Cooperative home and veterinary care

Would you like to brush your dog or clean their teeth? They won't even let the vet to treat them? Every manipulation always involves some kind of fight and cajole, and in the end you just hold your dog tight so you can both get it over with? It is better to explain to the dog that there is nothing to be afraid of and that they can be firmly in control of the situation. Then they will be willing to cooperate.

The lessons are taught by a vet or a veterinary nurse.

Our practice is divided into several lessons, which you can also visit individually. We offer two different levels of these lessons:

- beginners- dogs which have not the cooperative care just yet, they have never tried practice in a specific treatment and need to go through some basic techniques and exercises to help them cope with situations like this. To sign up here.

- advanced- ogs that handle the cooperative care quite well, various techniques and exercises already have a somehow acquired and want to continue with the practical training and potentially also they can build a relationship with a particular vet. To sign up here.

Emotion recognition

At Hodný pes, we are offering you new non-traditional courses that are aimed at developing your dog's cognitive abilities. Using modern ethical training methods, we will teach you the match-to-sample method. This helps to develop memory, attention and also the ability to distinguish between objects. Your dogs will learn not only to recognize different objects, but also to use abstract thinking and to recognize categories such as shapes and colours.

Those interested will have the opportunity to participate in the scientific project Perception of Affective Signals in Interspecies Communication led by Mgr. Markéta Lukavska and PhDr. RNDr.Tereza Nekovářová, PhD, which deals with how dogs and primates perceive and distinguish human emotions.

That's why every summer we bring a program full of intensive lessons that help you train the most important things - leash work, recalling and cooperation. You only have to sign up for concrete dates, which you can find directly in your applications.

New Year’s Eve with a pet

New Year's Eve is for some of us a pleasant end-of-year celebration that we spend with our friends or family (two-legged and four-legged). For some of us is a harrowing period our pets fear. Animals have acquired a highly adaptive ability to respond to sounds by nature. However, this advantage is lost when they live in human proximity. Would you like to know more about this phenomenon and get a better sense of how your pet feels? Would you like to get information about how to get through this period together in peace and quiet? Come to Hodný pes.

The seminar lasts 120 minutes, it runs without dogs in our classroom.
