  • Puppy Academy: Early Manners & Socialisation

    Puppy Academy focuses on those essential experiences for your puppy in its first few months of life.

    This includes exposure to other puppies, exposure to lots of different people, common and uncommon sounds and all kinds of objects. This helps to build your puppy’s confidence and exposure to new experiences. Here at ABT we also get started on some basic obedience for your puppy. Teaching them manners from an early age helps to prevent rebellion later which builds a good foundation of trust and respect for you and your puppy. We also include lots of information and assistance with all those puppy-joys such as toilet training, mouthing and teething! During classes, puppies will be learning:
    • how to give attention when asked
    • to be calm
    • commands such as sit and drop
    • general manners
    • to come when called
    • leash walking skills
    • Leave, wait and give
    • Mat training
    For more information, please contact us. The first week is run with no puppies present so your instructor can get to know you, and you can learn the theory behind dog training and how dogs learn without the distraction of your puppy.

  • Advanced SkillsAdvanced Skills class incorporates different types of classes into one. Assistance Dog Training, Treiball, Doggy Dancing, Trick Dog Training and Scent Detection Training. We can help you to train one of these areas or multiple.

    Advanced/ Assistance Dog Skills 

    Thursday night 8.30pm weekly

    ASSISTANCE DOG TRAINING You may require your dog to help you with your day to day life, especially if you have limitations of your physical abilities. Or you may have a spouse or child that could benefit with the help from your dog. We can train many different Advance Skills, for example opening the door or fridge door, remove your shoes and/or socks, alerting you to a sound or sight, picking up items. TREIBALL Treibball (pronounced try-ball) is an awesome new dog sport and is a fun game for dogs of any size or breed. Dogs learn to run around 8 large exercise balls, pushing the balls one at a time with their nose or shoulder straight into the goal as quickly as possible. Treibball promotes better teamwork and communication between dog and handler as they develop skills in distance work and impulse control. During this class your dog will learn how to play the game, which involves:
    • Out runs
    • Orientation
    • Distance work
    • Nose targets & ball push
    • Impulse control
    • Increase speed
    • Goal scoring
    DOGGY DANCING Doggy Dancing provides handlers and their dogs with an opportunity to demonstrate a skilful, choreographed routine, performed to music.  While having its foundation in obedience heelwork, Doggy Dancing enables the handler to include innovative and creative moves and movement in time to music, giving the illusion of dance.   In Heelwork to Music (HTM), another division of DoggyDancing, which is more closely aligned to obedience heelwork, the dog performs in one or more of the prescribed heelwork positions for at  least 60% of the routine. Doggy Dancing is suitable for handlers of all ages and dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages.  There are no compulsory moves in Doggy Dancing Freestyle and the handler develops the routine to showcase the individual dog’s strengths and can omit moves which the dog finds difficult or which are not yet perfected. In Doggy Dancing, handlers and their dogs develop a terrific rapport and, most of all, have fun doing it!  Spectators also thoroughly enjoy watching the sport and seeing the enjoyment of the dogs and marvelling at their achievements. TRICK DOG TRAINING Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert and Champion levels Trick Training is a great way to develop a closer bond with your dog as you work towards goals and enjoy the fun. It helps to improve communication and understanding with your dog and can also increase your dog's confidence, strength, balance and focus. Throughout the class you will be assessed by Amy Van Dyk to gain points to achieve your NTD (Novice Trick Dog Title), ITD (Intermediate Trick Dog Title), ATD (Advanced Trick Dog Title), ETD (Expert Trick Dog Title) and eventually even Champion Trick Dog Title through 'Do More With Your Dogs USA' (the official sanctioning and organising body for the sport of Dog Tricks). SCENT DETECTION TRAINING The objective is to teach the dogs to discriminate one scent and indicate it. We begin by improving the relationship/communication between dog and owner so it works for our goal of scent detection. Then, we teach the dog the indication behavior that we want it to show us when it detects the target scent. The next step consists of getting the dog acquainted with the target scent (and to indicate it). Finally, we move to discrimination where the dog has to identify the target scent from among others. Finally, we move to blind detection where the target scent is hidden in a location unknown to both dog and owner.

  • Introduction to Self Control and Relaxation WorkshopIs your dog - Hyperactive? Hyperstimulated? Anxious? Stressed? Self Control and Relaxation will help you and your pooch! Benefits of massage include:
    • Increases blood circulation and body awareness.
    • Relaxes the body and therefore transfers to relaxation of the mind.
    • Increases bond and trust between the dog and owner.
    • Helps increase tolerance to handling and other important activities such as: grooming, vet checks, etc.
    • Will help identify any sore places or areas of the body that may require medical attention.
    Self-control definition The ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires in difficult situations. Classic human examples Have you ever had a potato chip or two and pretty soon you’ve eaten the whole bag? Eating a whole bag of chips shows little self-control. Not charging an expensive thing you want to a credit card takes self-control. Getting up early for work takes self-control. Without self-control, it's hard to get far in life. Examples of self-control and impulse control in relation to our dogs:
    • The dog wants to play with a toy but is told to wait until being told to go free.
    • Learning to resist the temptation to jump on people to greet them.
    • Wanting to run away from owners when free but resisting the urge.
    • Seeing something they want to run after and chase but resisting the desire.
    • When in a situation that causes heightened levels of stress or excitement resisting the urge to over-react and staying calm and focused.
    Why would we want to teach self-control to our dogs?
    • The purpose behind teaching self-control is to empower your dog with greater confidence in facing new situations appropriately therefore making the most of all life situations.
    • If your dog can learn self-control then its ability to cope with stressful and otherwise eventful life situations will be increased this in turn will increase the dog’s freedom and ability to explore and enjoy new environments, make new friends and enjoy making the most of life.
    • A dog with good self-control can regulate it’s emotions better and control its response to situations better when faced with difficulties or over-whelming experiences teaching your dog self-control will increase its confidence as it will learn the ability to think about a situation when under a bit of pressure, weigh up the consequences and choose an appropriate reaction to the situation at hand.
    • Without you teaching self-control they will lack independence and will constantly rely on you to direct their behaviour and actions and be under continual supervision in all circumstances.
    • If a dog is not taught to deal with situations that may be stressful or unsettling they will in the long-term miss out on many fun and enjoyable experiences.
    What are some of the reasons that dogs would struggle to naturally exhibit self-control? 
    • Anxiety
    • Over-excitement
    • Lack of emotional control
    • Fear
    • Over-stimulated
    • In an over-stimulated state of mind or more stressful or exciting situation then what they are normally accustomed to.
