We subscribe to the Reward Based training model and utilise reward 'markers' such as a Clicker or other sound. We believe that training should be fun and enjoyable for both the owner and the dog.
Ric Calder has undergone studies in Dog Psychology and Training and has an aim of strengthening the bond that exists between owner and dog by gentle positive reinforcement reward based training. He has been handling dogs in the dog care industry for over 10 years.
Ric believes it is important to understand the underlying causes of dog behaviour that owners wish to correct. He will then develop a plan with the owner in order to correct the undesired behaviour.
/>He is available for private consultations in all areas of dog behaviour and training.
Ric also presents a unique bite prevention program to schools on a voluntary basis, it is a sad fact that in Australia almost 1400 people are admitted to hospital as a result of a dog bite. Children up to 4 years have the highest rate of serious injury and almost 50% of injuries are caused by the family pet. If interested for your school please call Ric to discuss.
Dog owners can face fines of up to $10,000 and/or 12 months imprisonment if their dog attacks another person or animal and is unprovoked.
Dog ownership creates an obligation to have a well behaved dog that is in the control of the owner, Ric works with owners to rehabilitate and condition their dog using positive reward based training. He is available for private consultations in all areas of dog behaviour and training.

I have been handling dogs in the pet care industry for over 10 years, I am passionate about dogs being trained in a humane way without harsh punishment. We all get a dog to love us - why spoil that bond by using outdated and harmful training methods.
Please feel free to call me to discuss what methods I use.
I offer a 10% discount if you pre-pay 4 or more sessions.
