Happy Paws K-9 Academy
6978 Puppy Classes Street, London Ontario Canada
Training a puppy or a dog is not just about them. In our approach to good canine behavior we not only teach the puppy or dog what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior but we also teach you how your dog perceives what you want.  We will show you how to modify your behavior to get the results you desire.  There are many things that affect your dog's perception such as your body posture, timing, the tone of your voice, and your attitude just to name a few.  We use lots of affection and praise in our techniques.  Unlike many trainers, who take a one-size-fits-all approach to dog training, we believe that there is no one right way to train, but rather, the training method must fit the individual dog and the dog's needs, as well as the handlers capabilities. There are many different training methods out there and in time you will have a well-trained dog; however, why should you spend two years getting the same results we can get you in a few weeks. We have many training packages to suit your needs and one of them will even guarantee off-leash control.  We are located in London Ontario Canada right downtown.

Dog Training, Solving Behavioral Issues and Difficult Dog Rehabilitation.  Train with the Best!

Sherwood Barks Dog Training & Agility in London Ontario Canada specializes in Positive Puppy & Agility Training. Sherwood Barks Puppy Obedience & Socialization classes offer a fun learning environment for the puppy and handler. All classes are presented in a ‘solution focused’ training environment. Puppy class training focuses on rewarding positive behaviors offered by the puppies.
London Ontario Canada puppy Level 1 Class Content:
1. Recalls – out of Play Breaks during class.
2. Socialization – builds confidence in Play with different breeds & sizes of puppies
3. Manners – a calm quiet sitting puppy earns his rewards
4. Obedience – ‘one command = a rapid response’ Every command is followed by a release.
5. Behavioral consults… re: typical puppy problems, ie. Jumping up, nipping, biting,
6. Loose leash walking – no corrective methods such as, choke or pinch collars are permitted in any Sherwood Barks class
The evolution of Dog Training: Dogs are NOT WOLVES…. They are canines which have been domesticated for years, they are social, they understand and thrive with structure, routine, consistency and lots of positive re-enforcement. They learn easily to respect their humans when the humans learn how to communicate clearly with the dog. The dog needs to be taught what the expectations are of living happily in the human world.
Gone are the days of ‘correcting our children’ and punishing them by physical force. This same awareness of positive parenting is a philosophy that holds true in training a new puppy. Children learn best in a positive happy family with clear rules and boundaries. Puppies also thrive when they know what is expected of them and they are rewarded for their good behavior. Negativity, whining, jumping up are largely ignored or the puppy/dog is given a brief time out. Unwanted behaviors will stop with no reward, ie eye-contact, words, or rapid body movements inadvertently given to re-enforcement behaviors.

London Ontario Canada Dog Training has many different objectives: creating a great family pet, basic obedience training, specialized areas including law enforcement, military, search and rescue, agility, hunting, working with livestock, assistance to people with disabilities, entertainment, dog sports, detection dogs and protecting people or property.

Searching for a Dog Training School? Do your homework!! Call and talk with the trainer? Ask questions? Do they use harsh techniques? Do they use positive methods, Is the training reward based? Do they use the clicker? What is clicker training? Are the puppies/dogs allowed to socialize? How long has the trainer been training? What is the background of the trainer?
? Will you be told to use harsh corrections on your puppy, ie jerking the dog with a choke collar? Is that a training style you want to use with your young puppy?
Training Choices:
1. Traditional trainers: Typical encourage the use of punishment, often physically painful punishment, in order to correct dogs.
2.Dominance trainers: Believe all animals have an innate desire to dominate others, and this dominating behavior needs to be punished. Pack Leader Trainers follow this training methodology.
3. Positive Trainers: use the operant conditioning model…. Operant Conditioning is a proven training methodology which focuses on the positive and creates a happy, focused, obedient puppy. It has been proven that is rewarded behavior will be repeated more frequently and become part of the dog’s foundation. (Pavlov’s theory). The dog/puppy is required to ‘think’ and offer the correct behavior. Correct behavior, ie. Sit is reward AFTER the dog offers it.
4. Luring Trainers: This training method is often confused with positive dog training. Steps in Lure Training
1. The food reward is shown first and used as a lure to get a wanted behavior, ie.sit.
2. Next the dog is given a verbal command.
3. The command is often repeated several times.
4. Reward is given after the behavior is given.

The difference is mostly in the scale, as positive trainers tend to employ more reward based principles first, while traditional and dominance trainers are more likely to punish unwanted behaviors first.

