Thank you for visiting our website.
As of the 22nd of January 2024, I am now on maternity leave. No messages will be replied to during this time and no training will be taking place. I am aiming to be back to work towards the middle of 2024 so please keep an eye out on our social media pages & website for updates!
PAWSOME PUPZ DOG TRAINING
Anything is Pawsible
Pawsome Pupz is a friendly and knowledgeable dog training and behaviour company which was set up in 2016. We offer everything from classes and workshops, to 1-2-1 training and behaviour consultations. We can provide our services both in person and online. Our focus is to create a strong relationship between owners and their dogs. We do this by using modern, innovative and effective training techniques that work and are backed up by evidence-based science. We use motivational techniques which include the use of markers, toys and food to train your dog. Training which includes fear or pain are not considered by our trainers and will not be used in any of our classes. Our classes are based in East Sussex but due to our online solutions we can work with you wherever you are in the world. With our online training you can train at any time, however our team are available to contact personally Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm UK time. If you are interested in finding out more about what we can offer please visit our Classes, 1-2-1 Training and 1-2-1 Behaviour Consutations pages on our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Do you have questions? Not sure if you need training or behaviour sessions? Do you want to talk to someone before booking?
Then book in a FREE discovery call with us and we can have a chat.
We know choosing the right dog trainer is a big deal! You want to know you and your dog are in good hands and want to meet the trainer before you commit - and we get it!
We want you to feel comfortable in your decision to work with Pawsome Pupz Dog Training!
You can choose between a 20-minute phone call or a 20-minute Zoom session if you’d like to talk face to face.
We’ll discuss your dog and your goals, review the options, and answer any questions you may have.
There is no pressure to book!
No one likes high-pressure sales tactics, including us. We’re not interested in selling you anything, just helping you find the best option for your dog. In fact, we don’t schedule anything during these Discovery Calls, so there’s no pressure to buy anything.
Think of this as an opportunity for us to talk and get to know each other.
How it works:
Simply schedule online. If none of the times work, contact us and we’ll figure out a good time.
Select the time that works best for you.
You’ll fill in your info and tell us a bit about your dog.
Decide whether you want a Zoom meeting or a phone call.
On the day of your call, you’ll receive a Zoom link (if you chose Zoom) or you’ll simply receive a phone call at your scheduled time.
You’ll get 20 minutes with our trainer to ask questions and figure out the best training plan for you and your pup!
DID YOU KNOW...
Play is an incredibly important part of your dogs physical and mental wellbeing, whether that be playing with their humans or their canine or feline companions. There have been studies that show a lack of play can have a correlation with some behavioural issues such as anxiety or pulling on the lead and whining (of course there may be other reasons for these behavioural issues to). Play needs to be appropriate and the dog needs to feel comfortable at all times. So take some time out of your day to play with your dog, they will love you for it!
THE DOG'S NOSE
Scent is your dogs super power! A dog has around 220 million receptor cells in it's nose compared to the measly 5 million us humans have. There has even been research to suggest that a dog can sense our mood by the scent of the chemosignals we are giving off at that particular moment in time! This could explain why your dog always comes and rests his head on your lap when you're sad or why they get excited when you're happy. The next time your feeling stressed or sad take note of how your dog is behaving, they might just surprise you!
DO DOGS SWEAT....?
The short answer is yes! However they don't sweat like their human companions, they only sweat through their paws. Unlike us humans it is not their primary cooling system, they prefer to pant. As a general rule a healthy dog will inhale around 15-40 times a minute, as the dogs heart rate rises, its respiratory rate also rises to anything up to 400 inhalations a minute! As the cooler air from the outside passes over the tongue it causes the moisture and saliva to evaporate, cooling down the tongue and circulating these cooler molecules throughout the body, therefore cooling the body from the inside out, pretty cool eh? With the summer very much on its way, heat stroke is an important consideration to make when exercising your dog. Some good ways to avoid this is to walk your dog at the cooler times of the day (early morning/late evening), ensure fresh water is always available and you could even make dog friendly ice pops for them to munch on during the hottest part of the day!
