Lifestyle Means ‘Real Life’ Training

Jean Claude Bertoni at K-9iQ pioneered lifestyle dog training which basically means that your dog isn’t a robot focused on competition obedience, but rather is able to deal with ‘real life’ situations that you will encounter, such as:

  • Being able to take your dog to a busy cafe and know for certain it will stay and ignore all that is around it,
  • Being able to take your dog anywhere that you go such as the beach, parks, camping, on public transport etc knowing it will behave unconditionally,
  • Being sure that your dog will not obey strangers,
  • Being sure that your dog will not take food from strangers.

“Claude’s training methodology is backed up by scientific facts, it’s down to basics and the training is clear, consistent and simple for people to do.”

It is that Simple

Good dog training should not only produce lasting results, it should also be fun for you and your dog.

Our training is based on the LIMA principle (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) which means that learning is enjoyable for your dog and importantly, sensible for you.

It really is easy when you know how.

“You have an amazing ability to get anything across in a fun, entertaining, lighthearted, caring manner. I love that even when we are training seriously there is always lots of fun and laughter.”
