     Behaviour Problems

As a qualified dog behaviourist and trainer I combine my training experience with my knowledge of behaviour to help owners overcome and understand their dogs issues.

Dog behaviour can be cute and endearing or it can be destructive or drive you up the wall. In most cases behaviour problems are really communication problems.

Due to the high quality of my work and as a full member of the CFBA I am recognised by Pet Insurance companies as a dog trainer and dog behaviourist to accept vet referrals for behavioral issues. If your pet insurance policy covers behavioural issues you may be able to claim back my fees, whereby all you will have to pay is your excess.

         Dog Aggression
Dog Aggression
I understand that owning an aggressive dog can be a very emotive, frustrating and sometimes embarrassing situation. It can affect relationships, lifestyles and turn owning a dog into a chore rather than the pleasurable experience it should be.

In light of this I offer a comprehensive service designed specifically for dealing with dogs with aggression issues.

     Tracking and scentwork
Cartoon Dog tracking
A dog is "tracking" when he is following the scent trail or disturbed vegetation scent, left by a person (or other animal) that has travelled along a certain route. Following a track is one of the many useful things dogs can do to help people. Dogs can be trained to track game, rescue dogs ,track lost children, police dogs track suspects, well trained pets can find lost items.

Tracking is a natural skill possessed by all dogs. Dogs that are trained to track people or animals are taught how to focus their skill and attention to complete a specific task. You can start teaching your dog to track with a minimal investment, although as you and your dog advance in skill and complexity, you’ll want or need more specialized equipment. Even if you don’t want to train your dog for a professional tracking career or for tracking trials, the exercise and time together will benefit both you and your dog
