Dog Training

Dog Training


Many owners resign themselves to accept that their dog will bark all the time, destroy the house, growl at people, jump up…the list goes on. This simply isn’t behaviour you have to live with – for just about every problem you can think of, I can help you find a remedy.

I offer training sessions for you and your dog to help you tackle any issues you might be having on a one to one basis, either at Just Paws or in your own home depending on your problems. I cover everything from basic obedience, to aggression problems, I also specialise in livestock socialisation problems. There is normally a reason behind every bad or unwanted behaviour and I am here to help you find that reason and work through it.

As a veterinary nurse I spent many an appointment talking to owners with new puppies or rescue dogs about how to overcome their dog’s problems, issues, and general over exuberance, but found that a 10 minute consult in a vets really wasn’t long enough to make a real difference. Now I work for myself, an hour with me really can make a drastic difference to how your dog behaves, how they feel about their owners and most importantly how the owners feel about their dogs.

It is possible to teach old dogs new tricks, and to stop young ones learning them in the first place!

I don’t offer classes, or group tuition as all dogs are different and things that work well for one dog, will be completely irrelevant for others. I offer value for money, practical skills and advice and if you follow my lead, I know we can make a difference to you and your dog’s relationship.

I explain the reasons behind my techniques, in terms of how the dog thinks about things, so you can go out into the real world and start understanding what they are thinking of getting up to, and controlling their behaviour without them even noticing you do it!

My methods are simple and easy to follow for both you and your dog, I don’t rely on treats, or complicate things with devices either. My mission is to help you get your dog wanting to do the things you ask, for no other reason than that they love you and want to please you. That REALLY is possible!

I teach calmness. Your dog will learn to control their unwanted behaviours themselves, with gentle back up from you to make it easy for them. Soon your unruly pets will have self control and will choose to do the right thing themselves, because they want to!

No more hauling them about on a lead with them strangling themselves, and pulling your arms out of their sockets, no more hanging off a harness, no more barking at other dogs, aggression, nerves, bolting away, chewing, not coming when called… the list goes on!

I really can make a big difference in as little as 1 session!
