Dog training in Singapore

Wednesday 2/9/2015, had a training with a Cross Breed (German shepherd x ???)dog, owner claimed this dog is 10 months old and is NOT Aggressive but only “nipping problem”, no one has been bitten before and they took up the puppy interactive training. This dog was trained by an animal shelter house trainer before and got A for the obedience test!

On the day when arrive dog bark non stop at the gate try to hold the collar the dog growl! When I start introduce a bone the dog took it and became possessive and growl louder and show it's aggressive to refuse anyone from taking it! From then the owners started review this have dog are possessive to bone…. ! Worst thing is we CAN"T use our hand/ finger to point at the items or anytime around this dog! Now the bad behavior has been badly inherited without proper training and control.

During the training owners started to realised the difference of our training between their ex trainer. Since the dog was trained from a very young age at 4 months old (best time), their supposed to be taught on how to give the dog a good foundation rather then just pass the obedience test only on that very day!

What they learn is only basic commands but no behaviors teaching! (sit, down, stand, stay & heel)

Puppy below 4 months(depend on breed) their bite n their strength is not strong but once they grow older it will be from bad to worst? (For 8 to 10 months onwards puppies, it’ll started to have adult tooth) So if a right training was given and owners are aware of the problems it can still be control.    

Till today both the owner doesn't know the rules for Singapore dogs that Category A & B( Part 1 & 2) dogs must be on muzzle in the public! Worst is they are being trained by the AVA accredited trainer which is also sitting on the board! Why are this information was not told/ explained to them?

** For those who do not know whether your dog is one of the cross (mix) of Category A & B( Part 1 & 2) , kindly google "german shepherd mix" or german "shepherd mix puppies"  to see the image. (observed the muzzle and the color)

For the public info:

What worry me is, when this dog is in the public! If something trigger its’ instinct like kid go near when he is eating or playing with his favorite or some one bend down or point at something, what will happened???

 Dog training Singapore
Toby has been trained before at Bishan Park when he was little puppy, he doesn't walk and the trainer started
to drag him with the slip leash which was given free to the owner, Toby started to yell and scream!
Owner has stop the training immediately!
She was shock that I explained to her that it was Choke Collar that the trainer is using and for puppy below 6
months old they are not supposed to use that!
The more you pull the tighter it strangle the puppy!

 Dog training Singapore
Adopting from shelter house or purchase from pet shop?
As a dog lover, many first time owner, do not understand or have the slightest ideal on how to keep a dog! Some are due to love and wish to help, then they started to adopt a dog without knowing what to expect.

As all dogs and people are individual and difference. Some dogs are demanding, hyperactive and highly intelligent to manipulating the owner where else some are NOT! Some people are assertive, firm, patience and have time to spare but some are NOT! 

For pet shop selling is their main source of business (money)!
(If you keep looking at the CUTE puppies, it will temp you to buy it impulsively!)

As an animal shelter house, what is their objective???
(To help the animal or to re-home it quickly? Any admin fee charge??)

My advise, as dog lover who wants to help a dog, they must first test themselves to know and understand the following:
1) Can they spare a few days/ weeks volunteer to walk the dog / clean the kennel / bath the dog in the shelter house? (If yes ask yourself, can you handle/ accept the smell of the pee/poo?)

2) Have you discuss with your family, whether everyone agreed and accept to keep a dog in the house? ( If one of the family member rejected, then don't ever think of adopting one! Just be a volunteer, if not family will argue and quarrel because of a dog!)

3) The dog you wish to adopt from animal shelter house, can the shelter house let you have a trial to foster “ the dog you want ” for 1 to 2 week? ( By looking at the dog for a day or two, you can't tell whether this dog is suitable for you and your family! Having the actual dog you want for a trial will tell you whether it fit into your family!)

** Is very important for dog to fit into the family lifestyle or else some people instead of helping a dog they are making themselves more miserable and stress! End up return the dog or release it in the street!

Next Cody Video, Coming Soon!
8 months old Japanese Spitz being trained before but owner are not satisfy with it. After our first training, what owner comment in our training are "Very Informative & Helpful"!

Dogs Trainers & Training there are many type in the market, every individual teaching and handling are difference no matter how good and expert they claim they are, no one knows till you try both services.
** Kindly please don't compare others' training fee with our, unless they are doing exactly the same methods of service and syllabus as what we did.
Thank you!

Dog training in Singapore - Toilet (potty) training on Puppy/ Dog

Dog training in Singapore

Puppy/ Dog Toilet Training 

 http://www.dr-dogs.com/htrain/
 Hotline: 9842 9109 (10am to 10pm), No SMS or whatsapp enquires text please!
Dog potty training or Puppy toilet training was not taught when we started dogs training in Singapore. As all dogs training in Singapore is emphasis more on "Basic Obedience" mainly all trainers will only concentrate Obedience like dog heel(walk) beside without pulling, Stay according to the required timing for competition!

