"With every animal you have to build it's confidence around people, because people do some crazy things." Ian Dunbar
Although we have been living with domesticated dogs for around 15000 years, canine behaviour can be extremely difficult to understand.
We love our dogs that's for sure, but from anxiety and stress related disorders, destructive behaviours, fears and phobias, aggression / reactivity, ultimately sometimes we are left in despair, overwhelmed and even to the point of surrendering. Which is difficult on everyone.
Having experienced my own dog with separation anxiety, a destructive adolescent with a strong predatory drive, I can empathise and know first hand your frustration and heart ache.
Since entering the industry 12 years ago I have had an increase in pet dog owners calling to walk their dogs as they have lost confidence due to reactivity and aggression. Understand your dogs perspective and how to create a world where they feel safe. I want to get YOU behind the leash and both of you loving your walks again. No more hiding behind bushes or walking late at night to avoid other people and or dogs.
Our training methodology is positive reinforcement, using a clicker " Clicker Training", this type of learning is called operant conditioning. Clicker training is the fun and an extremely fast way to train an animal.
If you are at your wits end, help is not far. Please get in contact and together we can move towards a happier, more harmonious life with your dog.
