Also  all dogs that are to attend dog daycare must receive the Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccination before attending daycare.

Please understand that if your dog is vaccinated for Bordatella (kennel cough) there is still a chance your dog may contract this condition from sources outside of Dogs and Divas. You shall not hold Dogs and Divas responsible in any way should such infection or similar be contracted by  your dog.

Dog training Free.

The first rule of  dog training should be fun for you and your dog if either of you aren’t enjoying it leave it for a bit and try again later. 

Tip: if you have a timid dog try training when they are relaxed and comfortable and use high value treats.

If you have a hectic dog try training after their dinner so they are not hungry and dont use high value treats.

Lets start with the basics.
Clicker training is a method that uses a unique sound, a click, to tell a dog that he has done something right. Because the click sound is hard to replicate in daily life it is a distinct sound that can be used to mark any action or behavior a dog does. The sound is made using a 'clicker'. A clicker is a small hand-held device that gives a 'click' sound when pressed. Clickers have been used to train marine and other animals for many years and have now become very popular in positive dog training.

How Does Clicker Training Work?
To begin with a dog is taught that the sound of the click means he will get a tasty reward. When he does what is asked, such as sits or lies down, the clicker is pressed and the click sound is immediately followed by a reward. This gives a dog instant feedback and reinforces the particular action, choice or behavior he has just done. The dog soon associates the sound with something good and responds quickly again in anticipation of receiving a similar reward.

The clicker device is usually hand held which makes it difficult for some people to use. However if the clicker is put on a finger or worn attached to a ‘bracelet’ around the wrist, it can be easier to access while leaving hands free to hold a leash. Some people prefer to use a simple word such as “good” or “yes” as a verbal marker instead of a clicker while others like to use a verbal marker while pressing the clicker so that both markers become the reward. This can make the transition from using the clicker to just a verbal cue, easier.

How to 'Charge’ the Clicker:
Start with a handful of really delicious (high value) treats cut into small pieces.
Every time you click, give your dog a treat. Do not click and treat at the same time; the treat must follow the click. You can also throw the treat onto the ground and click just before your dog eats it.
Repeat the process while you are standing up, sitting down, or moving about and in all different kinds of environments, so your dog understands that no matter where he hears the click, he has done something right and will receive a tasty reward.
Repeat this exercise a few times a day for a few minutes at a time until, when you click, you notice that your dog is eagerly anticipating the treat. 

 *Step 1

When your dog isn’t looking call his name When he makes eye contact with you Press the clicker and give him a treat straight away. Do this several times throughout the day for several days also do this in different scenarios for example at home in the garden out on a walk. This will reinforce gaining your dogs attention when you need to and is the basis of everything. 
Top tip, remember timing is imperative! And always remember to ‘have fun’

Top Tip: You will need a good quality dog crate a good quality dog bed and a good quality Kong.

Crate training helps with toilet training and gives your dog a safe spot of their own. It also lets you keep an eye on an energetic pup to make sure they don’t go roaming around doing things like wires or shoes. 


*Step 1 get your dog comfortable with the crate. 

Sit in front of an open crate with your dog next to you.

Encourage him to go into the crate by himself making a trail of the treats that lead inside. Click and praise him while he’s inside if he goes in on his own.

Repeat the above steps throughout the day.

Begin adding a verbal command like “home” or “crate”

*Step 2 Feed inside the crate.

Before giving Doggo his meal, give the queue to go inside the crate. When he goes inside, click and place his mail inside. Leave the door open while he eats.

When he is comfortable with that stop closing the door while he eats his meal. Remember to give him lots of praise while he’s inside the crate.

After Doggo is finished eating, say “okay” And slowly open the door to let him know he can come out.


*Step 3 Get him used to the closed door.

Give Doggo the command to go in the crate.Click and reward while he’s inside. Say “okay” to let him know he can come out.

Give the command to go in the crate again. Click and reward while Doggo is inside, then immediately close the door gently. Give him lots of treats and praise through the close door.

Say “okay” and slowly open the door to let him know he can come out.




Once don’t go is getting used to the hang of being inside the crate with the door closed, start increasing the time he stays in there before giving him a treat and letting him out.




*Step 4 staying alone

Give the command to go in the crate. Click and reward while Doggo is inside, then immediately close the door gently. Give him lots of treats and praise through the close door.

Wait about 20 seconds before saying “Okay“ and letting him out.

Repeat steps 1 to 2 a few more times.

Start stepping away (4 to 6 steps away) from the crate while Doggo is inside with the door closed.

Return to the crate and give him a treat.

Say “okay” and slowly open the door to let him know he can come out.

When Doggo is comfortable with steps 4 to 5, begin waiting for a longer period of time before you return to the crate and let him out.

*Step 5 alone in the crate while you are out the house.

Top tip: have a frozen treat inside a Kong ready 

Begin leaving the room

Wall Doggo is in the crate with the door closed. Start with a few seconds and then work your way up to 1 hour before returning then given him a treat and letting him out. Don’t make a big deal or sound excited when you do so to keep Doggo calm. 

Repeat step one throughout the day.

When Doggo is comfortable with you being out of the room while he is in the crate you can start leaving the house for 10 minutes. Before you do, leave yummy treats like a stuffed Kong in the crate to keep him busy.

When you return after 10 minutes calmly give Doggo a treat and then let him out.

Build up the time you’re out of the house to 2 hours.




A four month old puppy can be left 3 to 4 hours. A five month old puppy can be left 4 to 5 hours in a closed crate. 

Ideally your dog walker or doggy day care Will be there during the day to collect and walk your Doggo 😁
