Can you believe it’s been one whole year since I started Premier Dog Training in Romford? Some would say that starting a business is a brave thing to do in the current economic climate but I’ve always been one to rise to a challenge. Which is probably why I enjoy dog training so much.
Life before Premier Dog Training
Dogs have always been a passion of mine. As a boy, I begged my parents for a dog for what seemed like years. Patience and persistence paid off and I eventually became the proud owner of an 8 week old Standard Schnauzer named “Arnie”. Short for Arnie Schnauzernegger.
Arnie taught me a lot about the responsibilities of dog owning. He was my mate AND my mentor. I trained him myself. It wasn’t an easy task for a beginner because Schnauzers can be stubborn. However, Arnie and I had this mutual respect and we quickly learned how important it is to keep training sessions interesting, and to be clear and consistent with commands and, of course, generous with rewards.
Believe it or not, I also learned how to groom Arnie and I cared for his coat for the whole of his life. Schnauzer coats grow fast and need regular attention to keep them neat, tidy and comfortable. Caring for Arnie in that way helped build and cement our friendship.
