Frequently Asked Questions
I have been to other dog trainers and nothing has worked.
I'm sorry to hear that. However, not all dog trainers are the same and my methods are proven to work with any dog, breed or age. I use techniques based on dog psychology, so that you can quickly and effectively resolve any issues as you are working on the same wavelength as your dog.
What Do You Mean by Leadership Skills?
Dogs thrive when they live in a household where they have learnt calm social behaviour. To teach this you need to have excellent leadership skills such as good communication, fairness, compassion and be happy to set some household rules for your dogs. All sounds simple but if you apply human psychology you and your dog will have problems understanding one another!
We need to build both trust and respect with our dogs - it goes both ways. Providing good quality leadership, in terms that they understand, is critical to a successful relationship. If your dog trusts you but does not respect you or vice versa, it will be difficult to ask anything from your dog and expect your dog to obey you.
I train you to become your dogs leader in a calm, assertive and non aggressive way.
Do you follow a particular Celebrity Dog Trainer ?
No, I have developed my own methods based on up to date scientific research and hands on experience of what works and what doesn't. I have learnt from the best in the world and bring many of these techniques to help your dog.
Turid Rugaas, for example, is the worlds leading expert in Canine communication signals. Dr Ian Dunbar is the leading expert in behavioural science and training. Chad Mackin teaches Dogmanship and conditioned relaxation. Prof Panskepp is the worlds leading expert on dogs and emotions.
I strongly believe that you should learn from the best, develop your own skills and use your knowledge to help the dog you have in front of you. Drawing on my wide experience I have the right tools to do just this.
Why should I book with you?
I have an instinctual understanding of dogs, some call it dog whispering. I am able to build trust and confidence very quickly, helping your dog to relax and learn a different way of behaving. Most importantly I come to help You learn new skills and techniques. Without training you, your dog may work for me but will revert back to old habits once I leave. I help you to learn in a non judgemental manner. My clients talk about their dogs changing beyond recognition after my visit.
Do you offer Group Classes?
At the moment, no I don’t. I prefer to work with you and your dog on a one to one basis. We can move forward at your pace, addressing specific issues in the comfort of your home. You won’t feel like the ‘bad dog owner’ holding the class up, or feel like your dog is the dunce of the group.
It is important to note that 95% of issues can be solved in the one session but some issues may require follow up visits.
I offer a Free 10 minute telephone Consultation - if you have any other questions please do call to discuss your dog with no obligation on 0778 6638171.
