INDOOR / OUTDOOR

The puppy and teen training we offer is for dogs that live for most of the time inside the house with the owner. 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:

The Trainers

Richard

Trainer

"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 refinforcement 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

Trainer

“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.”

 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":

and a nervous Border Colli

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: 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! 

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! 

You can't train puppies...

Myth #1... 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! 

You can't train old dogs...

Myth #2 ...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

Training with food...

Myth #3 ...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. 

Train With Food...

Myth #4... 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, one of our trainers, 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...  

Once My Dog Is Trained...

Myth #5... 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 its life!

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

No Human Food!!!

Myth #6... 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?
