"Thank you for the training this morning you are inspirational and Finley really enjoys the sessions"
MY APPROACH TO TRAINING
"ALTHOUGH MY JOB TITLE IS "DOG TRAINER", I COACH MY CLIENTS TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND THEIR DOGS AND IMPROVE THEIR LIVES"
Support can range from puppy training and advice, problems such as pulling on the lead or not coming back when called, to helping with a behavioural issue which is causing a problem between you and your dog. I also support families who have a child who is fearful of dogs.
My goal is to support you and your dog through positive, force free and rewarding techniques.
I use only scientific, positive based techniques and would never condone a harsh, aversive or forceful approach
I am an accredited IMDT member and trainer (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) and studied with the International School of Canine Psychology & Behaviour (ISCP), achieving a level 5 diploma in canine behaviour (with distinction) in May 2020. I am also an approved KAD (Kids around Dogs) approved pro, helping children overcome their fears and teaching them how to interact with dogs.
Having grown up in a family who always had dogs, from a German Shepherd to a Greyhound and Labrador, I know how important and rewarding a positive relationship between dog and owner can be. I now care for my own big and fluffy Labradoodle.
I will always continue my personal development to ensure I can provide you with the most appropriate, force free solutions.
I have also volunteered at Danaher Animal Home as a dog walker, helping numerous and various dogs.
As a dog trainer and behaviourist in the Coggeshall area, I look forward to working with you and your canine friend, either in person or via Zoom.
As an Assessed and Qualified Member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (www.imdt.uk.com) I am proud to display the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter symbol
“Positive methods aren't about over-indulgence or ignoring negative behaviours. They involve rewarding the behaviour you want the dog to repeat and preventing the behaviours occuring that you don't want your dog to keep rehearsing”
