What Can Pet Centrics Do For You?
Dog Training Classes
Pet Centrics dog training classes help you train your family dog to be an obedient and well-mannered every day companion. Puppy- and young dog owners, in particular, get much needed help to understand and gain control of their exuberant pets.
Owners that are looking for help trying to address specific behavior issues in their dog can schedule appointments for dog evaluations and behavior consultations. Following the evaluation and consultation, owners receive a detailed report and proposed training solutions for dealing with their problem with their dog.
Home Veterinary Services
HOUSE CALLS BY APPOINTMENT are available to residential areas near/along Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City including Filinvest I and II, Northview I and II, Serra Monte, Spring Valley, Spring Heights and other nearby subdivisions. Please note emergency veterinary services are currently NOT available. In cases of veterinary emergencies, you may wish to contact one of the Quezon City vet clinics listed HERE.
Pet Centrics Trainining Philosophy:
Training should be an enjoyable experience for both dogs and owners. And to be able to have clear communication with your dog, it’s important for the human to understand how a dog thinks and learns. I teach dog owners that dogs can be trained to perform the behaviors that we want without force or coercion. The dogs learn to have fun during their training sessions with their humans!
The use of harsh punishment is not recommended as this may result in the development of a dog’s fear and distrust of the owner, which may later on progress to escalating levels of aggression.
I prefer to use shaping and luring, and other forms of reward-based training to get the dog to do what we want. Punishment, if at all used, is kept at a minimum and is only given in the form of verbal reprimands and withholding of things that the dog finds valuable.
