AVA-accredited dog trainer Singapore


AVA call up again, to request my for renewing of my " AVA-accredited dog trainer license " !
I had spoken to the person about the loop hole on their new scheme for this issue, AVA required dog's owner of cat. "A" & "B" dog to undergo a proper training and achieved with a certificate in order have a license being issue to the owner.

On the day of implementation till today, I received several calls that owner request the following:
1) Do you sell "German Shepherd Dog" that comes with an obedience cert. so that I don't need to go thru the full course and be able to have a license!
2) Do you sell cert. so that I could use it for applying for a dog license here in Singapore!
3) Can I leave my dog with you to train, so that I do not need to under go the training and later you provide me the cert. for me to apply for the license!
4) Can I pay you the full course and only go thru 1 to 2 lessons to have the obedience cert.?

The above was feedback to the officer, what is the objective for this new law? Is a good sign for the Authority to have new law to control responsibility dog's owner but ???

These following questions was brought on the first call from the AVA officer, he told me he is going to bring up to the higher officer but today I ask about my feedback did them look into it. Silent is the answer?

1) How AVA issue the license? Base on the Obedience cert issue by the AVA-accredited dog trainer and owner have to fill up the training Q&A form from AVA.
2) Did AVA go to the owner home to check whether the dog had really under go the training? NO, if neccessay then they will go and check.
3) What if the dog is not train and the cert is easy bought by the owner. How can AVA know about it?  The owner had answer the training Q&A form from AVA and all answer is positive (so is already trained and meet the requirement)! 
4) My last question to the officer, if you happen to be the dog's owner that don't want to train the dog but just want to pay a minimum sum of money to buy a basic obedience cert. so that you can easily get the dog's
license from AVA. Will you answer all the training Q&A form from AVA in positive or negative?

** the above is what I knew from the tell conversation.

Before the above law was implement, I'm fully disagree that AVA invite those who/whom are in the trade to work out a guide line for these rules! Why? Ask yourself will you suggest a law to tie yourself down or a law that indirect benefits you?

The AVA can have a law as what I think is fare to everyone include the public!
All dogs small, medium or big must have insurance against accidents happen, like bite human or dog bit dog!
Small dogs : max.compensation  $5,000.00
Medium dogs:  max. compensation $8,000.00
Big dogs: max.compensation  $10,000.00
Cat A & B dog must have grantor of $100K.

** as a owner dog they have a better understanding about their dog's temperament!
- If any the dog have behaviors problem the owner will be alert and automatically sending their dog to under go a obedience training other wise they have to pay a very high premium for their renew insurance!
- If they don't renew their insurance to protect the public and others, AVA should give them a heavy penalty(fine) to these dog owners and for them they have to be responsible with whatever claims from the victim with doubt the amount! That make them be more responsible and care in handling their own dog!

In today market event university can be easily bought! 

We are 100% dog training school, we are not a breeder and we don't work with any pet shops or breeders to sell cert.!

Dogs training in Singapore

Class training for dogs

25/7/13 (Finally completed his lessons)
Yoshi was a re home dog with behaviors problems. This Japanese spitz was train during puppy by a dog behaviorist from an animal shelter house that don't believes in correction and scolding the dog. Since this dog had gone thru puppy training by this specialist , the new owner had given a chance to attend the lesson.

Owner was told to divert it's attend by using treats or try to ignore it! Owner was very doubtful with it and think if my dog bite on others who will be responsible? Dogs trainer, dogs behaviorist or the dog's owner?

This dog problem: stubborn and aggressive! The problem for this dog when push it's butt to sit it bite, when paying rough with other dogs try to stop him it bite and likes to jump.....

Dogs and Puppies rehome for adoption!

Dogs and Puppies re home for adoption!

9/5/2013 ( What type of responsibility does this people have?)
Just received  a call from my student from oversea that ask for a favor!  Very annoying with this incident. She said the person that help her to re home the 3 dogs had told her to cancel her license from AVA herself  and she aks me for a favor to help! Very ridiculous money this girl know how to make but documentation she don't do!

Reason for this owner to give up her dogs is her husband is station in oversea for 2 years and the apartment there don't allow dogs! In Singapore she don't mind paying for the rented apartment but her child is going oversea next month for study and her maid don't not want to stay alone here only to look after the 3 dogs and it will be very lonely for her. So have no choice but to give her love dogs to others to adopt.

She may have to pay the service for re homing her dogs to a good home and for those who is specially doing re home may have collect some documentation/service charge. As nothing is free in this world! If my student is going to cancel her dogs license, AVA will ask why? Your dogs is stolen , loss, died or re home any document prove?

For transfer of dog's ownership my students have to provide the details of the new owner!
