We use a kind and gentle approach to treat the cause of your dog's issues not just the symptoms. Certified Member of the Dog Trainer Academy. We provide One to One dog training and behaviour management in your home, and online Home Schooling courses. Do you have a puppy who is biting and chewing or toilet training not going so well? or do you need your older dog to pay attention to you always, not only when you give food?

To book your FREE 15 minute consult, select your day and time through Facebook/Website or just call or text to find out more on number opposite. We offer something a bit different to other available training solutions. We like to start by using a method called the Dog Calming Code, we help the humans to communicate with the dog in a gentle way so that they understand that the humans will be providing for all their needs and protecting them, as a Parent would a child. This means that the dog can relax and just concentrate on being a dog. Knowing that they don't have responsibility of 'being in charge' takes all the pressure off boisterous, anxious and even dogs who show aggression. Once this important Foundation is in place, it is much easier for the dog to learn new skills - that's the training bit, which we do after the Foundation work has been done. Yes we teach the humans how to do this and it's not complicated and doesn't take up any more of your time in your daily life. However, part of owning a dog is to keep up the daily training, practising things they already know and teaching them new things too. It's what makes your and their life interesting and deepens the bond between you, so we teach this too!

What do you love most about your job?

It is so rewarding to help people who are stressed out with dog issues and see improvement even during the initial hours of the consultation

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having owned a dog myself who developed awful separation anxiety at the age of 10 and not finding a solution with other training methods. Desperation to find an answer led me to discover the methodology I use today, and it is such a great system I want to share it with as many people as possible.

Why should our clients choose you?

This training is based on gaining the dog’s trust and respect. Once you are recognised by your dog as a worthy leader, all the general obedience training then becomes relatively easy, because your dog will want to obey you, to please you - not just for treats!

It is all about winning the mind of the dog. I will show you the mind game that every dog is playing, the rules of the game according to your dog and how to win!

Applying the 5 Golden Rules of the Dog Calming Code eliminates unwanted behaviour through treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. I will help you to understand what signals you have been sending your dog so that you can recognise why they have been behaving in a particular way and how you can change it.

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.
