INFORMATIONSmall classes from beginners to advanced level and gun-dog training for pet dogs. Training is based on rewarding all good behaviour with the use of food, games, praise and life rewards. I use a game-based approach to training as this is incredibly powerful to build desire and keenness for training. Once you have this, then any training is so much easier. However, for dogs to learn, owners need to acquire the skill to train their dogs. Training at CD Dog Training is therefore as much about training people as dogs.
As a member of the APDT, COAPE and the PPG, I subscribe fully to their codes of conduct and the motto of Kind, Fair and Effective dog training.

Last Straw, Garboldisham Road, East Harling, Norfolk, NR162PT, United Kingdom
INFORMATIONI am a fully qualified Centre of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE) Behaviour Advisor who specialises in canine behaviour and training issues. I have worked with owners and their vets to improve canine welfare over the last eight years. I am accredited with an OCN recognised COAPE Level 3 award in ‘Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation’.
I offer personal and considerate one-to-one behavioural support and training for you and your dog(s) in your own home. All the techniques I use are based on the latest scientific knowledge and involve the use of non-aversive, positive-reinforcement methods. This is a fundamental principle that runs throughout all my work. All aspects of your dog’s daily lifestyle and environment, prior history, medical background, nutrition and handling are considered when developing a specific, personalised treatment plan for you and your dog.
How can this service help you?
I have experience with helping owners with all aspects of canine parenting from puppyhood to senior years, including experience with rescue dogs and dogs with acute and chronic lifelong medical conditions whom require both immediate post-operative behavioural rehabilitation and longer term behavioural support. So, whether you and your pet need training support to walk loosely on the lead or to improve recall, whether you require help with specific behavioural issues such as aggression, separation related disorders, noise sensitivities and phobias, abnormal repetitive behaviours, impulse control and resource guarding then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss further.
I can also help with life stage advice such as helping to develop your puppy into a happy and confident dog, how to survive those teenage years or helping your older dog enjoy and live their life to the full.
I look forward to working with you and your dog.
