SAFE AT HOME Dog Training and Behaviour Correction

Please email me on my direct email shown on the link if you require a quick response. I am quite busy with training at the moment and don’t often have time to check the Bark site so emailing me direct will get a quicker response. Thank you. Hi WHO AM I My name is Beverly I have been working with dogs for over 35 years. I am trained by IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) and follow a positive reinforcement approach to training. Over the years, I have studied with many other organisations such as BAT (Behavioural Adjustment Therapy) which is specifically for anxious and reactive dogs. Also the TBTE (Training Behind The Ears) which again helps reactive dogs. Like humans, one size does not fit all, and I have gained many tools in my bag to help most situations. WHAT DO I OFFER I am fully insured, offer face to face sessions in your own home, online training by zoom or teams, general advice over the phone. I do not advocate training groups so do not offer this facility. The majority of my work is behavioural correction rather than puppy training although I can help with that as well. I have worked with many owners who have dogs with specific or many bad ‘habits’ and behaviours, reactivity, anxiety, rescue dogs and dogs from overseas. I run workshops for owners to learn about dog psychology without the complicated scientific jargon. I was once described as offering ‘uncomplicated methods that work and that any owner can understand and implement’. That about sums it up. I also head up a post adoption team for a nationwide dog re-homing charity to give advice to owners after adoption. This give the owners and dog the best chance of forming a bond and ensuring the dog is able to remain in that home and live his or her best life. CONTACT ME If you think I can help you, do get in touch. You can send me a private message via my Facebook page ‘SAFE AT HOME’ and hit the message button. Summing up what I offer: ‘My Ability to give clients clear, uncomplicated tools to achieve their goals without baffling them with science’ The training I offer and prices charged can all be seen in the SERVICES section below. This is not exhaustive so please call or email to discuss your particular problem

What do you love most about your job?

Being able to help build a bond between dog and owner and ensuring the dog has the best life possible.
Being able to give the owners the tools to resolve problems with their dog which are causing stress and anxiety in the home.
Educating owners to be able to see their dogs behaviour in a completely different light

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have always had a passion for dogs. It wasn’t what I did first in my career - I studied law. However, I was never completely happy with my choice of career and studying dog behaviour was a welcome hobby which I realised gave me so much reward that I studied more and more until I was able to work with dogs full time.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am uncomplicated
I get results
I have a natural affinity with dogs
I am approachable and easy to talk to
I don’t offer a one-size-fits all approach. All dogs are individuals
I don’t just show you and abandon you - I work with until you tell me you’ve got this.


Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I can provide an element of help remotely but nothing beats face to face especially if it is an ingrained problem.

I do work online, especially through the pandemic, we had no other choice and I found that, if the owner sent through short videos, it helped enormously. Online is quite good for follow up sessions or to tweak training or answer any questions following the face to face session(s).

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I do a LFT everyday before attending a session
I wear a face covering in the home and I remain a safe distance from clients
I carry hand gel which I use all the time

Dog Training FAQs

Expand all

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).

Yes! You might be surprised to hear that dog training can be done remotely, through online video platforms like Zoom. They can take the form of group sessions or one-to-one classes to tackle certain individual behavioural issues. Many customers prefer online dog training for all sorts of reasons, like saving on travel time and costs.
