INFORMATIONI passed the COAPE Higher Diploma Year 1, The Principles in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training DipCABT (QCF Level 4)in 2016 with a Grade A Distinction, having previously acquired the Level 3 Diploma in 2006. I have been a professional dog trainer since 2005, and working with behaviour cases since 2006.
This is a great way for me to provide help and advice for new puppy owners, covering puppy life skills, general training, and providing bespoke help for individual behaviour and training needs (eg, mouthing, toilet training, separation issues). 121 is also good for adolescent and adult dogs where fine tuning of training can be provided (eg, recall, jumping up, etc), and is great for rescue dogs that often come into their new home with existing training/behaviour problems.
This is on veterinary referral only and is for problems such as fear/nervousness, aggression, separation issues, obsessive compulsive behaviours, etc.
These are held in Broadbridge Heath, West Sussex. Only positive, kind, reward-based methods are used. I offer, Puppy life skills classes, Beginners courses, and Progression courses.
All training is kind, fair and reward-based (ie, no aversive methods are used). I also do clicker training.
