Training Ethics

ABOUT MY TRAINING METHODS

In my training, your dog's wellbeing is my #1 priority, and I use never use intimidation, fear or pain. 

When training I use food, toys or any other rewards that your dog finds motivating. If we wouldn't work for free, why should our dogs?

What works for one dog may not work for another, so I'll help you to find what does work for your individual dog. 

There are no quick-fix solutions or magic wands in behaviour modification or training but in our sessions I will equip you with the tools to confidently train your dog in order to reach your goals. 

I abide by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainer's Code of Ethics
