About Malta Dog Training Services

Welcome to MaltaDogTraining.com and thank you for taking time to visit my website!

about malta dog training - robert spiteriFor me Malta Dog Training Services is a dream of a life time. Our four legged friends deserve nothing but the best. It's not enough just to feed and walk our dogs, they need much more, and through this venture I am trying to offer various services for all dog enthusiasts ranging from sport training, ring training, obedience training, behavior consultancy for dogs with behavioral issues and other services.

Having started training my personal dog some 15 years ago I always had a passion and love for dogs and training. What at first started as a small hobby soon turned out to be a great passion, I started studying about dogs, training techniques and dogs mind. Have founded the Maltese Rottweiler Club and The Malta Dog Training Services.

I furthered my studies with a Scottish institution and graduated as a dog Behaviour Consultant which offers me the possibility to help to rehabilitate problematic dogs. I also trained with a professional Belgian sport dog trainer and am offering various group training (PET scheme), personal training, sport training etc. Most important thing is to mention that all my methods are based of theory and practicals and with total respect towards our dogs based on solely positive methodologies. Amongst other things I am constantly being trained in order to assist and train dogs that are designated to guide the blind during their first year of training.
I am striving to offer a professional fully qualified service/s to all canine friends. Please enjoy having a look around Malta Dog Training Services website, and if you need any assistance feel free to contact me, all information can be obtained from the Contact page.

Experience

Apart from my qualification and memberships I have been involved in training dogs for basic and advanced obedience since 1995, originally I started training with a local club with police dog trainers. From there I have started reading and approaching new training methodologies which led me to found a club of my own based on positive methods. In the meantime I have also founded the Maltese Rottweiler Club in 2005 and started training and practicing in advance obedience for sport and protection work. Since then I have trained over 100 dogs in basic obedience, in the past 2 years I have also qualified another 105 dogs in my PET scheme training Level T1, 30 of which continued to T2 level and another 6 are now doing their T3 with me. I have also organised various seminars about dog health, training etc.. Since I have qualified as a Dog Behaviour Consultant I have a track record and assisted over several dogs (for which I can account for individually)with problematic issues involving aggression, anxiety, stress and all sorts of problematic behaviours.

Also in the past years I was involved in training and guiding puppy walkers with the Guide Dog Foundation here in Malta I was in charge of a total of 10 dogs so far, 6 of which are now in service, one was declined by the school and the other three are presently waiting to start training.
