Lead The Way

Lead The Way

Whilst there are many different theories out there on how best to train your dog or work on behavioural issues, my main approach is to always to ensure the happiness and stability of your dog. I believe in positive reinforcement over the pack leader theory as not only do I not believe it to be the best approach, but this is often used incorrectly resulting in an unhappy, confused dog that behaves out of fear rather than reward.

The pack leader theory was based around Rudolph Schenkel’s studies of captive wolves back in the 1930’s and not the behaviours of a pack of wolves in the wild. On top of this, dogs are completely their own species therefore should have their own specific approach when dealing with sensitive issues that many dogs portray today.

I charge £70 for my time and this includes a 2 hour visit to your home where we can talk about any problems you have with your dog and how to start your training (I will be training you, not your dog!). There will also be a written follow up training guide to keep you on track and a 2nd visit 4 weeks down the line.
