1-2-1 dog training & behavioural advice
This is either in your own home, or at a safe enclosed location. Consultations are always on a 121 basis. This ensures you receive my maximum focus and attention to help you with whatever behaviour or training issues you might be having with your dog.
If your dog suffers anxiety, barks excessively, is aggressive, a chewer or toilet training, or maybe you just want them to just come back when you ask them to, or you want them to walk nicely on the lead, for example, then we can help.
We can help you to work out why your dog is behaving in the way they do and we teach you how to train them out of the unwanted behaviour.
Every dog is an individual. As different as you and me. There is no ‘one size fits all’ method in behaviour and training.
My methods are very much reward based but this does not mean I am constantly throwing treats at them. Rewarding you’re doesn’t have to be food. It depends what they love the most, treats, a ball, a favourite toy or even just your voice.
I use positive reinforcement, but will also ‘correct’ a dog if they display unwanted behaviour. How will they know if they are displaying unwanted behaviour?
By ‘correct’ I am not talking about being forceful or dominant towards them. A simple change of body language or vocal command, not shouting, can be all that it will take. I have a firm, but fair approach.
We need to work towards a situation where you and your dog trust each other and can build a long lasting, solid relationship, together.
