Whether it’s “Calm down”, “slow down”, “ lie down” or even just “sit down” that you are looking for we aren’t going to lie to you. You have to put in the time to get the dog you want.
But you don’t have to become a dog trainer to improve your dog’s social skills . You and your dog can both have fun while playing simple two-minute games.
Games that Train is an innovative five-week program that helps dogs of all ages develop:
- Loose leash walking
- Reliable recalls
- Focus and attention on you in distracting situations
- Impulse control – get rid of jumping, biting, barking
What are the benefits of game-based training?
It’s fun for both you and your dog. When it’s fun you and your dog will want to play more often!
FRUSTRATION AND FAILURE ARE REPLACED BY FUN AND SUCCESS
Games provide frustration-proof learning. The games are broken down into simple progressions and success is built into every level.
The games are based on the very real science of animal learning and behaviour. They have been tested on many dogs in our programs so we know they work!
YOU CAN EASILY TRANSFER THE GAMES INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE
The games are portable and designed to be played anywhere in life. We will ensure that you know how to apply them to problem-solve in all real-life situations.
Games that Train have made all the difference in my three rescued cattle dogs. They have transformed from nervous, sometimes disobedient dogs into happy, eager to please well-mannered dogs. And all from playing the “games” for a few minutes every day!”
