Behaviour problems are more common than you expect. A recent study showed around a third of young dogs euthanised in the UK was for behaviour reasons. Behaviour problems are stressful for you, as an owner, as well as your dog. Whether the problem you are experiencing is on walks, at home, or when you leave them on their own.
Using positive, evidence-based methods that always put welfare first, Behaviour By Becca can help change your nervous or reactive dog into a calm, relaxed individual who can enjoy their life with you, in and around the busy city of London.

Becca was absolutely brilliant in coaching me through how to deal with some of my dogs behavioural issues.
She was very quick to identify the problem and come up with solutions using positive reinforcement. Her calm nature and and approach made it a really pleasant experience and easy to follow guidance.
Firstly Becca met myself and my dog in our home to go through a few details regarding his behaviour and background and the goals that I wanted to achieve with him. We then took to carrying out small excersises to get me used to the way in which i should be be approaching the training. I didn't hesitate to ask as many questions as I could think of and Becca was more than happy to go through everything as much as I needed to.
After our first session myself and my dog had two more sessions with Becca, taking the training on to the streets and in to the park where I was helped and guided even further. (It's one thing someone telling you and another thing showing you, which was fantastic)
I continued the training by myself- maybe one or two short sessions a day but then found myself, with the knowledge Becca had given me, to be able to use the training methods every time we both stepped outside the house together.
Becca was amazing when it came to staying in contact and checking on my progress of my dogs behaviour.
I sometimes find trainers will do their job and then you'll lose contact but Becca truly cares about your progress and has stayed in contact- which I really think is key to having the best you can get from a behaviourist.
Over all Becca has given me the confidence I now need to continue training with my dog, who has already made such a drastic improvement with his behaviour than when myself and Becca first met a few months back.
Couldn't recommend her more highly. Thanks so much!!!! More...