In the early years 2000 behaviors training and toilet training are not in the syllabus.Trainers are more focus on Obedience competition and are mainly using choker for training. When it comes to behavior(s) problem, dog owner are always brush off with a quick answer which is not relevant to the problem face. No surprise till today many of the trainers are still doing that as well, these people will copy whatever is in demand but end up  with excuses or mess up the dog training market. The person that loose up this the dog's owner that engage them for training!

** Sorry the word should not be "Copy", is "Stealing" ideal without the knowledge or experience in teaching the kind of syllabus!

In today market, these trainers will cut price(fee) and commit where ever they could in order to secure a deal! Those who are specialise in competition will said they are do behavior training! Some trainer(s) will get their trainee to train you and when thing goes wrong they can have an excuses to push the fault. That makes most dog's owner feels very skeptical on sending their dogs for training in Singapore!

Below Mr Aaron has engaged 2 trainers to train his POM! 
This owner are willing to give a third try on us although he had encounter such a bad experiences with these 2 trainers. Because of the cheap fee, he engage the first trainer  and the second trainer because of the popularity of the trainer and in the web it looks convicting!

 He comment most of the web he visited stated very briefly about their training but only emphasis more on what the achieved like competition, who they volunteer and the are member of certain society or how good they are!

These people spend 45 minutes talking about Cesar Millan training and for the last 15 minutes he was told to follow their setup for toilet training and "observe". Any problem call them or pay for another visit! How they teach the toilet training for outdoor is to plug a small leaves to ticker the dog's anal to stimulate it to poo!

** "Observe" is what we taught for our students for years when we first start toilet training, where others do not cover this syllabus. How to define "Observe", only our customers knew how and why! 
  
 What he wrote to us :


The above owner is happy with us, after the training :


Damien this owner had try the toilet training by themselves as the partner had kept dogs before and they have a few tips from friends that kept dogs, dog has form bad habit for months. Need to break it habit!
What our customer achieved, after the training:

Frankco rehome a 1.5 years old border collie and wish to train his dog for outdoor Pee and Poo!

What our customer achieved, after the training:

What our customer achieved, after the training:



Jason and Zann had kept dog before, try to toilet train her 6month old Shihtze.This dog had inherit some separation anxiety problem and dirty habit. Was recommend by ex-student of DR-DOGS.COM

What our customer achieved, after the training:



Gabriel, his dad Raymond engage us for the indoor toilet training for their new 2 months old puppy. He had another Shelti which was trained but not on toilet trained before.

At first they are very apprehensive on our training as our training goes on for half an hour, they realized our training is totally different from what they are taught by their ex-trainer!Instead of engage us for 1 day, Raymond needs me to come again once the puppy is stable down. Toilet training for them is very important as they don't want to end up like the Shelti, have to stay outdoor(garden).

** Before the puppy is back from pet shop, the owner had already book our service!

What our customer achieved, after the training:



Ms Lilian was recommend by Irene our ex-student to train her 2mth plus puppy. Result are shown with a day training for the toilet training. After a few days the dog was able to go back to the tray to pee and poo big area! Barking is lesser!

This owner kept 2 dogs before and she still take the full course with us and find it valuable for Money!




Joyce take up our puppy interactive training on 14/09/2014, at first she is very skeptical about whether is it true there is result on the first day as there is too.... many trainers out there to be trust!
She had the courage to take the challenge, on the day she was so surprised that her hyperactive pug tone down immediately after the practical training!
Next her 2 months + pug toilet training was able to be toilet train within a day!  

*** This owner has a Shihtze in her mother house never been train and she still take the full course with us and find it valuable for Money!
Now her brother plan to buy 2 Shihtze to be train!

video




Joyce brother has bought a new pug with problem!
Good news is her Pug(pudding is doing V well!

~ We don't waste your time by providing too... many days for toilet training ~

Puppy Interactive  & Handling  Course
has Proven to be value for money
by our customer!

Yesterday after our training, we were talking about another case (Joshua- staying behind her block) who engage a trainer before and comment that "his ex trainer did not know how to train at all"!

Joyce daughter Ellery a primary 6 student was asking, if the trainer don't know how to train what did he/she do in the training?

My comment to her is, look at your present school for example:

1) Some teachers knows but can't teach!

2) Some knows but don't teach or teach according to what is paid(salary)!                    (Due to under paid!) 

3) some just follow by the book to teach!  

4) Some just passing their time everyday to earn salary!                                             (whether they understand or knows is not important) 

5) Some are very responsible!    

** I remember Mr Aaron dog name Peanut in 2012! Before he engage us for training, he was confused by the web with full of trainers and all the dog trainers stated they are the best and good in providing all kinds of service (very convicting)! Again he had engaged two trainers before that mass up the training. 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------- 

17 /9/2014
Just finish a toilet training today at Teck Whye, which is behind Joyce dog Pudding home where we train the family on Sunday.

After half an hour of training owner started to disclose that they did engage a trainer to train them before, he claim "the trainer did not know how to train at all"! they have paid a lot and the trainer comes a number of days and he can't even explains and be able to rectify the problems and teach the wrong thing!

This owner (Joshua) has try the different and he know the differences!

Well, in dog training market now is like bubble tea, papa bread.. many people think it is easy money or market in demand without know anything just comes in and spoil the market!

These kind trainers know how to lure the dogs' owner and they know what you want by:
-:  cheaper price
-:  a package fee with commitment of many days of training
-:  empty promises

** Look if the trainer can't or don't know how to teach, are you wasting all your time and $$$

Good luck to you guys!

Although Joshua is willing to pay for the training But he has paid for the wrong dogs trainer, that doesn't know how to teach! Worst is the puppy had form a bad habit!

He only engage us to teach the toilet training for his dog with a cheaper fee, for this fee we don't cover behavior problem unlike the Puppy interactive Course or behaviour consultation training which Lilian & Joyce has gone thru.

** This is what most dog owners always ask for Cheaper Price with longer Service! Or they may think the longer the service the dog will be able to learn ( value their money)!

We don't quote our customer blindly what they pay is what they get to solve their problem!

PUPPY INTERACTIVE HOME TRAINING: Our customer has found it 
beneficial and value for money!

Toilet training result proven within a day!





08/10/2014
Another dogs owner that engage a dog trainer to train he puppy before engaging us to train his 8-9 months old Moca again!

This time was the owner's girl friend that call us to go down for the training. At first the owner Mr Lawrence was quite skeptical with the toilet training for his dog, after I had pointed out the mistake and giving the reasons why? He started to realized what was taught by his ex- dog trainer and what he do was wrong!

Again bad habits was inherited for months for what he was taught and done, these need time to solve!

**What he paid for his ex trainer was much more then what he pay now!

Difficult "Customer(s)" - CUSTOM Anti Bark Collar

Difficult "Customer(s)" - CUSTOM Anti Bark Collar
www.dr-dogs.com/custom

Yesterday a customer came to buy a anti bark collar with his gf. The person that call is his gf, upon picking up the product, has found this is a difficult person!

He has bought two anti bark collar for his 5 years old husky from one of the Pasir Ris pet farm where he was trained before. All the puppy was told to purchased an anti bark collar during that time of training and now the item he purchased has breakdown and this guy keep asking me whether I could service for him due to he had already sent the device for service and repaired before . We have rejected him as the brand and product is not from us. The item he bought was Sin$150/unit and by sending it for service repair the pet farm have to send back to factory and he have to pay the to and back frieght charges and the parts price and the item can't be fix.

To his annoy with the pet farm. He had ask some idiot questions as will it be painful or inhuman if the anti bark collar zap on his dog. What a contradict questions he has ask, in the first place he had been using only the zap anti bark collar on his Husky when it was puppy, for 5 years. Didn't he asked his trainer why all the students , are told to buy and use it during the training?

I try to teach him the base way(step by step) on how to use CUSTOM anti bark collar, he didn't seem to concentrate but just keep on telling me how bad service he encounter from the pet farm. Our CUSTOM anti bark collar has two function and is unlike what he has purchased only zap funtion!

Zap function has 3 types:
1) zap with certain voltage for few second "without warning" and the voltage can be adjusted according to the owner choice(e.g 15v/ 20v/ 25v/ 30v, so if you dog can take in 15v it will have keep increase the voltage till the dog are frighten and stop, in any incident if the device detect wrongly it will zap with the voltage you set again without warning!)


2)zap at different level of voltage till the dog stop "without warning" ( e.g. 15v/ 20v/ 25v/ 30v.. once the dog bark first zap 15v, don't stop 20v, don't stop again 25v and goes on till the dog are frighten and stop, in any incident if the device detect wrongly it will zap at the last level (voltage) when it bark(20v/25v/?? without warning!)

3) CUSTOM anti bark collar has two function, for zap it will give a "warning" to your dog first without zap! (what the dog learn "warn"!) the zap is (± 13V zap). For this device we will teach the owner step by step(start from basic) to change the dog's behavior!
In some case dogs wear without activate the device, the dog stop barking immediately!
Some with the Beep it will stop immediately!
For zap it will warn the dogs first without zap  again it has a auto reset function for 30 sec if the dog stop barking, it will reset to warning again! Safe for dog!

