    The Dream Dogz training philosophy is designed to ensure your dog’s welfare and well-being at every stage.

    Behavioural problems can occur due to various, underlying issues (e.g. frustration, boredom, stress, medical reasons, unclear message etc).

    There are many occasions where behavioural issues (excessive barking, destructive behaviours etc.) can have a deeper, underlying cause for their occurrence rather than being considered just a training issue.

    Our first goal is to identify these reasons by:

    • Asking you to complete a Profile Form (provided after initial enquiry) for your dog. This will give us important information regarding your dog’s medical and behavioural history, his/her current living conditions, as well as the training, management and enrichment (e.g. physical exercise) strategies that you are using.
    • Ruling out any health reasons that might affect your dog’s behaviour. If not, a referral to a veterinarian and/or veterinary behaviourist is required.
