Popular reasons for asking for support include Outdoor Control, Reliable Recall and Inappropriate Chase / Stock Chasing ? Sheep Chasing ~ “Leave It!” . This can be supported by using our own sheep if appropriate. Also popular is support for people with reactive dogs, those presenting aggressive behaviour and those with other fear issues. We also cover tracking / mantrailing activities.
I use marker training which can includes Clicker, if you wish.
All methods are reward based, motivational, stress free and enable you to help your pet make the choice you want your pet to make. This is achieved by working with your pet as an individual and using strategies that let them learn to make appropriate choices because making those choices will be rewarding to your pet. You will merely engineer the opportunity for those choices to be made more easily and to occur more frequently.
Home visits or using our facilities available.
I am also happy to arrange to give talks and /or presentations about behaviour and training.
