Online Coaching | Dog Training | Dog Walking Do you need help walking your dog during the week but struggling to find someone willing to work with your dog's behavioural needs? Have you recently welcomed a new dog into your home and looking for some guidance or maybe your dog just won't stop jumping up? Whatever you are looking for I can help train you and your dog. One of the very first online dog coaches. Offering you convenient and instant, video calls with you and your four legged friend. Whether that's in the park, your garden or in your living room. This enables you to demonstrate issues live at a time and place that suits you. . . . I operate (and teach) positive reinforcement training/lifestyle methods only and discourage; negative/punishers and dominance theory. I strive to create a mutual understanding between you and your pooch to ensure a positive experience for everyone involved (furry ones included). I have spent several years working with world leading organisations as a Specialist Dog Trainer and Rehabilitation Officer, including Dogs Trust and Guidedogs For The Blind. In that time, I have designed and delivered very specific and detailed behaviour modification and (or) training programmes. All dog behaviour stems from reinforcement not dominance theory. To change any behaviour it starts with you. How you behave with your dog, how you react, why you do what you do and then how to appropriately communicate with your dog to achieve the behaviours you want to see.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping to ensure all dogs are enjoying their day as much as we are and away from discomfort and neglect!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have worked with dogs for the last five years including as a specialist trainer and rehabilitation officer with Dogs Trust, the UK's largest dog charity, as well as The Guide Dog's for the Blind. I was also selected to work in Norway for a dog sledding adventure group as a dog handler and trail guide, working in minus 40 degree temperatures both caring for and training 30 Greenland dogs (husky types).

The majority of my work has been kennel based. During my time, I have sadly watched many dogs deteriorate in this environment and have a very stressful life for reasons that could have been avoided with proper education and handling in the first place. On the flip side I have successfully rehabilitated and trained 100's of dogs from a vast variety of issues and backgrounds.

I love all dog breeds, big, small, cute, quirky and have become an ambassador for the much maligned bull breeds. Many people have a negative association particularly with "Staffies" but in my experience they are the one of the most affectionate, communicative, gentle breeds and can make the perfect pooch with the correct handling (like all other dog breeds).

A prime example of this is my noble steed, Rocks. He like many is a rescue with a particularly harsh background and so naturally had various behaviour issues, particularly around other dogs. With time, patience and the correct training he is now much more confident around other dogs and indeed now has many many dog friends!

My passion is educating owners in how to communicate appropriately with their pooches, ideally from the moment the dog enters their life, before bad habits have a chance to take hold.

I look forward to helping you and your pooch strive to create a happy lifestyle and relationship together.

-Simon
(and Rocks)

Why should our clients choose you?

Sadly, unlike many other trainers, I will never force or put pressure on your dog. Training is about breaking down into small chunks, making it as fun an easy for our dogs as possible to ensure they have a positive association with whatever we are trying to teach them, rather than bullying them do it!

I am also able to explain complicated studies and theories into everyday life examples which will help you as the dog owner understand more about your dog and effectively train you as well as your dog!

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.
