Training Technique Developed at Island Miniature Schnauzers


The calm, yet assertive training, of a desired response from your dog/puppy.   Your canine never gets her/his way with anything – i.e. no pulling on the leash, no zig-zagging on the leash, no nipping, no lunging at other dogs, no barking at your fence line, no barking at your front door, no barking at other dogs out on your walk, no barking from your car, no barking from her/his carrier/playpen – not doing anything that is not acceptable.

The quick, positive results from our training is achieved from utilizing the “Cesar” touch.  You will experience an improvement in your dog/puppy within 5 minutes.  You will learn in 4 hours how to communicate with your canine with a positive and telepathic training technique resulting in a calm and responsive dog.


For you to be capable of training your canine, you must be in a relaxed and calm state within your body and mind.  We at Island Miniature Schnauzers have designed and built training classes to allow you to achieve harmony with your pup-pup.  Our knowledge has been achieved through years of living, training and loving Miniature Schnauzers and recently through the hands-on training with Cesar Millan at his Dog Psychology Centre in California, USA in 2018.

Introductory Course – 0TATT1 – Maximum of 4 Students – 18 years and older – All small breed dogs/puppies – up to 30 lbs. 

What will you learn from this course?

  • How to properly implement the Cesar Millan “Tsch”.
  • How to train your dog using Cesar Millan’s telepathic and calming methodologies.
  • How to walk your dog in a calm manner with no pulling, lunging or barking.
  • How to walk a pack of dogs; how to ask your dog to sit and stay and how to stop your dog from being aggressive with people/dogs.

Preliminary Information:

Please bring your own dog.  If you don’t have a dog, we will supply you with one of ours.

This is our 4-hour introductory course which teaches the Owner how to ask their dog/puppy to work with them in a calm and ready-to-learn state.   

We start our training at 9:00 a.m.  You can park on the grass along the side of the house. Our office is in the downstairs of our home.  Beverley will greet you and your dog at the front door. 

Your dog will be “parked” in a carrier while it is in the office.  A water bowl is supplied.

The reason why Cesar’s training works so perfectly well and so quickly is that he always remains in a calm state.   You will be taught how to become internally calm through a 6-minute meditation session.  We will meditate before we commence each training module.  Our dogs are in the office while we mediate so they too become calm and relaxed prior to commencing each training module.

Beverley will demonstrate with Wolfgang how to achieve each step within each module.    We will have Training Associates to assist the students.
