Hallam's Happy Hounds Training and Behaviour Co.
I offer a tailored programme of training or behaviour modification for your dog(s). It can be starting you and your dog on the right path to build a solid and strong relationship that will last for a lifetime, or it can be to train a dog to do something, that would prevent it from 'doing something else, that you don't want' i.e. an unwanted behaviour.
Working with all sorts of breeds, at all different ages and stages of training a start point is identified and clear goals set. These are for the behaviour that you require from your dog, not the time frame in which it is needed as all dogs/owners work differently and make up a very unique combination.
I have trained the basics to puppies through to golden oldies, have worked extensively with rescue dogs and can identify why they are sometimes in a position where they have been offered up for rehoming.
Behaviour modification is a more intense repeated behaviour such as biting, or an excessive behaviour and requires a more in-depth review of why this is happening and methods to move the dog forward.
So I do offer the basics of teaching your dog to sit, down, wait, engaging with you whilst on the lead, recall, manners with visitors, to the more extensive aggression and excessive barking, and working through separation anxiety/distress issues..
I have a family group of 19 dogs at this time made up of 80% rescue dogs, all different breeds, and for all different reasons. Not only has this enabled me to see the impact of living with some intense behaviours it has also enabled me to see how other dogs interact with these dogs to enable them to inhabit the same space with in the family home, which is a medium size 3 bedroom house (no mansion) and an average size garden.
With this 'in-house' training that I have received I am in a unique position to help you with your pet. At the end of the day it's about your dog and enabling them to develop 'life skills' to live in the human world.
