Gentle dog training

The best way to meet all your goals of creating a happy dog and productive bond between all of you, is through positive reinforcement, also known as rewards based dog training – scientifically proven to be the fastest and most fun way to train dogs…and people!

Happy relationships

Positive reinforcement creates happy relationships at either end of the lead. I will help you and your dog learn and be successful, one step at a time. By being patient and using force free methods, your dog will learn to volunteer behaviour that you love more often, instead of you having to ask for it.  I will teach you how to effectively communicate with your dog and understand how he or she is feeling, through their body language. These humane teaching methods work with dogs (and people) of all types, regardless of their issues!

Dog training & behaviour modification for these issues:

  • Teaching calmness for puppies/dogs who jump up, nip, bark or other unruly behaviour.

  • Effective communication based on positive interactions so your dog is happy and attentive.

  • Heeling or walking nicely on a loose lead.

  • Coming reliably when called, especially when distractions are present.

  • Teaching your dog to sit, stay, lie down and stand.

  • Toilet training.

  • Timid/fearful puppies or dogs.

  • Calm greetings with other dogs, people and when the doorbell rings.

  • Separation anxiety.

  • Timidity or fear aggression around other dogs, people or children.

  • “Relax on mat”, to reduce attention seeking, teach calmness  and thereby help eliminate anxiety and other unwanted behaviours.

  • Games (such as retrieving) and tricks that include “say your prayers,” “play dead”, “take a bow”, or to bark on cue.

  • Resource guarding of food or toys etc.
