    Dog training can have a very real impact on your dog's - and therefore your - quality of life. Take Thor, for example who, sadly, was beaten during a house invasion when he was just three years old. Understandably, Thor was left with significant behavioural issues, including a fear of other humans and dogs. With Thor's behaviour showing no signs of improvement, his Mum, Crystal, sought help from Hanrob Dog Training Academy. "We wanted Thor to come back as the dog he used to be before the incident and he certainly has. His loving self is back!" Find out more about Thor's journey below, and enquire about dog training today, with 10% off our Stay and Train courses this November.



    Thor graduated from Hanrob Dog Training Academy

    Meet Thor - Cattle Cross Kelpie, Age 5

    Mum Crystal has been caring for Thor since he was 10 weeks old. Now, five, this Cattle Cross Kelpie is the cheekiest, most stubborn dog ever. Unfortunately, when he was three years old, Mum's house was broken into and Thor was badly beaten. Crystal sought help from Hanrob Dog Training Academy, and booked Thor in for Training For Life - during which he spent quality time, daily, with his trainer Helen.

    "When we first met Thor, he reminded me of a Canine Hannibal Lecter. Muzzled up, securely restrained on a tight lead and looking for a way that he could get free in order to be able to eat us," recalls Helen. "His family advised us that he had always been protective of Crystal, however after the home break in, that protectiveness increased to a level that was no longer manageable and became aggressive to not only people but dogs as well. Whilst his body had healed well, unfortunately his mind hadn’t."

    During his time at Hanrob, Helen worked to change Thor's emotional state. "Science tells us that while he was in that stressed, highly aroused state  his body would be flooded with stress hormones and no learning could occur. That was achieved by making his environment as small and predictable as possible. No pressure, regular visits to his pen." After a continual schedule of reinforcement, building on Thor's obedience, always with calm, confident and assertive handling, Helen slowly started introduing him to new people and then dogs. 

    "We were completely informed during Thor's stay with phone calls, photos and videos nearly every day," says Crystal. "Helen achieved so much in the time he was there, he has come home a completely different dog. He plays with Loki (miniature dachshund) and reacts better to people and other dogs. We wanted Thor to come back as the dog he used to be before the incident and he certainly has. His loving self is back."

    "We were given things to continue to do at home during the departure lesson, with a book to guide us through. Plus, having day refresher sessions available to us is a massive help."

    Not all dogs need this level of training and, at Hanrob Dog Training Academy, we will tailor our approach according to the outcomes required. Plus, with excellent on-site facilities and some of Australia's most experienced educators, we can - and will - make a real difference to your dog's quality of life.
