The Amazing Gamechangers
They are a united force of ordinary people and their dogs that have seen extraordinary transformations through inspiring their dogs through simple 3-minute games, rather than punishing, depriving or intimidating them!
A revolutionary approach to dog training
The absoluteDogs training revolution started with one simple discovery – you can shape your dog’s brain to make great choices by playing simple games with them! Games teach concepts to your dog like focus, self-control and even to be more optimistic in the face of scary things! Have a struggle? There really is a game for that.
I found absoluteDogs when traditional reward based training wasn’t working for my extremely reactive pit bull. It’s been a year since we started concept training and not only am I a dog trainer now, my pit bull is one of the calmest and smartest dogs at the park.

Transformation through games and concepts is so easy that it is absolutely brilliant. It has given both me and my dogs the confidence and optimism to face anything together as a team. The best part of it is the relationship that we have and continue to build.

Are You Facing a Struggle, There’s a Game for That!
Whatever the struggle with your dog, there’s a game that works! The thing about games, they are crazily fun and it simply doesn’t feel like training. So many training techniques try and get you and your dog to confront the problem, usually resulting in worsening and complete overwhelm (and you feel rubbish about it too!)
“Working with Tom and Lauren is gamechanging!! Training through games is fun, pressure free and really transfers to real life. Their methods are innovative and their teaching is always full of inspiration & energy. Being able to grow a confident and optimistic dog through their training has been a true dream.”
Games Shape Your Dog’s Personality and Choices
The reason games work is because they teach concepts, concepts like self-control, optimism, confidence and focus! These concepts then come in handy in other contexts outside of the game – real-life situations! Think of situations like the moment your dog sees the squirrel or the other dog or visitors come to your house!
Many struggles you have with your dog like barking, pulling on lead often relate to an emotion! These dogs often get labelled stubborn, evil, “dominant” and generally unfriendly – actually they are worried! All the behaviours they could choose when experiencing fear are typically ones we don’t want – BUT – there’s a GAME for that!
A calm dog is a happy, health and long-lived dog and, here’s the crazy thing, you could never train your dog any behaviour or “command” but teach them to be calm through games and they’ll be the easiest, most well behaved dog you could imagine! Calmness is KING!
