With their training techniques and social cues, Boli can teach a dog to be more sociable and open-minded, which will make them more sociably and open to new experiences.
The trainers hope that Boli will become a standard part of the dog trainer’s arsenal as well as a useful tool in the home.
“Boli has been used in training by thousands of dogs in the United States,” said David Smith, founder of Boli Training, which has a focus on training dogs in Australia and New Zealand.
“Many dogs are so curious about their owners and we wanted to create a dog training tool that could teach them how to interact with their owners.”
Smith also works with a company called BoliDog, which offers a “boli-training” course in Melbourne.
He said that Bolis training techniques could be used in homes and in restaurants to help people bond with their dogs.
“There is a huge demand for this, so it’s something that we’re trying to cater for,” he said.
“People need to know how to do this, and we’re also going to make sure it’s easy to do.”
Boli is an excellent training tool for the owner because you don’t have to do anything special, just sit with the dog and let him do the talking.
“If you give a dog an idea that he is going to get angry, it will. “
You can’t control the dog’s temperament, but you can control the tone of his voice,” he explained.
“If you give a dog an idea that he is going to get angry, it will.
If you give him a suggestion about something that he wants to do, it’ll happen.”
For example, if a dog is given a cue to stand still, it may not respond, but if the dog is told to sit down and not run around, it can do so.
In some cases, if the owner is a person and the dog has a lot of friends, the dog may be more likely to take a step back and wait for the other dog to get bored.
“This is one of the most important things to teach your dog, and this is one that you need to do in the right way,” said Smith.
“When your dog is calm, you will want him to have a certain kind of interaction with you.”
Smith believes Boli training is a “huge” and “bigger than a puppy”.
He said the company’s training courses have been seen by more than 600 dogs since their launch.
“We see the dogs in our training courses as they’re going to be a part of their lives for the rest of their life,” he told Al Jazeera.
“They’re going the right places, learning the correct things and helping them become good people.”
Smith hopes that his dogs will also learn about how to socialise with humans.
“The more you can teach your dogs to behave the better they are going to become, because we’re teaching them about the interaction between humans and dogs,” he added.
The Boli-Training course will be available to Bali dog trainers from April 25.
The Australian Dog Training Association is also promoting the training.
“A lot of dogs are trained to be very good with people, but the problem is when they start to have problems with other dogs, they start having a bit of a problem with humans,” said CEO Peter Jones.
“That’s when they can become aggressive and cause problems.”
Jones said that although Boli is popular in Australia, the industry is struggling to maintain its position as a training tool.
“What we’re seeing in the US is that dog training is starting to die out, and I think that’s because the training systems are starting to get outdated and that people are starting their own courses,” he stated.
Jones said it’s a “bad” time to be training a dog, because it’s “time to move on to other things”.
“There are many, many good dogs out there that people love, and many of them are training their own dogs, and so we’re all in the same boat,” he concluded.
