Courses

Ken Je Hond offers a number of different courses. Below you will find information about the content of each course. The courses focus not only on basic training such as sit, down and stay, but also on behavioral techniques. We work with a clicker word during the training to ensure that the timing is always right and you are always rewarding for the right attention. This helps the dogs learn the exercises quickly and easily. We only use training techniques that are animal friendly, easy to learn and stress free for the dogs.

The courses can be scheduled during the week, both during the day and in the evening, so you can request a course that fits your schedule. Everything is planned in advance and takes place in the comfort of your own home and the surrounding area’s.

Adoptive Dog Training

Adopting a dog from a shelter in the Netherlands or abroad is a lovely gesture. Many dogs still roam the streets, are malnourished, have no shelter and have had little social contact. Some dogs are abandoned because their owners are no longer able to care for them, others are simply born on the street. Either way, they are special dogs with their own backpack of emotions and behavior.

Their backpack sometimes contains a number of things that you as a new owner have to be very patient with. That is why we offer the adoptive dog course. In the adoption dog course the dogs receive the basic commands and behavior training that we also offer in the puppy group. In between, however, we mainly work on building self-confidence in the dog and building a bond of trust between dog and handler. We do this with a lot of love and patience while striving keep the training as stress-fee as possible.

The course consists of 6 lessons. Each lesson lasts approximately 45 minutes and takes place each week for 6 weeks.

Personalized Training

Sometimes your dog may just need a little more one-on-one attention and a training specifically tailored to its needs. For example, think of a dog that pulls a lot on the leash, is a bit afraid of certain situations or barks a lot at other dogs. Or maybe you are just a first time dog owner who needs some extra attention. That is why we offer personlazied training.

During the training you will receive a lot of information about your puppy or dog. Because the training is one on one, we can inform you in more detail about how your dog thinks, what needs your dog has, day to day life with your dog and communicating with your dog. This training is ideal for first time dog owners struggling to manage or for people who own a dog showing unwanted behaviour.

The course duration of the course depends on the dogs behaviour and what you need help with concerning your dog. We also take into account the abilities and the capacity of the dog and its owner. A plan of action will then be made and discussed with you before the course starts.

Are you a struggling first time dog owner? Or do you have a dog that just needs a little more attention concerning small behavioral problems? Then this might be the training for you. For information on prices you can go here and to register click on this link.