London Ontario Canada Puppies should attend puppy socialization classes as soon as they have completed their second set of vaccinations, around 3 months. The sooner the better.
In-home Puppy consultations are often a good choice. It is very important that the puppy understands from day one what is expected of him/her. Potty training, doorway training, crate training, automatic sit & recall training, and manners should begin as soon as the puppy joins his/her new human family. Always, ‘THINK BIG’ ask yourself the question…. “Will, I think it is cute when the puppy is big…ie, jumping up! Barking?”

For The Love of Dog Behavior Training London Ontario Canada

Dominance Myths and Dog Training Realities

Behavior Myth

Real Reason for Behavior

How to Change the Behavior

Your dog barks at you to tell you he's in charge.

•There are numerous underlying factors that can lead to excessive barking such as boredom, fear, and anxiety.
•Owners often inadvertently reinforce barking by giving the dog attention when they are barking, or yelling at the dog, which only strengthens the behavior over time.

•Train the dog to bark and be quiet on command.
•Proper daily exercise, interaction with a dog's human family, and interactive toys such as Kongs® can decrease barking if the dog is barking out of boredom.
•For fearful and/or anxious dogs, determine what is causing the dog's fears and work to desensitize him to them.

Your dog urinates in the house to show you that she owns the "territory" and not you.

•Inconsistent housetraining techniques by the owner lead to dogs that are never 100% housetrained.
•Inappropriate elimination can often be due to an underlying medical condition such as a urinary infection.
•Unneutered dogs will mark territory more often than fixed dogs.

•Go back to "Square one" with your dog and begin housetraining again.
•You must be supervise your dog 100% and be able to take him out when he needs to go and reward him for doing so in order for him to clearly understand what is being asked of him.
•Take your dog to a veterinarian to determine if there is a physical cause for the behavior.

Your dog believes he is in control of the kitchen and is trying to eat before you.

•Dogs are scavengers by nature and if food appears to be available, they will take the chance to "go for it!"
•Dogs who are bored in the home may resort to counter surfing or digging in the trash to alleviate their boredom.

•Teach your dog to stay out of the kitchen and not to jump on the counters.
•Give your dog interactive toys to play with, such as Kongs that you can stuff with food, so he can be steered toward appropriate outlets for his energy.

Dogs jump up on people to assert their height and rank over you.

•Dogs jump up because they have been inadvertently reinforced to do so by inconsistent dog owners.
•Dogs jump up because they want to get closer to our faces to say hello.
•Dogs jump up because ... it's fun!

•Teach the dog to sit when visitors enter the house and reward for this behavior.
•Teach the dog that he only gets attention, treats, etc. when he has all four paws on the floor.
•Make sure everyone who interacts with your dog is on the same page about turning their back on the dog when he jumps up so the behavior is not reinforced in the future.

Dogs pull on leash so they can get out in front of you and be in charge of you and the walk.

•If every time the dog gets to go on a walk, they pull you along without being taught any different, they reasonably understand that this is how walks are supposed to be!
•Getting to go on a walk is a fun-filled and exciting activity for a dog. They pull because they're enthusiastic and want to get out and enjoy the sights and smells of the outdoors.

•Be absolutely consistent with your dog and do not allow him or her to pull you when you go out on a walk. Take the time to teach them what it is that you do want.
•Reinforce the dog heavily for staying next to you, and do not allow the dog to move forward if he is pulling. Teach the dog the "heel" command.
•If your dog is too strong for you, use a management device such as a head halter and use this in conjunction with teaching the dog not to pull so that you can transition to using only a flat collar.

Dogs push you out of the way and run through a doorway ahead of you to show you they're in charge.

•Just like with walking on leash, dogs get easily excited and don't know this is unacceptable behavior if you don't teach them otherwise.
•You only get pushed because you're in the way of whatever it is on the other side that the dog finds interesting and exciting.

•Teach your dog a wait command (or stay command) in door ways and practice so they become used to the idea that you get to come and go first.
•Use baby-gates to block the dog from running through the house and use them to teach behavior such as wait, stay or sit at doorways.

Dogs who think they are boss will ignore you when you call them because they know they don't have to obey.

•Dogs who have not been properly reinforced for coming back to you when called will not understand that "come" means "come here immediately!"
•Dogs become stimulated by their environment and can be easily distracted by other dogs or animals, people, children, grass, trees, cars, etc.

