    Satisfaction Guarantee

    Love it or your money back!

    If by the end of your first class you decide this training doesn't meet your needs we will refund in full.

    ...and how we do it

    WHOSE DOG IS IT?
    Please note that WE do not train the puppies or teens - YOU train them! This training is designed to show YOU how to train in the areas that matter most to pet owners: barking, biting, house training, walking on a loose leash.

    INDOOR/OUTDOOR

    Also - our training is designed primarily for dogs that live most of the time inside the house. If your dog is kept outside 24/7 then this kind of training may not be suitable for you or your dog. There are many others offering dog training in KL - two nearby centers are here:
    G-Pet and K9 Academy

    Handfeeding - Start Now!

    If you want to sum up successful dog training in one word, it would be ENGAGEMENT. Start here now!

    Watch these three short videos for an excellent example of the kind of  training we do - the focus on engagement with your puppy or dog - and as a guide to what you should start working on with your puppy at home NOW!

    Handfeeding - Day 1

    Dima Yeremenko (of the Good Boy Dog School, UK)  shows you what he works on in the first few days of a new puppy in the  new home. Handfeeding produces a dog that - right from the beginning -  wants to be good, be rewarded and have as much interaction as possible  with the family!

    Handfeeding - Day 5

    Another dog, same process. Here, Lola, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling  Retriever, is put through her paces during her Day 5 Handfeeding session  at home, this time around other dogs. Note her attitude, focus,  attention span and repertoire - this dog has a long career ahead of her!

    ... and afterwards!

    Dima has many more examples of "afterwards":

    From the Good Boy Dog School UK, run by the Russian dog trainer, Dima Yeremenko, MSc.

    First Day at School?

    What to bring...?

    1) NO BREAKFAST for your dog (water, yes of course)

    2) Bring GREAT TREATS (meaning something your dog is REALLY excited about - chicken, sausage, cooked liver etc. - not dry biscuits!)

    3) COLLAR & LEASH for arriving and leaving (and for  some class exercises). NOTE: if you usually use a harness, then if  possible, please bring a collar as well!

    4) VACCINATIONS please double-check your puppy has had at least two - the second at least 10 days before class starts!

    5) YOUR CLOTHING - please be aware that on occasion you'll be sitting on the floor with your dog on your lap. Wear appropriate clothing.

    6) YOUR DOG'S CLOTHING - None! And no diapers!

    Last Day at School...

    Last class for both the Puppies and the Teens is a Group Walk. This is one of the Teen Class walks, which then joins up with the Puppy Class walk at the end. About 30 dogs (and even more owners) happily co-existing!!

    House Training

    There are many good House Training videos - one is here. We've also created our own PDF on House Training - download it here:

    Dog Training - The Myths

    We don't have the time, space, or energy to cover all the myths about dog training, but here are a few to amuse you!

    Myth #1

    You can't train puppies...

    ... before six months old!

    Nonsense! Wait until then, and you'll have double the work untraining  behaviours you don't want PLUS training the behaviours you do want! The  truth is that your dog is starting to learn from you the moment s/he  arrives in your home. It's up to you to decide WHAT the puppy learns!

    This myth probably originated in the days when "old school" training  methods with heavy collar corrections were used and the young dogs  needed to be old enough to withstand the abuse.

    Luckily, we don't do that any more!

    Myth #2

    You can't train old dogs...

    ...new tricks!

    Older dogs are not the problem... however, older OWNERS are quite difficult to (re)train... but we try!

    In fact, some would say (me, for instance!) that training an older  dog is easier than training a puppy. Older dogs are generally calmer  than young puppies and so have better focus and attention.

    Duke turned up and "adopted" us when he was about six years old. You can see the results here.

    Myth #3

    3.jpg

    Training with food...

    ...is bribery!

    "Bribery" is a human term and implies something illegal (as we  know from politics)! Actually, food is a "marker" - it's a signal  something has been done correctly. In humans this could be an A+ from a  teacher, or a paycheck or bonus from your job! We all "work” for  reinforcements and dogs are no different.

    We usually use food because most dogs love food, but it can be  ANYTHING your dog loves - toys, play, work, petting, happy talk etc.

    Myth #4

    Train With Food...

    ... and you'll never get their attention later!

    When we start reward-based training, our dogs are on a CONTINUOUS reward  system. The dog is rewarded every time it performs something correctly -  or even just for TRYING! Rubini calls it being an  ATM - an Automatic Treat Machine!

    Once the dog has more or less got it, we move quickly onto VARIABLE and  RANDOM reward system. This is similar to a Genting slot-machine - you  know you won't win every time or how much, but next time... 

    Myth #5

    Once My Dog Is Trained...

    ... we can stop using food rewards!

    There is no reason to completely STOP using food in training. Once the trainer has learnt the difference between simply "luring" the  dog and "rewarding" the dog... we hope you will keep your dog on a random reinforcement schedule for the rest of his/her life!

    A very good site for more training tips is Leerburg with hundreds of videos, courses, books, etc. Check them out. Link below:

    Myth #6

    No Human Food!!!

    ... dogs should only get dog food!

    We've had dogs around us for at least 10,000 years. We've had today's commercial dog food for about 70 years. So for 9,930 years, we've been feeding our dogs... what exactly?

    The Strange History of Commercial Dog Food by Dr Becker, a US vet, is worth reading! Link below:

    What Dog Owners Should Know About the Alpha Roll

    If you are not familiar with the term, an Alpha Roll is when you physically force your dog onto its side or back into a submissive position and hold it there, supposedly to show them that you are the dominant one in the relationship and they should defer to you.

    Advocates of the technique liken dogs to wolves and suggest that to have a successful relationship, you must take charge, or your dog will try to assert its dominance over you.

    Science-based, force-free training methods, however, are proven to be more effective and also ensure that you develop a much healthier, happier relationship with your dog..../MORE

    Richard

    "I've always felt that the primary focus of most of the dog owners taking their dogs to classes here in Malaysia was not to enter competitions but simply to learn how to enjoy their pet as a pet, a friend and a companion.  We started Puppy Training @ The School by Jaya One in 2011 based on Dr. Ian Dunbar's positive reinforcement puppy training with the aim of turning prisoners into pets - one dog at a time!"

    Richard has had dogs all his life, some of which have appeared on TV, film and stage. Two of them are here and here.

    Rubini

    “I use Positive Reinforcement Methods. This form of training is still very new in Malaysia. What this basically means, is that I don't use any harsh methods to train the dogs. No choke chains, collars, pulling, jerking or yelling at the dogs. Instead I use high value motivation rewards to encourage them to perform the commands.”
