Behavioural Modification and Rehabilitation
Our behavioural modification and rehabilitation programmes are bespoke to the specific problematic behaviours your dog may be exhibiting. I will aim to help you fully understand the psychology behind your dogs behaviour and put together practical steps to make the change for a more positive, relaxed and happy dog. I only use positive, kind methods based on the most up to date scientific principles of behaviour modification that will help to reduce stress, and build your dogs confidence and relationship with you. I will work closely with your vet, and provide full behavioural reports and training plans in addition to practical training sessions together. Please see the behavioural page for more information:
