Building Positive Relationships

Did you know that by using kindness and positive methods to train a dog you encourage enthusiasm to learn. Using negative methods demotivates a dog and can damage the bond.

Just the same as kindness between humans. Making each other feel good builds confidence and encouragement, it's the same with dogs. We take our time to get to know every dog that visits us and make sure all dogs make friends for life.

Just as children do at school and colleagues do at work so your dog should at Doodley.

Running with the pack

Here at Doodley Dogs we place a strong emphasis on dogs as pack animals. It's nature's way.

Dogs are naturally sociable animals, and in the wild will usually form packs.

There are all sorts of negative connotations of 'packs of dogs' as dangerous and noisy, but they are in fact relatively calm and social structures.

It's healthy for your dog to interact with his own kind and it's important for every dog to have the opportunity to "speak dog" regularly.

Most doggy clients integrate nicely into our carefully organised packs, and play happily all day. You'll find that after a day with us your dog will have had so much fun that he'll be so tired out he won't even need to be walked.

Call us on 01903 741713 to find out more.

What happens at Doodley?

During the day your dog will be introduced carefully and patiently to a range of other dogs with the intention of ending up in the main arena where he will be sure to make lots of friends and get plenty of exercise. We take time to build up your dog’s confidence, making sure he feels comfortable at all times.

Not all dogs possess good social skills but all dogs do have the ability to learn how to socialise and interact appropriately. If your dog does not get along with other dogs, please speak to the behaviour team as with the proper training most dogs can overcome this problem. We feel it’s important for your dog to be able to socialise and communicate well with other dogs as a human can never provide the same companionship as another dog.

If there is a reason why you do not want your dog to socialise, we can still look after your dog and provide superior care. We will carefully select an appropriate dog for him or her to play with away from the main pack, or one of the team can keep your dog company during his visit.

Your dog will be able to play and socialise for the duration of his stay. We don’t confine ANY dog and ensure they all receive an appropriate amount of exercise.
