Behaviour Therapy

I help dogs who are suffering from a range of behaviour issues such as lead frustration, reactivity, anxiety, fears and phobias. I avoid using treat training for behaviour therapy as these do not usually help to change the dog’s emotional state of mind. All my methods are  kind, gentle and ethical without any use of punishment or cohesion. My core focus is to work with your dog’s emotions and teach you communication skills as well as teaching you their language and how to teach, I also teach you how to use communication and language to help your dog overcome their behaviour issues. Behaviour issues are a symptom of your dog’s emotional mind not being able to cope, so we build beneficial coping mechanisms in order for your dog to gain true confidence and resilience.

Online Behavioural Consultation

I have worked with a range of behavioural issues over the years and I have learnt that it is not necessary to see what your dog does in order to resolve issues. Behavioural issues are not often displayed at a home visit so I don’t get to see them anyway, and I would never set up a situation just for the dog to display them, so in cases where the dog would react if I was to visit, I meet the clients in an alternative location.

Asking the right questions to understand the reasons behind the issues is the key to knowing what to put into place to resolve them. Once I have the full picture, we will discuss the circumstances that led to your dog’s issues, and detail the strategy to put in place to reach a successful outcome for you and your dog. I use Free Will Teaching (click here to learn more) which is a framework that addresses your dogs emotional and physical needs. I teach you to understand his language and communicate with him to teach and guide him to self-awareness and confidence, which changes his perception and gives him the ability to choose a different course of action which is much healthier for his mind.

With more complex cases we do recommend booking our After Care Plus Programme ( See below).

The consultation involves;

A comprehensive break down of your dog’s behavioural issues.

The reasoning behind your dog’s behaviour

How to apply free will teaching

How to communicate with your dog

How to teach your dog language

How to help your dog overcome their issues

How to teach your dog to be self-aware and regulate their emotional mind.

Note that the strategy we put in place will not be based on finding time for training sessions. Instead, it is applied as part of your daily life.

Complimentary After Care;

A written report with notes and information

A dedicated Facebook membership group

1 follow up phone call two weeks after the consultation

1 further follow up phone call a month after the consultation

I don’t offer “quick fix” training solutions as what may seem like a fast solution to a problem often creates an even more severe problem further down the line. This will then cost you much more time to fix what has been broken, short term is never the answer. I can show you how to fix the problem long term. Each dog is different and I treat every case individually so some dogs may change their behaviours quicker than others but the key to all success is time, patience and consistency. My therapy Methods are different from traditional old school trainers and reward based trainers, you may have been let down previously by a professional but I am degree qualified, accredited and attend annual seminars and conferences in order to keep up to date on canine cognition research. I don’t focus on conventional training, I focus on teaching and this is why no longer practice training methods, but focus solely on Free Will Teaching methods. What I offer is vastly different from mainstream behaviour training or obedience training and I can’t wait to share this with you.

When you invest time into learning your dog, you will both reap the rewards quicker, our expert advice and therapy programmes will help guide you to each success throughout your teaching journey. We provide you with all the information, strategies and confidence for you to take control of stressful situations.
