Pack Leaders

Dog Services

Pack Leaders not only provides generic puppy and dog training programmes and E.Book educational materials but also offers specifically developed strategies to address cases that require special attention in the developmental or rehabilitation processes. If your dogs have unique tendencies, fear not, we will find a way to deal with it. It is important to note that services offered to dog owners, for their dogs and puppies, will  require the daily attention of the owner, ensuring that ongoing exercises and discipline needed to develop or rehabilitate the desired or unwanted behaviours are accomplished. It is also vital to understand that a dog's behaviour can change in a heart beat depending on the behaviour of the "pack leader" - handler in charge at the time. So it is important for all pack leaders (family members) to understand the basics and follow through to achieve and maintain the desired results. Dog training encompasses instinctual communication, pack leadership and obedience work

Puppies for sale, should have their temperaments tested before being offered to a selected new puppy owner. Ask the breeder which pup suits your lifestyle best. Alternatively, Pack Leaders has guidelines to assist you with the tests, should you want to conduct them yourself. Remember temperament should be the first priority, then general health and finally conformation (the look).
