About

If you already have a dog and if your dogs behaviour is not as good as you would like, you are probably just as confused as your dog is. You need and want answers to your questions, you need to know why your dog is behaving the way it is. You have probably watched Cesar Milan or Victoria Stillwell trying to help dog owners on TV, you may have read their books, you may have read Jan Fennel, Bruce Fogel, Ian Dunbar etc but you still have problems.

I had a really informative and interesting meet yesterday to help with what I thought was a puppy out of control, within just 24 hours I have a calm and well controlled puppy, there’s a lot of work on my behalf to be done as my whole way of thinking is the complete reverse. I know I have a long way to go but I’ve spent a whole day enjoying time with my beautiful puppy dexter and feel his real character is coming out, as I type this he’s sat snoring on my feet which have Never happened, and I’ve not been jumped on or bitten once. Thank you More...

We are so pleased that we found Steven. When we decided that it was time to introduce a dog into our family, we were looking for an older dog who was used to living with cats. Well that was the plan. We spent a while looking visiting rehoming centres, keeping our sensible heads on, until we met Zac! It was then our hearts took over. At less than a year old, a Belgian Malanois, high energy, super intelligent, handful to say the least. It hasn’t been easy and there have been many challenges. Steven has been absolutely amazing and while we still have a long way to go the change in him is unbelievable. I think sometimes it is easy to forget how far you have come, but Steven has been with us every step of the way. We cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done for us so far. More...

We had our first 1:1 with Steven on Tuesday and wow was it an eye opener! Not ashamed to admit it as first time dog owners but we’d been doing so many things wrong and enforcing certain behaviours with our two bear coat shar Pei puppies Luna 1 year and darcy 4 months! Looking forward to our next 1:1 to continue the work we’ve started an hopefully be in a position to join and enjoy the group behaviour dog walks in the near future, thank you More...

Without doubt one of the best decisions we made was turning to Steven for help with our rescue Dougie. Home visits and classes really helped but the week we spent with Steven had by far the biggest impact we could of hoped for. 6 months on and our walks and our life with Dougie is so much better. Still work to do, we know with Steven's ongoing support we can achieve what we once thought impossible. Thank you. More...

Our Irish Wolfhound, Logan, had started to be a real attention seeker and this had escalated since the addition of a foster place to a further IWH. Steven immediately spotted the errors of our ways and discussed how we were encouraging the behaviour. After just a few training sessions we were able to change our behaviour and could see the pact on the dogs straight away. This has improved steadily with every visit.
Steven is a very honest, knowledgeable and straight talking guy. I would recommend him extremely highly for sorting out the problems at the handle end of the lead!!!!!

11 weeks ago our 4 yr old rescue dog reacted to other dogs so badly that I was scared to walk her and a different behaviourist said she was untrainable. With Steven's training we are now able to walk her on the park unmuzzled without her reacting....the transformation is remarkable. Steven has supported me all the way and I would recommend him a million times over! More...

Since starting training with Steven a year ago my dog has come on leaps and bounds, he's still quite reactive but he's learning to be relaxed when meeting other dogs, or should I say Im learning to be more relaxed! The training sessions that I attend on a Monday evening for a training walk are really good too as I can learn to deal with things that I would come across when walking my dog on my own. I would highly recommend attending these classes as they really help and put you and your dog to the test but help you to deal with different situations! More...

Steve has helped us and Luna (GSD) overcome the challenges that faced her after losing her brother Oscar. We started going to his classes a couple of years ago and we are still going because Luna loves it, we also now take Ginny our Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. We are all ways learning new things because no two dogs are the same. More...

My husband and I were struggling with our 6 month old puppy becoming increasingly aggressive and possessive. Having tried lots of different techniques, we were at the end of our tether and life was becoming increasingly stressful. We had loads of toys for our puppy to play with yet she never played with them. Her recall was getting worse and she was demanding so much of our attention, our lives become totally focussed on our puppy. We searched online but nothing worked and we were getting so confused with the sheer volume of differing opinions online. We got in touch with Steven because of a recommendation from a friend. I will honestly never look back and never hesitate to invite Steven into my home to help with a dog, ever again. Steven has helped us to understand our puppy SO much better. He has taught us about the importance of praise and she now plays on her own ALL the time! It's not a struggle to keep her off the kitchen floor anymore and she is so much more responsive to us. The stress levels that we have from our puppy have decreased by 100% and we are once again completely in love with her! Although not totally there yet (we only saw Steven for the first time two months ago!), her control issues have almost gone and we're working hard to get her recall up to scratch. Our puppy has become an utter joy to have once again and it's all thanks to the valuable lessons that Steven has taught us. I now recommend Steven to anyone with a dog, even if they don't have issues like ours did! It's great to learn just how dogs think and behave, why, and how we can teach them to live in our world.

We have known Steve for a few years now and he worked wonders with our last rottie, who had been badly treated with her previous owners- she had serious issues with people and other dogs and with a lot of patience and persistence Steve helped us help her to chill out and not see everyone and every dog as a threat. We now have another rottie puppy who is 6 months old and Steve is helping us teach her some manners, along with recall and walking on the lead nicely. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who needs a hand training their best friend. More...

Dog Training

just basic dog training which didn't help my dog in any way.

Q&As

Helping dog owners understand their dogs in a way they have not done before. Lets see the world from your dogs post of view, lets see how your dog interprets your behaviour!

To help other dog owners. I struggled with my first two dogs and decided to learn about how dogs interpret human behaviour so I can help other dog owners avoid the mistakes I made!

I offer something different as I help you view th world from your dogs point of view as then you can understand why they behave the way they do! I can then help you change how you behave so your dog changes their behaviour and you will be training your dog a lot, that's a promise!
