Training Philosophy

Building the Human Animal Bond is our Priority

At DogStars Training Academy, we are first and foremost dog lovers. In creating a training program, we implement positive ways to gain obedience and craft healthy and trusting relationships between owners and their pets. Therefore, our focus is on reward based training systems and positive reinforcement.

Understanding is Key

By creating a positive association between a command and a behaviour, pets learn to understand their owner’s desires clearly and to obey with enthusiasm. By the end of our programs, your dog will be better behaved, understand what you are asking of them, you have a better bond with them and they will also be more balanced and confident.

A Positive Approach

We are outgoing and friendly,our training sessions are infused with our positivity and enthusiasm towards our four legged clients and also our towards our two legged ones. We believe that training is fun and a great way of bonding with your pet, in addition to achieving your overall goals.

Our philosophy of building or repairing the human animal bond we use positive rewards. Using treats, praise and play with toys or dogs. Genuine enthusiasm is also the basis of all of our DogStars training programs, for pets, future animal stars, and of course, our future dog trainers.
