THIS PAGE IS BEING UPDATED The Behavioural Issues That I Help With

Your dogs behaviour can be problamtic for you and others. When it gets out of hand and you don't know which way to turn then you can find help I have been where you are, my dog Bert appeared to want to say hello, but out of the blue, he would snap, this escalated and he began running toward other dogs barking and I didn’t know what to do! Through understanding, management and force-free training, I have proof that it can be done. This is Bert meeting a dog at a busy Donkey Sanctuary in September click here It’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it Work with me and develop the dog that you and your family have dreamt of. Investing in one of your own, specific reactivity programs will be the step that you need to manage and improve your dog’s behaviour struggles. Without professional, force-free training you can unintentionally make the situation much worse and create a dog that is so desperate to feel safe that they bite. Your dog is constantly communicating to you that they feel unsafe and can’t cope. I will teach you to understand your dog’s behaviour, manage their arousal levels and how promote calm and communicate with them and make them feel safe and secure in any event. Below are some of the common behaviours that I deal with. Please book you discovery call

Repetitive Behaviours

Behaviours such as chasing their tails, excess licking, or biting, particularly paws can be frustrating for you and lead to a lack of calmness, reactive behaviour and your dog being unsettled.
