Our Training Methods

I believe dog training to be very much an individual and personal experience, and I view each dog as unique, each with it’s own individual personality and traits.  Therefore, when establishing any training program I ensure that it is one that is tailor made to suit each dog and their owners needs.

I believe when using the correct positive training techniques, dogs can learn to make the correct choices without force or punishment. Dogs like to work and enjoy a challenge. When presented with the opportunity to do so they will aim to please and earn their rewards. Encouraging this interaction will create a wonderful bond, between dogs and their owners. It also makes training your dog an enjoyable time, rather than one that is avoided.

As dogs don’t understand human language and live in a human world filled with human expectations, I believe we need to try to learn their language and try to see things from their perspective. When we take this attitude on board and consider our dog’s world differently, together we can begin to create a more respectful relationship. With this new mind set, use of management strategies, enrichment and other positive training methods, we can assist our dogs with a kinder and more gentle approach.

I am here to support you while you assist your dog towards understanding what is expected from them in their day to day life. Whether it be general manners training, or assisting dogs that need more specialised attention, we can arrange the appropriate training service for your dog.

My aim is to provide you with the best skills to assist your dog with its individual training needs.  To achieve this I ask that you please read through the Training Services  listed, then contact me so that together I can establish which service best suits both you and your dog’s requirements.

I look forward to sharing my force free training skills with my clients and their dogs….a kinder approach to dog training.
