Behaviour training PAWS helping dog owners understand their dogs and live happy lives...
there are no quick fixes for bad behaviour, many times we treat only the symptom and not the cause by getting your dog training right the first time you can save frustration and heartache in the future.
We can help you understand what is going on in your dog's mind and why behaviours are born. Using only positive methods of reinforcement and clearly showing your dog what you want him to do opposed to what you don't makes for a great learning environment. Dogs that are physically forced into obedience, or trained though outdated punishment methods are fearful, unhappy, confused and stressed.
We specialise in rescue and fearful dogs, but also help with common behavioural issues such as:
- Rescue settling in
- Dog on dog aggression
- Resource guearding
- Lead aggression
- Fears and phobias
Full Consultation - £250.00
This is a bespoke programme to identify any behavioural problems you have with your dog and create a training programme to help you understand and modify the behaviour. Initial questionnaire completed via email, then a consultation in your home environment where we can observe and identify any underlying motivations and emotions behind the problem areas. With the knowledge gained from this, we will write a full report and training plan that will give you a behaviour modification programme that will be tailored specifically to you and your dog.
Further support is offered via media for the first month.
We base all of our training on science-based positive reward methods.
We hold training classes that are based on the behavioural scientific needs of your dog with an aim to give your dog an acceptable outlet for the natural behaviours that normally get them into trouble, like prey drive (chasing things, running off) this will help to build the bond between owners and their dogs. Our team are friendly and approachable we provide an informative relaxed environment to help you learn at your own pace.
We provide group workshops and can also deliver private lessons. All training provided will be delivered in a force free permission-based learning environment using evidence-based practices.
These are ideal for owners that need specific help or dogs that are nervous around others. We can help you work on any area of your training you are struggling with and hopefully give you a better understanding of what drives your dog's behaviour and how to motivate a better response which should help build a stronger bond with your dog.
We can work on the common problems:
- Lead skills
- No focus
- Car travel
- Sit stay
- Leave it
We do not allow customers to train using harsh training handling techniques when working with their dog this includes the electronic "Shock" collar Choke Check collar Pinch Prong collar. Any handler using this type of equipment or methods with their dog will not be permitted to continue.
All dogs should be micro chipped and carry identification compliant with current UK law.

Diet and Behaviour
There are many debates around food and hyperactive behaviour...
Just like children dogs can be affected by what they eat but finding the 'best' food for your dog can be a minefield full of fantastic advertising campaigns and wonderfully packaged products. There is a guide called 'allaboutdogfood' that can help you through this, created by David Jackson a canine nutritionist, you can search by breed and weight or simply check out the score out of 5 and it's easy to use, Take a look at the link below.
Did you know for a can of dog food to be labelled ‘with chicken’, it only needs to contain 4% chicken! We think our dogs deserve better and are now ambassadors for Butternutbox it is freshly prepared and cooked like you would at home. It is delivered frozen in perfect little sealed portions that are easy to store. Take a look at the link below to get a massive discount off your first order.
