Behavioural and Obedience Training for Dogs and Puppies. Real-world results without relying on food treats.
Best Mate Dog Training teaches novel, food-free methods that allow your puppy or dog to truly become your best mate, reliable and trustworthy in distracting situations. With our training methods you can take them more places and involve them more often in family life. We come to you for convenient one-on-one training in your home, or wherever you are having issues. The sessions can also be used to build a solid training foundation, helping to prevent problems before they occur.
Convenient – we are open weekends, and we come to you, so no travel required.
Realistic – Practical methods, which are effective in the real world and work in the situations you and your dog are in every day.
One-on-one – Training to suit your specific problems, and the benefit of the trainer’s full attention.
We deal with a range of issues, including:
“Selective hearing” of obedience commands
Jumping up, barging, stealing & chewing
Pulling on the lead
Mouthing, nipping & biting
Over-excitability and unhealthy obsessions
Chasing other animals (e.g. chickens, sheep, cats)
Food aggression and resource guarding
Not all training methods are equally effective. If you’ve tried other methods before with limited or no success, we may be able to help. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation about how we can help you and your best mate.
We are based in Rolleston, and service the surrounding areas in Selwyn and Christchurch
