Covering: Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire or any location on agreement

dog trainingMission statement: "Our aim is to have confident, proud and contented owners with balanced, happy and well behaved dogs".

I assess your dog, in your environment*, with your issues and develop a tailor-made solution to alleviate the problems *(some canine behaviour issues disappear when your dog is out of its comfort zone, which is why I insist on personal visits to your home).

Colin is a well respected canine behaviourist with over 20 year’s experience. He has the ability to read what your dog is trying to say to you and act as the interpreter between Canine and Human.

He works with several rescue centres, animal charities and many of the leading veterinary practices in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area. I feel my background as an associate lecturer at Derby University Business School and Derby College International Office gives me an added advantage when dealing with the public, on all levels.

The 1st stage to improving your dog’s behaviour is to admit to yourself that you have a problem and to seek help. I often hear owners say ‘I’ve had dogs all my life but I’ve never had problems before’. If that’s the case then you have been fortunate. Don’t forget all dogs are different, just like humans are. Most people forget that a dog is in fact a predator and as a predator it survives by identifying what is ‘weak’ or ‘strong’ within it’s environment.

A true predator when hunting will deliberately search out the weakest, slowest the disadvantaged in it’s prey. When a dog comes into the human world it will use it’s hardwired predator skills to identify who around him/her are weak or strong and react accordingly. The main reason that all our rescue dogs have become well behaved, balanced companions is that we do not let any weaknesses we may posses show. We always instill boundaries, rules and routines that are consistent and understandable. Many dogs become unbalanced when we try to humanize them. Dogs can become confused when we deliver mixed messages. I will help to bring some consistency to your communication.

Some canine problems can be genetic by nature, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Certain breeds of dog are more wilful than others, some have greater prey drives and hunting instincts and certain breeds have greater needs that some owners will have difficulty meeting.

Some behaviour issues may have a simple solution, so why not give Colin a call, he will offer free advice and training tips.

Please remember euthanasia should be the last resort, not the first.
