About

I work with a visionary and proven training method from Absolute Dogs. Based completely within positive reward training, yet looking from the Dogs point of view, it approaches the on-gong relationship between you and your dog. It uses techniques that reshape the Dogs brain and train for the situation to come, not whilst you're actively in it.

Dear Steve, really hoping that your rescue Girl will start to flourish with continued use of the games based training. Thank you for your support.

We would highly recommend the training our puppy Maggie has received from trainer Catriona at “A PAWSITIVE STEP”.

Our puppy Maggie had a great time attending the one hour session once a week over a six week duration and we would highly recommend these classes to any one with a new puppy. The gentle training has made a world of difference to Maggie’s life skill development.

Catriona has a kind and professional approach to us and our puppy that was truly impressive and Maggie seemed to respond to her puppy tools and training methods.

Maggie has now completed her puppy training and we have now embarked on “A PAWSITIVE LIFESKILLS” once a week training and fun sessions.

Thank you Catriona for giving us the tools to have A pawsitive beginning with our dog.

I found working wit Catriona from A Pawsitive step, very helpful. She is a really lovely lady and clearly knows her stuff. It was great to learn and understand why my dogs were behaving the way they were. I really enjoyed learning new ways in which to teach them to disengaged, work on their frustration and to learn calmness. The dogs really enjoy all the new concept game and it amazing how working on these really changes the dogs behaviours. More...

It has been a joy working with Catriona. She is so passionate about her work and, in just 3 sessions, has been able to change how we interact with our dog to make sure that he is feeling fulfilled. She has also given us a number of tools to help him to stay calm when he feels aroused, such as when visitors come. Working with Catriona has been the best thing we've ever done for our dog. More...

Catriona has been an amazing help already just from our first conversation. I'm really looking forward to working with her and learning more about what goes on in my dog's head!

Lyn, that's very gracious of you and I’m grateful. I’m looking forward to you rediscovering your dream dog.

Q&As

Helping people understand more about their beloved companion or companions, than they thought possible. Seeing the 'wow' moments and the transformations resulting in happier Dogs and even happier owners...or should that be 'Staff'! ;-)

My Mentor, the current science available for animal welfare, but most importantly, the knowledge now available that truly provides an even better, more considered approach to Dog training. Train for the situation to come, not whilst you're in the situation.

I am honest, hardworking and passionate about what I do.

I actually believe that due to the surge in Dog ownership, existing owners as well as new ones miss the subtleties that you spot in face to face training. online training is a great start but it's the detail that truly propels your relationship forward with your companions and only someone who's with you in person can help you spot and work with those moments.

I had my Booster jab in October 2021, work mostly outdoors and of course, observe current guidelines where common sense is required. I always carry anti bacterial Gell and spare facemasks in my car, should anyone request and will always put my clients concerns first.

Services

Classes based on training the personality of the dog as well as bringing out the best between you and your Dog. held in either blocks of 4 or 6 classes, we training from an enclosed Barn within the Charlton Park Estate. New classes being advertised for the new year soon. Subjects will be Puppy, Adolescent, Senior, Rescue Dog based. Also classes for household manners in general. Suitable for all life stages.

Booked in either blocks of 4 and then additional sessions dependant on individual requirement.

We start with a 1.5 hours Consultation, with me sending a summary and action plan for the client to start following immediately. This is then followed up with three separate hour long sessions. First session to be mutually agreed between Client and Trainer upon payment, follow-up sessions to be arranged subsequently depending on individual need.
