A new wave of dog training is last.

I am a Force Free trainer. A dog behaviour specialist using positive reward based non aversive, no pain no fear training techniques.

You will find many dog trainers out there, some qualified, some not.

What’s important is finding one with an understanding of the scientifically proven methods that work.

Methods that have been researched and tested.

I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to help you.

Each dog is a unique personality, with unique behaviours, lifestyles, beliefs and understandings of the big wide world. No different to us.

What helps in the dog training world is if you work with a trainer who has that understanding, the right education and training, the right tools, is non judgemental and it also helps if they have sense of humour.
