Services and CPD

Choosing the right Dog Trainer and Behaviourist is really difficult, with so many to choose from, it is hard to understand who the force free trainers actually are, as unfortunately Dog Trainers and Behaviourists are still not currently regulated in the UK,  there are a few fab organisations which ensure that their members are recognised such as IMDT, PACT, APBC, APTC, and there are probably a few more to mention too, such as Canine Hoopers UK and Gun Dog Academys who train in sports. I could go on.
Which is why I have listed my qualifications, My CPD for last couple of years and who I am accredited with, so that you can clearly see my credentials.

My experience, qualifications and accreditations will mean that I have thoroughly been interviewed, assessed and continue to 30 hours CPD each year to maintain my memberships. This ensures that I am fully up to date with the current legislations, science based methods, and force free ways of learning. This ensures that your dogs will not only be treated kindly and ethically, but they will be taught or their behaviour modified using kind and gentle approaches, ensuring that your dogs welfare is always at centre and most important point part of any training or behaviour modification that I do.  I will only use force free and positive reinforcement. This is not only ethical and kind, it ensures that a good solid relationship and understanding is created between owner and dog without having to use harsh and unnecessary tools to correct 'BAD' behaviour. 
Still not sure what would be best for you and your dog, why dont you take a look at my services which are currently on offer.
