1:1 Behavioural Sessions, Multi-skilled Workshops & Meet Ups

1:1 Behavioural Training

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...
