Singapore is our 3rd stop in our Animal Training Around the World Series! Located on the Southern tip of the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia, between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea, and features a hot, wet climate and tropical rainforests.
- Singapore is one of only 3 surviving city states in the world.
- But, it is the only island city-state in the world.
- Beside the main island, the nation of Singapore also includes 63 other tiny islands.
- You cannot buy chewing gum in Singapore.
- Singapore has towers that have been built in the shape of the palm of one's hand to symbolize and attract good Feng shui.
In order for training to be successful, it should be flexible and focus on building a kinship of shared trust between the dog and owner. Taking the time necessary to understand your pup by learning their temperament as well as their learning style will set the stage for building a powerful bond! This shared connection will help make training more relaxed and enjoyable for you as well as your dog!
Singapore Training Trends
We asked Canine Solutions to help us uncover some of the dog training trends in Singapore. Dog training is not always at the forefront of the owners mind in Singapore. As per Angie, the Canine Solution center Manager, "the dog training business here is still quite young. The mindset of dog owners here aren't really towards training their dog professionally, as in they don't think of the importance of getting their dog trained when they first have their dog. It's usually the case when there are problems/issues, then they seek training."
Educating pet owners of the value of training before problems arise is the key. Working with a certified trainer to help facilitate the training process with your dog is something we wholeheartedly suggest. Why not give your puppy (and yourself) a leg up on the training process by acquiring the knowledge and skills to become an amazing team?

Training Tips and Information
"Engage with your Dog, Motivate their Drive, Manage their Lifestyle" is the catch phrase over at Canine Solutions! Marvelous advice!
It is beneficial to focus on the relationship between the owner and their dog. They believe its important that the dog sees its owner as "the reward (not the food or the toy), and that the owner is able to manage his/her dog and be able to truly enjoy the company of his/her dog."
Absolutely! In order for training to be successful, it must be flexible and focus on building a kinship of shared trust between the dog and owner. Each pup is unique, therefore what works well for one dog, may not be right for another. Taking the time necessary to understand your pup by learning their temperament as well as their learning style will set the stage for building a powerful bond! This shared connection will help make training more relaxed and enjoyable for you as well as your dog!
- Keep your dog active.
