My Philosophy

Published on November 11, 2014, by in Uncategorized.

I have been training dogs over the past 10 years in many areas such as Obedience, Agility, Search and Rescue, Protection and Competitions whilst completing Canine Behaviour and Training degree programme and competing in various Trials and competitions.

In this time, from studying Dog Psychology and Behaviourism and from working with many different personalities of dogs I developed a different style and mod

ern approach to dog training thanks to many influences,…. mainly the dogs and their owners. An approach that is founded on the genuine love for dogs and appreciation for their nature. My main priority is the dogs happiness and your comfort with the dog. This is achieved through my balanced dog training approached based on real life rewards, positive reinforcement and bond building.

My ambition is to spread this balanced dog training approach while in parallel using training fees acquired to build a permanent dog club.
