    Why & What are Teen Training Classes

    Do you have a nice dog that's a bit out of control? Ignores you?

    Nips people? Pulls like hell on the leash? Barks all the time?

     

    It's often said that most of our dogs' bad habits have been taught to the dog by us - using positive reinforcement! In class we explain how not to.

     

    In our Teen Classes we attempt to show owners how to undo unwanted behaviour that the dog had already learned. This includes:

    • Understanding Aggressive Behaviour vs Aggressive Dogs
    • Focus & Attention & Redirection
    • Resource Guarding
    • Excessive Barking
    • Walking on a Loose Leash

    Understanding DO vs DON'T

     

    If by the end of your first class you decide this training doesn't meet your needs just let us know and we will refund your fees in full. https://www.puppytraining.my/#faq

    How to create a Canine Good Citizen?

    As proof that your teen dog has improved we base our Teen Classes on the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen training. After the six classes, you can come back at any time, and take and get the CGC Certificate. (FREE - fee included in your Teen Training course fee)

     

    The American Kennel Club created the Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) training program as a stepping-stone to other exams, such as those given for therapy dogs, and is a good starting point for more advanced dog training. Details are here.  

     

    Note: a CGC Test Cert is required by DBKL for several breeds - see below.

    FAQ Teen Training classes

    Classes

    It is six classes - three training classes, then a week's break - then the final three classes. The last two are in "real-life" situation at Desa ParkCity.

     

    Optional Test

    Cost of test is included in the series lesson fees. If you fail you're welcome to redo at a later date (no additional charge).

     

    Missed Classes

    Students often have to be "outstation". You're welcome to make up any missed clases (free) during the next series.

     

    No Class Option

    If you feel your dog can pass the CGC Test without any further training, then you can take the test with the other students without attending classes. Test Fee RM150 (pass or fail)

    Suggestion: watch this video  If your dog can do this, you can probably pass the CGC test without additional training.

    "I've always felt that the primary focus of most dog owners was simply to learn how to enjoy their pet as a pet, a friend and a companion. Our aim is to create "Bistro Dogs" - dogs that are welcome everywhere!"

     

    Richard is a member of the Malaysian Kennel Association (MKA) and an authorized evaluator for the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Trick Dog programs.
