Behaviour and training

Behaviour modification and training

Dogs can develop behavioural problems for a number of reasons, which in turn will cause worry for their owners. Problems such as newly developed fears, unwanted jumping up, and aggression are not uncommon. Mike can provide help when these situations arise offering solutions to give you and your dog a better relationship.

A one to one consultation lasts approximately two hours. Mike will take as many details of your dog as you can provide to assist in exploring the behaviour problems that are being displayed and reach a practical solution. Follow-up sessions can be arranged if necessary, and Mike provides free telephone and email support for two months following consultations.

Mike has worked and trained police dogs in various disciplines. He holds a Level 5 Diploma in Canine Behaviour and Training and is a Member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers.
