Support and guidance through the teenage phase as you guide him to adulthood.
I teach adolescents to learn to control their impulses, manage their frustrations and cope with their hormones.
From mid September I will be offering a new service for young dogs age 6 months to 2 years. This is a typically difficult time in a dogs life, as hormones and drives come into play and many dogs struggle with self control.
The service involves me visiting your home while you are at work and working with your young dog helping them cope with their frustrations, teaching Impulse Control and leading into related issues such as Recall, Lead Work, Control around Food and other dogs.
In the professional world we are increasingly seeing that dogs that spend a lot of time in alternative care rapidly lose the ability to connect appropriately with other dogs or to focus on their owners while out and about so this new service is designed to help your dog become the stable adult dog that can go anywhere with you.
The service will be available 3 days per week and includes 1 hour sessions. It is designed to be an alternative to day-care options.
This session is only applicable to dogs who are comfortable with a stranger coming into your home while you are out.
Behaviour work involving aggression, separation problems, guarding and deeper issues are not included in this service.

Alternatively 1-1 personal trainng is also available.
Statistics show that most of the dogs in rescue are adolescent dogs. This is the equivalent of teenage years in a human. Many owners are unprepared for the change from lovable pup to hormonal teenager and simply don’t know what to do with them or how to handle the hormonal frustration that’s comes with them. Many owners find attending class difficult, losing their confidence as their dog seems to be the only one misbehaving.
Careful 1-1 handling with the support of a good trainer can help you to understand what is happening in your dog’s head and how to teach him to manage himself through this period.
