Welcome to Khanright Dog Training
Dogs learn through repetition and reward, where correct behaviours are positively reinforced. Many behavioural problems are caused either by lack of training or by owners inadvertently rewarding dogs for the wrong behaviour. This in turn leads to the animal becoming confused or frustrated. A frustrated dog can become destructive, anxious, fearful and stressed.
At Khanright Dog Training we can address unwanted behaviours that have become ingrained in the dog.
A dog has the ability to learn hundreds of words and cues but first it has to learn the action. At Khanright we use a clicker to help the dog understand exactly which action is correct and to know that a reward will be forthcoming for that action.
We can say categorically that it is great fun watching a dog learn to do things for the “click” because without the click the food won’t come. The clicker is consistent and the dog knows precisely what it has done right to get its reward. We often hear the cry “we had a clicker and it didn’t work!” Usually this is because the clicker is being used incorrectly as an “attention getter” when really it is a behaviour marker.
We spend some time with beginners to explain the science behind the clicker and show how easy it is for your dog to learn with this method. Some of the most complex exercises can be trained by use of the clicker, including freestyle dance moves and agility. On the other side of the coin, behavioural problems can be corrected using the same techniques.
All breeds are welcome at Khanright Dog Training. We have dogs ranging from Bloodhounds to Cavalier King Charles. Our classes are held mostly in Minnis Bay (East Kent) with occasional events elsewhere in the Thanet/Canterbury/Sandwich area.
We hope you enjoy looking through our website to find out more about us.

"Boris is a changed dog, we are both happier, he is attentive and eager to learn. When I get out his training lead on a Saturday (it's not a special lead just a clean one!) he jumps around and gets all excited.
It is great to see him happy again
Thank you sooo much Jan & Karen!"
