About

At Dog Tired we do training differently. My aim is to train dogs in their natural environment (their home, the park or on a walk) where we can teach them to respond around distractions and deal with the everyday issues they'll come across.

Q&A

During the time I've been working as a dog trainer and behaviourist, I've seen a lot of different situations and sometimes it can be heartbreaking. Seeing a dog who has been abused previously and has lost their trust and faith in people makes me want to do everything possible to help. So when I see a dog conquer that fear and start to trust people again, I feel that I'm helping both owners and their dogs.
Knowing that an owner is pleased with their dogs progress and seeing progress in any shape or form is the best reward this job can give, whether it's a puppy progressing with their obedience or an older dog getting over a problem.

My Border Collie was my inspiration. When we re-homed him I was 8 years old and after seeing how scared he was of people due to previous abuse and how much it had affected him, I wanted to learn more about how his mind worked so that I could help him. I began reading books and we sought the help of a dog trainer, whose enthusiasm for dogs further inspired me. He quickly became a friend and mentor and as I got older I began undertaking qualifications to learn everything I could about dog behaviour, before setting up Dog Tired.

When I work with clients, I want to make sure that they get what they want from the training. Rather than telling them what they should do or want I want them to do, I speak to them to ask them where they want to go with the training. I also don't offer a one size fits all method, dogs learn differently and like people they have different personalities so what works for one dog may not work for another. I look at the individual dog and work with their owner to find the best method, then provide them with the support that they need throughout training.
