Dog Training

If your dog has some obedience issues such as pulling on the lead, not coming when called, jumping up, toilet training the likelihood is that you will need a trainer

A dog trainer helps you to teach your dog to perform specific tasks or actions. They can also teach your dog not to do certain things such as barking and not rushing through doors.  Trainers are like pet school teachers.

  • Building confidence
  • To come when called

Dog Behaviourist

The focus of behaviourists are similar to a pet physiologist and they will be able to understand, assess and work on resolving abnormal problem behaviours.

These are things like separation anxiety, reactivity to other dogs, nervousness, over exuberance, resource guarding and aggression. 

The behaviourist will need to change how the dog ‘feels’ and use specialist behaviour modification techniques to change the emotions of the dog. They deeply understand the normal behaviour of the dog and spends time counselling owners about they way they interact with their dog and how to help them. 

The process generally takes longer than training as changing emotions is a more complex process.