•Teach your dog the come command on-leash until your dog is coming every time when called.
•Reinforce the dog heavily when he does come - it should be 100% clear to him that he did a great thing by complying.
•Never punish the dog if he doesn't come to you - this only teaches the dog that coming to you when he is called is not a "safe" thing to do.

Dogs mount other dogs or people to show that they are dominant.

•Mounting occurs for several reasons which include stress alleviation and play.
•When dogs play they will often take turns mounting each other for fun - the position is one of playfulness rather than an attempt to establish status.

•If the dog is doing this to you, simply give the dog an incompatible behavior to do instead and reward them for doing so, such as sit, down, a trick, or anything else.

Dogs get on the furniture and/or beds to show that they rule the household.

•Dogs get on furniture and/or beds for the same reasons that people do - because they're very comfortable.

•Teach your dog an "off" command so they learn to get down off the furniture when you ask them to.
•If you do not want your dog on the furniture at any time, manage the household so that the dog is not able to get up on the furniture unawares. If they do, this reinforces that it's ok to sit on the furniture - you want to be able to block this from happening using baby gates, tethers, etc.
•Provide the dog with a comfy dog bed or beds of his own and reinforce the dog for choosing to lay on them.
•Finally, if you don't mind having your dog on the furniture but are afraid this means they're dominating you - relax! As long as you are setting the rules and guidelines in your house, it's ok for your dog to be on the furniture with you.

London Ontario Canada dog training is the process of teaching skills or behaviors to a dog. This can include teaching a dog to respond to certain commands, or helping the dog learn coping skills for stressful environments.

London Ontario Canada dog training often includes operant conditioning, classical conditioning, or non-associative learning to achieve the dog performing a desired behavior or skill. A person who trains dogs in London Ontario Canada is said to be a London Ontario Canada dog trainer.

There are many methods of dog training in London Ontario Canada and many objectives, from basic obedience training to specialized areas including law enforcement, military, search and rescue, hunting, working with livestock, assistance to people with disabilities, entertainment, dog sports, detection dogs and protecting people or property.

As pack animals, wild dogs have natural instincts that favor cooperation with their fellow dogs. Many domestic dogs, either through instinct or breeding, can correctly interpret and respond to signals given by a human handler.

There is much controversy about what is the most effective way to train a dog. Some dog trainers in London Ontario Canada, , are said to be 'positive trainers' as they mostly use positive reinforcement to elicit, motivate, and change behaviors.

An opposing camp comes from 'traditional' trainers, encourage the use of punishment, often physically painful punishment, in order to train dogs.

Similarly, there are dominance trainers, who believe all animals have an innate desire to dominate others, and that this dominating behavior needs to be punished.

In reality, many London Ontario Canada dog trainers use all quadrants of operant conditioning in their training, and so use both reinforcement and punishment throughout their training.

The difference is mostly in the scale, as positive trainers tend to employ more reward based principles first, while traditional and dominance trainers are more likely to punish unwanted behaviors first.

Most dogs live with people who want them to behave in ways that make them pleasant to be around, keep them safe, and provides for the safety of other humans and pets. Dogs do not figure out basic obedience on their own.

The fundamental rule that must be remembered is that one should never apply human standards of society onto the dog with the assumption that the dog will understand.

The hardest part of training is communicating with the dog in a humane way that the dog understands.

However, the underlying principle of all communication is simple: reward desired behavior while ignoring or correcting undesired behavior.

Basic pet obedience training usually consists of teaching animals to behave on cue. Common behaviors are:
sit, down, stay, recall ("come", "here" or "in"), close (or loose-leash walking), heel, up (standing up without jumping), toilet training.

Corrections are a form of punishment. Corrections can be physical (i.e. leash correction) or mental (i.e. withdrawing a reward).

The dog's personality, the behavior, and the importance of the correct behavior should all be taken into account in using corrections with your dog.

In a nutshell, negative corrections should only be used to eliminate a behavior and positive rewards to repeat a behavior.

Professional London Ontario Canada dog trainers train the dog's owner to train his or her dog. To be most effective, the owner must use and reinforce the techniques taught to the dog.

Owners and dogs who attend class together have an opportunity to learn more about each other and how to work together under a trainer's guidance.

Training is most effective if all those who handle the dog take part in the training to ensure consistent commands, methods, and enforcement. Classes also help socialize a dog to other people and dogs. Training classes are offered by many kennels, pet stores, and independent trainers in London Ontario Canada, .

Group classes may not be available until the puppy has completed all of its vaccinations (around 3 – 4 months of age). Some London Ontario Canada trainers offer puppy socialization classes in which puppies can enroll immediately after being placed in their permanent homes as long as disease risk is minimal and puppies have received initial vaccinations.

