Training & Behaviour Services and Holistic Grooming

Training and Behaviour Consultations

I am a Qualified Trainer with the IMDT and Canine Principles and also a Canine Behaviour Practioner (iscp.dip.canine.prac) with the ISCP. I work only with positive and holistic methods and proven scientific processes to work with you and your dog to achieve your end goals. We will create a plan between us of what your expectations are, what the dogs needs are and to help you understand the learning process, how to achieve it and the steps in between. 

My favourite area is rescue, i've been around rescue dogs and ran my own dog rescue for a number of years, so i understand probably more than most how much dogs need our help to adapt to our lifestyles and how important it is to take baby steps. I have 4 of my own, who aren't without issues, but are loved, companions and most importantly, safe from their previous lives. But it's taken alot of work to get them where they are today.

I also take on seperation anxiety cases as this really fascinates me! It's all done via zoom and you get daily training plans from me during a 6 or 8 week course, as wellas zoom calls twice weekly and i'm contactable via what's app too.

Behaviour Work

I take on 1:1 behavioural clients, and my prices start from £150 per hour for behaviour cases, and again, i'll work with you all to create a plan to help you and your dog. I totally understand. I've been that person crying behind a tree because my reactive dog has crocodile rolled and screamed his way through life. But I also know that there is a way out! Please contact me via email for behaviour cases.

Dog Grooming Services

It's a minefield trying to find a good groomer, and one that understands the needs of your dog. I take positive grooming very seriously and would never put a dog in a situation they aren't happy with. It doesn't help either of us. I'd rather spend time with the owners going through slow steps, getting nails clipped one by one, doing introductions at an early age to the varying stages of grooming. Think about it. As a young pup, or an older dog, if you've never seen a hair dryer before, or heard a pair of clippers or had anyone handle your feet, how would you feel? 

Depending on your dogs needs and happiness and what you are wanting to achieve out of your grooming session is most important. The grooming process is so important to both your dog and me and I want them to be completely happy with every stage. I'm an in-house groomer, so i come to you, which i find helps the dog to relax alot more!

I work on a 1:1 basis and also holistically, and always work with you and the dog to make sure that they are happy with the process. I have a Holositic Dog Grooming Diploma and always apply this to my work. 

Freework sessions (otherwise known as a meet and treat session for 30 mins) are our introductions to the dog and me, by way of buliding the dogs confidence and hacing some fun, but aso slowly introducing the dog to some of the grooming equipment i use as well, so that i can assess what we need to work on and how i can move forward with your grooming sessions. These are priced at £25 for 30 mins (although i often overrun because these are my favourite sessions of all!).

 

And that's what the ultimate goal is. A happy, healthy, well groomed dog that is more than happy to see me when i turn up with my noisy dryer and table, or a happy, well socialised (not always just running around with other dogs) trained dog. And a positive relationship between you and your dog, using holistic positive methods only.