*** Updated on 20/5/2014 customer are happy with the device till now no complaint!

What this guy bought is 2) zap function but he don't even know how is works!
- I ask this guy that bought the two anti bark collar from the pet farm, is there any product training  when you purchased during the training? Answer is NO
- Do you know how is the function for the device he used earlier? Answer is NO he only assume how the function work but find out how!
* From the above it show, selling is easier without proper training! 
 
Once a dogs owner has been using the product for too long or taught with wrong concept of training. It is very difficult to get your words thru them!

Finally he has purchased it and till today more then 24 hours there is no complaint ;) !

 *** Updated on 23/5/2014, not complaint from this customer. He should be comfortable with the device!


Inconsiderate person that only think for themselves!
Today another customer who call and fix appointment to pickup in the morning but last minutes change the appointment to 10 pm!

By fixing an appointment we make ourselves free for  ± 1-2hours before the timing or sometime we have to rush back from another place ! Last minutes changes or cancel appointment is a inconsiderate person that only think for themselves!

By right today is Saturday we plan for an outing in the evening, so the appointment is fix at 9pm. Ok cancel all my plan. Again last minutes changes said can't make it! Ask whether I work at town side plan to pickup another day!

 *** Updated on 20/5/2014, this enquires did not call back!He may be our competitor / inconsiderate person!

Some people may complaint others for  bad services!  Again where and who can we complaint for these kind of people!

- Many of these people reserved a sit or table for a seminar or dinner at the restaurants, last minutes they don't turn up they don't care! 

- Some asked for delivery but don't want to pay for the transport!

- Product training for CUSTOM anti bark collar not Product training on your dog!

- There is some who need a solution urgently due to lawyer letter in/ HDB or AVA step in, these customers will immediately want answer. Worst is some call around 10-11pm and wanted pickup the device immediately! Please Note we are not 7 eleven 24 hours convenience store!

- One customer call and scold said can't buy battery for it anti bark collar, earlier already text them(couple) the place where to buy and how to use the device. At the end they are using the old phone can't received long sms text or whatsapp! Again break the message into 3 pages and text to them but they didn't even mention the words of thanks! Extreme rude! 

The following are bad "Customers" ( I don't think they are our customers as they have yet to pay for the service!)

** These people fix an appointment at 4.45pm. At 4.42pm sms said can't turn up and at the end didn't turn up at all! Who can we trust, wasting our time!



** This is the worst person fix a dog home training appointment at Jurong, when reach the home no one there! Already put carpark coupons and travel from East to West and is raining on that day! End up never take up the service. May god bless these people for what they did!




 ** The above was found in pets channel, this member had defamation and  infringe our trademark! This member is not a customer, he/she is selling the product and he/she condemn our services! 

卖假花说香 not 卖花说香!

***Pedipaws is DR-DOGS.COM registered approved trade mark by IPOS.
(This product has discontinue due to too much fake product that lead to bad reviews from the people who bought it.)

Recently another case at Pet channel!  One of the person give a remarks, he/she had use our anti bark collar and is faulty after 3 months. Note: Our product comes with 3 days 1 to 1 exchange and free local service repair after that.. Look an item is use on the dog(animal) and anything could had happen due to misuse or mishandling! Other similar products does not provide our type of after sale service or they will charge their customers for all the services.

I don't know where these people come from as they are coward  that hide behind of the computer using a fake namewhether this people is my competitor or jealous of what we do and they try to bad mouth our company!  We have record for every customers name, dog breed and phone number, just give us your details and we can tell whether these people are genuine people that give a bad remarks!

Again Pet channel is not a good forum web as I try to register and login to find out from these people on how I could help but was rejected! Hope the government will come out with a law that the person who mange the web forum must also be fully responsible for their member(s) that put a defame remarks in their web but not only the the person upload the remarks! 
 

Like I always said some humans are worst then dogs! Irresponsible, Selfish, Inconsiderate and Cunning !

On a 15th June 2015 about 10.30pm a very rude enquires called! The mum told your daughter to check around about training but when  I was talking to her daughter! I can heard her mum behind the background barking non stop with questions so I told her to pass to her mum to answer instead of on the speaker phone barking non stop!

This lady thinks she have some money and being frustrated talking to too many trainers before me that can't convince her. She ask me to compare me with our trainers! I told we are providing professional service not sell an item, if she want to know better about our training she can refer to our web or facebook, there videos and sms text about our training. I don't bad mouth others or do lip service to get her deal! She told her she got not time to surf web to see but she got money in order for her to come out with the money, I got to convince her!


Before comment product is faulty please check properly!
This inconsiderate guy complaint our products is faulty, ok we do a one to one within 2 days of purchase!
Keep harassing while I'm in training and request to meet at his convenience place for exchange. End up the product has no problem! Owner didn't inform me