In most cases, basic training classes accept only puppies who are at least 3 to 6 months old. It's recommended to start training as soon as the puppy comes into your home. Puppies may also be trained individually by the trainer visiting the dog's home beginning as early as 8 weeks.

A puppy requires discipline, consistency, and the patience of its owner. The puppy training phase is integral in raising a healthy and happy dog and keeping a safe and fun home environment.

Dogs in London Ontario Canada are expressive and may communicate needs by biting, whining, and getting fidgety. Changing one's own conduct may be effective in changing a puppy's behavior.

House training is an important issue for puppies. Various methods of house training will work although the key is to be consistent. With regularly enforced rules, litter box, crate, or paper training can be successful.

My first contact with Bark Busters Dog Training in London Ontario Canada was as a client with a dominant Miniature Pinsher who barked and lunged at dogs a thousand times his size and a Bull Mastif who pulled me down the street for what I called drags instead of walks.  I would later learn both dogs also controlled my every action with Passive Dominant "requests" (a nice way of saying THEY dominated me by saying please or being cute!).

Within the first 3 hours of that initial in home training session I was absolutely amazed at the transformation in my dogs and more importantly MY understanding of them! This was the most humane thing I could ever have done for my pets! They were content again all along I thought they were just acting out, being bad or worse yet that they knew what they were doing and did those bad behaviours to spite me! After my visit with Bark Busters I learned that they did all those things simply because I was not being the leader of the pack which left them feeling unsafe and insecure.  They were simply trying to be the leader I wasn't. 

With the lifetime of support and some dedication on my part at following the new rules set out by my trainer (and practicing my daily homework routines) I quickly became the leader of my pack that my dogs needed to relax and settle down. This is what sold me on becoming a Bark Buster certified trainer. There is no magic powder or quick fix - Bark Busters simply helps you understand your dogs behaviour and teaches you how to change yours so you can become the leader your dog needs you to be - essentially the product is "freedom to live a happy life with your pet". I fully believed in the ?product? they had to offer having seen firsthand how it changed my relationship with my Golden Retreiver Vito. PLUS I had never heard of another company offering a guarantee of their training for the life of the dog! If someone offered you a better quality of life through a better understanding of your dog, wouldn't you want a piece of that action?  Alex,,Alexandre Messier is a graduate of Bark Busters Behavioral Training Program in London Ontario Canada , which is an intense behavioral modification, obedience and canine communication program.

Based on years of studying how dogs interact with each other and years of practical experience solving behaviour problems, Bark Busters founder Sylvia Wilson developed a proprietary technique called Motivational Communication Training (MCT) in Australia over 20 years ago. She identified two keys to effectively solve behaviour problems:
• Communicate with a dog in a language that the dog understands; and,
• Provide trustworthy leadership.

Used exclusively by Bark Busters, this technique uses praise as the positive reinforcement and primary motivator. The focus is on clear communication that is dog-friendly and easy to implement. Nothing motivates a dog like its' desire to please. By tapping into that innate desire, we are able to see results in as little as three hours. We know this may sound incredible, so please read some of what our past clients have to say about their experience under the case studies tab of this website.

Written Lifetime Guarantee:

We believe wholeheartedly in our methods which is why we back them up with a Written Lifetime Guarantee.

Natural London Ontario Canada Puppy & Dog Training that Works

Every day, family dogs are surrendered to animal shelters because pet owners are overwhelmed by dog behaviors they can't manage.  From struggles with basic leash training to more complex issues, such as destructive behaviors and aggression. After years of witnessing this heartbreaking process, former RSPCA manager Sylvia Wilson and her husband Danny created a dog training system focused on fostering a positive relationship between owner and dog to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect. This was the genesis of the world's largest dog training company, Bark Busters Home Dog Training.

Establishing Pack (or Social) Leadership

London Ontario Canada Dog behavior issues most often stem from a single problem: lack of consistent leadership. Dogs have an innate need for a pack leader, and in order to maintain a peaceful existence, their owner must confidently fulfill that role. They must also maintain a living environment that's conducive to positive pack interaction. It isn't difficult or elaborate, and typically requires a simple shift of mindset and consistent use of a few, simple techniques.

