Taking bookings NOW for March

I imagine you've found yourself here because you're really not enjoying your life with your dog. You're finding their behaviour a constant battle - it's upsetting, frustrating, and sometimes just downright embarrassing.

It's not at all what you imagined when you first thought about getting a dog, but you just don't know where to turn to next.

I hear you! So many of my clients have dogs who struggle with one or more of the following...

  • Barking frequently
  • Pulling or thrashing about on lead 
  • Not coming back when called 
  • Reacting badly to other dogs, people, or vehicles 
  • Jumping up at visitors 
  • Taking or eating items they shouldn't have 
  • Chasing people or moving objects 
  • Showing distress or destroying things when you leave them alone 
  • Whining, barking, howling, or sickness in the car
  • Guarding resources or family members

If this is the case with your dog too, it's likely they're just lacking some of the basic concepts they need to make really good behaviour choices.  But don't worry, we can teach them that!

Take a look at your support options below to find out how I can help you.

Who am I and how can I help you?

Hello and welcome! I'm delighted you found me! At last, you can stop the endless search for solutions... they're all here!

I'm Hazel and this is Jack, my  cheeky demo dog (not a very original name, I know, especially for a French Jack Russell, but it's the one he came with so we kept it). He came from the refuge with just about every behaviour struggle you could possibly imagine! So don't worry... you're in the right place - I understand what you're going through, and I have some solutions for you!

My mission is simple: to make sure no dog-human relationship is ever lost. A mission that supports overwhelmed dog owners, just like you, to become the very best guardian for their dog, no matter how challenging their dog's behaviour might be, and to enjoy the life they always dreamed of when they first decided to get a dog.

Want to know more?  Watch this 30 minute interview to find out more about me, my reactive rescue Jack, and how I can help you with your dog.

What methods will we use to transform your dog's behaviour?

Unlike traditional dog training, games-based concept training is based on the most up to date scientific research.  It takes a holistic approach to teaching your dog the skills they need to make successful behaviour choices in real-life situations.  

This means arming yourself with the right tools and knowledge so that you can teach your dog the skills they need to navigate life successfully, whilst at the same time learning how to manage the environment to set your dog up for success.

It's a journey...

Think of it as a journey, from your starting point now - your dog pulling on lead, reacting badly to other dogs, chasing joggers, etc - whatever your dog's behaviour struggle might be, to where you want to get to - that dream life you had in mind when you first got your dog.

That might be barbecues with friends, coffee in a cafe, dinner in a restaurant, or an off-leash run in the park.

Whatever your goal for your dog, I'm here to help you make that dream a reality.

What does the training look like?

Games-based training involves playing quick fun games with your dog, games that you can play in the comfort of your own home and garden, and out and about on walks too!  

These games teach your dog powerful concepts that once learned can help your dog to make really great behaviour choices in real life situations.

We currently work with around 15 concepts! Here are just a few...

What do the games look like?

See me and Jack playing the game FUNder! It's one of Jack's favourites!  This game:

  • Builds a really great bond between you and your dog 
  • Teaches your dog that access to the world happens through you
  • Decreases the chances of your dog involving themselves in things that are none of their business - such as other people's picnics!
  • Makes you one of the best places in the world for your dog to hang out, meaning they are always going to want to come back to you
