What is Natural Dog training?

Natural Dog Training is a kind, non confrontational method which will transform the way you relate to your dog. It will empower you to take control of the way you live with them. You will achieve a closer more trusting relationship. Unlike traditional obedience methods, it is a natural way of communicating based on learning’s from the wolf pack, the ancestors of all domestic dogs. It creates an environment where your dog will want to work with you of its own free will. It is simple, effective and involves no pain, no force, no shouting, no violence and no expensive gadgets and most importantly IT REALLY WORKS!

Over time, we have lost the natural ability to communicate with our dogs. Most domestic dogs see themselves as the pack leader. This is because humans have lost the connection with nature and how to be convincing as leaders in the eyes of the dog.

For the dog, this leadership role comes with responsibility, and with responsibility comes stress. Dogs do not understand our language and this leads to confusion which can cause behavioural problems. Dog Listening uses a language that your dog will understand and it will help them to find their place in the pack, whilst electing you as pack leader. This in turn will solve many behavioural problems and giving your dog a happier, stress-free life that they deserve.

Jan Fennell pioneered this method of training and spent 15 years learning and discovering how dogs and wolves interact and communicate to maintain pack hierarchy. She then developed this method from her learnings.

Once you start using this method you will wonder how you ever lived without it.
