My training methods are scientifically based, kind and fun. My approach is very dog centric - it is so important that we meet your dog's emotional, physical and breed specific needs before focusing on the behaviour or training 'problem' itself. Games based training focuses on wiring the brain in a certain way to train concepts. So what are concepts? Instead of training sit, down, stay etc which are merely behaviours, I focus on training essential life skills such as optimism, impulse control, calmness, grit, resilience, independence....the list goes on. As you can see, these are way more important to your dog than learning how to sit on command.  The added bonus is that you will feel excited to train using this method, instead of it feeling like a chore - games based training is truly addictive.

It is also very effective for more serious behaviour issues. Most of the cases I see are dogs that are really struggling to cope in the world and when we focus on rewiring the brain to be more optimistic and helping them develop more effective coping strategies, then they can start to enjoy life a bit more, and you can start to enjoy having a dog again. I know personally how hard it can be to have a 'difficult' dog, but no dog or relationship is lost - there is always a solution. That is my promise to you.

As a Dynamic Dog Practitioner I am also certified to assess your dog's gait and posture and check for any issues that may be causing pain and discomfort. A recent study has shown that up to 80% of dog's with behaviour issues may have pain as an underlying or contributing factor. This has certainly been my experience and part of your behaviour plan will include this assessment to make sure we are looking at the 'whole' picture and not just the behaviour problem.
