What we offer

Humane training methods are used in all our training. Choke chains (also referred to as check chains) are not used or suggested. Pinch collars and shock collars are not mentioned. Under no circumstances will pain or fear inducing methods be used. Tersia includes clicker training and TTouch® in all courses. If the clicker is not what you would prefer, you will be assisted differently. The main training method remains positive reinforcement.
Option 3

Juvies to Heal

Unfortunately, no puppy socialization course leaves you with a fully trained dog. Once you have completed Pups to Heal you will be wise to carry on with training as you will strengthen your early foundation. The obedience exercises learnt previously are built on and new ones introduced - keeping the fun element in view. Exercises such as a fun retrieve, recall, and more challenging situations are introduced. The emphasis remains on improving the bond between dog and person and spending quality time with your dog. In addition to this, the dogs keep in contact with other dogs and people - keeping on track with the view that dogs cannot meet enough new people in the first months of their lives.