Dog-friendly Training Techniques

Bark Busters puppy & dog trainers specialize in adult dog and puppy training in your home. They assess your current household dynamics, how these influence your dog's behaviors, make necessary adjustments, and then teach you the communication techniques to lead your dog confidently and easily. Bark Busters' methods are effective with any dog – any breed, any age and any issue. Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists and trainers use natural, dog-friendly methods, through the use of voice tones and body
language geared toward putting the owner in control through effective leadership. These techniques are also ideal for families with hectic schedules who can't rearrange the flow of their lives to accommodate dog training.

Simple, Natural, and Fast

A simple shift in leadership, natural techniques, and consistency are all that's required to re-establish social order and strengthen the animal-human bond, and together with Bark Busters dog trainers, dog owners can transform their "problem dog" into a happy, obedient companion in as little as 2-3 hours.
Bark Busters has been selected by SPCA International as "Best of the Best" in companion dog training, and is proud to have led the successful training of more than 500,000 dogs, and their owners, worldwide.

Find a Dog Trainer in London Ontario Canada

Congratulations on coming to this site to get professional help in training your dog!

Only about 10 percent of London Ontario Canada dog owners/guardians care enough about their dogs to get help in training them. Many people either live (very unhappily) with a dog with problem behaviors, get rid of the dog, or euthanize their dog. It's so sad because many times fixing whatever is bothering them is very simple and easy.

Training your dog in London Ontario Canada , whether it’s a puppy or adult dog, is important because if he is trained, chances are much greater that he will stay in your house for his entire life because he is a pleasure to live with. Many, but not all, dogs that are surrendered to humane associations or shelters have behavior problems that no one wanted to deal with, and it was just easier to get rid of the dog rather than to train him. That’s a shame because training is really easy and enjoyable – and the results speak for themselves.

Training teaches your dog and/or puppy how you want him to behave, it increases the bond between the two of you, and it’s just plain fun. It doesn’t happen by sprinkling magic “training dust” over your dog. It involves spending time with him so you both are communicating on the same wavelength – canines and humans communicate differently, and a good trainer works with you as well as your dog by showing both of you how to understand each other. And many times, it's a lot easier than you imagine.

Here are some things to think about in London Ontario Canada :

Why do you want to train your dog?

prevent problem behavior from starting
eliminate an existing problem behavior
train for a specific dog sport or activity
make your dog easier to live with
train your dog to do what you want
all of the above
or something entirely different!!!

Who is the best London Ontario Canada trainer for your dog or puppy?

You are. You know more than you think you know. You are the one that spends the most time with him. You are the one that he has bonded with. Your dog has studied your every move and knows what you are going to do probably before you do it. Your dog in most situations tells you what he is going to do before he does it. Can you read those signs? How do you communicate with him so that he does what you want? That's where working with the right trainer is key.

In some instances, it may be to everyone's benefit to have a London Ontario Canada trainer train your dog. In that case, be sure that the trainer trains you as well. It's a bit embarrassing if your dog knows more than you do -- and he is trained and you aren't!!!

Why do London Ontario Canada puppies, pets & dogs act the way they do?

There are three influences on any dog’s behavior: genetics, the environment, and the owner/guardian. Trainers can’t do anything about genetics -- the natural instincts and temperament your dog was born with -- but they can influence the dog’s environment and you, the owner/guardian. In other words, they can change how you and your dog behave or act in a given situation.

The second area of influence is you as the owner/guardian. Training is proactive: you are taking the initiative and showing your dog how you want him to behave in a given situation. If all you are doing is punishing your dog for behaving a certain way, then you are being reactive to your dog. If punishment is effective, it should take only two or three times to work. If you are repeatedly punishing your dog for the same thing, then it's not working! You are only dealing with a symptom and not the actual reason for the behavior. Your goal is to change your dog’s behavior so he will act differently the next time he is faced with the same situation.

The third area is the environment. Sometimes, changing the environment is all that is needed to change your dog's behavior. A good trainer will explain to you how these factors impact your dog's behavior and training and know how to tailor his or her training to you and your dog.

How do I find a good London Ontario Canada trainer?

A good London Ontario Canada trainer should lead you down another path of thinking and give you a model of what to do and how to do it. It’s similar to the old saying that if you give a hungry man a fish, then you have given him his dinner. If you teach him how to fish, then you show him how never to be hungry again. If a trainer trains your dog and not you, then you may have a difficult time trying to get the same behavior from your dog as the trainer does.

So specifically, how can you find a good trainer? There are about a gazillion ways to train a dog to do the same behavior. There are about a gazillion different personalities of dogs and people. The solution is to find the right method with the right trainer for you and your dog. And again, you're in the right place.
