We try our best to place the frequently asked questions here to help others like you that might have some questions to have them answered without the need of contacting us.
Q: Will my dog not feel lonely or abandoned when in the kennel?
A: With the start of a program, all doggies feel a bit insecure and new, but this usually only lasts a day or so, we are also spending extra time with doggies that struggle to adapt, we even bring them into our own residence for some extra comfort if needed. But this process also teaches your fur friends to become more independent and social. In addition, most of their time in kennels is at night, as we learn and play most of the days.
Q: Will my dog not feel cold in the kennel, he is not used to sleeping outside?
A: Each kennel has a roof with a comfy bed helping them stay warm in winter and then we have a mist cooling system in summer for those hot unbearable days. Camera’s fitted with a live view in their private residence and soft music playing in the background what more can a doggy ask for.
Q: My dog is aggressive, will you be able to transport or handle my dog in the kennel?
A: No dog is a problem to us, we believe that each doggy needs a chance to a better life and we will stop at nothing to give exactly that to the dog. We have the equipment and the skills to deal with aggressive dogs and any other kind of behavior, we have seen it all.
Q: Will my dog listen to me if he/she is used to your commands etc at your premises?
A: Yes, inboard training services are running since the early 1900's and was at a time primarily used for dog training, we see HUGE success with doggies we take back home and as can be seen in the testimonials our current owners agree :)
Q: Will I be able to visit my dog during the 2 weeks?
A: Yes, owners are more than welcome to visit or even video call in instances where visits are not possibly. We also keep you informed on a daily basis on the progress etc.
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are based in Pretoria, on a farm close to the famous dam Hartbeespoort dam, BUT we do service the entire Gauteng and surrounding areas, we do the collections and drop offs every 2 weeks on a Saturday and or Sunday.
Q: What is the requirements for my dog to be enrolled for the program?
A: The ONLY strict requirement is that puppies should have at least their 2nd 5in1 vaccination 2 weeks before the commencement date of the program. The health of your fur child is VERY important to us and it is therefore that we do not negotiate on this topic.
Q: I smack my dog if he does not listen, will I be judged?
A: At PAWSITIVE DOG TRAINING COLLEGE no one will EVER be judged, it is of UTMOST importance when enrolling your dog, that we get informed of the dog’s entire background and that includes even a smack, we do not believe in smacking and hurting animals but the fact that you are asking for assistance is already enough proof that you care for your dog and that you want to better yourself and the methods you are using to control your dog. As part of the behavior modification process we need to know about everything the dog undergoes on a daily basis in order to make a real difference, we need the truth even if the truth is not always kind.
