Looking for a permanent dog training solution for your dog and not just
a quick fix?

The consultation is an incredibly effective way to kick start your training if you want to make big changes fast.

Any members of the family who wish to attend may attend. Consultations can be arranged to suit both parties and are a relaxed way of learning.

Being at my home allows us to control the environment and set up situations that we can manage, learn from and progress quickly from if your dog allows us!

A dog training method that
really works

The way I work is very different from a traditional dog trainer.

A traditional dog trainer will tend to focus on the symptoms, however this usually means that over time the same or even different issues return!

When a different problem occurs you find yourself back in the same helpless position that you were originally in.

You find yourself with a new problem that you don’t understand and can’t solve. Your options are to pay for more training or try somebody else! Agghhh!!!

A new approach to dog training
– why this method is different

First I share with you how to get your dog to CHOOSE to listen to you.

The immediate results of this are they are less challenging, more ready to co-operate and calmer! YES!! You will have a calmer dog 🙂

By understanding what is going on in the dog’s mind you are left with a completely different feeling towards your dogs behaviour.

You will discover and understand what your dog was trying to do and why. After the consultation you will look at your dog in a fresh and different way.

With a new understanding you can continue to develop the bond with your dog.

You are not left alone

With 12 months phone and email support and 3 months FREE Access to my video website you have all the support you need to succeed.

Once we have won your dog’s mind, changing their behaviour or stopping an unwanted behaviour can be achieved with no fear or gadgets.

Does it feel like your dogs playing
a game?

That is because every dog is playing a game of “Who’s in charge?” This is a game where all the dogs are born with a clear set of rules that they all know inside out! The problem is that we humans don’t know the rules and so it’s very hard to win!

In a 1 on 1 consultation I’ll explain the rules and show you how to win. Then issues and unwanted behaviors can easily be addressed.

Treating the cause and not just
the symptom

The important thing that you will very quickly realise is that we will be treating the cause of the problems and not just the symptoms.

This means that the method will work and not just end up redirecting the problem into another area! Thus you will end up with a happier dog.

Afterwards you will have all the tools and knowledge at your finger tips so that when I leave things get better and better.

Interested? Then feel free to get in touch using the Contact page.

There’s no such thing as a magic wand. However you will end up with a different dog if you’re willing to follow the simple steps that I share with you.

Young children, babies and dogs

How to make it safe and enjoyable for everyone

Children will be children and dogs will always be dogs. However setting down some ground rules for living together is critical for a happy family. My book “What the dogs taught me about being a parent” is a great read if you are interested in parenting and raising a dog!

It is important that the dog learns to respect the baby and child and also that the children respect the dog.

Knowing what to teach your children is the key. There are so many simple ways to create that special relationship between your young children and your dogs.

Making sure that the entire family is fully aware of all the do’s and don’ts will allow you all to develop a wonderful relationship and get the most out of your dog.

Got more than one dog?

The importance of successful dog pack integration is often under estimated. An extra dog can easily unbalance a pack and knowing how to maintain that stability with the pack is crucial for a long term happy household.

A dog that is brought into a house to accompany a lonely dog that has developed issues will usually copy – not change – the behaviour of the first dog.

Training two or more dogs can very quickly become a nightmare or it can be a wonderful experience if you know what you are doing from the start. Remember your dogs are communicating with each other all the time!

The question is… “What are they saying about you?” 🙂

Dog obedience training

Basic and advanced command work

As a professional dog trainer it never ceases to amaze me how quickly dogs learn when they are taught correctly and in a way that makes sense to them.

In a very short space of time I can share with you the tricks top dog trainers use to get dogs to respond quickly, and all of the time.

For those of you who wish to use hand signals and more complex commands I can show you how with the use of clicker training.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised whether you think you have the smartest dog on the block or the dog that just can’t learn anything!
