The Ethos behind Dog Training in Worthing at Unleashed

Our dog training in Worthing is based around positive reinforcement

With lots of conflicting advice online, it can be hard to know which way to go when it comes to getting your dog to co-operate. Whether you’re training a puppy, getting an older dog out of bad habits, or keen to get your four-legged friend leaping into agility, we run classes for dog training in Worthing that work towards these goals so that you can get the best from your dog.

Nina, our ISAP registered dog trainer from Black and White Dog Training, firmly believes in positive reinforcement based training. She finds that by using treats, praise and toys, dogs respond and repeat what they’ve learned more readily – which is all you can hope for when training! With 12 years experience, plenty of qualifications under her belt and a knack for putting both dogs and their owners at ease, Nina is a qualified canine behaviour counsellor, so she’s seen pretty much everything when it comes to doggy foibles. 

Nina runs several classes for dog training in Worthing at Unleashed – read more about them, and find out prices and dates here. Dogs of all ages and stages are welcome – just pick the right class for you.

How our Groomers in Worthing Caters for Nervous Dogs

Our groomers in Worthing is suited to nervous dogs – here’s why…

groomers in WorthingThe buzz of the clippers, the unfamiliar environment, the strangers that work there; the whole process of going to the groomers, particularly for the first time, can be scary for your dog. Our groomers in Worthing always aim to leave dogs feeling relaxed when they trot away with their new ‘dos, so it’s a priority to make sure a visit to us is a calm experience.

We do this by dedicating time to a nervous dog when it comes to getting them acquainted with the grooming room. We offer two hours of free play, where they’ll have access to the salon,  and have treats, games and cuddles aplenty before their groom. The next time they visit us, they’ll associate the environment with fun and food, enabling them to feel happy and relaxed whilst our team work their magic.

With time and space allowed for your dog, it is possible for them to overcome their fear of the groomers, making it a pleasant experience for both you and your pet. Contact us to chat about how we can improve your dog’s feelings towards grooming.

Unleashed Dog Daycare in Worthing Sponsors Mutts Dog Show

Unleashed dog daycare in Worthing is sponsoring Mutts Dog Show

Spring is only just springing but we’re already looking forward to later in the year – because our dog daycare in Worthing is sponsoring Mutts Dog Show! Organised in support of local animal rescue charity Wadars, Mutts is taking place on 16th September on the Rotary Grounds in Worthing, and is going to be four hours of doggy fun and frolics!

Wadars has been caring for sick, neglected and injured animals for nearly 50 years, as well as rehoming companion animals too. Last year Wadars ‘rescued more than 1700 injured, orphaned and at risk birds and wildlife, and rehomed over 400 cats, dogs and other companion animals.’ As animal lovers, we don’t know where our local wildlife community would be without the help of Wadars, and it’s heartwarming to know that so many dogs and cats find their forever homes through this wonderful organisation.

In true dog show style, there will be classes to suit all canines, including best rescue, waggiest tail, best in show, and a best junior handler class, for those budding animal handlers! There will also be a range of stalls, refreshments and activities going on – it’s set to be a fantastic day out for the whole family (including the canine members)!

Unleashed is proud to be supporting this fun event in Worthing, especially as it raises money for an organisation that work tirelessly for the welfare of countless animals across our county. We’d love to see you there, so pop the date in your diaries, and bring your four legged friend!
