One of the first things I hear from the dog owners I work with is “my dog is great but …”
Is your dog unruly, overly excitable, naughty, aggressive, reactive to other dogs, nervous, anxious, or noisy?
Are the issues getting progressively worse despite your best efforts?
Does your dog make you feel embarrassed, frustrated, scared or even angry?
Are you worried about the future you have with your dog?
Do you long for a calmer more balanced dog that you can enjoy your time with?
Yes! Good Dog can help with one to one, quality dog and puppy behaviour assessment and training mentoring delivered in the comfort of your home.
Dogs learn best through reward, enjoyment and consistency from their owners. My aim is to give you the knowledge and skills to address any undesirable or frustrating behaviours from your dog.
I am a qualified dog behaviourist with an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviours and lots of experience with dogs, I can deliver an ethical, calm and affordable package of dog behaviour management solutions that fit around your life and is tailored to your dog’s needs.
I can help you understand why your dog is displaying certain behaviours and assist you in guiding your dog into achieving better behaviours and work towards re-balancing the owner-dog relationship.

Our Cockapoo, Maisie, loves Mandy’s visits. Mandy’s patience, knowledge and methods are excellent. Her experience shines through in all that she does. Maisie has learnt so much from Mandy. I have no hesitation in recommending Mandy to anyone looking for a first class training service.

Thank you Bob, Maisie’s a fantastic dog

Mandy has supported us with two dogs.

Firstly a dog that we fostered who had behavioural issues, he was aggressive to just about everything due to a lack of de-sensitisation when he was young, had severe separation anxiety and was a nightmare to walk. Mandy helped us implement techniques that not only supported us to work with Max but ultimately led to him being able to find his forever home.

Mandy has also helped us with our puppy - she first met him when he was 8 weeks old but helped us select the dog that would fit our family. Mandy worked with Jack on basic commands and has only been a call away should we need any additional support. Jack is now 16 months and is a great family pet who understands a lot of commands and is a joy to be in our family.

Thank you Yes Good Dog!!

Had a great experience today with Mandy and our naughty little min pin Milo. She's clearly very knowledgeable about dogs and we already seeing results.

We have found the advice very comprehensive and helpful. The puppy pack has lots of held and makes a lot of sense and easy to follow. Mandy obviously knows what she is talking about, our puppy has settled down very quickly following the puppy pack.

Thank you Mandy !
Ava my beautiful GSD had become very reactive, almost aggressive in behaviour. The main reason for this sudden change was that Ava had been one of a pack of three GSD's in our home , (Due to age we had lost Missy and Molly ).
Mandy has helped me understand Ava's change of behaviour given me tools , resources and training to resolve her issues .
Mandy truly cares and goes above and beyond , I highly recommend Mandy to all !

Some would say I am an experienced dog owner, having had 4 German shepherds, Rhodesian ridgeback and a westie. All excellent, well behaved and adorable dogs. My current dog, a shih-tzu, is aggressive to other dogs, very noisy in the garden and basically disobedient and wilful! Mandy has spent five hours with us and the change in my dog from day 1 is amazing! It is hard work but it's worth it. I would not hesitate in recommending Mandy to anyone. I wish I had contacted her earlier!

I often assist Mandy with different situations, either as a stooge person or cyclist, the difference in seeing the dogs reaction after changing the behaviour is fantastic not only for the dog but for the owner too

Yes Good Dog - Solihull Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I most love helping rebalance the owner-dog relationship. People love their dogs and are quite often reaching despair and are really worried about the future. It is my aim to help owners understand, manage and offer alternative behaviours giving the owner the knowledge to be able to teach correctly and give their dog confidence in knowing the correct behaviour to choose. My puppy classes are all about building a confident optimistic dog that can face the challenges that life brings. The more fun your puppy has the more your puppy will learn

What inspired you to start your own business?

Dogs have been a part of my life since I was a young girl with spending a lot of time on my grandparents’ farm and established boarding kennels. To my delight I was surrounded by a new litter of pups every other year and then most weekends I would be off with my mother and grandmother to dog shows all over the country. Even as a youngster I was amazed by the loyalty of these wonderful animals, I was taught to embrace the dog's natural behaviours and channel their energy and intelligence. You cannot help but love them all for their individuality and quirks but it is as important to remain balanced in your care-taking and guidance.
I have always owned at least one dog but my journey to turn my passion into a career started about ten years ago when I took on two adult rescue dogs called Murphy and Kelly. I was so pleased to give them a home but some of their more challenging behaviours were so deep-seated and couldn’t be dealt with through basic training alone.
At that time the vast majority of dog training methods seemed harsh and verging on abusive and I didn’t want to end up with a robot dog which obeyed through fear. When I dug a little deeper I found that the tide was turning to new scientific advancements into teaching dogs and that is how I started on a path of studying canine behaviours in-depth, with a particular focus on the effectiveness of merging some of the more empathetic old school methods with the newer positive reward-based theories.
Over the course of the next decade I studied everything from animal psychology to dog first aid – gaining an accredited diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviours. I have been a volunteer at a dog rehoming centre so I have gained invaluable experience with different breeds and a variety of behavioural issues. I have undertaken courses in canine body language and facial expression and I ensure my training and knowledge is up to the minute by regularly attending training sessions and seminars on everything from Canine Psychology and Behaviours, Clicker Training to Canine Aggression and Rehabilitation. I also run Scent Work for Pet Dog classes which is a great activity for you and your dog to become a part of

Why should our clients choose you?

My approach reflects a combination of my qualifications, my lifetime of experience with dogs and my love for these fantastic animals. This has allowed me to develop a truly ‘balanced approach’ to find the solutions for you and your dog.
It is so important you feel comfortable and trust the person you are consulting about your much loved pet. I am DBS checked, fully insured and adhere to the Data Protection Act 1998. I will work with you to establish a package of training that suits you and your dog and deliver it in your home to equip you with the tools you need to have the best life with your pet.
