"What is dog behaviour? Everything your dog does would be classed as behaviour. Some good which we like, some bad which we don’t. However your dog does it all for the same reason, to get something out of it. If we keep this in mind everything your dog does is RIGHT!" 

Steve Griffiths – Founder & Head Trainer

Reactivity in dogs is 80% what we deal with on a daily basis. This is predominantly fear based and been produced through a bad experience, so let’s control the experiences as confident dogs aren’t reactive dogs!

As a behaviourist it is my job to get you to understand why your dog does something and how we can change it. By getting the right mind set will help your dog make the right decisions, this is why I train people not dogs!
Training a dog will be one of the hardest things you ever undertake, but, get it right and the rewards are huge.  Remember - there are no bad dogs...



  • 121 Behavioural Session (60 minutes) – £70

  • 121 Behavioural Course (4 weeks) – £250
