At Ohana Dogtraining we collaborate and do workshops with companies, associations to help or support a cause.

Canine communication workshop

Knowing what our dogs are telling us is essential to have a good coexistence with them, this is what we call canine communication, it is a repertoire of non-verbal language with which dogs communicate and tell us how they
feel or what is what they need.

Duration: 2 hours

Face-to-face modality

Nose work workshop

The smell of dogs is immensely superior to ours, they know the world through their nose, the smells they pick up and a large part of their life is spent sniffing. When a dog stops sniffing, behavior problems such as stress,
anxiety, or aggressiveness can arise. In this workshop we will learn how good it is that our dog sniffed and fun exercises to do with him in a calm but didactic way.

Duration: 2 hours

Face-to-face modality

Duration: 2 hours

Workshop on not pulling on the leash

In this workshop there will be a small theoretical part about why dogs pull on the leash, possible injuries if this behavior occurs for a long time and the best material for the dog. Then, the remaining time, different exercises
will be worked to know what to do and when to do it, so that our dog stops pulling.

Duration: 2 hours

Reactivity in dogs

A reactive dog is what was previously called aggressive. It is a dog that barks or tries to bite

other dogs or people for no apparent reason. The problem can appear for many reasons,

from poor socialization at an early age, a bad experience, having learned it from another

dog, or simply being an insecure dog and not being guided correctly. These dogs are not

bad dogs, they are simply afraid, and the only way they have to deal with that fear is by

barking. This problem is not solved with traditional training, it is like putting a patch on the

problem and it only makes it worse. What we need to do is reduce the stress that the dog

may have, since any animal with a high-stress level is not able to learn and change. The first

step is to teach the dog that what it is afraid of is not actually dangerous. Next, the handler

needs relearn how to communicate with the dog, what to do in certain situations, and what

situations are better to avoid at the moment. It is important to be as calm as possible since

everything we feel is going to be transmitted to the dog. The keys to training with a reactive

dog and seeing results are patience, respect, and empathy.
