Dog Training Sessions

Recall training with Santi. Rewarding him with what he loves best…… diving in the water.

A dog learns by simple association (A predicts B), so if your dog does something and is rewarded then the action is more likely to be repeated. For this to be effective the reward must be connected with the action.

Every dog and their issue is unique and they will respond differently to specific methods of behaviour training. My advice reflects on the modern-day approach, always using positive, force-free training which is based on modern day science.

The aim is to focus on developing the relationship between the dog and its owners by using science-based, force-free training methods. All the training is done in the comfort of your own home as this enables the dog to gain an understanding and make the right choice during real-life situations. By guiding you through new skills to enhance your dog’s repertoire and generalising behaviours wherever and whenever you require your dog to behave.

  • Basic obdeniance
  • Loose lead walking
  • Recall training

Teaching Santi impulse control to reduce puppy mouthing/grabbing

I specalise in:

  • Anxious and fearful dogs
  • Reactivity behaviours
  • Rescue Dogs

The best way to get results is with a training program individually tailored to your exact needs. I create training programs that will teach you how to use reward based, force-free training so that you can properly enjoy having a dog, whilst providing the best quality of life for your dog.

My background is in rehabilitating rescue dogs and getting them ready to be comfortable and happy in their forever homes. Working in a rescue centre, I got to experience working with dogs of all different breeds, temperaments and sizes and I’ve tackled many training issues. I’ve also run classes for puppy owners teaching key, foundational skills to help prevent behaviour problems from occurring.

Using the exercises I’ve taught you, We’ll then write you a personalised training program to take you and your dog from where you are now to where you want to be. We’ll work with you to break the training program down into achievable milestones so that when you look at it, you feel confident and motivated to put it into practice. 

So what does this all cost….
