I need behaviour help

Your dog has new or worsening behavioural problems

Embed foundational concepts

Grow key concepts like confidence (a lack of which causes reactivity), optimism, resilience, focus and impulse control. These concepts translate to life skills which enable your dog to react to real-life situations in calmer, safer, more appropriate ways.

Tackle problem behaviour

When your dog automatically looks to you for guidance in new, exciting or stressful situations (instead of running off or bouncing around at the end of the lead), you can shape their response to those situations – making both your lives easier.

Transform your relationship

Your dog’s enthusiasm to do what you ask them to do depends on how much they value their interactions with you. Concept Training using games provides engagement, novelty and mental challenges – the things dogs value the most – and you become the source of all that fun!

I’ll take you from STRESS to SUCCESS

Reactivity

Showing your dog that there are other options besides barking and lunging makes everyone’s lives calmer and safer.

Lead pulling

Reshaping your dog’s perception of walks so that they choose being close to you means happier walks for both of you.

Resource guarding

Teaching your dog to share is a valuable life skill which will keep your dog, your family and everyone else safe.

Poor recall

A truly ‘bulletproof’ recall is built on a foundation of ‘proximity value’ and a properly-conditioned cue. I’ll show you how.

Separation

Growing your dog’s confidence and self-reliance makes dealing with separation-related behaviour much easier.

Your struggle here!

Have you been told that your issue is ‘unsolvable’? That your dog is ‘untrainable’? I’ll show you otherwise.

We’ll show you how to speak your dog’s language

Learn to listen to your dog

Your dog is constantly telling you how they feel, what they do and don’t like, and what they find rewarding. Being able to interpret their language lets you communicate with them, on their terms. Your dog will look at you in a whole new way.

Preempt those outbursts

Your dog will usually be telling you that they’re getting nervous or scared long before that outburst happens. Once you can understand what they’re telling you, you can help them cope with those emotions – giving you a calmer, more confident, more predictable dog dog.

Enrich your dog’s life

Shifting from one-way communication to a real, two-way conversation with your dog has a genuinely transformational effect on their quality of life. Giving your dog a sense of agency may be the most impactful thing you can do to improve their life.

I’ll teach you to train your dog like a pro

Management

You’ll learn to manage the environment to set your dog up for success. You’ll learn to train FOR the situation, instead of trying to train IN the situation (which is a quick route to frustration and failure).

Traffic Light Training

My easy to remember, systematic approach to behaviour management and training. Learn to approach your dog’s training like a pro – to assess, manage, and then train according to their needs at that moment.

Adaptability

Once you’re thinking like a pro, you’ll be ready for pretty much anything. You’ll be able to adapt the games and strategies you’ve learned and use them in different situations, or with different dogs.

Ready to be your dog’s superhero?

When your dog looks to you for guidance – no matter what’s going on – every training ‘struggle’ becomes an opportunity.
