Dannegger-Training Indoor Dog School is open again
and sharing a space with Fit2Run Dog Physiotherapy
Dannegger-Training is now sharing space with Yvonne Bennett from Fit2Run Hundephysiotherapie https://www.fit2run.ch/ on Göschenenstrasse 13 in Basel (near Neubad).
I am able to use the room and equipment on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays
Due to Covid Restrictions, I am not currently able to offer group lessons.
1) lessons are usually done at my indoor school, out on training walks or at the client's home (see point 2 below)
2) I do not drive, so my range is currently limited to clients close to public transportation in the immediate bordering towns around Allschwil. I live in Allschwil, so usually lessons in Basel, Bottmingen, Binningen are no problem. I may have to add travel time on lessons in Oberwil, Therwil, Reinach or further out. I charge CHF 1 per minute beyond 30 minutes (bus schedule times).
In-home lessons will usually be scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays.
About the Training:
For me, dog training is PEOPLE TRAINING... If you and your family learn how to work with and communicate with your dog,
you will be able to get the behaviors you are looking for.
My aim is to help dog owners become "dog trainers" because working with your dog is a non-stop, lifelong process.
Several factors can contribute to a lesson without a lot of “puppy/dog participation”:
· Often puppy’s bio-rhythms do not match the training schedules: Puppies are either ON or OFF and the younger the pup, the faster they “run out of gas.”
Solution: Try to schedule lessons when you know your pup is lively.
Pain or malaise from recent
vaccinations or other causes.
Solution: Do not schedule lessons within 2-3 days of recent vaccines or if the pup is unwell or on medication.
Puppy is exhausted from too
much attention/activity before the lesson.
Solution: Do not walk or play with the puppy in the half-day before the lesson.
Puppy is not hungry.
Solution: Do not feed the puppy in the half-day before the lesson or only VERY little.
Lots of people-distractions
during the session.
Solution: Ask family members to write down questions / issues in advance.
Kids are welcome and encouraged to be present during the lesson,
but this can often lead to lesson-plan deviations and overtime.
The enormous amount of information that most new dog/puppy owners need to learn and practice takes time to impart.
We can do that even if the puppy is
passed out cold.
I charge for my time training PEOPLE.
This “training” is every bit as important as anything we do together with the dog and I charge for that time.
How much does it cost?
In-person sessions usually last between 60-70 minutes for this I charge CHF 100 / per session cash on the day of the lesson
(or CHF 90 per session if you pay for 5 or more in advance).
