ABOUT MY TRAINING METHODS
In my training, your dog's wellbeing is my #1 priority, and I 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. When working to change an existing behaviour, I will help you to manage the environment to set your dog up for success, and from there we will work together to teach them what you do want them to do instead.
I abide by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainer's Code of Ethics.
