Barkers In Balance - Lake Macquarie Area

Introducing a dog into a human household is potentially a clash of cultures. Dog behaviours that humans want to label as “bad” are viewed as normal dog behaviours in the dog’s culture. It is the responsibility of the humans to refine the dog’s behaviours by eliminating the unwanted behaviours without punishing the dog.

We describe our approach as “Balanced” as we promote two major engagements with the dog to create the behaviours we want, we set up the dog to give us those behaviours and positively reinforce the behaviour so that the dog will naturally want to repeat those behaviours. We never ever administer an aversive to the dog. We do not shout, pull against the dog on a lead or intimidate a dog in any way. Courses include:

- Puppy schools
- Level 1 Good Manners
- Level 2 Advance Good Manner
- Level 3 Off Lead & Tricks
- Growly Dogs
- Home visits
