Together, Adrian and Caroline have had the advantage of learning about the canine world by working with, training and living with many different breeds for many years . They both believe that observing canine behaviour and watching how dogs engage with each other is the key to advancing the skill of learning dog behaviour.
"We must learn to communicate with them on their level and in their language, when we do this we gain the respect and the relationship that makes a dog content, balanced and respectful"
The majority of the problems the average pet dog owner has is simply down to a poor understanding of the leadership qualities or leadership language that is required to keep the dog under control. At K92000 we try to teach the handlers that come, how to communicate in a way their dog understands. We get best results when the owner is committed , willing to learn, and willing to be a leader. The experience of both Adrian and Caroline and the teaching methods they adopt is why K92000 is now being seen as one of the primary training venues in the UK for pet dog obedience, behaviour advice and dog training.
