    More About The Program

    “This class was intentionally designed to build an in-depth proficiency in conventional and novel situations, for example being around other people and dogs. It is positioned to represent our eccentric focus to guide dogs and dog parents towards achievable objectives. At every checkpoint along their journeys, the mutual magical bonding towards a relationship centred on trust and love is occurring.”

    Made for Thinking Dogs

    Thinking Canine is a Trademarked Pawrus® Dog Training Academy Curriculum.

    In this dog training programme, you will learn to develop your adolescent dog’s basic skills further into valuable skills for real-life usage.

    Your dog will learn useful intermediate life skills such as regulating their emotional mind to develop strong stimulus control. We will also stretch the plasticity of their canine mind to increase cue response by continuously exposing them to a series of challenging scenarios in indoor and outdoor environments with positive consequences.

    Puppies can bring along a maximum of two human family members. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult to provide safe supervision for puppies and children both.


    What Will You Learn?

    • Shaping your dog to perform a wave – high five – paw shake
    • Super steady stay on mat with distractions (e.g. exciting stuff, other dogs and people.)
    • Rocket recall (on-pilot leash & off-leash) with distractions
    • Cueing your dog to walk politely on leash for long distances
    • Greeting strangers and other dogs properly
    • Pushing a ball through a goal using nose-targeting
    • Before every session, please prepare a reasonable amount of high-quality, semi-moist, bite-sized food reinforcers (commercial treats are acceptable) that you know your dog will love.
    • A variety of food reinforcers (i.e. ≥3) is recommended.
    • Suggested size for each food reinforcer is 0.5cm by 0.5cm.
    • These food reinforcers will be used to teach your dog new behaviours.
    • To prevent food-related allergies, by default, our team will not be using our own food reinforcers.
    • In the event that you allow us to use our food reinforcers, you hereby agree that our team will not be held responsible for any food-related allergies.
