go to their place and Stay
  • Come when called
As well as manners like not jumping up , not nipping and not putting things in their mouth that are undesirable.

Take a look at Lily doing all of this after 2 weeks of training.

Off leash training builds focus

Lily is trained both on and off leash.  This provides clarity and focus in training and teaches a dog to be reliable to commands.  Take a look at how focused and precise Lili is - even with people petting her and with the people passing her while she obeys off leash.

Nervous and fearful puppies need help to build their confidence

Lily is a sweet and social dog - but anxious.  Neighbours have commented on the changes in her since the start of her training - a more confident dog now.  She accepts the petting of the people on the sidewalk with ease and confidence.  In particular the gentleman with the vacuum - this would have stressed her and caused her to run prior to training.  Now it is not only easier to handle her - but Lili benefits from the added confidence of knowing she can sit there and all will be fine.

The cute and playful puppy got out of hand

The cute little puppy grows up to be a large and powerful dog. All of a sudden his antics aren't so funny any more.  What was once cute and funny now has become annoying and tiresome and despite how much as you love your dog he is becoming harder to live with.
Sound familiar?

Did some training already but didn't quite work

Like many people who call me to help with their dog - Slash's owners had already done a training course with their dog and unfortunately for them it dint provide the help they were looking for.

One of his owners' concerns was that he would just play dead during training.  This is what he did with his last trainer.

This is a form of avoidance and a very clever one at that.  It is up to the trainer to make sure this doesn't happen and to work with he dog's natural and playful instincts to bring out the best from him in training.
Slash is bred by Adriana Krupp of
Danjek Kennels and she recommended his owner give me call for some help.

My dog jumps, bites runs away and does not listen

Slash's energy level and drives were making daily life with him a challenge, Take a look at his video and you can see he is an intense dog.  Without proper training and direction he is trouble walking.  Post training he is a delight and a lot of fun.

I want a well trained dog but I don't want a robot.

Neither do I.
A lot of people worry about this and I don't blame them.  it is a common concern for good reason - a lot of trainers and training methods remove the dog's character for the sake of obedience.  I think it is plain to anyone who watch es Slash in this video that he is still a very spirited dog - yet able to be very obedient when asked to do so.

I want my dog to listen around distractions, come when called, heel properly and stop pulling on leash, and listen to me when he is excited

Have a look:-)
